Another page in the book of life~

I hope everyone's weekend went well.  I went to a couple of garage sales and an estate sale and found some
more goodies.  I also finished my canvas I was working on, got the stain out of the vintage dress I wanted to list on etsy, and listed said dress on etsy.  That was my first new posting in months.  I have got to get back in the habit - wait I never made it a habit- that's why I have only had 5 sales. Hmmmm.  I am debating on whether I want to try to sell my canvas or keep it.  I like it because it is a reminder to follow my happiness, but on the other hand, I don't have a place to hang it.  I feel kinda weird trying to sell it, since it was my first and I don't think that it is up to par with the other paintings out there.  But then again that is probably just my fear talking.

Gluing those stars on there was a bitch.  I used gel medium to glue papers on because that is what all the pros use.  Well, I guess I am not a pro because I could not get it to work for me.  The angel/fairy did not want to stay down.  The gel medium would dry so fast.  I think I will stick to mod podge for now on.

I have more goals for this week, some the same, some different~

  1. List another item on etsy
  2. Gussy up Facebok fan page
  3. Work on website
  4. Make a signature for blog posts
  5. Work on tutorials.
  6. Catch up on Kelly Rae's class

    beautiful. love her wings.

    gel medium dries very quickly for me in the summer. i just apply it thicker. liquitex's matte medium seems to dry more slowly for some reason.
