Wow, where does the day go? Unbelievably we were at school nice and early this morning, and even with a chat to one teacher, a drop-off at another class room, and an exchange of library books, I will still down into the studio with my pot of coffee by 9am… man, I was impressed!
I was even more impressed with the fact that I was able to work right through until I needed to head back to school. I ticked off what I had to in the morning, then I needed a card and even this I managed a head start on. I know, I know… shock horror, but wait there’s more. The biggest pot of soup in simmering on the stove whilst containers of curry and strog are sitting in the fridge, and Donald’s birthday cake is in the pantry. Oh, and we had chocolate muffins for supper.
But dang it, I fell asleep then before I could tell you about the Fond Farewell to Colour #6 – Taken with Teal. This is a very in your face colour but it is gorgeous. Just so happens I chose this colour with one of my cards last month for my Technique class which was water-colouring, sponging and reverse sponging. This card was water-colouring.
For the sponging and reverse sponging I did almost the same card so the full effect of these different techniques could be appreciated. Now, I don’t deny for a moment that in comparison to what else is out there, these cards are a tad simplistic but when I was designing the three of these cards I felt it better to focus on the actual technique rather then how evolved it all could become. This was left to the individual.
So on saying that… the sun rose…
… and the sun set…
As I said, it’s a very Asian feel!
