Hello, it's Louise here after a month a short break away. This month I decided to theme my post around football. Having 3 boys (4 if you include the big one), it was only ever a matter of time before football became an obsession in our house. Rob and Oliver went to see their first football match together when Manchester City played Wolverhampton Wanderers at home at the Etihad Stadium. Up to this point Ol had always been unsure of whether to be a blue like his dad, or follow his friends and be a red. He enjoyed the atmosphere at the match so much, and the fact that City won, that he pledged his allegiance to City.
I misted the chevron mistable paper with Hydrangea Maya Road mist, before laying a black grid Hambly overlay completely over the top. The hexagonal mistable paper was cut to size and the desired shape, but left plain. I hand cut a cluster of 3 hexagons, and a single one, painting them with blue acrylic paint. Once the paint had dried a quick rub over with a piece of kitchen towel, cleaned away any paint from the resistable areas. These painted elements were added to the LO using foam tape to add a little height.
A proud moment for Rob and Oliver, and for every City fan who wondered if the time would ever come again.
Where there is light, there must always be dark. Which brings me to my final LO. A LO to celebrate when Manchester United won their 19th title (insert spitting sound effect). A friend of ours appeared in the papers celebrating in the crowd behind Sir Alex Ferguson, so this LO was a keepsake for him, to remember the moment.
Well that's all from me for now. Remember to pop back every few days to see what the rest of the team create. We also love to see how you use products brought from the shop, or how we have inspired you to try something new. If you leave a link to your work we will come and have a look. And don't forget to play along with our monthly challenge for your chance to win a £20 e-voucher to spend in the shop. And with all the new goodies arriving from CHA, you'd be mad not to have a go.
