Aim High

Hello and happy Monday to you?

It’s been a super exciting day as I give one final push to finishing  a new product, which should be in my Etsy shop soon.So watch out for little sneak peaks and a little give away.

Friday was one of those mornings when everything was against me. First GIMP wouldn’t work which was just horrendous as everything I needed to get done that day involved using it.  Luckily the issue was fixed by installing the latest version phew!!!

In a bid to accomplish at least one thing before I stopped for lunch I thought I’d print out some packaging I had recently designed. I can’t tell you how excited I was, well that was up until that moment when my printer decided to add leaky black ink blobs along the top, I could have cried………

After a spot of lunch I put the morning behind me, by refocusing and making new plans and goals for the afternoon. It turned out to be a very productive one achieving more than I thought. I even squeezed in my run so I was happy again lol

Fast forward to 6.30pm and it was time for Messy Fun Friday, it was the best end to my day!

Every week has been challenging but this weeks texture challenge was taking scary to a new level. It was by far the best ‘Messy Fun Friday’ Jaine and I have had to date.

I created the background using tissue paper, gesso, textured paste, a stencil and Color Burst.Watching the Color Burst explode onto the textured page was amazing to see, I really need to do that again and soon!

The silhouette was cut out from a Vogue magazine. The image you see is the reverse side. A strip of washi tape was added to the bottom to ground the image. To complete I coloured some blue stickers I had using a black Promarker pen then placed them to the left of the silhouette.

I’ll be back soon sharing my design team project for the Sarah Hurley 365 Inspiration page.

      1. It has dried out for the most part but I am having a problem with the finished pages sticking. Some of them I had to rip a bit to get them apart which kind of was a bummer. I am hoping with a little more drying the sticking issue will stop. The pages hadn’t stuck before the deluge.
