My Be brave challenge for today was to write Laini Taylor, many of you know her from Sunday Scribblings or her blog Grow Wings or have a Laini's Ladies. One thing I have a problem is keeping focus on both writing and art. I have been wanting to write her and ask her how she manages to do both. Not only does she do Laini's ladies but she just had a book published and is writing another. i don't know why I was scared to write her but I was, but now it is done... Yippee. Its great to have that done, I have been meaning to do it for months.
I painted a few more sheets of Tyvek to do some paper beads. They actually look better than the picture shows. I found the problem with using tyvek, you can melt the paper if you are not careful. Plus you need to be careful or you will blow embossing powder everywhere. I find the Pearl x hard to use, I need to come up with a better way top add it. I used some foil on one of the beads and that turned out great.
I have a tool that is for holding things basically it a clip on a paintbrush, this made it easy to dip the beads in all the powders and to hold while I added the heat. I can see I have a lot more experimenting to do, but tomorrow is another day.
