It's ACT Time!







































Finally!!!!! Wow who would have thought one little card could give someone soooo much trouble! LOL. It all started a few weeks ago when Cat from STV asked that we use a piece of jewelry when making our ACT this week. Here is a link to that post back on March 14.
I knew just the piece I wanted to use and the stamp, for reason I just could not get the composition right. I worked it and worked it. Went for another piece of jewelry and tried to work that with no luck. Determined I went back to the first one. Which you can now see in my first picture. In the mean time Cat had moved on to Acrylic painting on canvas and using a feather(picture 2) my feather came from my bird Sweety. I used a needle and thread to sew through the shaft and added the beads on the thread and tied a knot. The next time I saw her blog she used this air drying clay on a card and of course I just had to get some of that, sure enough she used some on her next ACT making a leaf. On mine(picture 3) I used GKD strawberries from Spring Mix STV kit. On that same post, she showed her tray Here She must have stuck one in when I wasn't looking so I had to keep up ya know! That would be picture 4. Then I took a shot of them in a tray! I can't wait to see what Cat comes up with this week. Check out here blog and join us. This will not be there final resting spot though, I'm just filling the trays as I complete the cards and when I get enough to fill a tray I will decide who's tray it will be! I really hope to get some more boy ones done, only one so far and I need to make three boy trays. LOL
I'm so happy to be creating again. These past two weeks I've been working on financial stuff for the coming months. That budget stuff really exhaust me. I have also noticed when I'm working with the budget, projections and forecasting, it is very hard to get the creative part of my mind going.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It was gloomy here.
