Happy Anniversary WOYWWers! Congratulations Julia for creating and nurturing this wonderful weekly blog hop. It's been wonderful getting to know so many crafters from all corners of the world, peeking into their creative process, and it's amazing how quickly time flies.
And the peek at my desk….this Wednesday morning (actually since Monday night…) is actually pretty tidy! Pretty funny since at one point I texted a friend saying it was like I had Crafting ADD. I had 3 projects going, all in various drying stages. I started an online class called Inventive Inks: Colorful Mixed Media Effects, and had work going for 4 of the lessons. I started my Compendium Challenge piece, and was working on a birthday card I remembered to move from the picture!
What you see is the butterfly for the class using the Shattered Stain’s technique. It’s a little darker than I planned. The box is for the compendium challenge, using Eroded Metallic technique…sort of a fail there…still need practice. The tags are various samples from the first 2 lessons of the Inventive Ink class, all waiting for some kind of finishing. I have paints, stains, gesso, a jar of tiny flowers, tools, and a stamp set all to get put away.
The post before this shows my start at the art journal. The butterfly may end up there..so stay tuned. I still have a week, so the little box may not make it to the challenge, depending if I can work up a more successful attempt.
My ATC’s for swapping are already at work ready to get mailed…As some have already been posted, and I royally messed up a few others mid-design, I only have one spare homeless one (not including the one for my designated *person) so leave a comment that you’d like to adopt it, and I’ll randomly pick someone. And who knows…maybe I’ll risk the red paint/molding paste disaster and make up a few more!
Now go say Hello to Julia and see what this WOYWW phenom is all about! Have a great week everyone!
