WOYWW

Wow, taking part in Julia's WOYWW certainly does make you realise how quickly the week flies by!  On my desk this week-lots of inking.  I made some more acetate coloured with alcohol inks and tissue paper (my first ever tutorial is on an earlier posting) and have cut TH tattered florals from them, adding some gesso'd die cut (Colin is getting a good workout) vintage book pages.  These are for some large flowers need to decorate a 13th birthday card for my niece (13!!!!  forget Wednesdays flying by....where did those 13 years go?!)-which is just peaking off on the right of the picture-a large A4 card, but I'm not going to mention that anymore until after her birthday.


I have also flocked a mega large pink brad and the very small flower and moth is some metal contact tape I 'recycled' from my Dad's shed!!  I coloured it with alcohol inks again (boy are my fingers and old crafting jeans looking colourful!!) and overstamped the moth with the accompanying stamp (a lovely paperartsy product).  The small flower was a boring plain cardboard flower in a colour I didn't like-it's now a lovely rainbow and metallic hue!

Welcome also to new follower, Von, who has left many a nice comment-welcome Von.

So, if you're at a loss what WOYWW is pop over to Julia's blog (there is a large link on the right) and have a nose around the many and varied desks-its like legalised stalking and quite voyeuristic!!

Happy Crafting
