Venting In Technicolor and The Cuteness!




I have always held back in my venting. I don't quite know exactly why, I can guess it's because I don't want to hurt anyone and feel kind of silly venting. HOwever, I have discovered the perfect way of venting so that no-one can read what I write. These yummy pages were done in such a simple simple manner that I can't believe I haven't done them before!!! Here's the process:
I vented by writing in red one way, then blue another way, then green another way, then finally black or some other color. By the time I was finished covering each color once I couldn't even read what I was writing! So it's a guarantee that no one else will be able to read what I have written! LOL! So I am VENTING AWAY!!!!
I also saw someone paint gesso overtop of the writing with sharpies and some of the colors come forward when the gesso dries. I may have to give this a try one day!



And this is "The Cuteness"! I took this picture after he got home from youth camp and passed out on the couch. He is thirteen and I don't think he will ever stop being so darn cute!

Well, Happy creating everyone! I hope you have enjoyed my mid-week blog!

LOL I love your venting pages! What a brilliant idea. I have a 13 year old daughter and she is still cute as a button when she's sleeping.
