Good morning all, only 3 days and I finish from work for a week and a bit, can't wait, I may even get to do some crafting! Not going on holiday, just "pottering" at home, although we have booked a holiday for later in the year, off to Appledore in Devon, never been before but I have it on good authority that its lovely and very dog friendly.
Anyway for my desk this week I have been playing so there are a few shots of various parts of my desks with messy bits on them taken during the evening.
This first one is using my Pebeo Moon paints (they sneaked into the shot of last weeks desk), I've just added them to a flower I die cut. Do you like the glass cutting mat? Found it in my utility room, bought it ages ago for baking, however its so big, it is too hard to handle, but found a better use for it....
This second shot is all the background bits I was playing with, the bright green, red and orange one is alcohol inks, as for the one on the left and the blue/silver one I don't think you'd ever guess what its made of, particularly if you could feel it, its very textured, give up yet?....read on and I may tell you
I was going to use the alcohol ink background for a card and stamp over it, but then I decided to make this one instead
And now, how I made it, but first - did any of you watch Sue Wilson on C & C where she demonstrated a background technique using cosmic shimmer pearl glue? Well this is what this was suppose to be, however, when I was squeezing the glue pot, the lid fell off and the glue went everywhere, so I used my palette knife to spread it about a bit, then when dry added alcohol inks. It looks great "in the flesh" as it is very textured. Then I just did my usual acetate with a sentiment on it.
Thanks for visiting, off to Julias blog to look at the other desks
Bye for now
