Yesterday I received this wonderful fabric postcard from Jhodi Bennett - it is for our "silk" postcard exchange. It is a lovely sensuous and rich postcard - very textural and just gorgeous.
I also received my first order of the new Tim Holtz Grungeboard and had a quick play with it last night before we had a power blackout (which lasted a couple of hours unfortunately). Everything I have read and seen about it is right - it is incredible stuff. I am doing my other square deco page at the moment and incorporating a grungeboard flourish on it so I'll upload that either later today or tomorrow.
We have our work Christmas party tonight. It is Hawaiian themed by the pool to go with the hot summer weather that we have here but of course the temperature has suddenly dropped twenty degrees and it is very grey. I don't think there will be too much Hawaiian happening (jeans and jumpers, more likely!). Champagne will be necessary just for warmth.
This is a card I made quite a while ago - stamped, coloured and then coated in Helmar's Antique Crackle medium. Brown oil paint is rubbed into the cracks to emphasize them. I notice there are lots of people raving about the Tim Holtz Crackle Paints but I am trying to avoid buying them at this stage as I am having trouble getting to my desk - too much stuff in the way! If they are as good as they seem I am bound to end up with some though as I love the crackle look.
Ciao for now...
