Happy What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday everyone!
So, my desk still has some bits and bobs on it from last week...the glycerine and the surgical spirits remain untouched (hangs head in shame)...but I did get a chance to play with the recipe Mary Anne put on her blog for homemade embossing paste.
After trying colouring it the other week with alcohol inks, I decided to try metallic acrylic paint and added some more talc as it made it a little thin.
It went through my Tim Holtz stencil quite nicely
But I really liked the way it took with my silver birch stencil from Crafters Workshop.
You can see the depth I managed to get with it a bit better on this shot.
The metallic sheen is still there, but it is not as shiny-and I love the way it all smells of talc!!
My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are: 'Stars weds blonde fans' - odd, but not as macabre as last weeks!
So, if you fancy stopping by some desks across the globe and having a legal snoop, pop over to Julia's blog (there is a link on the right).
