I am behind on posting! I didn’t mean to go this long without a post, so here’s a big one!
Day 35 -Today Rob, Mom and I went on a little road trip to Amherst, Nova Scotia. We did some shopping around town, and found this liquidation store that was just full of random things. I got 2 rolls of really cool printed packing tape, and tonight used it to cover the little art journal I got in Hali a few weeks ago.
Day 34 -I did the background of green and copper paint for this page awhile ago in my art journal, and I knew almost right away I wanted to use it to make a New York themed page. Collage and mixed media.
Day 33 -Today I found my inspiration for my project at the dollar store. I bought this darling little canvas (a teeny 2.75″), and it came complete with the wooden easel. Some paint, and a card from a game, and here it is:
Day 32 -Today, I finally finished a culinary masterpiece a week and a half in the making; I finally took the plunge and made real French Macarons! After reading the intense instructions, including aging your egg whites for 5-7 days, and then aging the baked and filled cookies for another 3 days. The end result was well worth all the trouble. I’ll be making another post with a little more detail and lots more photos soon, but for now, here’s a taste. They are plain macarons with Fleur de Sel caramel filling.
Day 31 -For today’s craft, I made a cute little pic with the rubber stamp I carved yesterday, using a couple of stamps from another stamp set I had bought awhile back.
Day 30 -I have been wanting a wood grain rubber stamp for awhile, so today I finally broke down and made one myself. I had some stamp carving rubber, and a carving tool, so away I went. It didn’t take me as long as I thought it would!
Day 29 – Today I hauled out the clay (air dry pottery-type, not polymer), and made a few components for pieces I’m working on. I’ve missed working with real clay! Someday I’m going to have a kiln damnit. I’m going to sand the edges, and attach them to the piece.
Day 28 – Today I finished up a couple of recipe cards I was working on. I make these and trade them just like other mail art. I always made 2 of each recipe, so I can trade one and keep the other for myself. The left shows the fronts of both cards, and the right shows the backs.
Day 27 – Today, I didn’t get any projects finished, but I was in the craft room, cutting out some quilt pieces!
