It was so beautiful out today I hated to be inside. I did sit out on the back porch a bit and listen to the birds and watch the hummers flying around. But I couldn't stay out long as I was finishing up the last minute details on my Technique Lover's Class that is coming up.
Here's a little guy or gal resting up, as you can see my feeders were almost empty, I had made more syrup this morning, and it was cooling in the kitchen. So by tonight they were buzzing all around, and I took some video but it seems dark when I look at it on the computer, so I don't know if it is worth uploading, I will see if I can't get them during the day, but it seems like about 6pm they come out full force.
Toby was enjoying the sunshine too. The little bugger hates to get his picture taken. If you hold him he is fine, but if he is sitting anywhere, and I get the camera out, he high-tails it into the other room, in fact one day he went off to the guest room and got under the dust ruffle thing and had his head sticking out…crazy dog. But I used my zoom and got him while I sat on the patio…how about that long mustache he is sporting?
I have a technique lover's class coming up, and one of the techniques they are doing is Beautiful Batik and this is the card.
Added since original post: Since the class is over here is the video tutorial on the technique. Just click here.
Paper: Regal Rose, Shimmery White, Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal
Ink: Jetblack Stazon, Versamark, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal
Misc: White Taffeta, Chocolate Epoxy Brads, 1" circle punch, scallop oval punch, large oval punch, perfect polka dots impressions folder, Floral Fusion sizzlit die
I loved doing Batik in art class in school, but that used wax and material and dies, and so this maybe should be called Faux Batik, but Beautiful Batik sounds better.
I'll show you the other two projects in a day or so. I do have a few seats available in the Technique Lover's Class if you are interested.
Have a very Happy Easter and thanks for stopping in!
