I've been a rubbish blogger lately. I went away for a week at the beginning of the month and I am still paying for it now. I've been spending most days in bed and the days I haven't been in bed, I have been sitting and staring at the wall like a mannequin. I'm completely exhausted and also I am wondering if I really was trampled on by a horse last night. Is it possible for one to sleep through that sort of thing? Very achey indeed. But I've been wanting to do SOMETHING creative for a while. So, I got out my unused birthday toy (a mini quilting iron) and began melting! I melted beeswax onto an older painting I did (pics at the end of this post) which gave it the finishing touch I had wanted. Also, I did an art journal page using melted crayons. Very fun indeed. Have you ever melted crayons before?
I LOVE the smooth finish of the crayon once it had solidified (which doesn't take long). So tactile. So stroke-able. Yes, that's right: strokeable.
Next weekend, Donna Downey will be doing some classes here in the UK. I was planning to go. It was looking as though we would have the money and I could have met (and been taught by) one of my scrapbooking/crafting gurus. Alas no. The money we thought we would have, we do not have. Not even slightly. How many times does DONNA DOWNEY come and do classes in the UK?? (It's a rhetorical question, but you may not know the answer, which is NOT OFTEN!). Oh Donna. One day... Maybe I'll convince Mr Pippa to take me to her event in South Carolina next year :o)
Anyway! I will post again soon. I will. Promise.
