Using Alcohol Inks...

for the TMTA theme this week. I printed a pattern onto acetate, added alcohol inks to the backgroundm then created a crumpled foil background and applied the acetate on top. Then I stamped some butterfly wings, added alcohol inks to these and adhered to the surface, using a red gem for the centre of each.

It was definitely back to work with a bang today! That first sounding of the alarm at silly O'clock really shakes your bones! But up I got and got to work on time, after forgetting how bad the traffic can be if you hit it at the wrong time, only to find that I could not access any of the school work I had done over the break because I had filled the server disk and it would not synchronize with the school system! So I unplugged it from that and tried to access the files to move them to another area so I could use them, only for the computer to tell me that I could not access them unless I was synchronized with the system!!!!! Argghhhhh........

I eventually managed to move other files around and access what I needed in time for my lessons, then we had a fire drill to boot! What a welcome back, here's to the rest of the week.....
