Crowabout on Sunday!

What is the best thing to do, if it is so muggy out, that you just can't stand it? Right, stay inside, and play..... and that's exactly what I did today!

First I finished the inside of the cover for my Taking Flight book. Glued pp and old books pages on cardboard, painted it purple and started playing with Crowabout sheet of week 44 and I love how it turned out!

After that, I took a 5x7 piece of 90 lb watercolor paper, put gesso on it, and started using the peeling paint technique by Claudine Helmut. As it was my first time, I didn't expect it to turn out like it did, actually kind of what I wanted it to look like! So.... I took week 48 of the Crowabout sheets, and started cutting and pasting... Love the vintage look of these pictures, and I'm very satisfied with the result!

Well.......let's see what's "cooking" tomorrow!!

Wonderful pieces!
I had about two hours to complete my DT page for Friday night (7th)& all I wanted to do was create other things!! But I managed it becuase like you, it was far too hot to be outside.
Have a good week.
