What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday #229

Morning, still on my "crafty block" at the moment, so not a lot to show you this morning, just a few bits "in progress", the tree scene I created on Saturday during the "crafty day" with sisters, mom and friends, I wasn't very happy with the first attempt as I had a bit of a void whilst stamping the trees, although there were lots of suggestions on how to save it, I eventually gave up and tried again. I'll perhaps make it up into a card later.

The flowery pieces are from a stencil. I was just having a bit of a play with these, the one on the black card is gilded the middle one (close up below) is a gelli print and then I've also embossed on acetate using the stencil as well

Love this gelli print (although the picture isn't the best), I'm going to make a card up by adding the acetate piece over the top...we'll see how it turns out

Off to Julias blog to go and look at everyone else's desk.

Have a good week

  1. Lovely work Donna. The picture is a fine start and as you say, there's more to come with a new version.
    The stencilled work is really lovely - a great display of how we can use different techniques to make new effects with the same tools.
    Enjoy your week.

  4. Look really fab the stamped trees and gelli print, think the stamped acetate will finish up it nicely, you can colour with touch ups on back of acetate image if u want to add shadows or such, happy WOYWw, Shaz in Oz.x #16

  5. I'm rubbish at scenery type stamping..can't see the wood for the trees, as it were, so am super impressed that you persevered! Love the stencil, those flowers are really really you'll get your money's worth from that.
