Well it's Wednesday again! Where do the other days between Wednesdays go? On my desk this week is a few of the things I got at the weekend and something I made with them! I also got Tims yummy papers Crowded attic and the resist kraft papers!
A closer look! The little glass 'thing' has mould and pour on the top.(I took the photo while waiting for it to set) I will share later on when I have made something from it!
These are little 'buttons' made with polymer clay baking in my melt pot! (the lid is only off to take the pic!)
And after 'cooking' I painted them black and put rub n buff (silver ones) and Inca gold (gold ones) over to pick up the detail.
This the flower (cut from Tims Tattered florals die) from the glassine paper, I love the old look it give when it is 'screwed up'.
This is the tag I made from all the things above!

So what's on your desk this week? It you want to see more pop over to Julia's blog and have a nosey! It's great fun!!!

Wednesday again! The weeks are just flying by!
On my desk this week is my journal and some more of the little birds that seem to have taken over my life at the moment! (I wish I could remember where I got the inspiration for these little chaps from but I really can't, I looked at so many books, blogs, websites, magazines over the last few weeks when I was feeling really poorly and couldn't drag myself to my studio to actually make anything!)
My journal is not something I share readily with anyone but yesterday I did blog the entry I did (it has one of my little birdies on it).
In this photo my desk looks quite calm.

This one shows a different story! I am back to just a small space to 'work' in again, looks like I will be tidying up before I start another project!

A closer look at the little birdies!

A journal covered in K&Co paper over stamped with a Paper Artsy swirl in black Archival ink. A little birdie coloured in reds and oranges, a ribbon attached on the back cover to close the journal and a shrink birdie and some beads at the bottom of the ribbon.
If you would like to see more desks pop over to Julia's at the Stamping Ground. Happy WOYWW!
I would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has visited my blog this week!

If I were a song......

If I were a song I would be 'Blackbird' by The Beatles.
This song sums me up perfectly!
My eldest son has learnt to play it on the guitar just for me, (he played it for me on Sunday, this morning I heard it on 'Heartbeat', it seems everytime I hear it once I hear it several times, I think someone is trying to tell me something).
Everytime I hear it, it makes me smile, makes me sad or makes me cry. One day I WILL be able to 'mend my broken wings and learn to fly'!
So the song inspired me to do this page in my journal.
The background is black gesso swooshed on with an old credit card, dried and spritzed with a Tattered Angel bronze spray. The words I typed and printed. The white swirls are hand drawn with an Aquatone pencil as is the bird and crown.
Not a rubber stamp in sight!!!!
If you were a song which one would you be?

Hi WOYWWers! Not much been going on on my desk for the last couple of weeks, I have been feeling poorly, (sinus trouble and really bad migraines) but I am feeling much better and yesterday was the first day I felt like doing anything (shame it HAD to be sorting out and doing all the HW I hadn't been able to do).
The odd half hour I did sit at my desk I only managed a couple of things (none of them finished),
I did try a couple of image transfers (the skulls), stamped on a domino, and painted a few birds, oh and started a few ATC's but other than that nothing.

A close up of the pile of painted birds. I say painted they are coloured with Aquatone pencils and watered.

Dominoes, alcohol inked and stamped and the image transfered skull.

The skull domino and an atc with another image transfer skull.

A pile of unfinished atcs and a little book made from 1 sheet of 12x12 paper, instructions on Tim Holtz's blog (valentines book).
So that is it for this week, if you want to see more desks which are much more interesting than mine pop over to Julias Stamping Ground and feast your eyes on loads more!

Well it's Wednesday again so it is time for WOYWW! Pop over to Julia's to see what it is all about!
On my desk today is, well as you can see just a few un finished things that have been there a few weeks as I have to find my mojo again! It has gone awol! So another day of chores if I can't find it! (Any sugestions? All these chore days are getting me down!)
I usually just make a few background pages but I have so many I really need to do something with them!
Oh well, I hope you all have your mojos attached firmly to you and are creating wonderful art!
Hopefully I might have something to show next week!
