quote of the day ....
sex on fire ..kings of leon
Lay where you're laying
Don't make a sound
I know they're watching
They're watching
All the commotion
The kiddie like play
Has people talking
YouYour sex is on fire
Dark of the alley
The breaking of day
Head while I'm driving
I'm driving
Soft lips are open
Them nuckles is pale
Feels like you're dying
Your dying
YouYour sex is on fire
And so
Were the words to transpire
Hot as a fever
Rattling bones
I could just taste it
Taste it
But it's not forever
But it's just tonight
Oh we're still the greatest
The greatest
The greatest
YouYour sex is on fire
YouYour sex is on fire
And so
Were the words to transpire
And youYour sex is on fire
And so
Were the words to transpire

SHALOM friends ...
i hope you have had a gorgeous day..ahhhhh its 25* much more pleasant than yesterdays atrocious wether conditions...
so i have a few things to share ,seems i jhave a little mojo flowing thur me atm....
i dont know if its the utter silence(except for my tunes)
or the clean space im scrapping in atm..but its there and i'm loving it..
so this first layout..welll its one of those ones that you lay your pics on
to then it gets put aside for literally months ,
and then it gets found and you have absolutely
no idea where this one was heading..
obvously thats why it got put aside in the first place .
come on you know exactly what im talking about? ..right? ...
well i still dont know what to do with it ,so a bit of paint.some musical pp and
a title and well thats about all thats happening
now miss ruby and others have asked about my paint technique..
and cause im a sharer..heheh i thought id run thru it here with you.hehhehh
you know ruby id love to show you in person,
maybe next holidays we could organize something anyway we go
of cause i adore brights out with your paints girlies.....
1.pick your fav colours or ones to suit your pics and off we go
2.randomly put spots of paint on your work surface
3.smear the lighter colours first ,using a pallette knife
4. blend colours to create different hues

5.finish with the darker colours...
here's a tip..dont overwork your paint ,or
you will loose the richness of the colours you have selected
this is for virginais spiritual cj ,that i hope to complete tonight **************************************
paint technique 2 your paints
2. place ordered spots of paint to your layout
3. working with the same theory ..lighter colours first
4. its good to clean your palette knife in between each colour application
i have smeared the knife down the bottom of the page to clean my knife
and add more interest and design flow
and there you go..simple and clean painting ..i tend not to use a brush at all
hope you are a little inspired to create with paint and bold colours...
they definatly create aded punch to my layouts..i hope they do the same for you !.lol
another quote from the SHE poem
i think this one was written for me.heheheh finally i have some silk paints from the local art shop that i work at ,and ive been trying to use them effectively..but to no ,inspired but the amazing Louise Nelson i had another play with them...mmm im thinking i need a spray bottle for these lil gems....
i really like the effect they give
enjoy your australia day folks....

and unallied with definite form,
can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways."
