Finally, after a break longer then I intended, I am back! For those of you who have been following my blog and knew about my back issues, I just wanted to give you a quick health update. After five weeks of physical therapy, cortisone meds, and some much needed rest, I have been discharged and have learned some techniques to keep me on my feet. Since I am too young to be considered for the surgery needed (yeah, finally too young for something), I am learning to adjust and live with controlling the pain and flare-ups.
One of the things is sitting for extended periods of time. To help with this, my hubby has taken some cubbies in my room and turned them into a table for standing. You will see more of my desk on Wednesday for WOYWW. How I have missed these weekly posts.
I have been working during my break, but just for very short periods of time. Some projects have taken me two weeks to complete, which has led me to be able to try new things that before I didn't have the patience to wait for things to dry. One of those things was playing with light molding paste and Julie Fei-Fan Balzers Crafter's Workshop stencils. The first thing I tried was playing on tags, as shown below.
Once I became familiar with the way the paste reacts, I took one of the tags, cut it apart, and used it on a layout. I then dripped Distress Ink down the page using a rubber brayer. I am so in love with this technique, as you will see in pages coming up in the next week or so.
Well, if you joined me again today, thanks so much for sticking by me through all of these weeks. The prayers and well wishes were really overwhelming and humbling. If you are new here, I hope you continue to visit and see what I am up to.
Hope you have a blessed week!
