More with the Primary Elements

Good morning, peeps and happy Saturday!

Well, my flabber has been absolutely gasted this morning because I went to visit the lovely Sheena's blog this morning and lo and behold there were piccies of some of my DT items.  Thank you Sheena and Goph, I am truly flattered!

So, at the risk of being boring I shall repeat two of them here - I showed you the mirror yesterday:

I confess to having nicked Goph's photo because it's soooo much better than any that I took in a hurry because I had to make the post.  I hope he'll forgive me.  This box is a perfect illustration of the wonderful, intense colours that can be obtained with this medium  in this instance they were blended with Crystal Lacquer, as they were for painting the mirror I showed you yesterday.  The box has first been painted with ordinary emulsion paint.

....and now for a card.....

This is another 'cleaning up the tile' background (see yesterday's post) and this time I mixed the mica powder with liquid gum arabic to paint the flowers from the Always Floral and Flower Power stamp sets.  They were then cut out and secured to the background with brads.

Sheena's shows are on Monday 18 February on Create and Craft TV - the first is the Craft Clinic show at 11.00 a.m. for two hours and then at 3.00 p.m. and 6.00 p.m. she'll be doing some Paint Fusioning.

Well that's it for today, peeps.  Thank you for looking and enjoy your weekend.
