This is a picture of the shipping tags I painted last night. I mixed just a smidge of watercolor (from a tube) with white and mixed a bit of water to make it pastel. When I achieved a shade I liked, I used a wide brush and painted both sides. Then I hung them up to dry. I really like how they turned out and may make more. I think my favorites are the blue/green ones. They sort of took on a vintage look. Some of the tags were stamped with waterproof ink before I painted them and some after they were dry. I plan to make a tag book, maybe an ocean theme or whatever hits me at the moment.
Do you know what this is? No, it's not fabric, it's new paper! I just got it today at Scrapbooks Plus, a local scrapbooking shop. So, stay tuned to see what I create with this! Did you know you can stitch paper on your machine? I think I'm sounding like a mad scientist!
My good friend, Susan, phoned today. She may come down to visit me and we can play with fabric and paper stuff. (between shopping, that is!) She is so talented! You should see her creations. She is the one that really got me started on paper creations.
Oh, and before I end today's blog and get back to that paper...here is a sweet picture of Taylor. You can't see it, but there are birds out in the grass that she discovered and her tail is swishing and she is chirping with hopes that she will be able to catch them. Cute! Did I say that her tummy is golden, just like a real tiger in the jungle...and all of my friends and family know how much I loved Sammy the tiger.
