Today it's time for new work at Tag Tuesday and at Try it on Tuesday.
At Try it on Tuesday our theme for the next 2 weeks is 'an explosion of colour'-
I decided on a journal page for my DT piece. The background has been painted with acyrylics in red, yellow and orange, and I added extra colours with pastels. The fire-lady is a digi-stamp from Gecko Galz.
I added more colours with gel pens, felt-tips and prismalos. I hope you will have a great and colourful idea to join our challenge.
At Tag Tuesday the theme this week is Proverbs. This is my take - a bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush. Not very original, but I was tired after the fight with the little devil....(will be explained!)
I distressed a tag cut from speciality stamping paper with gradient colours in tumbled glass, Victorian velvet, wild honey and Forest Moss. The background stamp is from LaBlanche, the sentiment has been hand-written. The birds were cut with a MS punch. I mounted the tag onto some lace and a second tag made of black card.
And now to the fight with the little devil....
I have a Dirt Devil vaccuum cleaner, and some weeks back it went on strike. In the meantime I have been using my Swiffer mop to clean the floor, but wanted my little devil back. Today I took it apart. I washed all the filters and put them back in again. The motor was making the right noises, but it refused to suck up the dirt. Now, that sucks! So I took it apart again. And put it back together again. Same result. Then I said some words which I will not repeat here, and decided it was a write off. I went shopping, and whilst walking home, it occurred to me that perhaps there was something blocking one of the tubes or the hose. So, I took it all apart again, and looked through each piece with a torch. There was nothing in the first part, nor in the second. But the light did not go through the third one - something was definitely stuck there. I found a wooden cane and pushed and pushed till something fell out. And here is the culprit:
Now my Dirt Devil is working again like new, and my apartment is squeaky clean,
and I can say it sucks.....all the dirt off the floor.
I am still wondering how that bottle of Stickles got in there!
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
