 Hello peeps, I hope you enjoyed last weeks mammoth 5th anniversary desk swap?  I know I did. There were some fabulous desks and ATC swaps that took place and I have posted mine off so hopefully in the next week or so they will all be received. 

So on my desk this Wednesday is my half finished June pages for the 365 Journal challenge. I am a bit stuck what to decorate this months pages with so I am waiting for inspiration to strike!

Also I am experimenting with Sheena Douglass' faux leather technique.  I have lots of vegan friends so I thought a faux leather handmade journal would be a great Christmas gift.....but I do not own the spray she uses so I used all I had.....matt varnish....the bottom photo shows that this DOES NOT WORK!!  I will try over embossing it to see if that works!!

My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week...'Tourist Stuns Psychic Nurse' Obviously not a great psychic otherwise she would have seen it coming!!!!

Yep, really ugly fail on the faux leather technique.  It feels like leather and it is nice and strong...but I need to get a gloss varnish for next time!!

Oh well, its all about experimenting!
Happy crafting



  1. Well you really are early!! but Happy WOYWW(T) ! anyway. Hope you sort your faux leather technique. Helen (not on a list yet!)

  2. I stopped by early to visit and see your monthly calendar. Yours is SO much more colorful than mine. I seem to need an entire month to decorate mine because I try to use what is going on that month as fodder for inspiration. Of course, I still haven't gotten the hang of the calendar and I've played for nearly 3 1/2 years.

    Laughed at the psychic. These are always so clever and fun.

    Thanks again for the wonderful gifts you sent me. You have NO idea how grateful I am and how much I love your ATC and everything else you sent, including the awesome stamp cleaner pad. Bleubeard is still snuggling with it (grin).

    No number yet, but wanted to get an early start while Julia sleeps.

  3. Lol at the fail...it looks ok in the photo but I guess the look is wrong in reality! I think you are the Arch Craft Experimenter. I've never seen anyone try as much stuff as you - which impresses me as I'm rubbish at new stuff!
    Hugs, LLJ xxxx

  4. Happy Woyww, lady! Did I already ask for/get your address to send my ATC?

  6. Hello..other Kyla...lol. I love reading the "Man Bites Dog" things you post...they are so funny. Your June page looks very colorful and pretty so far. I hope you have better luck with the faux leather the next try. #43 Kyla @ Faerie Wings and Scrapbook Things
