….good day

i am going to bed feeling pretty productive tonight…feels good. I am juggling several projects; both stuff I have to do and stuff I want to do! it always feels like there are a million things in both categories. I did some photography for the Creative Escape book, and had another look at all the projects: good stuff!  I am excited…it’s going to be here before we know it! I have been helping a friend w/ her wedding album and it’s  been fun and refreshing to work on something with/for someone else. Lots of ideas flowing. 
I have had an idea for a project bouncing around in my mind, and today I sketched it up and started playing around with papers…I am loving this combo of my ‘love notes’ collection mixed with some Pink Paislee this and this  and Fancy Pants.

I also printed off a bunch of photos from over the weekend, and need to get them into my 4th book……

I have also discovered I have a new favorite product that I find myself reaching for over and over… it’s a little unexpected, but I have been using it in lots of colors (especially this happy ‘sunshine’ yellow).

Fresh

The paint DABBER by Ranger. SO, the dabbers have been re-formulated and the paint is thinner, and works way better through the applicator/valve deal. ( I am sure there is a special name for it)… but if you have never tried this paint- it has a little valve in the top that allows the paint to come through the sponge for easy application…well in the past when I had them, the paint got all hard, and it wouldn’t come out, and the bottles were really hard, so you couldn’t really squeeze them- now, thinner paint flows great, and bottle is softer so you can squeeze it a bit through the valve, and I am hooked. I like the more intense colors and the white. Right now, I am loving the butterscotch, sunshine, watermelon and white. I will be sharing some of my favorite techniques with it later this week.

    Hmmmm
    Very interested in how to use the July 4th brushes with new words. How do you cover the existing logo to replace with another word splash? (Can’t wait for the new font….saw Rhonna’s tweet re: and I am checking daily).

    Thanks for the info about the Ranger paints being reformulated. I just add water to my old paints that get hard and mix until I get the consistency right to come through the applicator. Even those really hard paints can be rehabbed! I wonder how long until the stores have the new design in stock??? I’ll have to be on the lookout for that!
    Aloha, Kate
