I finally got back down to the art area to make my Collage Play With Crowabout collage. Nancy gave us some great images to use this week!
I bought some watercolor paints I thought I would experiment with last night. It didn't go so well! I don't really know how to use them yet. I also bought two new paint pens. A bright yellow and a red one. I bought these colors because in normal markers, those colors never seem to be opaque enough, especially in collaging or journaling, over a painted surface. I have some opaque markers by Marvy (I believe) that I tend to use most of the time in my collages, for that reason. Anyhow, I got all ready to use the two new ones I bought and you know how you have to shake them and then open them and press down until the paint comes?? Well with the yellow one, it never did come!!! The point is now flat, so now it would'nt matter if the paint did come out!! I was so mad! The red one worked though! :D
Why does everything break or screw up at the same time? Yesterday I woke up, turned on the computer and the keyboard was dead. I got the flashlight, layed under the table amid the dust and ladybugs and my cat Pearl swirling around my face and swatting me in the face with her tail, and unplugged it, plugged it back in, rebooted....still didn't work. Called hubby and told him I was on my way to buy a new one. You would have thought I was telling him that I was going to buy a new computer or a new car even. He said he thought he could get one from work or knew someone who had some. I said I didn't care where he got it, just get it. So yesterday I layed low since I couldn't type anything! I did find an online keyboard I could henpick with my mouse! Can yall imagine ME trying to type like that??? Oh well, no worries now, I got up this morning, turned on the computer, it's working again!!! I told him to get the new one anyhow, because yall know if I told him nevermind it would quit working the next day! See yall later! x0x0x
