Oil Pastels

So this seems everyone and I mean EVERYONE is beginning their sentences with this word, So, I'm betting English majors are going nuts. I don't quite get it myself.

I bought these oil pastels for $1.50 on a day when I had time to meander through my WAMA. We barely have any crafty items left these days in our local store. Nothing noticeable took over, craft items of note just slowly disappeared. Now and then you can find something in clearance.

There's a pic I took with Photo Booth of me holding said item. I need some serious training in this area. I'd rather be stamping...nuf said.

So what I did was to color in various colors across a watercolor paper on a diagonal. Then I spritzed with water and with a paintbrush, kinda' just painted. Next I put it in an Cuttlebug folder and let it dry. I mounted it on SU's baja breeze cs Next, I made a tiny tag from Nestabilities tags using Memento bahama blue ink and a Hero Arts sentiment stamp and added a bit of blue twine for some umph. Voila, you have a
uni-sex Birthday card.
