Hello peeps, are you enjoying the lovely weather in the UK?
It's been stunning weather, I may work in an office with no windows but at least when I get home it is still light and reasonably warm and all the washing is drying lovely!
So, What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday?
Actually some new stuff for a change!
I have been sorting through my scraps box and separated all the green shades of paper (including a clothing tag from Seasalt-it was too pretty to throw away!)
I am not sure what I am going to make, but I did have some leftover kitchen roll with purple, green and yellow inks soaked into it that I used as a mop up cloth from making my ATC's (which are hidden at the back of the desk-stacked up, I have made 17 in all) so I separated the layers and stamped some brown script all over and glued it to a manilla tag.....I am sure inspiration will strike at some point (I do admire those of you who plan your layouts and cards....I must admit I sort of stare at my stash and scrap box, chuck a ton of it on my desk and floor and then wait for inspiration to strike, you can tell I don't have pets or kids!!).
I have also been experimenting a bit again. Below is a necklace pendant I bought for 10p at our local church jumble-I know, a whole 10p!
The first Buddha head was made with my scrap store foil tube over the top of the face and rubbed over then dyed - not very good definition.
The second head was made with the same metal tube but this time it was placed into the recess of the face on the back of the pendant and once again rubbed all over with a paper stump to get definition. I dyed it with alcohol inks-I think this is my favourite.
The third was made again in the recess but this time with air drying clay then some gilding wax applied to highlight some of the features.
I am hoping to try this will my thermamould that the lovely Julia passed onto me and maybe some hot glue, I will let you know how that turns out!
My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are "Girl Model Shoots New Hubby".....no comment!
So, if you fancy a legal snoop then pop over to the lovely Julia's blog.
