AND WOW, thanks for all the remedies on my mosquito bites, yes i tried hydrocortisone and benedryl, but I really got the most relief from a cold compress which gave quick, but short lived, relief to the swelling. It looks like only about 3 or 4 of the 15 bites will scar so I am pretty thankful for that.
Let's see, what else is new? I still don't have my new rubber so you gals with special requests will have to wait a bit longer. Today I thought while I was waiting I'd do something a little different with the rubber I already own and decided to tackle a canvas.
I painted and stenciled the background and had it all nice and pretty but when I pasted down the image which was stamped on white tissue it covered much of my pretty background. i wanted to start over, but I stuck it out and carried on painting all the flowers. This probably wasn't the best image to use on tissue because it was too hard to cut close so in trying to cover my tissue, I lost much of my stencilling in the background. The overall effect is quite drab and the picture actually looks much brighter than it really is.
Oh well, live and learn...I still enjoyed the process and learned a couple things along the way so it was not time wasted.
