... and Arabesque .... on this WOYWW
Actually, it was a long time ago I did that kind of thing, now my
arabesque work is limited solely to the crafting work desk ... I will be
50 in a few days time after all!!
This Crafters Workshop template is simply stunning ..... who knew and
has been keep it a secret? Rob has just seen it hanging up and even
said that the template itself was pretty.
I've had it for quite a while and only just got around to using it - the
idea was that the roses would go all over the top, and therefore the
texture paste a la Arabesque was just there to ground them and show
through any small gaps .... but it has been suggested by Guy (and I tend
to agree) that it would be a shame to cover most of it up.
Super easy to do: I just masked off the lace (would have been easier to
do before I put that on hey) and then held the template in place while I
spread on the texture paste with a palette knife and then sprinkled on
first Iridescent fine glitter and them some pale green fine glitter.
Once it's completely dry I will try to place the roses - maybe going for
5 on top and perhaps add a line of the same template around the edges in
Happy WOYWWone and all - now head off to Fair Queen Julia's crafting kingdom and catch up with all the other fabulous WOYWW desks.
PS: only 4 more sleeps until Jonnie Big Shot Pro is allowed out of his
box - yay!!!
PPS: a big woop woop for Hels, hope you caught her appearances on Create & Craft today, what a surprise I had no idea she was on .... saw a bit and recorded the rest .... the girl did good.
