My internet buddy and I decided to jump in with both feet and meet in person with two days of drinks, giggles and crafting. It was just the greatest experience. There's a lot of weirdos on the internet, and apparently that's just my type ;) Seriously! I love all of you nuts.
I was trying to think up a craft we could do together and when Paula mentioned wanting to see Mad Max I knew exactly what to do.
We disassembled, reassembled, and glued this to that. It was serious business!
Then a good coat of matte black spray paint. As soon as that paint is on there, things start to take shape and we felt like total bad asses!
Finally we added layers and layers of colour. I am absolutely thrilled with how these turned out.
Such a fun project that really lends itself to being messy and just enjoying the process of making and tinkering.
The final pieces are sort of Mad Max meets Geiger meets DeMeng and I'm crazy about all of those things so I'm a-ok with that.
Here's Paula's fantastic contraption...
Isn't it just so great? And she claims she's not a crafter! Pffft!
I am particularly smitten with this car because it lights up and makes vrooomy noises.
Such a fun project. Such a good time.
Yay for internet strangers that become good buddies.
