Morning Crafters and dear WOYWW friends. Another week has flown by and I have been sadly absent from the Blogging World again. I've been up to my eyeballs in DT work and also scuttling outside to play in the garden every time the sun shone over the weekend. Well it is such a rarity, you have to make the most of it don't you?
I very nearly didn't share my desk this week as I had put everything away last night after finishing the last project but then my lovely DH came home with a new toy to play with so everything has come out again.
He uses uncompressed paper to make whatever it is he does at work and as he's always interested in my craft he wondered if I can use it with my inks and stuff so we have been experimenting this morning to see what it does and how it's different from plain ordinary card. I have to say I'm feelin the love. You can use it in all the same way as card but it looks and feels like fabric and inks on it are beautiful and soft.
The uncompressed paper is on the left and the card on the right. I spritzed both with water and dried them. I'd be interested to know what you think.
We've embossed it and die cut it so far and played with distress inks but I need to put it through it's paces a bit more yet.
So that's my desk today. I can't wait to get round to see what you've all been up too. I haven't done any blog hopping for a week so need to have a catch up.
By the way, if you want to see what we got up to on the DT retreat last week, Sheena has a photo on her blog.
Thanks for stopping by and if you want to join in the fun of WOYWW then pop over to see our lovely Desk Headmistress, Julia, HERE.
A couple of things
