WOYWW #182 - Sunshine

The sun is out all right with the world, and its Wednesday again! So that can only mean snoopy time again.  If you don't know what I mean, go over to the STampinground run by the lovely Julia for details.

On my desk are the result of a class I did with Helen Chilton at the Craftbarn on Saturday, Gothic Arches in a semi Christmas theme.  We used paint crackle medium embossing stamping ( with the Lynne Perrelli Xmas stamps by Paperartsy) wire and beads.  It was a great day and really enjoyable.  The 3 unadorned arches are experiments I have done yesterday using different mediums.  the one in the middle is actually all gold with hints of crimson and crackle.  I hope to finish today so will blog when done.  Have a good day all.

WOYWW #181

Its that time again, to allow the snoopers of the world to look at your desk.  for the details go over to the lovely Julia's at Stampinground. So this is my untidy messy desk today.  I have been playing with Stampbord which I have had for years and re discovered, plus a xmas tag.  The tag is based on an idea I did at the show at the NEC, unfortunately I have misplaced the ladies card who demoed.  But this is my take on her demo.
This is a close up the one that looks faded, was actually an error, I stamped with Distress instead of Archival, so the ink sank into the stampbord, but managed to save it.  So wishing everyone a good WOYWW.

Wave Bye Bye

Yesterday or rather Friday evening as I was taking a class on Saturday, i waved bye bye to my parents.  Off on a months cruise around the Caribbean.  This is the card I made for my Mum's 83rd birthday whilst they are away.  thought it was apt, plus could use the fab Graphic 45 papers, plus try out the Frantage embossing power .  Those are the splodges to make it look like sand.  The reason my Dad had to go on the cruise now is Mum has always wanted a Bar-b-que on her birthday, unfortunately having a birthday in Dec and being in the UK, abit cold.  So he has taken her on the cruise so she can have the BBQ....well that is his story.   Lovely sunny day here today but cold .  Have a good one.

WOYWW 180#

Where oh where are the weeks going, missing last week due to a power break .  Followed by getting ready to go to the NEC in Birmingham  for the Hobbiecraft craft show etc, how manic Saturday was, but Sunday far better.  1st pic shows my new stash, some new Tim Holtz stuff which had been reduced, some Treasure Gold and gold leaf paint , stamps, new inktense pencils, plus lots more........
This is a journal page I made, using Pan Pastels at the show, really enjoyed my self.  As you can see used some Dylusion stencils, stamp not sure who's there were, and some iridescent paste.  Nice way to spend 3/4 hour.
Last a piece I'm working on.  Base is Distress stains, then I have stamped my image plus another image onto tissue paper, cut out and added to highlight the pianist and music.  Then I have used my new Inktense pencils to highlight.  So that what is on my desk, if you want to see others go over to the lovely Julia's blog.  Have a good week everyone.
