You do have to take your time with this cardstock, it is slightly slippy, so patience is required when stamping, plus accurate positioning. It is worth it though. It also makes the brayering a doddle, as does the blending mat. It saves all that faffing with the copy paper. I have to organise myself for these sessions, the glass cutting mat has to be clean and free of all bumps, I need room to brayer, I make sure I have some wipes or a small container with some soapy water in it, kept away from the work area! I get the stamps ready, and mounted. I was going to indulge in some clarity handles, but then thought that was a bit silly as I do have a lot of acrylic blocks. I'm actually now much preferring the thin acrylic blocks, much easier to use. I also added to my adirondiac collection, taking advantage of the flexi pay, and got Meadow and Stonewashed.
The new positioning of furniture in my bedroom is forcing me to be a tidy crafter! My craft desk is now by the window, to take advantage of the light, but that means I have to make sure that the desk is closed up when it is sunny otherwise the inkpads will dry out. It is no bad thing to have to be tidy, at least now I can find things.
I may head off to Southport tomorrow, what I do each day depends on the body and the mind, both have to be up for the challenge. I've now got my new glasses, finally I can see the world clearly! They fit perfectly, and the prescription is spot on. The optician said that there was a slight difference, but not much, but things certainly seem much clearer! I really don't understand those who are reluctant to wear glasses, there have been a few on CnC who have been daft about wearing glasses, there is no shame so what is the problem?
Well I now need a cup of tea, I hope the sun is shining wherever you may be, enjoy the weekend.
