WOYWW #213...for real...

Not only is today Wednesday, (and the Wednesday before July 4th-Holiday!!) but it is also our day for peeking in on craft desks around the world, thanks to Julia at the Stamping Ground.

And on my desk; the same lily images I colored last week, just moved over out of the way.  On the pad are the paper weavings I’ve done to go with them.  I will say, even if that has been the only technique I embraced from the Online Card Class “Pattern Play”, it has definitely paid for itself! Well, maybe not, as those are new paper packs to the left, that I had to get to, you know, make sure I had palettes I could use to, erm, weave…

All the toppled bottles are the Judikins Mica Gloss, and yes, this seems to be working, as the mica pigments seem to be easier to mix up, and as they are in my face, I have managed to shake every one up every time I’m in the room.  Not to self; if I ever buy more Adirondack dabbers  or distress crackles, I’m going to do the same thing. Of course I’ll need more room to keep bottles lying about, but we’ll deal with that later.

The purple papers are from said Mica Gloss; eggplant and silver. Still playing around to try to get the rich effect that is displayed all around the Judikins show booth, and I will get there! 

And here is a card I made for my Mother’s dear friend who dislocated her hip in a fall.  I embossed the gloss paper, then used a Tim Holtz die to cut out the opening, creating a mat. 

So happy WOYWW! And Happy 4th . Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. You shake your bottles every day? Hmmmn! You need one of them thingey machines that forensic scientists have to shake them up for you when you are not there!!

  8. Lovely card, is that a stamp or did you draw the flowers? As for shaking the bottles every day, I can imagine adding that to the list when we go away, feed dogs, water greenhouse, shake bottles - hmmm don't think so, I would struggle to remember to do it myself!
    I don't know why (well I do it was blogger) I thought I was 113, so went and visited all the 3s and told them I was 113. Someone told me I am 136 - so I am whoops, so I am starting over on the 6s, not sure how far I will get!
