in need of some oomph,
so in less than a minute it became this:
A lot more colourful!
I used these
homemade shimmer sprays:
More yadda yadda about how these were made, here.
The colours blended together so nicely:
(You wouldn't believe how quick it was to make it)
And if you spray over some paper,
you get nifty leavings:
Though next time I think I'd try to use thinner paper to spray it on,
since I'm trying this fun technique out...
...and the watercolour paper I used was a little too thick
to lay perfectly under the embossed bit.
No more trying to grow potatoes in pots!
Today is a big day for us: we're going to go pick out our community veggie garden plot! It's been 2 years or so on the waiting list, so though Charles can't kneel, dig, or otherwise partake in getting dirty, we are SO looking forward to growing our own veg. together for the first time!!! He can have fun passing me plants 'n' seeds and bossing me around, right? heeheehee Our dear friends have a plot there as well, so we'll get to shoot the breeze about veggies. And I'll get some much needed exercise!
Hope your weekend is shaping up to be a fabulous one,
