WOYWW #165

 Oh where, oh where has the week gone.  Firstly the opening of the Olympics, as well as my hubbies birthday.  Friends came around , thought they would go before the opening ceremony, but no we all sat watching and were  amazed.  Saturday Dad,s birthday another late night.  Sunday garden opening of a friend of mine.  So then back to my desk, for WOYWW co ordinated by Julia, for a play of all the stash I have.  The 2 light coloured tags are done with Pan Pastels, I only have a small selection but fab to use.  Pink one sun burst embossing with alcohol inks.  Dots etc, distress stains and inks, same as umbrella man. Bright orange distress stains again, then drawing with glue pen and glitter.....the last is a test of Tim's crackle paint but a metallic, crackle really well and looks great, doesn't show so well here.   Then I thought you might like to see behind my desk at new shelf I won, when my local craft shop moved premises.  Trying to tidy my clutter, ha ha ha.
Tea cup hooks are holding some of my unmounted stamp stash, then shelf so far some wooden stamps.  Well thats it from me.  Wishing you all a good week....

  1. All of your tags are brilliant especially love the one on the far left bottom with all the colours on it such a fab job you have done.

    Love the storage shelve too and that is a good idea with the cup hooks for the stamp stash.

    Happy crafting

  3. Hi Francesca looks like you've been having a lot of fun with your gorgeous tag backgrounds. I love having a play with my paints ,inks etc. the pebbles you spotted on my desk are my home done di blenders. They're actually wooden knobs with cut and dry foam stuck on. I've been building them up over the years. Thanks for popping by toni x

  6. Great post Francesca, love all the artwork you've done with the different media. Beautiful colours and textures. Love the new shelf too! Well done, getting that. You've had a busy week what with all the birthdays and the Olympics!

    I'm glued to the latter and just wowed with the rest of the country over Our Bradley of the Golden Sideburns going for Gold, and our 2 lovely ladies rowing to the same this morning - I'm surprised I didn't burn the ironing watching that!!!

    Have a great WOYWW,
