        LOL, okay, I’ll get back to you on that one…

          Not sure this is what you are going for but I have a friend who is NOT into scrapping at all, so I don’t typically discuss anything about it. Every year she and her family do a Christmas card usually a creative reenactment or interpretation of a holiday movie or song. I received mine one year and she was asking me about what I thought of it. I told her I was definitely going to scrap it. She got totally quiet as to the non scrap booker ear you can figure out she thought I was going to trash it. So now I try to watch my wording a little closer when speaking to the unenlightened.

                I have to say the butterfly on this last tag challenge. At first it wasn’t coming like I saw in my head and as I was adding color I was getting frustrated. I gessoed over it and started again with my silks this time kinda just layering the colors and wound up so happy with it.

                  Paula, that happens to be at times with the chippies. It just isn’t working like I envisioned so I just gesso over the mess and start over!

                    Butterfly!!!! OMG, Paula, you just popped this into my head:

                    I was using the sticky-back canvas that came in this kit as my background and I wanted to give it a light scrape of gesso. (I was still trying to learn mixed media.) Anyway, let’s just say that it REALLY did not turn out the way I planned, leaving me with what my high school algebra teacher called a mell of a hess. I looked around and under things to find something to hide this ouchie and came up with these humungous butterflies. And there you have it, a happy accident that (I think) actually adds to the page.

                        Got another for this thread. I pulled off the top of the Soot TH Crackle Paint over the top of my background paper so I could paint a few spots. The darn paint started dribbling on my page. So, I just went with it and did dribbles all over.

                        Here’s a sneak only as it is part of the September reveal.
