Two points of interest on my desk this week; firstly some pictures of my purchases at the Papercraft Expo and then some experiment with a lovely Memory Box die called Big Slash Border.
I wore my WOYWW badge all day which drew quite a few comments of the "What's that?" kind, however there were no other Melbourne WOYWW folks there. Probably Saturday and Sunday were their favoured days. Here are a few pics to waltz through - enjoy.
|Part 1 of stash: replenishment department of sponges, Cuttlehug, and so forth.|
|Some stamps and stencils. The Girl's Faces by Jane Davenport are interesting.|
|Cutting dies. Love "Vintage Globes" by Fancy That. There's even one with the Pacific countries!|
|My first purchase of Distress Paint and some inks that work on silk.|
Now for what's on the creative desk? I used some of the Distress Paint on watercolour paper and then cut out the Big Splash border.
|First run on the left. Second run on the way. Notice ice blocks and lime in the water. It's HOT and I'm over it.|
|Here is the border. Happpy with it. I anchor the die for a second run through with florist tape which peels off easily.|
Well that's it for tonight. I must say I'm very sick of having over 30 degree C days. We had fourteen days over 30 in February and the next week is forecast to be the same with 36 after the weekend. The early mornings are spent doing a watering rotation, all by hand with green tea in the other hand.
