Just thought I would share what it looks like when you forget that you have ALREADY opened a Mists bottle..and you try and shake it.
Um, yeah.

Grafitti Mists

I've been playing a lot lately with the idea of using the Mists in a "grafitti" type way;
These are the steps for a journal that I've just started...

Always keep an extra piece of paper handy to blot up any extra ink off of plastic or metal stencils...


The reverse side...

I have had this picture from a Life magazine..probably since Junior high..Anybody know anything about it? Who took it, maybe? It has always hung above my an encouraging kind of way. I've always empathised with the look on his face, peddling his bicycle..oblivious to the woman and the horse....

Tools of the Trade

I went yesterday to help dress up the Day of the Dead alter at Velasco's restaurant..I thought the materials looked like a fun pile of tools of the trade..:)

So the knee is definitely a torn acl..I'm just waiting on the physical therapy. Luckily I'm feeling better and mobile enough to start working on some new projects. I've been pendant crazy lately..I love the patterns being made with the metal leafing, the Palette gluepad..a little lacquer...

These are on wooden discs, decorated with the gluepad and metal leafing, some glitter and Palette Metallic inks. I wore the black one when I was in England..the rectangles are recycled metal stickers, I popped off the tacky epoxy stickers..redecorated and covered in lacquer. I especially like the fortune cookie fortune one..definitely going to do more of those!
These started as blank metal locket type pendants. I glued in a flat back mini, from, and then covered with lacquer. Up close you can see a fun layer of background paper underneath each charm.

This is a wooden disc keychain..I used a photocopy pic from my parents wedding..and gluepad decorated over and around it..aww..

Paolo for Jenny

This one is for Jen...

I used the scanned in copy of one of the blotters for
the background...just a little bit o'digital scrapping..

My Favorite Background

This one is my fav...

This was the blotter paper under the vase when I sprayed these coffee filter roses...


These are all backgrounds made from the extra Memories Mists that fall when I'm really spraying other things...

Well, I'm still laid up with the knee injury. Ugh. Tomorrow is my mri..good to get that done. I've been trying to keep busy..the projects have come to a stand still, of sorts, but I am getting some good doodling done. Plus..I did recently get a I've also been going through some of my stored stuff. This paisley was from when my mom and I had our consignment shoppe. I mimicked some of the colors of the store in the flowers...
