So I was at Goodwill looking for a lamp, and there was this stack of mouse pads for $1.99…the rubbery kind with the polyester-type layer on top, all white and blank and calling, “laser me!”
Does anybody even USE mouse pads any more?
Anyway, I had this cute photo I had snapped a couple of weeks ago, when our 8yo granddaughter had just snatched my husband’s baseball cap to put on her own head, replaced it with a toy top hat on his, and then struck a pose. The kid’s a natural actor. Hubs looked kind of grim, because he’d just had spine surgery and was in a lot of pain. It kind of reminds me of American Gothic, if American Gothic had included an adorable karate uniform-clad kid wearing a sideways baseball cap.
And I’d been wanting to play with the Rasterbator. So you can guess what happened next. (Also the sage is in bloom, and it’s pretty, so I decided to abandon the usual Glowforgey backdrop.)
I redid it a couple of times getting the settings right, and it kind of ate into the rubber a little in the dark areas, so I might die. But hopefully I can get a few more projects done first.
