Several things to share with you today.....I realized that it's been a while since I shared a sunrise or a sunset picture with you. Here's one from yesterday -- it's a sunrise as viewed from my front porch.
If you're wondering what the little "hanging thingies" are underneath the electric lines, I really don't know what they're made of but the purpose is to keep the lines from hitting together when it's windy. Our development is called Brisas de Chapala (translated Breezes of Chapla) and it is aptly named -- we get very strong breezes here!
I decided to try the technique that Dawn McVey demonstrated at Make it Monday this week. The technique is using ink from stamp pads to watercolor stamped images. I used a Momento Tuxedo Black pad to stamp the images and they did not bleed at all when the watered down ink was applied. I thoroughly enjoyed this technique and will have to share it with our first Saturday cardmaking group in the near future.
Finally, did you see the tutorial at Beccy's Place this week? She has a really neat tutorial on drawing and coloring pieces of round candy. I don't have copics and didn't have a white ink pen, but I tried the technique using colored pencils. My candy is certainly not as vibrant and "shiny" as hers, but I was pleased with the result anyway! Click on the link to go to the tutorial.
