Found this challenge a couple of weeks ago and this is the first chance I have had to participate, each week a technique from Tim's bible is chosen and all you have to do is follow the instructions, adding your own little flair, (if you can), post to your blog and link to the L3 studio blog. Only other rule is that you don't post how to do the technique.
So for my first attempt it was Perfect Distress, page 38 of afore mentioned book. Well I tried it last night and it was all looking great until I added water, just a spray honest, then it all seemed to dissolve before my very eyes, boo hoo, gave up then and went off to bed so that I could do my nightly snoring to annoy my OH. (he misses me if Im not there, LOL).
Then this morning had another go and I present to you my succesful attempt at Perfect Distressing, showing two photos 'cos one shows up the detail and the colours as they are, the other is with a flash and shows up the glimmer, and I couldn't choose between the two.
So for those that follow me on my blog, I can report a succesful attendance at my course last week and I am now licensed to lend money (form an orderly queue, LOL). I used to travel up to London every day for work, dont know how I did it , it is exhausting and dirty and my poor feet hurt so much. The course was opposite St Pauls Cathedral which was nice as I'd not worked at that end of town before, so did my touristy bit from the station, stopping to take in the sights, nothing to do with the fact I was running out of breath, I am so unfit, and this must change, it was embarrassing, having to pace myself to make the walk, whilst my tongue lolled out the side of my mouth and I had taken off everything I could to try and keep myself from overheating, being overtaken by Chelsea pensioners. Totally didnt have the sophisticated city worker look.
Anyway it is done, I have this week off and then its back to the grind until xmas. Hope all is well with everyone.
