I started this LO yesterday afternoon and finished it this morning. I left the journaling for last. My printer takes about 10 minutes to boot so I usually print things in bulk.
This is another attempt at heat embossing after my first disastrous one about five months ago when all the UTEE powder flew in the room and my embossing gun blew up in my hands. Despite all care and precaution I plugged my brand new 110 volts gun in 220. I think I am more successful this time because I just singed my fingers with the hot UTEE and didn't blow up anything.
Materials Used: Karen Foster Micro Paper Bundle from Nina. She actually gave them to Cabbie but we hijacked a few from her. Black dymo tape. MM acrylic paints. UTEE embossing powder. Queen & Co. photo turns.
Some Food Facts About Me
I took up Essentials of Cooking at the Heny Sison Culinary School for 20 days just to confirm to myself (and my dear husband) that I don’t like cooking.
I’d always eat dessert first if I could.
I heart chocolates, especially the dark and minty kind.
I have a food blog about my culinary (mis)adventures called www.food-envy.blogspot.com.
I like to bake. Unlike cooking, it doesn’t leave much room for guesswork. And I like knowing that if I follow the recipe exactly, I will be rewarded by something delicious in the end.
I can’t cook rice.
I am sooo lucky my husband is a very good cook.
DYMO labels: Loves to eat...Explorer of food.
The Process: I thought the micro papers looked like small table napkins/mats so I hoped they'd go well with the B&W photo of me eating ice cream at Cold Rock, Mall of Asia. I reversed printed the journaling in red. (I tried black too, but it looked heavy and red is more fun.) I searched www.thinkexist.com for food quotes. I liked Emma Bombeck's "I am not a glutton - I am a food explorer." But I left out the glutton part. Not quite there yet. Hehehe.
