WOYWW 206

Holy smokes where have the weeks gone? I've been participating in WOYWW for the past seven months! Can you believe this world-wide hop has been going for FOUR YEARS! Congrats to our hostess, Julia. Please visit her blog The Stamping Ground for all the info and links to join us in our snooping desk hopping.

So my desk Tuesday night shows where I've left off working on a piece of canvas covered board. The board you may remember from last weeks WOYWW pic. This week I'll be adding a stencil design with embossing paste, stamping with distress inks and a few other goodies waiting in the wings.



I've used a photocopy of this beautiful pic taken by Kay. The minute I saw this picture card I was inspired and knew I would use it in an altered piece.



I have nine signed up to swap anniversary ATCs! I'll be emailing y'all this week for your snail mail addy, if I don't have it already.

Have a great week everyone!

Celebrate!

  6. I love that photograph of that machine what a find! I am longing to get some canvas on a piece of card and play with it. You seem to be going down the road I want to go down. Enjoy your journey.
    Talking of journeys, Flat Susan has set off early so hopefully it won't be too many weeks before you meet up with her.
    Take care, hugs, Neet 40 xx

  22. Your canvas board will be fantastic I think with all the layers you're doing... can't wait to see the end result. The old sewing machine photo is great! You'll have to share your ATC's you get back too. I can't believe it's been 7 months since you started posting with the WOWW's... time is flying!
