|Cheetah - Watercolor|
We have been really focused on finding a house soon.
Tim and I just made an offer on a place that is little more than a shell of a house (no flooring, no cabinets, sinks, bathrooms gutted).
It's a mess right now, but it would be fun installing things we like and are able to afford. We will know if our offer has been accepted tomorrow night.
|Hot glue stencils / stamps|
In the meantime, I painted the cheetah, and then
experimented with making stencils with a hot glue gun.
The hot glue was swirled on top of kitchen parchment paper. While the glue was still hot, I placed another piece of parchment paper on top of it and flattened it with my hand. When thoroughly cooled, the flattened stencils / stamps were easily peeled away from the paper.
The idea behind flattening the stencils is that they can later be attached to a piece of cardboard and used as stamps.
So that is something to look forward to.
Another positive thing is that I stumbled on the awesome site of artist Seth Apter called The Altered Page on the 10 year anniversary of his blog. Seth was hosting a giveaway on that day, and I won a gift certificate to his online shop. Happy days! Thank you, Seth!
I will pick up one of his DVDs very soon & let you know how it goes.
