off to see the queen!

we're headed to Chicago in a bit...

dinner with my sweetie when we arrive & a little rest before my early AM flight...

Maryland or bust!!
I'm excited to be visiting a new store...

Queen's Ink, Savage Md.
I've heard that it's FAB...

and speaking of SHOPPING...

this is hot off the press...

Ranger's PIGMENT re-inkers are now in stock...

WOW...

THANK YOU RANGER for the QUICK shipping...

here's my favorite...
and...
and ...
and
oh...
I really like stream too...
and...
for sure...
snowcap white...(to use with ALL of tim's distress ink colors)...

and don't forget Claudine's gesso...

here's a peek (it's NOT finished) of gesso over grungeboard (cut with tim's Sizzix alterations tattered florals die)...
and inked with pigment ink...

misted with the HOT OFF THE PRESS...
I used sunflower sparkle...

and stamped with coffee archival & this stamp & this one too...

I'll be showing how to create this next week...


hmmmmm...could that possibly be tim's new trimmings?
tinted with pigment ink?
I sure think so!

tim's tinted trimmings...
say that 3 times!

stay tuned...
I can't keep the queen waiting...

while I'm away...
PLEASE...

make art!

Wendy - I have a question that you have probably told us, but I can't find it - sorry. What do you use to glue the art parts together. Especially to make the spools. Thanks!!
