Another Distress Marker Project
I will say that I really liked the combination of Distress markers with that super-smooth paper. The background patterned piece is one I made, thanks to a new technique I learned from my mother (thank you!). The card base is my favourite - tsumugi paper. Beautiful stuff! I love the colours and the texture.
Well, I am off to steal a few minutes in my stamp room before I get going on the weekend chores. I might even turn on the hockey game to listen to the playoffs while I stamp. We'll see. Hubby's playing his guitar and I'm enjoying listening to that.
Ok - Blogger has upgraded and won't let me attach pictures without using the new version. But I can't see where to add labels. I hate these "improvements" that make it hard to do things that used to be easy. ---later-- I found the labels under an icon that looks greyed out, but turns out to be active with the right incantation. I don't understand this move to icons everywhere. This a blog. That implies a certain level of literacy right there. Why use impenetrable icons when a label would work? Speaking of literacy, or lack thereof, I was walking downtown down a road I hadn't used before on my way back from a meeting. I went past an electric company installation and they had a big sign on the fence (big, imposing, serious fence) that said, "NO PARKING. VILATORS WILL BE TICKETED AND TOWED." This sign was repeated again, about 10 feet away. On one sign, someone had turned the I in vilator into a flower, and on the other sign, some punctilious vigilante had added an O. Here's a picture of the sign - it must be at a different location since it's on a brick wall, unlike the ones I saw. http://boerishbwoy.blogspot.ca/2010/06/title-warning-to-all-vilators-location.html#links I wonder if one could appeal one's ticket on the grounds that they are not a vilator, and are therefore exempt from this exhortation. I'd hope so, but I wouldn't want to be the one to try it out.
