Evening lovely Crafters. Two posts in two days, wonders will never cease.
I've been AWOL from WOYWW for several weeks but was determined to join in this week. I've been missing my weekly fix of nosiness. If you're not sure what I'm wittering on about, pop over to see Julia at Stamping Ground and all will become clear.
Here is my desk as I left it last night. Nothing has changed today because I've been out on a school trip to RHS Harlow Carr with DD's class, pond dipping and running round a meadow with an insect net. Great fun!! It's absolutely amazing what is all around us that we never even see.
Anyway, back to the desk. My friend asked me if I could make her a bookmark and just said she liked purple. My first attempt was using a Kanban set of birds and I decided yesterday to make a more arty one with the TH Umbrella Man so that she had a choice. The second bookmark has just been gessoed and is waiting for it's coat of Cosmic Shimmer glitter paint before being decorated.
You can also see my books of clear stamps in their handmade covers ready for some quick thank you cards that need making and also hiding in the corner two, yes two, boxes of delicious Thorntons choccies, my Easter eggs!!
I can report back that my friend chose the bird bookmark and here is a close up of the front and back. I stamped and clear embossed the images onto Grungeboard and then painted them with H2o paint before rubbing the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope your week is going well so far. We are over half way to the weekend yet again!!
