Mojo is making an appearance

So i sat for an hour yesterday whilst waiting for the boys to arrive of the school bus and made more chipboard hearts. I swear to god, i hate these hearts. I cu 50 plus large hearts and 120 small hearts. So the job tonight is to start to triple emboss them all and add some bling.

So after doing a little crafting i wanted to do some more. So i started painting my newspaper pages for my in the mix album. There is a tutorial on Donna Downeys site on how to make these pages but basically its 6 newspaper pages stuck together for each page. I just want mine plain white and crumpled at the moment.

The finished pages

More paint

Build up the paint

Pasted pages.

So once i got the painting bug and dirty hands (as i am just too lazy to use a brush, lol)i started on the painted page element of my album. I used textured Bazzil and just covered it in white whilst blending sploges of pink or green whilst the white paint was still wet. I actually laid the painted pages whilst still wet on newspaper print and when i pulled it back some print come away on the page. Produced a nice effect.

Almost there with this in the mix book now

Love what you have done with the bazill...looks really effective, esp. with the bits of newspaper still stuck to it.
I sat for what must have been two hours today, all ready to create, but ended up with nout!....Still yet to find my mojo!!
