Remember that image I coloured yesterday that I didn't have any strawberry paper, even though I really thought I did.
I was just going to use the watermelon paper that I had and not worry about it.
Well if you know me, I couldn't let it go. I NEEDED some strawberry paper or I wouldn't be happy ;)
I am on a no purchasing supplies freeze this month, so a trip to my LSS or Michael's wasn't an option.
Look how committed I am, wish I was as committed on the exercise front.
So I decided to make my own background paper.
I am really happy with how it turned out :)
So here is how I did it.
I have had this stamp for over 17 yrs. I know this as a fact because my SIL, Sharon bought it for me figuring I could use it for a craft for my kitchen when we first bought this house.
First I cut a piece of paper 6"x6".
Then I stamped randomly on my paper.
Here it is all stamped up. The top center didn't get stamped very dark, but I was planning on colouring it in, plus I am going to put my image on here, so I could work around the imperfections......Also, Wayne wanted me to watch a movie with him so I had to stamp fast, lol.
I coloured the images in with my Copic markers under my tiny desk lap as we watched a freaky movie.
Hopefully I will put my card together tomorrow during Scrapbooking Night.
Onto My Day:
I worked on my mini for Heather most of the day today.
I swear I must find the longest, most difficult ways to do things. I had only completed one page. Yup one page. It is a pretty cool page if I say so myself, but still one page.
Kristy stayed late at her Co-Op today as her school is having their grade 10 testing. Because she is in grade 11 she didn't have to go to school until the afternoon. She only has one class in the afternoon, so she would have only been there for about 1/2 hour, so she stayed home. She hates to miss any school at all, but she agreed with me on this one, lol. Plus the teacher asked them how many were going to be in class today, and only one person was going.
I find it funny that I have to convince my daughter to skip out, lol....I know, chalk me up for the bad mom award ;)
Hope you all had a creative Thursday :)
