----- Dont Panic ------
reading the title some must be thinking.....oh no.... what happened to the bear? Well it's not the bear; nor me; I'm ok, aside from a few minutes of complete silent terror that I could of done without. Let me explain:
----- Case File 001 -----
Some may know that; for christmas; I made my mum a card; instead of buying one. She thought this was really cleaver and patted me on the back for using up some of the random card and stuff in my craft cupboard. Taking that onboard I decided to make her a Mother's Day Card. However; unlike her Christmas card I would only have limited time to do it in (say 4 days; verses the 15 I had to do her christmas one). I would therefore have no time to do little pieces at a time, everything would have to be done at once and then set somewhere to allow the glue and paint to dry.
After making the card, nearing it's completion stages my mum came in from shopping early and I had to quickly put the card somewhere where she wouldn't see it and where it had pleantly of space to dry.
I, being hungry and pre-GB boarderline snappy, thought that the corner of the cupboard where I keep my paints would be a good place to store the card. I was severly mistaken.
A red Acrylic bottle in a shade I never liked decided to have a leakage... over my hard work of course.
When I discovered that this morning I silently screamed (silently; because my mum was in the kitchen) over the horror of my painted monstrosity. I didn't even photograph it, because a small part of my brain would explode everytime I looked at it.
Needless to say the card was ruined. covered in (now dryed in) red acrlic paint. I am now going to have to salvage what I can and buy her one from the shop. *sigh*
