Friday Fun Days with Smiles.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week amongst other things then I'm out walking with friends. See you later x

 
Yes it's gardening again! Round the front this time.

 
Still not done so praying for good weather as I still have the main part at the back to do yet.
 
However something completely different.
I saw two of these Grey Wagtails the other day which we have never seen in the garden before.

 
Apparently they like to be near water and I photographed them near the pond so maybe they were eyeing it up as their winter stop over.



 
 Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.
 
 And if you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.

WOYWW 382 # What's On You Workdesk Wednesday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends. 
Here we are for another Wednesday at the Workdesk. 
I am here again to show you:

"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
 
Stamping Ground, our host Julia will explain.


So here is my desk for today!

 
So much for the tidying up as it didn't happen, got distracted! Just made enough space to start the new project.
 
A canvas! an old book with pages ripped out! something's going on here for sure. Even the spray bottles in the background might give the game away Lol!

 
And that box! It has got to be sorted soon Lol!

 
And still no sign of Christmas cards!

So that's me done for today.

 Thank you for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,

Masterboard Monday with Seth's Stash.

 Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
I am here today to show you a card that I've made with a new Masterboard.

I still have lots of leftovers but felt it was time for something new.


I have managed to collect a few Seth Apter stamps, dies and embossing folders and really wanted to have a play.
I just love their quirky style.

To make this Masterboard I started with an A3 sheet of Kraft card. It had been tucked under the other sheets on my desk and already has some paint on it. This was done on purpose of course!!!!!!!

 
Anyway it doesn't matter because I have done this with it.
I used ink sprays to colour the card and some of them contained mica so you may be able to see a little shimmer on there too.

 
The following stages show the making of the Masterboard and construction of the card.
To decorate the sprayed background I used the following stencils and stamps.
 
 
Tim Holtz distress inks were used through the stencils then the stamp was applied with embossing ink and gold powder added and heated.


 
To construct the card I cut out a small section using the Neat and Tangled 'Punchinella' die, removed the dots and used those to decorate the edge of the card blank.
 
 
Then started to add the layers.
Textured paper with the edges distressed.

 
Gradually building this up, next with a piece of Kraft card.

 
Then added a small square of the Masterboard.

 
And embellishments.
These stars were cut using a Seth Apter die.

 
Finally added the sentiment, more of the Punchinella circles and coloured gems.

 
All ready to be sent out.
 
I still have plenty of the A3 Masterboard left so you can be sure that more cards will follow.
 
Hope you enjoyed watching me make this, any questions, just ask.
Happy crafting,
Angela x

Friday Fun Day with Smiles.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week.

Lots of gardening!!!!! all of this came from the plants along the fence.


Tidy or what!


Maisie and Stan watching on. 
Time they learnt how to garden Lol!


Pond next!
Everything is well grown at this time of the year and looks lovely but soon the weather will change and the plants will start to die off for their winter rest so it's time to clip them back and take out some of the overgrown parts or it would take over the whole pond.


Looks a bit sad now but that's life.


Still plenty to do yet and so far the weather is being kind.


If you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.


Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.

WOYWW 381 # What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey. 

Hi Workdesk friends. 
Here we are for another Wednesday at the Workdesk. 
I am here again to show you:

"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
 
Stamping Ground, our host Julia will explain.


So here is my desk for today!
Yes it's a bit messy but I am excused as I am between projects.

 
Just finished the card on the left and thinking about maybe doing something in my art journal.
As you can see the Christmas stuff has disappeared and all my good intentions have gone with it at least for the time being Lol!
The stamps on the top of my journal are not new just a few I've got out while I consider my next project.

 
The box on my desk is back to the explosion stage and I really must sort it before starting my next project. There are a few new dies tucked in there too.

 
So that's me done for today, hopefully by next week there may be something more interesting.......... you never know!

 Thank you for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,

Angela x
