Welcome to another What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday…Julia’sfrom the Stamping Ground fabulous idea of opening our craft room doors to allow others to take a peek…nose about; see what everyone is working on…fun stuff for the middle of a week!
This morning, which, for me means as I left it over the weekend, (Do I have to wait another 17 years before I can craft during the week, with no guilt?? If so, I really need to win the lottery!) are some images I’m coloring to go on some cards for the craft show…see I’m getting prepared! It's not until Oct., but I just can’t come up with a lot of designs in a short amount of time. These will bemodeled after a birthday card I made for my Mother in Law, with the paper weaving technique from the online class Pattern Play.
The bottles are the Mica Gloss from Judikin’s that I’m still playing with and trying to perfect. As they have to be well mixed, I’m keeping them lying down, and try to spin them every time I get up there…who knows..it may work really well…or not…we’ll see….Don’t worry, that knocked over paper cup is empty; I have started using distilled water for my water brushes, misters, etc. since some of my perfect pearl mixes developed a funny smell; our water has so much iron and magnesium, I figured it couldn’t hurt., and I use the cup to pour, as opposed to trying to fill a mister from a gallon jug; because that doesn’t work….just sayin’. Oh, and yes, the bottle: Crispin Hard Apple Cider…my DH found it, and it is very yummy; Strongbow is still my fav, and can be occasionally found in draft at some bars in the US; am so looking forward to my trip in Oct., so I can revive my acquaintance! LOL!
I also played a bit with some more ATC’s, as our 4th anniversary PIF has reminded me how much I like making them; this is one that is flying over the sea as we speak…and it gave me a chance to use my new TH clipboard die; took a few tries to totally figure out the spacing, and it is pretty darn cool!!!
So, I’ve shown you mine; I’m going to peek in on some of yours…so have a great week everyone!
