Crappy endresult


Long time no post... i'll update you about that later.
Now I wanted to post an artsy disaster.

My plan was to alter the 8 drawers of a plain wooden cabinet in an artsy way, just having fun, etc. And it started out pretty good. But today I wanted to paint a drawer with Distress Crackle paints... Base was gessoed, dried, I did my thing, painted the drawer, sprinkled some glitter in the wet paint, and let it dry.

After a while I came back to check the drawer, turned it over... and this was the result

I was flabbergasted!! I just had to blow some air to let the dried paint fly around!
So tomorrow i'll try something else... cuz this won't stay.

And if I run out of my Rangers crackle paints, I won't get new ones ever again, but just get new acrylic paints and use the regular crackle medium from Folkart, Americana, Paperartsy or Alleene's.

Have a great weekend.

After a night drying time, and just some shaking it looked like this

New Memento ink colors

Today I was looking for memento markers, as I don't have any, and no dutch retailer is selling the complete set...
Then I got some new information, at least completely new to me!!

March 2012 there will be shipping 12 new ink colors (full size inkpad, dew drop inkpads and markers) from the Memento inks to all known retailers.

I really like their colors, and they go really nice with distress inks, Stampin' Up inks, and Hero Arts inks.

Are they good colors or what??

Poor Lotte

Lotte got back home yesterday, and our VET told us she needed to wear a cone for 10 days. So we got a little cat cone, and she wore it, bumping her cone to everything in de house, etc. but no real harm done. Philip (our 8 year old syberian) was hissing to her, because of that stupid cone, but still, it was ok.

This morning, still nothing weird, untill she started to wrestle with the cone, and from one moment to another, she jumps up, screaming, nails out... Her cone shifted a little because of the pressure from her "wrestling match"with it, and she got the cone stuck in her mouth... it was bleeding already. So I yelled to my husband to get some scissors, and I hold her, cut the bandaid that holds her cone, and "released" her. I held her as a baby for quite some time (usually she doesn't like that so much). And I asked my husband to call the VET, what to do now, but 1 thing was for sure, that cone was not coming on again!

15 minutes later, my husband went to a VET in the neighbourhood, to get us a "kitty bodysuit". It's way more comfy, and she has a lot of freedom in it.

This is how she looks in it.

Lotte getting neutered today...

This week, Lotte will be 6 months old, today she went to the VET to get neutered...
Tomorrow evening will be getting her back, and we're really curious how she will be like, different or just her active self... we'll see.

This picture is taken yesterday, right after her nap...
Her eyes are green, and her coat is shiny black
I will keep you posted if something new will happen...
Btw, cards are on their way to get posted, but I have troubles making good pictures at the moment.
