WOYWW #714


How can it be Wednesday again? Thank you to all of you who commented on my blog last week  hope I get round to all of you this week!

 Anyway I am linking to the Stamping Ground!

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 #714

This morning I have been continuing with a Wanderlust  workshop involving pastels and linseed oil.

I used the toilet roll on my desk to mop up some of the oil.

I also used the little palette of water colours to paint some images.

Can you also see that I invested in Tim Holtz new colour... lost shadow? And some new dies in the box at the back of the desk...

To finish a picture from the Australian Garden next door:

Wishing you a happy week...

Happy  WOYWW!

Continuing with my Alice Junk Journal

Today I am adding some images that came from LeighSB Designs  to my Alice Junk Journal.

The first new page (left hand side) features

I printed the image, coloured it with watercolours, added black soot Distress Ink around the edges and then some penwork.

My second page uses White Rabbit Grunge Collage

I used the same watercolours, distress ink and penwork.

This next page has a flap to contain some cards. This one is one I made some while ago, also using the Grunge Rabbit.

It is a flip up card.

Happy Crafting!

I wandered lonely as a cloud


Have you found the new home of the Outlawz Sunday Song & Rhyme Challenge yet?

I do hope you will go and check it out! 

Our Song/Rhyme this fortnight is ...

I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud 
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.


Inspired by: Daffodils... Tossing their heads...

I have made a simple card using papers from
DCWV Botanical Beauty and Francheville In Bloom.
The jar and daffodil heads were cut using a cutting die Spring Delight by Precious Marieke. The sentiment was from Stamplorations.

If you haven't already, please join our 
to stay up with all the challenges.
Thanks for playing along!

Happy Crafting!

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #534

These are my makes for the

Do pop over to the Color Dare Challenge and take a look at my teamies' makes!

This is today's colour scheme - I used several of the colours!

I used a yellow card base matted with a patterned paper from my stash.
The heart shape image was from Gecko Galz. The sentiment was from Stampin Up.

I used the Stampin Up set Share a Milkshake bundle (stamps and dies) for this sentiment and the milkshake and spoon and hearts using a variety of inks. Finally I used a black fineliner to emphasise the shapes.
This is my second version:

Hope you will join the Color Dare Challenge...

This was one of a set of several Valentine Cards.
