 Hello peeps, have you had a good week?  I hope so.  

This Wednesday on my desk are a few new goodies.  I rarely buy craft stash these days (as I have a room full of stuff) but Sunday saw me go to a small craft show where I bought a few goodies. 
 On my shopping list was spray and shine (as I have tried other ways to replicate the shine in Sheena Douglass' brilliant fake leather with no success), some glossy accents (as I am nearly out), a sizzix bigz die of a fob watch (I like these dies as I can cut leather out of them so I can easily make this into a circle) which was only £6 and also some great stamps which were only £3.99-bargains. 

 I also bought 2 colours of brusho a waterbased paint I have considered buying for a couple of years since I saw it demo'd at the NEC but had only seen the sets, whereas these were only £1.40 each so more affordable to try a new product.

 Last week I showed you a new photo printing kit I bought and this is the first t shirt I made from it

The idea is that you choose a digital image and create a negative which you print out on special film.  I chose a picture I took at night of the wheel in London.  You then apply the light sensitive dye to the fabric (in this case I used a black dye) then place the negative over and expose it to the sun for about 15 mins...wash it out and voila!  I am loving this idea and am thinking I would like to make cushions with this image on...ooh, once again SO many ideas but so little spare time!

My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week....'Blonde Wife Blames Naked Tourist',,,,ooeer missus....keep your eyes out if you are in a tourist area this week!!

If you fancy a legal snoop at desks across the globe then feel free to join us over at the lovely Julia's blog (link over on the right).

Happy Crafting

Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #26 xx

  9. Your t-shirt came out really great. That would be interesting to do for quilt blocks as well.

    I didn't even notice those cards on the desk until you mentioned them, too funny!

    Happy Woyww,

  10. That tee shirt is totally awesome! Love it. I must look into this more...very interesting!

    We probably all have too many goodies in our crafty areas but sometimes more of a good thing is a better thing. (at least that is what I think when I shop!)

    Hugs, Kathy Jo #41

  11. Hi Kyla, as far as I can see you've mainly replaced spent items which is allowed! So the stamps and the die just dropped into your basket too but what else could you do ... the stamps were a bargain and that die is going to make cutting leather so much easier. And, of course, every one of these purchases is going to help you use up the stash you already own. See, it's so easy to justify any craft purchase :) Have a great week. Elizabeth x #62

  12. Forgot to say, the t-shirt is absolutely fabulous.

  13. Great T shirt, Kyla, and that sounds like a load of bargain goodies to me. Enjoy playing, Chris # 29

  14. great goodies and love the T shirt. Happy WOYWW Anne x #32

  15. I love that lighthouse stamp set! For £3.99 it's a bargain! Zsuzsa #64

  16. Ooh...Jan's in a touristy area this end of the week, and she's kinda blonde......! Oooeeer....!
    I LOVE the sun printing t shirt...and a fab photo...don't think I really understand a word of it, but hey.

  17. Hi Kyla, love the T-Shirt and what a bargain you got with the stamps. You are such a good girl when it comes to buying or not buying Lol!
    Have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x 35

  18. Hello Kyla, Love the t-Shirt but I think I am sounding like a cracked record and as I am writing this see that everyone else has written it too. So honestly it must be good. Nice set of stamps too. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week..
