Things don’t always go as planned…and when it is play…that is more than okay! The plan was recycle tissue paper that had been gift wrap and old dried out rub ons in my art journal for this week’s Let’s Play video and link party + giveaway.
Now, those rub ons really surprised me. When I found them in my stash, I was quite surprised because they don’t look like anything I would ever buy. But apparently I did about 10 years ago because they were totally dried out and no longer tacky on the back. Perfect for a Let’s Play!
But…this didn’t go as expected. But that didn’t matter even a little bit because any “mistake” is just an Oops, an Outstanding Opportunity Presenting Suddenly. And gel medium took care of that Oops!
Let’s Play isn’t just about my play, it’s about yours too! Be sure to link up what you’re playing with for this week’s link party and get entered to win a $50 Dick Blick gift certificate too! Winner will be announced next week!
In the video, you’ll see what happens when I had a blast going a little overboard with the orange Pico Embellisher and you’ll find out what happened to that recycled tissue.
