Laugh, and Create

Laugh! LOL!

“There are no mistakes, just happy accidents.”

-Bob Ross

I recently created this card and I’ve got to say, I absolutely love it! I went through quite an adventure to make this card. If you want to know how, keep reading.

I was sitting on my chair, just wondering what to do. I was so bored, I can’t tell you! I already had my mind set on making a card, I was just wondering how I was going to make it.

Later in the day, I was surfing the net, to find Lady Liberty. I thought about a fact my teacher told me a long time ago, about Lady Liberty. The torch was gilded with with thin papers made of gold. Then it struck me! I rushed down to my garage, and picked up a few silver gilding sheets and some glue. I would make a silver-gilded card!

I wanted to cover the card with the silver gilding paper, then I would garnish the card with some sequins. To top it off, I would stamp the word “Laugh” right on top.

I hadn’t done gilding in about a year, so I had no idea how the card would turn out, but still, the surprise element fired me up. I spread the glue all over my card base and delicately placed the gilding sheet right on top the milky white card.

After about ten minutes of waiting, I started brushing away flakes of silver dust, and what I saw was horrific! The silver hadn’t made it to some big parts of the paper. I hastily tried fixing it, but I couldn’t. It was no use. I would just have to go through with the rest of my plan. I started gluing on sequins to the card. It was the only thing so far which was beautiful. I took out my stamping materials and stamped the word “laugh” on the silver, but the image just couldn’t be seen! Then I realized that it’s impossible to stamp on silver gilding sheets! How could I keep messing up like this?

I ripped some card and shaped it to be a rustic ripped rectangle. I took some distress ink in the color of yellow, and started giving the paper an old look. Since my card was already looking rustic, I couldn’t add anything fancy to it.

I stamped my image, and this time the image was clear. I glued the piece to my card. My card wasn’t that bad. In fact, it was actually really nice. It was abstract and different. My work was great. A happy accident.

    There are proxies for ScrapeBox and all other tools.

  30. This book was written by Gregg and Jess Oppenheimer in 1996. Jess was the producer and head writer of 153 episodes of I love Lucy and his son Gregg completed the memoir started by his father supplementing the original draft with journal entries and other materials his father collected over the years. This book not only gives an incredible back stage insight into I love Lucy but also stories from the early years of Jess’ family which I enjoyed very much. From how Jess’ father sold his stocks the week before 1929 crash(the family thought it was a terrible idea for a week), to how Jess became a writer for Fred Astair radio show (yes, he danced for the radio show audience). The stories were funny, entertaining, and revealing. Jess’s relationship with Lucy and the camaraderie on the set were interesting to read about. I also liked that the book included a large number of photos. I thoroughly enjoyed the stories and had a grin on my face through out the book. Ali Julia review
