Let your creative soul fly in the New Year (Theme Thursday Flying)




Playing around with paint and foil on this page. The foil has come out distressed looking as I put the foil down using a glue stick. I have tried foiling with double sided tape and it gives a clearer image but it all depends on what result you want. Shona Cole has got a good article on foiling so check out her blog. I tidied the conservatory today which is where all my and my kids craft stuff is .so it looks a lot better and am now ready to go in there rather than climb over an obstacle course...its a pity its very cold in there at the moment. Hope you all have a nice New Years Eve..at midnight there are usually loads of fireworks surrounding us and if we listen carefully we can sometimes hear the boats horns on the Mersey which is about 7 miles from where we live.

I like that look too, I guess the Stick2's make the foil more contained than the glue. Interesting. thanks for sharing and linking :)

Lorraine, both are fabulous! Using foil is fun. I had forgotten about the foil tape. It's great to do dry embossing on. I'll have to try some of your creative ideas too. Have a safe, happy, healthy, and art-filled 2010.
