Computers and capsules...

I HATE computers...

For some unknown reason, I can no longer add comments to TYPEPAD blogs...

The fine folks from hughesnet have no clue what's going on. Same story from the typepad folks... not good...

So...I need to answer a Maya Road question from LAURA here.
She commented on the ATC that is posted and asked about my favorite Maya Mist colors...

LAURA...I have to be honest & say that I really do LOVE them all. BUT...if you insist on making me choose...

I can NOT live without these colors...

*CHARCOAL, I'm on my 3rd bottle......it's nice & dark, but stamped images still look great, when stamped over it. It's my #1 pick...
*The new TURQUOISE metallic...TOTALLY YUMMY!
*RED
*GREEN
*BRONZE
*SILVER...

So there you have it...6 favorites...

Here's something NEW & fun...coming soon from RANGER.

Yesterday I played a little game with...ME.

Here's the deal...

Get 4 UGLY things done from the TO-DO list...earn 30 minutes of play. Don't laugh...it worked...

So with only 30 minutes, I had to keep it simple...

I made these mini art pieces, using the new Memory Capsules from Ranger. They are made to work with the Memory Frames & Memory glass...a perfect fit.

I have tons of ideas for these guys, now that we can use the memory frames for dimensional art. Think flowers...see below...

This one uses Graphic 45 as the background paper. Just a little machine sewing...a little stamp...


It's filled with tim's new FOLIAGE pieces, from Advantus.

Here's a better look @ the capsule...I added the rhinestones on top of the capsule...it's also fun to add them inside the capsule but leave them loose...kind of like a mini shaker...




Here's the circle for the 2 inch frame. This is a grungePAPER flower made with my new stamp. The saying is also a studio 490 new release.




I think I'll go & get more checked off that list & earn more time to play and...
MAKE ART!

Hi Wendy -Thanks for answering my question about the Maya Mists! I knew that you would say that you loved all of them and I'm happy to hear that charcoal is your favorite as this was going to be my first purchase! I see on your sidebar that you are scheduled to teach a class at BSS in May. I'm really hoping to get there as this is my favorite stamp store and I love your work! laura

I'm with you on the typepad stuff. It's really annoying. One letter at a time with the idiot box that appears. so I give up.

Love these little gems. They are amazing...

what you did with the capsules is just beautiful... Love the grunge flower you put inside the one... I am wondering what the ugly things are that you had to do to get play time... So I'll guess... Do your taxes? Clean? Call someone you did not want to talk to?

Katie Watson said...

What a fantastic idea......earning playing time.....I need to do that...I do the if you walk through the kitchen you HAVE to do 5 things that need to be done....just 5 and then you can go back to the fun stuff!
Love your work as always....it's a piece of art!

Back again... the typepad issue seems to only be an issue on vista machines. I have no problem when i log into a typepad blog from my older laptop that is still running XP. :( bummer!!!
