More Random Pics....

Just wanted to drop these pictures off before I go run errands:)

So.... I bought this 'word' at AC Moore's and decided to age it a little....Thinking this will go live on a shelf in The Painted Lady....


I used the crackle medium and then sanded it....Then I went back and dry brushed some gray paint over it.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
..... Casey and I were talking about different kinds of crackling methods the other day... And I was telling her that I had seen someone on HGTV take a blow torch to a painted piece of wood... and how it made the paint bubble up.... So I thought I'd try it in minis scale. I used a lighter...


It did bubble a little bit.... And I like how it aged the sign even more.... Kinda neat, huh.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
..... The kids went to Bush Gardens yesterday with their Godfather..... And brought home this:

That's my daughter on the right................ And my Boys on the left. Yes, they have dresses on?!?! Sometimes they're just down right Silly!! ((My youngest has his face painted to look like it's falling off....Bush Gardens goes all out for Halloween!!)) They had an amazing time, And I feel fortunate that there's someone in their lives that can do that for them:)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And how about a kitty pic before I go?? See Wilbur?? Rufus is laying on him in that bag on the back of the TV.... And Wilbur was sound asleep!!


OK... I will be back later with what I made yesterday....
And that special gift I got..... ((I haven't forgotten, and I'm not trying to be rude, Just Trying to find somewhere special to take pictures of it.... ))

So....
Until next Time!!

Los carteles craquelados ya los dominas. Ahora hasta los quemas. Increible el resultado.
Parece que tus hijos se lo han pasado muy bien. Estan en una edad maravillosa.
Besos Clara

I love the pic of your kids- how great! I also love the bubbled paint- I would have never thought of doing that but it is a super cool effect!
