WOYWW 450 # What's On Your Wordesk 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!
Wonder if you can see there is something different, I bet you can.
Anyway back to the little journal that I'm working on.
I have lots of half made pages so thought I would try and complete some of them.

 
Some part finished pages.
Most need Text to complete them but I just can't decide what.
 
 
More backgrounds for me to work on next.
 
Stamping and stencilling for the next page.

 
 
Stencilling to start this page.

 
Glued down some tissue paper for this one and I've done a little bit with stencils and that's where it stopped.

 
Not sure where these are going either, just found these images in a magazine and liked them.
 

Yet more incomplete pages!



 Who knows maybe one of these may be completed soon, I just seem to keep making backgrounds at the moment.

 So That's me done for today.

Thanks 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,

Back to the Craft Barn with Kim Dellow.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi everyone just here to let you know this is another project for the Craft Barn and it's live now.

I've been working with  Kim Dellow stamps and here is a peek of how I used them.

Everything you see is made using the technique of stamping.
Stamped background, the images stamped and fussy cut. love that technique, layering the stamped images to give depth and to add more detail I used a white pen over the flowers.
If you would like to see the stages in making this card then pop over to The Craft Barn for full details.



Tutorial for making this project is available now at The Craft Barn.

I would love to hear what you think about my project and any comments will be gratefully received.
 

Look forward to seeing you at The Craft Barn.
 
Happy crafting,

Friday Fun Day.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Angela here again to show you the things that have made me happy this week.

Maisie is here today to welcome you but she got bored so she's having a nap.

 
We seem to have lots of visitors in the garden at the moment and this Woodpecker arrived this week.
 
 
The weather has been a bit dull but his colours still stand out here.
 
Oh Maisie! still sleeping I'm afraid! but who wouldn't love that sweet face.

 
Now the next bird I'm still not sure about as I've been doing other things and not had time to research what it might be.
It was a surprise to see it sitting in the tree.


 The photographs aren't brilliant as I had to take them from inside the house and it was a very dull day too.
I think someone needs to get the conservatory windows cleaned Lol!
Any way these are what I managed to get before it flew off.



 
By the look on this face it knew I was there.

 
Any ideas?
 
Finally I am going to show you this but I'm saying nothing at this stage, more to follow.
 

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 449 #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!
All set up for some Art journaling.

 
I want to do more in my journals so decided to start with this little one from 'Heart From the Heart'.
This is the one that I take away with me on holiday because I am sad Lol! Sometimes it gets used and sometimes it doesn't.
I am working on some backgrounds to begin with to hopefully get me in the mood Lol!
 
The pages are often a bit messy so started by covering these with Gesso.
That's just scrap paper under the pages. I do try and keep the other pages clean but it doesn't always work cos I'm messy.


 Next lots of Distress Oxide ink.

 
Dry that and add black distress ink around the edge going inwards towards the centre and then splatter water over it.

 
I used another piece of card to blot this.

 
Which gave me these pages.
 
 
The card I used to blot with ended up like this.

 
You could blot it with other papers, kitchen roll is also one of my favourites but you could use fabric too depending on what your plans are for it. As yet I'm not sure what I will use this for but when I know I'll tell you!


 So That's me done for today, tried not to keep you too long.

Thanks 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,

This one was such fun to make with some old car tax discs.

 
I so love the Distress Oxide Inks, the colours are so intense.





And a little bit of Steampunk to complete the selection.




I would love to hear your comments, maybe you would like to choose your favourite Masterboard.
