Regular visitors will be not at all surprised to learn I have done nothing with either the book or the box yet.
On to the desk... a tale of oops indeed.. Artist Trading Post recently got in some Lindy's sprays. Everyone I know raves about these sprays.. I took advantage of a special offer and ordered 4 to give them a go... They came on Thursday. I opened the parcel at work and thought... oh. bubble wrap looks kind of orange. Didn't think much more of it...
You can see from the picture the mess... no wonder the bubble wrap looked orangey (gold actually) - one of the bottles had smashed in the post and the powder (you mix it yourself with warm water) was everywhere.. including my trousers.. This is how I left it and went to work..
On Saturday I salvaged what I could and tipped the remaining powder into a bottle (not a lot!) . What I thought was a bottle lid just not being screwed up tight, was a completely smashed bottle. I tipped the powder contained in the bubble wrap onto a couple of journal pages and spritzed with water..
very very gold!
I used cut and dry foam to apply black paint (Little Black Dress by Fresco) - the lumpy pages beneath made the stamping a bit wobbly, so I filled in some bits with a paintbrush.
it's not all bad news though, as ATP are sending a replacement (and a second, as compensation) which should be here soon.. So a big thumbs up for service - thanks Sue!
And, thank goodness it comes as dry powder, not ready mixed spray!!
Have a good week, and happy WOYWW!
