Hello Fellow Doodlers!


It's 'road trip' time for me! Taking a few days to attend hubby's family reunion in Illinois this weekend, and spending time there to just relax for a few extra days! Then, I'll be back and ready to get some projects off the drawing board and finished! Enjoy the weekend and have some last minute fun too! August always seems to be the month, at least the first few weeks of it, when we hurry-up and get all we can out of summer before school starts and Fall begins!

** Paper Wishes **

GELATOS COLORS -Little chapstick like things!

Faber-Castell Mix & Match Color Gelatos are luscious acid-free pigment sticks that glide on creamy vibrant color and blend beautifully with or without water. They will work well on light or dark papers, smooth or textured surfaces, even flocked papers and canvas, and with a variety of stamping techniques from traditional direct to stamp to reverse stamping. You'll find more uses as you experiment with them. Pigments come in a twist up tube. Gift Set- 22 vibrant colors and 6 metallic Gelatos sticks, a water brush, 4 blending tools and an illustrated technique booklet. Techniques found in booklet include stamping, misting, blending, layering, mixed media and painting.

Bird's site shares a card with a comical scene of a menacing shark who's about to get hooked, and of course she shares the individual elements as freebies; relevant cut files are for the Silhouette machine, and digi versions, if you'd like to color and cut out by hand, are also included.
