With temperatures a bit cooler (low to mid 90sF/33-34C rather than triple digits of 106ishF/39-40C), I took a stay-cation day and visited The Kansas African American Museum. I will show those photos later in the week.
I knew I should make at least one more spread in my Windows and Doors section of my altered book, too.
Here are the supplies I used clockwise for back left:
Cardboard tube (didn't use)
Punchinella (sequin waste, also didn't use)
Old gift card
Sea sponge (didn't use)
Handmade rubber stamps
12 X 12 inch white scrapbook paper (5 sheets)
I began by globing (yes, that's a word in my book) craft paint on one page. The idea was to apply paint blobs in two colors in rough triangles.
However, I globed so much paint on the first page, I ended up with three sheets in the same two colors before I had used all the paint. I laid them on my rather dirty anti-static mats on the floor and proceeded to make the final two in very similar colors. Of course, I had to wait until they dried, then I glued them to four pages: the back of page 1, the front of page 2, the back of page 3, and the front of page 4.
When dry, I cut a window from pages 2 and 3 using (don't fall over in a dead faint) a craft knife, self-healing mat, and ruler. You are looking at the back of page 2 above. When both windows had been cut, I inserted a piece of plastic and glued pages 2 and 3 together.
While the pages were once again drying, I sewed a slot in a piece of translucent fabric that I planned to turn into a curtain that can be pulled back.
However, as you can see, this is as far as I got. Look for this spread to hopefully be finished by sometime tomorrow. I didn't realize it was going to take so long for everything to dry this week.
I also hope to finish this quiltlet sometime this week. It's not going as well, or as quickly as I had hoped! You can see I have a long way to go.
I hope this PREview will have you coming back for more this week. I sincerely hope your week is stress-free and art filled. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to add your zipper lesson at last week's Linky. Now I'm off to bed because I have been up all night.
