A little daydreaming...

Here's a little piece (it's 4" square) that I made this week. I finally got out my foils and used them. They are really easy to use, I don't know why they make me so nervous! The base of this piece is a paper towel which was used as a pressing cloth to iron crayon wax off a piece I did a few months ago. I painted over it, and I like how the wax resisted the paint. I even did some hand stitching (Clevelandgirlie will be proud of me!). But ... it's hiding a surprise, and I'm not telling what it is for a few more weeks, so you'll just have to wait. ;7) ~Michelle

You do SUCH beautiful work, no matter what the medium.

I was just thinking of you today when I was working on my Joggles class using UTEE. Did you tell me once you used that with the bottlecaps?

btw....I'm very nervous around foil too, for some reason.

Very colorful, creating is so much fun, because you never fail. All creations are a chance to learn and each "failure" brings one closer to success.

You go girl! I tried foil once and was foiled again! It didn't turn out and I have gone back to try it again. My glue is all dried up now. lol
