Greetings to all my WOYWW friends. I'm late this week and was pretty sparse with my comments because of all the busy work happening last week. Glad to say that my major project is now done, and perhaps there will be an opportunity to use it again down the track. Thank you for your comments last week and looking forward to seeing you later.
My desk this week uses a couple of the things I bought at Paperific and just some fanciful play with bits that came to hand or came out of a long period 'lost' in the cupboard.
|Working late today - note that the tea cup is now a scotch glass.|
On the left is my new storage box for blending sponges, coping with expansion. Clockwise from there is a collection of glue, reinkers, clock, cleaners, spray bottles and so on. Closer to me is the (empty) scotch glass, the distress inks, little tapestry stamps, tape, scissors, tweezers - I use tweezers a lot, being an old stamp collector. It comes very easily to me and helps me to place things accurately with my eye not to mention preventing burnt fingers or buckled surfaces when heat embossing.
The little panel is chicken wire stamped with silver ink and embossed with Judikins pastel EP which is effectively a resist technique. Enjoying a little rediscovery with the pastel powder. The little bird house is from Marianne I think and the bird is a Memory Box die. I stamped and stencilled leaves and berries then sprayed with Perfect Pearl. Will put up the finished card tomorrow.
Happy WOYWW travelling. Start over at Julia Dunnit's Stamping Ground if you'd like to see more desks around the world.
Miles of smiles,
