Some of you have become distressed over my conspicuous absence from Bloglandia.
I really did not think you would notice.
I assure you I am well and offer some distressed roses for your enjoyment.
First gather the cheapest fake bunch of white roses you can find.
The idiot bushes are great for this project.
Mix up some walnut crystals in a little water.
It is convenient to mix it in a spray bottle.
Hack them apart using tin snips.
Lay them out on your 50 cents screen from Habitat.
Greenery or no greenery?
I go ahead and squirt the greenery in case I want to use it later.
Make sure to spray all around the flowers.
These were in direct sunlight for about two hours in ninety degree heat.
No trouble drying.
Avoid contact with your hands.
The walnut ink is not really toxic but will turn your hands brown.
I wrapped a lovely paper towel around the bunch of distressed roses.
Beautiful styled in one of the prairie baskets.
Notice the edges take on a burnt look.
I have separated this bunch to use as decorative accents on other projects.
Yes, I have been busy working.
My computer picked up some annoying adware bug and had to be taken to get it exterminated.
I have continued my quest to knit a washcloth. I will show progress in a later post.
Chucks and I have been doing a major downsizing of our junk.
Truckloads have left to parts both known and unknown.
Then there is just my summer-lazy habit of procrastination.
