Still raining... can someone put the plug back in?

Back to crafting today.  Still pouring with rain this morning.  Took advantage of a lull to pop out to see a friend.

I made the background for my piece yesterday,  put several coats of gesso on,  then the dylusions, and spattered some water over it.

This was based on the canvas I started at the weekend but didn't quite finish.  So once this was dry it was time to start the fun bit!

On the original canvas I'd stamped some rings using the base of a mug, then stamped smaller rings round them.  Wasn't sure why, just liked the idea.  That was as far as I got on Sunday, so today with all my materials I was able to really go mad.  This had to reflect our weekend, so since I'd seen loads of orbs it felt apt to dedicate this to them.  So using the slice I cut some letters,  and the Bug for the corners.   A Kanban acetate butterfly got the glitter job, and I dotted lots of glue around and covered them with lots of different coloured glitters,  there are also lots of stars sprinkled around.  The Angel is actually a brooch with a lot of pinflair underneath.   The flowers just finished it off, I already had them,  been making a few flowers of late.  The letters and corners got a good coating of UTEE.

Also have a couple of new toys to play with, a new Kaiser stamp and some dies, which I want to use for something tomorrow.   Sainsbury's rang to confirm the delivery date, 4th October,  which I am very angry about, sadly I wasn't in to take the call,  but I am going to call them tomorrow, I just don't think that is good enough, plus on my order they say the goods have been dispatched!   What are they using for transport: a steam roller?

Hi Cassidy, your canvas has turned out beautiful and I like the rings.

Sorry to hear about the delay in delivery of your desk ... I just know I'd be seething with anticipation too - oh, the anguish of waiting.

Really pretty Cass - almost ethereal in a way isn't it? Love the colours.
