General update

Hi all,

Things have been a bit busy this last week, hence the lack of posts. I will start with the usual:

Weekly Name and Shame: -100g

not brilliant, but things will look up this week, I know.

in terms of other stuff, I was very busy last weekend helping Monika unpack at the new store. She opened at new premises in Spotswood on Tuesday the 12th. Very exciting for her, so please drop by and visit - you can actually see all the stock now - it is great!

My sister dropped by to see me on her way through to a hiking trip in NZ.... I have also been very busy at work, the boss was away in India, so I copped a bit of an admin burden this week.

I managed to do another baby card yesterday - which is rather sweet. Used some stampin up stamps that were still virgins to do it:

I should give a shout out to Lou and Martin and say congratulations on the birth of Holly Matilda!

I have also managed to complete my prototype for the latest ArtyOz Kit Swap, i will try to get them completed during the week and hand them on next Sunday, so I will be able to post output later on...

With any luck my output level will be on the rise again this week, so stay tuned!

DeMengie Fever!

Well, this is this is my creation from yesterday's transparency class with Michael DeMeng :

Here is the detail of the transparency (behind the optical lens at the bottom of the shot):

The class was just great, and I am really pleased with how my piece turned out. I was lucky in that my composition just fell into place on the day.

I picked up some great tips from Michael - I was particularly interested in the patina effects created with pain washes. Very good stuff. His alteration techniques and use of transparencies was really clever, and who knew that Liquid Nails would become an essential art supply!

I didn't get photos of everyone else's work because the battery in my camera died, but all the work created on the day was just fantastic, and it was great to catch up with so many ladies I haven't seen for a while.

I think that I will be doing more "ASS-emblage" in the future.

Weekly name and shame

Weekly Name and Shame: +600g

well, disappointed is putting it mildly - I am back up to where I started! My JC consultant isn't sure what happened, but I will continue to faithfully keep my journal and if I haven't lost next week she will send it off to the dietician.

AND I did exercise this week too!

bah humbug.
