Another month gone - another week gone - and the end of my holiday! reflecting back on the two weeks what have I done? Josh had to have another "proceedure" last week which took up 3 days, Dad's birthday, we've been out a few days...all in all not a bad holiday could just do with another week if I'm honest as I'm not ready to go back yet!
Josh has gone back to school today! he is so used to being the youngest in the year with his birthday being in June, but, today he'll be the oldest - he's very fortunate to have been given a second chance at this year and I'm really hoping he'll make the most of it!
This week over at SCD its a new challenge and of course a new theme!
The challenge for September is to make Arches - these can be any size and shape that you like, but, obviously, fitting in with our theme of the week....This week's theme, Lace, has been chosen by Dawn, and its her first and first write up as DT so I hope she'll get plenty of takers this week...
So, here is my Lace Arch
The white card base was stamped using a lace stamp with versamark ink - I then dusted chalks over the image - the versamark acts as resist. The centre piece was a piece of stampbord which had been coloured with DI's and the lace stamp, this time with black ink, stamped over and hi-lighted by scratching. Prima flowers spritzed with glimmer mist, lace and pearls, and a bit of beaded trim were added before inking the outer edges.
Don't forget last months torso's swap - I have received some lovely sets and there is still time to send your's along for swapping. Email me for my addy and join in the swap!
Don't forget to pop on over to the SCD blog and see the other Lace Arches - and it would be great to see your pieces too.
Have a great weekend
