I found them on page 280. Sadly, the colours are completely off. The first one which was done with a bubble wrap technique and a stamp from Paper Artsy (Men of Numbers plate 4) is hot pink, but this is quite dulled down. The second one, is so washed out, you can barely tell what I did and again, the colour is off. I am disappointed. I don't know what happened. The cover of the book turned out really nice and there are a wide variety of techniques used in the ATCs featured. I will be buying a copy for posterity, regardless.
After the swap, I met up with my guys and we drove to Vanier Park, parked the car and walked along False Creek to Granville Island. This is the marina we passed along the way. As you can see, it was a beautiful day.
This is the sign welcoming you to Granville Island, under the bridge. I never get to take a picture because usually I am driving under it. And how Canadian-there's a banner underneath announcing a sugaring off! Too funny!
I took this pic just for Liz. *wink* Kroma is this wonderful paint company on Grandville Island. They sell acrylic paints, gesso, fluid, gels and matte mediums, etc. and all of it is manufactured right there. They are comparable to Golden paints, but less expensive because they are locally made. I love their stuff!
There are lots of little shops on the island, many of them catering to tourists, but it's always interesting to see what's in them.
Here's a shot of "the Lions" the two peaks in North Vancouver that are a city landmark. You can see them from most points in the city. Gorgeous!
Right near where I parked my son spotted this eagle's nest high up in a tree. My husband said he had seen an eagle fly from it when we first arrived. You can't tell by this picture, but the nest is HUGE. The only other birds I have seen locally with nests this large are the herons in Stanley Park. We ended our day with a trip to Mondo Gelato, the best gelato place in the city. I had one scoop of coffee and one of hazelnut. MMM!
It was a lovely day, marred only by the fact that when I got home, there was a voice mail message waiting, telling me one of my uncles had died. It made me think of The World is a Beautiful Place by Lawrence Ferlinghetti. It's the last line I was thinking of.
"but then right in the middle of it
comes the smiling
*sigh* Not the kind of news I wanted to come home to, but such is life.
