Timeless Tuesday...around the house


Well it's Timeless Tuesday Weds. for me but oh well at least I'm back to posting. This calls for something around the house so I said to myself.,..how about bleach??? Haven't done that in a long time so that's the way I went. Stamped an image from the beautiful pear set and went to work. I embossed the image in gold and then with a clean Q-tip ( not one used in my ears) I used some Clorox bleach and gently dabbed the kraft colored c.s. so as to remove the color. I then went back with another clean Q-tip and chalk colored my image but not too much. Wanted it to be rather mono toned with the greenish papers I used. Simple and easy to do. Cut out 2 dies from Spellbinders and used some pop-up dots and I'm fini.
Hope you are all off to a good week and enjoy the soon to be weekend. Happy times to you all.

Glad to see you back, Pat. I've been enjoying your blog for a long time but this is the first time I've left a comment. Did you know we both have daughters who work for Flourishes? I'm proud to say I'm Kathy Jones' Mum (from Australia). BTW, great idea with the bleach!

Hey, Pat, what fun to read of successful bleaching and repurposing something from around the house into beauty with a message. Green, green, the pear is ripening still (for a musical take off!). That reminds me of delicious pears we found in IGA nearly ripe needing only a couple of days in a brown bag. Yummy salad. Blessings on you and yours. mt23stamperatyahoodotcom
Keep Looking UP!
