I cut up the first set of bookmarks yesterday afternoon. They're about 2" X 5".
I really liked these!
Bold with gold--hehe!
I was restless and aching all over. One of those days where I was up and down a lot because I couldn't get comfortable anywhere in any position anyways--so I started on another set of saran wrap bookmarks.
This time I used the Cheap Joe's watercolor tiny palette. Felt like Jackson Pollack there for a few minutes--hehe! Then got out the plastic wrap and crumbled and squished. :)
The second I am out of the chair Miss Jumping Bean was up there with her nose and front paw on the table. I gave her a sharp "no!" and she quickly went to the other arm of the chair...
...with her--"who me? I'm not the least bit interested in what's on that boring, boring table. Really. You can just forget I am here because I have absolutely noooo interest in licking paint water or pawing on the crinkly saran wrap"--act.
She didn't fool me for a second. :):)
Since I have fans going all over the apartment to try and move the AC air from next to the living room windows (aims at the porch door-duh?) into the apartment, around the hallway, and into the bedroom...I decided to set the wet WC block in front of a fan. Several hours later...TaDa!!
I didn't add gold ink this time. (No shaking jars for me--hehe!) My plan was to use LuminArts Shimmering Mists for a more subtle, overall shine this time. So I got out our fancy box for spraying...
...and misted with Solar Gold, Pewter, Bronze Metallic, and Golden Bamboo...
...and left it to dry overnight. I'll show you tomorrow.
The office folks never came yesterday, either, for the apartment check. ?? Oh well. I've been here for so many years now that they probably do know it looks about the same every time they come--hehe! Or I was just plain overlooked? Doesn't matter to me.
I was glad to see that the next three DVDs of True Blood were due yesterday...and they arrived! (I only have the very last DVD left to watch after that one comes--there are five of them.) I had a True Blood marathon after the mail came in the afternoon--watched two of the three DVDs--five episodes. I have to say that I am just not sure about the new creature with the bull's head and toxic claws. Don't want to give anything away about that--but not my favorite storyline--at all. I hope it ends soon.
I have been so sore and not sleeping well that I decided to take a pain pill last night. First one since I quit the beginning of May. I slept nine hours last night and only woke up once! Nice to have them work again because I was in desperate need of sleep. I had gotten almost immune to them, as you know, so I wasn't sure they'd work yet or not. Nice to know. Now I can use them here and there again when I really need them. :)
OMGosh! Karma spotted a huge moth on the porch screen. Guess I need to hobble over there and let my pseudo-hunter cat out--hehe!
