Thank you for a lovely day a great visit both to see you and to see something of Bridlington. Not to mention the more exciting parts, Fish and Chips served on a polystyrene tray with a little wooden fork. The food was great the service rather lacked the 1960's charm.
I love Seaside towns here on the east coast, Boscombe used to be like they are now. There is something magical and fun about the noisy penny arcades and shops selling buckets and spades along with Greetings from xxxxxx souvenirs.
Stopped at Hobbycraft Hull on the way home finding a couple of things to stock up on. Including a set of Gelatos.
Chrissie and I swapped gifts, as you do. Part of Chrissie's gift included some fabulous glossy card, what a great surface to try my new crayons on. Each stick was used in turn down the length of the card and then different blending techniques tried. Fingers, dry paint brush, and cloth. Each of these lifts the colour slightly but I know better than to use water on glossy card.
With all the excitement of yesterday I forgot to update the Tuesday list at Challenges for Days. One of the fortnightly challenges on Tuesdays is Try it on Tuesday. Used to be Tag Tuesday when I was on the team it changed shortly after my leaving but the two events are not related. These days Chrissie is on the team and they have just started their newest challenge; spots, dots and dashes. Finding that I needed to stay at home today having updated the list I looked for inspiration and a way to use said glossy card.
Can you use rubber stamps on it, yes inks such as Archival and Kalidacolor leave excellent marks. Stamping' up white however did not show up at all. So Stamping' up splatters (Spots of) and same set dashes in place sentiment added. Now what to do? Dots, oh look what I found some yellow self adhesive dots how perfect are they? Paper flowers and some green acetate stamped with a Clarity bird image. Presto a little mixed media art completely original and all my own.
I think it fits very well with Retro Rubber - May Colours challenge, so I'm sharing this with them as well.
