Friday 15th October 2010

What another Friday? really don't know where these weeks are going....before we know it its going to be Christmas...and will I be ready? very much doubt it!! lolxx

I have a bit of a gripe this week - with these new changes to blogger I can't upload any pictures thro' my usual "firefox" thing!! I now have to go onto internet explorer and then I don't have any problems at all! why is that? OH reckons that firefox needed updating - which I did - does it work? NO! I've tried and tried and to be honest get slightly fustrated with it all - so now via internet explorer is my post!! lol

Of course, as its Friday, its SCD day!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and this week its Dawn's turn to choose the colour theme - don't forget its free for all with regard to what you make, it just has to fit in with the colours chosen....

so, Dawn has chosen:-              Orange and Black

Here is my piece:-


the base is a journalling block from Tando Creative - this was painted with trad tan acryllic paint and then using a mask I stippled the orange Dylusions paint.  The black curly corner is another piece from tando creative and this time it has been painted using viva decor gloss paint....the image is from graphics 45 and the cog another piece of Tando Creative chippie - the saying is from a stamp set by my hero Sir Tim xx

Pop on over to the SCD blog and see what the other dt'ers have come up with, there are some gorgeous pieces there, and hopefully some of you will join in....

Have a good weekend.

TFL xx
