Well, it’s the beginning of a new week and so far, I think, it’s going to be a quieter week than last. My sister is finally home and on the mend. She had her fourth surgery last week . . . this one to add screws and metal plates to her knee and tibia. Mallory had some more tests last week, and we still don’t have the answer to what is causing her problems. Grasping at straws and on some advice from one of my sister’s nurses, we are now thinking gallbladder . . . hopefully I can talk to the doctor today about it. That’s the family update for now . . .
Saturday I was browsing around the internet, doing a little shopping of this and that, and decided that I needed to go through my Studio 490 sets to see what I was missing and needed. (Well of course I need them all, but . . . there is this green stuff . . . ). I was flipping through Wendy’s Studio 490 Book VI and one of her projects, Remembering Paris, on page 41 struck me. It was more her Art Parts for the project and all the layering. I was inspired!
Off I trotted to the studio and decided to try my hand at making the base pieces of the project with Printers Chipboard and my Spellbinders™. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to use Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe or A Ladies’ Diary, but got this wild idea to pull out an old Inky Antics sentiment stamp which led me to use A Ladies’ Diary.
The base was made from Printers Chipboard die cut with Grand Labels Eleven. The next layer is one die smaller with a Grand Oval in the middle, also die cut from Printers Chipboard.
From this angle, you can see the depth of the die cuts and all the layers.
The large flower was made with Grand Peony Creations and the small flowers were made with Bitty Blossoms.
The sentiment was stamped on a manila tag that had been covered with Antique Linen and Bundled Sage Distress Ink. It was die cut/embossed with Labels and Tags, then stenciled with Tumbled Glass. Can you see the faint white stamping? That’s the leaf border from Studio 490 It’s Face Art stamped in Jasmine Mix’d Media Inx.
I think I’m tired of obeying all the rules . . . I need a little fun in my life! Speaking of fun . . . it’s Summer CHA time. I had to pass on going this summer because of all the family stuff going on, but I’ll be looking for photos, videos and anything else I can find online!
Thanks for stopping by today and remember . . . life is short, make the most of the adventures that come your way!
Oh and don’t forget to come back tomorrow . . . it’s Tangle Time Tuesday #2!
