I'm so far behind....

....I can see my own rear end! At least that's how it feels at the moment. Kid problems, med roulette for Connor & for me, and the side effects....so far for Connor it's just playing with dosage (medicating a growing teenager is an interesting challenge) but the doctor prescribed a second cholesterol drug for me. Add in the side effects from THAT with the stress going around here? My arse is seriously dragging.

So, I'm ignoring the chunks of stuffed animal littering the floor (along with the remains of tissues scavenged by the dogs, sigh) and getting some crafty stuff going. It's been ages since I played along at MUSE, and ages since I did some collage stamping, so off I went! I had intended to follow the colour scheme of Therese's card as well, but it veered to a more rainbowy palette & I went with it.


Supplies: stamps all from CTMH; washi tape from WRMK and Recollections; Studio Calico arrow; Mod Podge Dimensional Magic; Neat & Tangled crystal clear sequins; distress inks in Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn

The extra splots of Dimensional Magic were to make up for an accidental splot where a sequin wasn't going to work. I rolled with it. Those sorts of things always happen at the last minute. I masked the green circle, and the washi is wrapped around  the edges of the panel.

Jessi
