I got my hubby and Derick tickets to see Dierks Bentley tonight. Isabel was dog sitting and Baylee was hanging out with a friend, so I crafted up a storm. First up was trying my alcohol inks that I got from Blick’s Art Materials…I forgot to get a dropper for the alcohol…so my first one was a little of a dud…but just wait until it dries.
After I worked with the alcohol ink and was waiting for everything to dry, I worked on a new wall hanging. While I was on the back porch working, there was a raccoon stealing seed from my bird feeder! The racoon climbed the tree to get to the seeds. I have never saw such a thing. Took a photo with my phone, but it is not share worthy! Just trust me that it was a great sight. I need to keep my camera with zoom on me at all times while on the porch.
Finished the wall hanging and headed upstairs to put together a Fourth of July outfit for my nieces. Found these shorts for $2 and this white blank top for $1.50 at my local Bargain Hunt. If you have one nearby you MUST check it out! It will change your world. There are some deep deep discounts. Most of my yarn for my wall hangings has come from there at $2 a ball. Had some vinyl left over from another project and threw together this cute little design. Have one cut for my other neice too, but need a onesie the right size! I’ll add her onesie later on!
So I wasn’t happy with my alcohol ink art, so what else to do with a so-so painting…add a cutesy saying in vinyl! So designed this and added it on. Used reverse weeding my first time on the smaller letters (after I ruined one of them, because the thin letters kept escaping me) and that technique blew my mind! I might do a tutorial on that later if there is any interest. It is super simple
