Last week I shown some new goodies on of them being a new heat gun as I had melted my other, I had lots of enquires on how I managed to do that so to start with I shall show some pictures of my old heat gun and how I managed to do it lol. Then after I shall show my desk with some new bits on and the other desk has lots of backgrounds that I have done using sprays and salt which has not turned out fantastically :-(
So, the melted heat gun, one day on Create and Craft I was watching Sheena melt some UTEE in a mince pie case and thought I shall have a go, so I think I used way too much UTEE and spent ages with my heat gun up really close and suddenly I was wondering what the crackle sound and weird smell was and believe it or not I had melted my heat gun, the reflection of the foil was heating up the heat gun instead of melting the UTEE!!!!
My OH says that he had not noticed before but the CE is wrong, well
not particular wrong but means Chinese Export not the CE we know as
European Conformity. In other words probably why I get it cheaper lol.
Some new bits I have bought in the sales with my Christmas money
and promarkers I need to put away lol.
I have seen this technique with salt done many times in The Craft Stamper
magazine and other blogs, I used Dylusion sprays and rock salt on
water coloured card. But I'm not sure I have got it right yet, think
I either used way too much spray or way way too much salt.
There ok to cut some tags to use but if anybody has any ideas
why some of them are a bit messy then I would love to know lol
Right I shall be off, I am not at work until Tuesday so I am enjoying being in my craft room, but I have been doing some sorting like yesterday I put Christmas back in it's box on the higher shelve and took the craft room Christmas tree done and then did some mega dusting (well hoovering actually as I have a real bad sinus allergy to dust mites). Hope you all have a fantastic week, I'm off now to see lots of other crafty desks.
Happy Woyww :-) Hugs Kerry xxx
