I just found this post lost in between some other ones and it is ready to go!!!! It has been on “draft” status since FOREVER and I don’t know why. I had nothing to edit, not even the pictures. I guess when I wrote it – almost a month ago! – I forgot to hit “publish”! Hunpf!
Anyway, here is it, un-edited! 🙂
Have you played with masking fluid today?
I have! And It is so much fun!
Part of the fun actually, was experimenting and playing around with it because it has been YEARS since last time I use it.
I wasn’t sure how the end result would be.
Now, in case you don’t know it, masking fluid is very gluey and can ruin your brushes.
So to not risk losing my good ones I used cheapy brushes to apply the masking fluid.
I mean, CHEAP, people, VERY CHEAP:
|no pain in loosing them|
And there I was ready to start:
|Very sharp! I love it!|
I couldn’t resist and I had to share my little goodie box.
On my last trip I went a little nuts on art supplies but ironically the one I was dying to put my hands on was an online purchase that arrived right after we were back from the trip.
So there it was a lovely shipping box with that beauty inside:
Those little black boxes hadn’t change much over the years, have they? Just as I remembered from many fun teenager years ago.
Getting back “in place”
I was so excited to start using them that before I finished unwrapping them all, I had already poked one of the little squares with brush and water (far left, by the yellow):
All them in action:
On my last post I mentioned how well I behaved at the Filofax Meet-up.
I purchased ONE tinny little item – only a flyleaf!
**pet, pet, pet on my back**
Oh, but wait. It was just a trade-off!
Believe it or not, this juicy thing was RIGHT ACROSS STREET from the hotel in our Chicago trip:
Seriously, I was stoked!
I had a suitcase, a humongous purse, and people walking and bumping all around me but I still couldn’t move when I saw it.
Too dazzled for it.
(I really don’t leave in a cave if you may wonder about that again. I believe my suburban life have been suffocating the city girl in me, and I get dazzled with random things)
My reaction – as I couldn’t move – was my usual subtleness when I get excited:
“OH MY GOOOOODDNESSSSSS I CANNOT BELIIIIIEEEEEVE IT!”
And there I was pulling DH’s arm, shaking it, squeezing it as I tried to explain that “I had JUST ordered online, before leaving home, a watercolor pan set from them!!!!! OMG I CAN’T BELIIIIEVE IIIITT They are right here in front of me! I CAN”T BELIIIEEEEEVE IT”
The delivery of the watercolor set was schedule to happen right the day we were back home but still.
It would have been much more fun to actually walk into the store, touch everything possible and make a purchase right there in person!
Oh, sure thing I could go in, touch everything anyways and purchase other stuff couldn’t I? hehe
And so I did.
I went in and out of that store every single day.
And could it get any better? Yes, it could!
I soon found out that right across the BACK street, this juicy thing was awaiting me:
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!
Did I have fun browsing around?
And here it is my very first purchase at Utrecht:
|Because those items can *only* be found at Utrecht! HA!|
