I have decided to use not only stamps
that have never seen ink but also products,
that over the years, get forgotten about!
So I have sort of started to keep my promise to myself!!
This image is one on my favourites, so doesn't
come into the first category.
What does, is what I have used to colour the
gorgeous girls with.
Any one new to crafting, will have possibly not
have heard about them......
Little pots of Mica filled solid paint, that are great
for making backgrounds too.
When they came on the market, around 10ish years ago,
I had a severe addiction to them!
I also to used to Demo them,
on a Saturday in The Craft Barn
They have been copied by other companies now.
I just had to add the following pictures of an amazing
plant in my garden.
I bought it with me when we moved here.
It's called a Dierama.
It also has a few nicknames, I like the one,
'Angels Fishing Rod'.
The first photo shows it before the flowers open.
I had to make sure that Hubby didn't chop the
heads off, thinking they are dead!!
It wouldn't be the first time!!
In the next photo, you can just see dark tips on the ends
of a couple of the flower cases.
Then they begin to open!!
They are a definite 'Wow'!!
The size of each flower and the markings are beautiful.
There are 5 stems waiting to open.
They all have multiple groupings, all down each stem.
I have had the plant around 6 years and last year
it flowered for the first time.
Probably because it was in the right place!!
It had just one stem of flowers though.
Sadly, house work calls now!!
Boring but hope you have better things to do.
Thanks for visiting and your lovely messages
make me smile.
