WOYWW #70 - One page almost down
in my Steampunk Mini Envelope project.
I made a grungepaper rose (actually the first one I have ever made .... don't let it be said that I lag behind the trends LOL!) I used the smallest Paper Artsy Gunge Paper flower dye, coloured with Walnut Stain, then put on a coat of Lime Green Shimmerz paint and stamped one of the Hot Pick Extras flowers stamps ~I have to admit to still having trouble with lining these beggars up, which is a shame as I love the images. I also cut off one of the tiny stamp images from the G45 paper, distressed it with my always present Walnut Stain Distress Ink and stapled on. I can see that these stamps will be used on so much, I love them.
The left hand side shot of the desk my scrummy new G45 Steampunk Debutante 8x8 pack that came from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie. There were also some lovely back gems in the envelope, and I think I will pop some on the gear centres later on. Also my Making Memories trimmer, which is something else that is never very far from my desk.
As usual you will see in the bottom picture .... my workdesk remains in a right old state ~despite the fact that I mentioned yesterday I was going to tidy it up!
Many, many thanks to everyone for all the lovely comments last week (sadly I didn't have time to visit many desks as too busy doing paperwork, but I will try this week to do more).
One last thing, I have a post pinned at the top of the blog (which will disappear shortly), please comment on it if you haven't already as one person will be chosen at random to get some blog candy.
Right, now I will head off over to Queen of Craft Desk Keepers, the lovely Miss Julia to see if I can get through a few more desks this week.
