Good evening good folk of Blogland. I hope you all had a wonderfully relaxing and chocco filled Easter. Back to the same old same old. I had a break from the craft and the blog while my sister was visiting. It's always nice to spend time with them from the Old Country.
It's still sunny and cold here in Norway. We had hardly any rain last month and we are on fire alert. The mountain across the fjord caught fire last weekend and we had ringside seats for the three day it took them to put it out. The flames at night were amazing but we were at a safe distance so just exciting for us. No such fun for those closer to the action. No-one hurt, just a burnt mountain. Luckily there was no wind and the ground is still so frozen that it seems only the surface vegetation was burnt and it may green up again in the summer. Nature is a wonderful thing. OK, back to the craft. Over at Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog they want weather related things.
I have been playing with tissue paper and acrylic paint.
I made a mask using Sizzix original Music Notes die and worked in some purple acrylic.
Here's what it looked like without the mask.
Then I dry brushed on some white acrylic and dribbled some dark blue down the page (sorry didn't photo that bit). Then I found a bit I liked and cut an ATC using Sizzix ATC and Corners die. You know I always though it was a bit silly to buy a die to cut rectangles but since becomming an ATC fan I decided this would save loads of time. And it gives nice rounded corners. Very professional.
