Look What I Got!!!

If you are a regular Rust-Tex.blogspot.com reader you will know I have been whining about a wonderfully rusty cookie sheet that is rapidly deteriorating. On Sunday, June 10, 2007 I said I would post a picture of the results of the set up pictured there. Well here it is:
Boring!!!
There is no white line around a heart, there is hardly a heart, and the red barely made it to pale pink. Armed with the knowledge of what didn't work but still wanting to use that cookie sheet. I tried the same set up but used green tea instead of quebracho red. I also didn't put any tea on area of the napkin that was not bunched up.
Here is the second attempt:
Notice how the "heart" is staying white. On point that white area reminded me of a big white cloud floating over water so...
Third time is a charm!!!
Looks like I made a Stormy Seas fabric instead of my usual Stormy Skies.
I wish you a successful creative experience, cause mine was way fun!!!!

I understand your whining about your cookie sheet. A good tool is hard to lose. Love how the third try one turned out.

Your Rust-Tex CD was in a posting on the Downunderdale blog. Here is the link http://downunderdale.blogspot.com/2007/06/rust-and-stuff.html

I hope to make it to the meeting in July. I have been sick for over 2 months and unable to leave the house.

I have been enjoy my creative experience the past week dyeing fabric.
