June Day 17: Tell us how to do something, can be a craft technique
that's as old as the hill but your take on it
Craft something that has the colour red in it
The only thing I can think of for this prompt is to share how I age paper.
I usually stamp or print my image first on whatever paper I'm using, then
dip a tea bag in some very warm water, squeeze gently so's it doesn't drip
too much then just dab it over my image....the more you dab the darker
the paper. Then when you've got the colour you want, screw the paper up,
then open up and let it dry! Here's a card I blogged a few months back,
using a printed, tea bagged script from Romeo & Juliet!
For the colour red, here's a pic of a cross stitch project I started
last Winter.....I finally finished it last night!
All the little red blobs round the top, in the pudding and the
holly berries are tiny seed beads.....I think I dropped more
than I used! Not sure what to do with this, was thinking
maybe the front of a recipe book but then I'd probably
drop Christmas pud mixture all over it! Any suggestions?
Rightio, off for some stew & dumplings.....be round to visit
you all later!
