I've been playing in the craft room today. Firstly I had another go with a Sweet Poppy Stencil, the daffodil, just getting in a bit more practice.
Secondly, I thought I might have another play with the clock now that the paint had dried. So it's been a bit of a messy day, but it's kept me out of mischief.
I was quite pleased with cutting the circle and not making it into an oval, so that was stuck down onto the base.
Next, I decoupaged with a matching paper.
Then I added the crackle glaze, so far it hasn't crackled but I'm guessing it will over the next few hours. The numbers and workings were then added when the glaze had dried. Anyways it may be not masterpiece but it's working, so I'll be able to tell the time in the kitchen, which is all good, especially when I'm cooking.......... otherwise I have to rely on the smoke alarm.
Here's the result of the play with the daffodil stencil, I'm still having a little trouble blending, but I guess this will come in time. I hope so anyways.
I'm getting the hang of handling the micro beads anyways .......... not quite so many running around the craft room today.
I have booked into one of Eileen's workshops, just to keep Barbara company, to meet Daisy, Holly & Snowflake and also to learn first hand some of Eileen's lovely techniques.
So look out Kent because I'm coming on 17th May, lock up your men!!! and put padlocks on the bar!!!!
