Holla holla! One of the characters in the piece I’m working on uses a ton of slang that so many young folks use today. So I’m keeping my ears peeled and watching a lot of TV to which I would never normally expose myself. Did you know that there are folks who glue diamond “grilles” to their teeth? That is “cra cra” lol! Hubbie and I are getting “hella” entertainment incorporating these terms into our vocabulary – in my head, it works. But in our lives, no matter what we do, none of it will roll off our tongues in any way that’s even nearly convincing. It sure is funny, though. Anyway, that’s what’s going on in the studio – writing non-stop, periodically gazing yearningly at my craft table. My brain gets fried by the end of the day, but it’s all good. When the writing juices flow and I come up with something I like, I feel absolutely fabulous!
In the craft department, I have a few cards to share at Hampton Art. I would say “a pair,” except for the fact that they are very different in style. I hope you’ll hop over there to check them out and leave me a bit o’ comment lovin’!
One card uses a new technique I picked up from Lindy’s Stamp Gang, using their mica powders with stamping. Here’s a sneak.
I definitely want to play more with that technique. The second card has a very formal look to it, although I’ve used the tearing technique for a variety of projects that are completely informal. Another sneak peek.
Loving the tearing, and with the “dry crafting” that I’ve been doing lately, my fingers are thanking me for not staining them constantly. I’m enjoying the challenge of exercising my crafty muscles and working in new ways.
Hope you’ll stop by Hampton Art today if you have a chance.
