I have the watercolors the water crayons, the acrylics ( crappy one’s albeit…) now what do I do? I want one of the drop dead wonderful backgrounds that I see everyone create with the bright blues, yellows and reds!!! Where do I begin?
How does one learn to do backgrounds? How can I become arty?, lol!
On a brighter note, I am fighting a move to the small house in BF Egypt. There was no snow this winter subsequently, there was no work for The Hubbs. I am now looking for a fulltime job so that I can contribute to the income and preserve the status to which I have grown accustomed…namely living near the airport in a small community. For my birthday, my Bästis Kompis, Jeanette gifted me with this FABULoUS collage of none other than (my almost favorite) Swede,: Carl Von Linne’The father of Botany, Namer of plants etc…
I have hearted old uncle Kalle since I met him at Jeanettes and this is how our relationship has developed…! There is a larger size but from the hand scripted placque to the mini herbarium, Jeanette made it all! This was so unexpected and absolutely one of the few things that must be saved in the event of an emergency! I love love love it! It speaks of vintage, hand crafted, patience and the love of a best friend. This is by far the nicest thing that anyone has ever given, let alone made me. There are mini lockets with photos of insects and flowers, butterflies…literally something new to discover everytime that I look at it!
Thank goodness for vintage things, flea markets and good friends!
