Texture - Good and Bad...
This is a card I received from my dear friend Theresa (no blog). She really needs to be on a design team because her work is so fabulous! This card is her version of T!m Holtz's Tag techniques. I assure you this photo does not do justice to the texture and sheen Theresa has created. I am so happy to receive this in my mail this week as my studio is off limits right now. Thank you Theresa Dear!!!
Here is another view and if you click on the photos they should enlarge so you may see her incredible texture results that are so Good!
Now here is texture that is bad. The tile has been removed from our concrete floor and stairs leading out to the garages and Mr. C's "Toybox". Thankfully Mr. C had a couple of helpers who with him managed to get a lot accomplished in just one day. This renovation has taken on a bigger spectrum than we anticipated. But then I believe all projects tend to expand as they begin to take on their own lives.
Lots of angles and curves in this project.
Here you can see the stairs that lead up. We tried to minimize the spread of dust and debris with plastic sheeting. But alas we all know when dust wants to travel and settle where it shouldn't...well it does what it wants no matter how much we try to prevent it. While the stairs are in essence closed off we are having to travel upstairs and downstairs by going outside and around. Not very convenient...especially when we forget and leave the keys on the wrong floor. At least I am getting my exercise...Oh but then I am eating way more chocolate. A girl must have energy you know!
Here is a picture of the actual gutted bathroom. All those studs you see at the end shower wall are for the curved stairs which are just on the other side of this bathroom. I am amazed to see how things are built and this is truly interesting to me. Lots more work ahead...and we know we will have some delays in the next few weeks due to other committments.
We still have no rain or snow and we are being reminded and warned how this years drought will be much worse than last year. I am loving our Spring weather however I am praying for Winter. I shutter to think of another Summer with fire danger and our well running dry.
Nothing creative for me at this time due to the renovations. My studio is filled with overflow stuff and the noise and dust is too much since my room is right near all this commotion. That is okay as I am a very patient girl. This project is far more important than me gluing or glittering right now.
Thank you for leaving me comments. I enjoy taking a break to read your blogs and happenings. Creative Bliss...
