That's a line from one of my favourite songs by The Beatles, as I really love the message of encouragement in it (the song was composed by Paul McCartney, as a reaction to racial tensions escalating in the United States in the spring of 1968).
I was asked earlier today what I did with the white gessoed panels (above) I showed today on WOYWW - well, here's at least one of them.
I did a lot of spraying, spritzing, heat embossing with my favourite embossing enamels, inking and blending...
I stamped the birds nest onto tissue and applied the image to the panel using Mod Podge..pardon, Mod Podgy of course (sorry, Podgy from the House of Bears, it will never happen again ;).
For making it a hanging panel, I punched two holes and bent some rust wire to shape. Done! (As Mr. Mojo seemed to have been taking his day off today, I had an awful lot of scraps with failed tries on them thrown away today until I finally was content with the result).
The bird image comes from the lovely "Periwinkle" stamp set from Kaisercraft, the birds nest image is a stamp from De Stempelwinkel's awesome collection. The alphabet stamps are my alltime favourite from Hero Arts! What would I do without them!
Ah - and just because I remember sandeeNC asking, if my son would want to show some of his fantasy combat playing cards he draws (which I mentioned in my first post for WOYWW), when we both are busy at the crafting table, I am going to show you some of them in this post right now (otherwise I forget about it):
As he wants the names of the monsters/creatures to be in English, he learns a lot of English by that. "Legendary Mystic Graveyard Master" - which other nine year old knows phrases like that? *lol
Ah..where were we? Back to the panel! Some close ups for a finish will do perfectly I guess.
Thank you all so very much for stopping by and always leaving encouraging comments with me! That really means a lot to me!
Hope you enjoyed your visit today!
