 My desk tonight and I have managed to finish my co-joined ATC's for a swap

Here is my swap piece. I created lots of layers with Distress Stains, Tissue Tape, Stamping, Stencils, Die Cuts, and Graphic 45 images.

Canvas Progress

My canvas is coming along but I am not finished with it yet.
The chipboard house kits are fun to play with.

Wednesday 19 October 2011


I bought a canvas kit for a friend and on inspection when I got it home there was a tear in the canvas so I kept it and glued some book pages on with gel medium. When that dried I painted it with Gesso.
The next step was using my Broken China Distress Stain followed by Picket Fence.
It is drying while I plan my layout.
The Wednesday Dash is here so run to Julia's to view desks from all over the world and join in the madness.

Comedy Carpet Blackpool

The Comedy Carpet opened in Blackpool by Ken Dodd is Blackpool's answer to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I only took a few photos as there were so many people on it.

Where did the last week go as I cannot believe it is WOYWW day.
This was my desk this morning and I have been having a play with some new toys.
Have a great day and join Julia and all the other snoopers from around the world. 

I really need to sort Desk One
I used one layer from the pack and drew around the base layer on some white card. Cut that out then added some self adhesive foil tape. Next I ran that through the Cuttlebug using a Steampunk embossing folder and went over the whole thing with black alcohol ink. I glued all my stash on with Glossy Accents and decided to add a TH Swivel Clasp so it can be hung in my art room.
I love these Printer Trays.

Here  we are again for the usual Wednesday Work Desk snoop. 
I have finished a project that took me hours.
It will be on my Demo table at Port Sunny on  Saturday so if you are there you can inspect it more closely.
This example showcases my Alice Designs. It is very pink. I used Distress Inks to colour my flag tags and for the stamping. Both sides of the tags are decorated. It took real planning to get this right but I am very happy with it.

Some of my stash for sorting and if you have got this far shoot over to Julia's blog and see what everyone else has been up to today.

This was todays project at stamp club. My theme was childhood.
I made some antique wall paper with Cuttlebug embossing folders and Distress Inks. The little dollies were from a set belonging to my youngest daughter from the 1980's. I used some old lotto game pieces and spare items from my dolls houses including left over sticky back carpet.
The final stage was adding Tim Holtz Tissue tape and inking with Antique Linen.
