Yesterday, I actually finished a 12x12 LO.....my first in ages! (There is hope for the growing pile of WIPs yet :). )
It is the heaviest use of embellishment that I have ever done and think it may have broken my fear factor...yippee.
I used Sassafras Lass 'Indie Girl' paper and stickers which I absolutely love. The flowers are Prima which I have had in my stash for a while.
The 'YOU' was handmade.....drawn, painted with acrylic paint (I mixed several colours to get the shade...wish I had written down what though lol), covered in Glossy Accent which then cracked when I hadn't let it dry enough as I cut round the letters. Still, loved the effect it left. I inked round the letters with black ink to highlight them .
Unfortunately, making up the LO didnt go as smoothly as planned which leads me to my lesson learned for yesterday....
.....I used the rest of the paint to cover a Bare Basics box. However, as I did the last time I painted a box, I looked up to find I had spattered the stuff everywhere....including on the LO which I had not moved far enough away!!!!!! That is definately what I would call a reoccuring lesson! And one, I don't think I will learn in any particular hurry lol.
(It didnt ruin it too much thankfully.....just a little adjustment here and a carefully placed sticker there!!!!!)
