I am so glad this week is almost over and it's Friends with Flair Friday!
PTI cardstock and pp
lace paper from stash
Unity itty bitty
Martha Stewart flocking and colored pencils
Memento and PTI inks
twine from Mark's Finest Papers
I love this itty bitty, but when I colored the bear, he didn't look very cozy, so I tried flocking for the first time.
1. It was my first time.
2. I'm sure I did not use the right glue.
3. There is glitter in the flock, and that was the only kind available.
4. The directions recommended heat setting for a more permanent set, and he's now not as cozy looking.
I also tried white flocking on the girl's polka dots, and now it looks like one of those shirts that is really really comfy, but should not be seen outside of the house.
On the plus side, there was an article in our local paper about a group of women who don't have any skills and life is really hard for them for whatever reason. Someone found a grant, and now this group makes their own paper and cards to sell, they get paid for their work and they sell their cards at a flower shop. I had a ridiculous amount of card-making supplies, so I took them a boxful so it won't just be sitting in my craft room. I found the lace paper I used above when I was sorting through my hoard. My room is less cluttered and I got to help someone. Ah, that warm and fuzzy feeling!
