Well those turned out so well that the next week I made blueberry scones. Look at these:
My other adventures have been in color. I did make tags for Father's day and a belated Mother's day tag. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures. But they were fun color schemes... one was brown and red, the other was blue and gold. Not too much of a reach for me, but I'd like to play with them again. Since then, though, I've gone Summer-crazy:
Mom got us each a set of the new Tim Holtz seasonal ink colors. So I thought they'd be perfect with my new Michelle Ward stamps and stencils because some of those have a very Moorish or Indian feel which makes me think hot weather which makes me think bright colors and now you know why Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, and Mowed Lawn seem perfect for OnWard & UpWard. Welcome to my weird free-associating brain.
I had lots of fun with this ATC background, but I didn't know what to do with it. I now have a plan for it, but I was getting a little frustrated at creating backgrounds and not having a clue what to do with them. I like to do a project all at once. So on this next one, I did that...
I'm looking forward to making some sprays with the reinkers for these colors. Hoping to play with them a bit this afternoon. I'm off today because I had some doctor stuff to take care of (routine, no worries) and I wanted to spend at least one day of Alex's vacation with him. So once I was done with my doctor stuff, he took me to the movies to see.... BRAVE!
If you've seen the trailers or any of the promo stuff and you know me, you might be able to figure out why I'm so excited about this movie. I love the Middle Ages, I love Celtic-y stuff (my go-to station on Pandora internet radio is built off of medieval and Celtic music - here), and... well... look at Merida, then look at me:
See the resemblance?
By the way, that's Mr. Pocket's sword in that picture. He's been learning 14th Century German longsword fighting. It's only the coolest thing ever. See what an adventurous life we're living?
