WOYWW #205!

WOYWW's 4th anniversary is speeding towards us! Mojo don't leave me now...need an idea for my ATCs to swap! For all the details about the swap and other anniversary doings visit Ms Julia at theStamping Ground .

Now on to my desk...a few projects were left last night in the drying stages. Front and center is the piece I started in Andy's Book of Ruination class. I've finally made to the 'ready for the finishing touches' stage! With some of the leftover paint I've coated an ATC with weedy die cut. Plus a few die cuts to spare. I see now I should of grabbed a white piece of card and smooched onto the negative image on the mat. Oh well, I'll peel off this leftover paint and use it for texture on something else.

On the left you'll see a canvas board covered with distress stains, drying. The colors were inspired by the cool pic of the old sewing machine. In fact, see that stack of pics under it? That's the happy mail I received from Kay at 505whimsygirl ! Thank you Kay, I love them.

Just to the left of those is my attempt at faux burnt wood....stay tuned. :)

Have a wonderful day everyone! I'm out and about shopping for new glasses so I can better see all of your amazing work!

Celebrate the life!

  3. That looks to be a lovely picture on the left and I love that strong blue you are using at the moment. Pretty flowers above it too but are they stamped on a craft mat (forgive these old eyes if I am wrong). Love the flowers.

  13. What fun and wonderful projects you have going on!! Great idea to peel up the dried left over paint on the craft mat to use as texture! I think I'll intentionally do some craft mat painting ! Can't wait to see all the final versions of everything! I spy an old? lock up on the shelf... is it real or a die cut...

  25. I am still trying to play catchup from last week as I have had a bit of a hectic week!
    That looks an interesting and very blue project on your desk!
    As for my name Hettie...it is what my Dad used to call me as a little girl. My Mum didn't want the name so it kinda got to be my pet name! Tee Hee! I do love it though hence why I use it now!
