Free on Friday 18 August 2017

Welcome to Free on Friday.  I have finally got my get up an go, as far as crafting goes, back.  I have looked at several YouTubes for Pouring Paint pictures and decided to give it a go.  The idea is to make "cells" and apparently there are several methods - one of which involves a blow torch!!
One method adds glue to a paint and water mix, another adds WD 40 and yet another adds glycerin.  I tried the glue one first and was totally unsuccessful at at getting any cells to develop.  I did, however, enjoy myself and make a whole stack of backgrounds for index cards, tags and a couple of A4 backgrounds.  I started with 2 large cereal packets, opened out and cut into A4 sizes and tag sizes.  I also had several index cards for the paint that was bound to drip.   Now I am not sure if I got the recipe right, but as I said no cells so the next experiment will be the WD 40 mix.  I hope to show you some pictures tomorrow.

 I have made a colouring card for you today and I have used part of a verse from a hymn written by Brian A Wren.  I hope you like it.

Take care x

Welcome to Free on Friday.  I have another colouring page or tip-in for your Bible.    I do hope you like this one.  The crown was part on an image which was free from Inkydeals who do a variety of freebies, graphics, photoshop actions etc.  I modified it slightly to make it more suitable for colouring in.


Do let me know what you think.  Take care x

Welcome to Free on Friday, now I don't want to upset anybody, but with July nearly over it's a fast ride to Christmas!  I know a lot of you folks don't want to think about Christmas just yet - but it's coming :)

I have started a new project, colouring-in prayer cards, Bible tip ins, how ever you want to use them.  I have made my first one and this is where I would like your help - please!

Now this one is 3 and a half inches by 5 inches, I decided it might be too small to colour in if it was 3 x 4.   So I would like to know if this size is a good size and also if anyone has a problem with the ink smudging from inkjet printers.  I was thinking I could make the black, grey, so it wouldn't cause so much of a problem.  Please let me know what you think.  Have a great weekend - I am hoping the rain will stop :)

It's a breezy day today.  Not too bad for temperature - I haven't put a jumper on yet, but then I am indoors :)   A few days ago I ordered a stainless steel rubbish bin for my in-laws off Tesco Direct.  Today I got a phone call asking me "Did I order a bed?"  apparently instead of a bin a bed was delivered!  Taking the order number off the receipt they had been given, it tallied with my order.  The delivery driver had given the right receipt, just the wrong parcel!  A few phone calls later and it was all sorted and hopefully as I post this they will have their new bin :)

Today I got kinda sidetracked - which is par for the course!  I have a folder on my computer called "To Be Sorted",  I came across a picture and the window in the picture caught my eye.


This is the window and this is what I did --

 This one will fit on an A6 card.  The ones below are half A5 size which is 74 x 210 mm or 2.9 x 8.3 inches.  I actually thought DL size was half A5, but when I googled it, it wasn't.


I made two cards with this design which you are welcome to.





For the rest of the vintage picture you will have to wait a little while :)  Hope the sun is shining where you are - but not too hot x

Hello and a warm welcome to another Free on Friday.  I am posting rather late today, having just watched Phantom of the Opera.  I just love that film and the music.   I did see a live production of it which was amazing.  Do you have a favourite musical/show?

Today I have a Japanese morning glory image.  This came from a site called Vintage Printable.  I spent some time making the image more crisp, then I did a coloured version too.



 Hope you like them, see you soon x
