WOYWW #784


It is Wednesday so I am linking to WOYWW. By now I expect that you know that Julia decided to bow out - after 15 years! - so the Stamping Ground is no longer the place to link.

Instead go to Sarah's blog at Sarah's craft shed

Follow the link to find out more about What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday and maybe join in... This is my post for WOYWW #784 and Sarah is certainly getting into the swing!

Here is my work table today:

On the desk easel is the journal page from my featured post.

This weekend has been a 'long weekend' celebrating the King's Birthday. Sophie came to stay but the weather was horrendous so we ended up crafting and shopping online - and enjoying a few bubbles!

We did some pouring - you might be able to see one of my hexagons on the desk. I put the other on my perpetual calendar.

You might also notice some purchases and the odd Gelli pull on my desk...

I was delighted to receive another super ATC - thank you BJ!

I finished off week one of the ICADS:

There is also a theme for each week so I have been trying to bear these in mind too...

I have also started on week 2:

These are the ones I have made so far:

I need to do ellipse today...

Anyway that's all from me today. Hope to visit you all later...I managed about half lats week (later on!)

Happy WOYWW!

Addicted to Stamps and More #470 die cuts/stencils

This is my Die cut/Stencil project...for Challenge #470 at Addicted to Stamps and More

I have used a Gelli pull on a white card blank.
This used the Visible Image stencil Halftone.
 After trimming this to size I added distress ink around the edge.
 I then added the BeeArty foliage die cut, cut in blue.

I then added the sentiment which was white but did not show up very well. So I added Distress Oxide prize ribbon to it before attaching it in place.

Hope you will enter the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge! Do hop over to see the fabulous inspiration from my team-mates!

  Happy Crafting!

Creative Warriors Inspiration Team - New Term #3


       This is my next inspiration for the Creative Warriors Inspiration Team 

with Michelle Grant Designs

You will see our inspirational creations on the Facebook Group

Today I have used an image from Michelle's Renew.

Along with the colour board for the June Challenge on the Creative Warriors.

First I printed the image on tissue ripping away the left hand side.
 After sticking this in my journal I drew new lines to extend the image.
 I then used translucent paints (Indigo Blu) to colour the page.
I then added black and white Posca and markers to make lots of mark making!

Happy Crafting!
