Okay, so here is the run down from yesterday of what I did in-between working on my class newsletter(Which I MUST finish today!!!)
I painted the lantern. Hubby would not let me paint it black, so I grunged it (there are some black splotches... heheee). I used Gesso to build up areas of "gunk"- a always like that look on prim furniture. It's like it got a little grimy and someone painted over. The gesso soaked up the brown wash more that the rest of the wood- awesome!!! Then, I mushed and rubbed in some cinnamon and Modgepodge to further darken the grimy areas. The picture doesn't really show the grime as well. It is a darker brown.
Next, I started my baggies and finished my dolls. I need to finish the bags and stain everything. I don't know why the one doll has a big head. Maybe it is vanity...
My eBay packages are ready to be mailed. I fit the large order carefully into two packages. Pray that they all arrive safely. One lady ordered fabric about a week ago. I mailed it within the 3 day processing time that I show on my listing. She also got free shipping that was parcel post. She has not gotten it yet and seems a bit discontent. However, it is WELL within the range of the delivery time frame- 8/21-8/29. Please pray that it arrives soon. I am so afraid of poor feedback and letting people down. :(
I grunged a can and ball jar. Now, I did mostly cinnamon. I did put quite a bit of modgepodge, but I like the "dusty" look. However, I don't want cinnamon sprinkling everywhere. It seems that most of it is staying on. Does anyone have a recommendation as to how to keep it on there better without losing the dusty look?
Bailey was good support through out the day in getting things done. But, at 12 am, she gave in to comfyness and sleep. I had to carry her to bed later... My little baby!
Blessings to you all!
