The challenge lasts for two weeks so we hope you will join the choir(or band)!
I have made a card for someone who loves listening to music!
I used Art Basics transparent 3D gloss Gel through a music stencil..
..and stamped some music notes over the Kraft card,
I stamped an Indigoblu music stamp before giving it a light coating of Gesso and then used the stencil to add texture paste (I used Ranger's Texture paste - Opaque Matte - which so far, is one of the easiest I have ever used) I added a little gold paint added with my finger once it had dried..
The phonograph, record and notes were free with a magazine.
Today is also the day when I join Bluebeard and Elizabeth at The Altered Booklover with my drink.
As I mentioned in my post title I have been taking it easy since a really horrendous Board meeting here at our retirement apartments. I think I have mentioned before that as owners of our flats we have a board of directors of which I am one….at the moment…after Thursday's meeting I am not sure how long I want to be!
Hubby and I are also on the gardening Committee and the meeting for that was in the afternoon…a much more relaxed affair but I and another board member were still reeling from the morning's stresses!
I was pleased to get away on Friday morning and hubby suggested we take the long route via Skipton - a lovely Market town in the Yorkshire Dales.
|We plan to take this route again and have a canal trip - we only realised that we could when we had to head back to the car park!|
|This little shopping mall was so peaceful|
|We had a little look around the market|
Of course we picked up a few goodies to have for our tea!
By this time I was getting closer to the caravan feeling more relaxed. We have had a lovely time - not doing much at all!!
I hope you have enjoyed seeing Skipton and my half drunk coffee and that you will join in over at Elizabeth's blog.
Hoping to see you at TIOT too - do waltz on over and have a look at the fabulous examples from the Design Team!
Thanks for looking, Chris
Edit - We are home now...for a while!!
