But first the desk...
|Paperfic purchases and Christmas accents|
As you will know from my previous post, I went to the Paperfic Show last Saturday and bought a few goodies. Stands to reason that my purchases might encourage certain activities. I bought the Creatables die-cutters which are light blue and cut out two sets using the Big Shot. These Christmas cut-outs will be lovely for decorations, for cards, and for grand-daughter activities when she comes to stay.
The set on the right are cut out of 250 gsm card which was nearly too heavy. The set on the left are embossed with Judikins Aegian Silver, a fine Gold EP, and some deep blue EP combined with aqua PearlEx powder. I sprayed it with workable fixitive and feel quite pleased with the result.
Other things of interest might be some bottles of Liquid Pearls and part of the Tim Holtz film strip die-cut all of which came from Paperific. On the left side of the photo above the heat tool, is a piece of blotchy stuff which has somehow migrated to my craft desk. It is a slice of zebra rock from the Kimberley area in the north west of Australia. It's fascinating how the distinct colours occur in stripes throughout the very fine sedement and remain discrete as it turns to stone. Because it is such fine sedementary rock, the cut cross section is exceedingly smooth - one of my favourite keep-sakes from travelling up north some years ago.
Now I could do with some suggestions for interesting things to do with egg whites. I have passionfruit icecream churning in the background as I write and egg whites stranded in the refrigerator. Any ideas gratefully received.
Yours as ever,
