I took along my encaustic art work to show one friend, sure enough she had ideas about how I could use them. They seemed to be a hit with everyone, they didn't go on sale, they'll be used for something else. More of that at a later date.
Today it was time to get out the craft stuff, first job was to decorate some bits and bobs for our stall, we need display stuff, so that is all down to me to transform the old stuff. Next it was back to the wax. Well if I am to do what I want, then I need plenty of practice! I really wanted to get to grips with using stamped images and the wax, you do need to use solid or silhouette images, so I chose this clarity stamp, it is a favourite of mine. I wanted part of the image left blank, which was kind of tricky, but I just about managed, any stray bits of wax were wiped away. I kept on messing till I got an effect I liked, I just added a hint of red to the sky in the stamped image, and by a happy accident I got a nice releflection under the fairy's foot!
I should I guess take photos as I go along, but I am usually too eager to get on with making the picture! I will try to remember on Tuesday, if I get the chance of any crafting.
My mum's stairlift wasn't working properly, it started playing up on Thursday, she then forget to check it on Friday, so hardly suprising that on Saturday the damn thing wouldn't work. I did what I could but it needed the engineer, so she rang him. He first had to go to Birmingham to fix a stair lift there, which of course meant he didn't get round to fixing mum's stair lift till late afternoon, so she was stuck indoors. Thus today she was expecting me to offer to take her out, but I wasn't feeling too well, I had cystitis. I am going to Hobbycraft tomorrow, so mum is coming with me for the drive, and we'll stop and have lunch somewhere. She could of course have phoned her son and spent the afternoon in his garden!
Now off to tackle more adverts and stuff for the MBS fairs.
Hope you are enjoying this lovely weather, thanks for stopping by.
