Yes Thursday is once again upon us, well by the time i post this it will probably have just crept into the early hours of Friday.......sorry about that! This week has not been a good one for me, i've not been well, my crafty mojo has packed it's bags and wandered off with a travelling craft fair, and to top it off i had a valuable item of crafty stash stolen too! Not good!
My fruity adventure this week started with me getting real excited in the supermarket when i found a real bizzare looking item amongst the fruit stands. Then when i get it home, i looked it up on the net as i didn't recognise it, and it turned out to be a vegetable! A rogue agent in amongst the fruit!!!
So today i was forced to try and ink a very common fruit, but with a difference.....i just wanted to ink a slice. Therefore, today fruity fans of the world, i give you.......a bit of orange!!!
This unfortunately, whilst being enjoyable to ink, didn't produce a good photo. The colours are brighter than this in real. However it was fun to watch the ink bleed along all the veins of the orange slice, a bit like you see the snowflake crystals making thier different shapes.
I didn't want to ink the outside today, i fancied a change, but the ink danced around in the juices of the orange nicely so i'm glad i went with the inside.
Fruitinkability rating? Not too thrilled with this one, i'd be quite happy to give it a 3, but as i'm probably being mean to the orange because i have man-flu, i'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt and award the orange a 4! I think the acidity of the juice reacts somewhat with the ink too.
I have had a couple of people asking if i really ink these fruits, so just for those inquisitive bloggers, heres the orange being prepared.....
You may notice in the background there a smaller sliced fruit, that was a lime that went even more wrong than the orange!!!
I forgot my gloves coz none of you reminded me.....so thats another week of inky hands! I still have a hint of pink in my thumbnail from the other day!
Thanks for tuning in everyone, it is very much appreciated that you stick by me through the rubbish fruit too! I just wish i had as much support when my stash gets stolen! :(
Nite all.....sweet dreams.....may they all be fruity ones! ;)
