Welcome to Crafting With Jack and What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday. To celebrate the 13th Anniversary of WOYWW we are having an ATC swap with the theme “connections”. I couldn’t seem to get to grips with the theme at ATC size. I did think of doing a master board but, believe it or not, a simple A4 piece of card was not among my caravan crafts. I had picked up a free magazine from Tesco, so I went through that, cutting out letters till I had the letters to “connections” multiple times. I did choose letters in colour, but decided I didn’t like them so I had to look some more! I actually had ATC’s ready to use, but I didn’t feel the letters worked on the backgrounds and when I saw a roll of wrapping paper in the Co-op, I decided on that. I decided to treat the letters as part of the background and embellished with some diecuts. I thought the blue shade worked well.

Welcome to Crafting With Jack and another What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, hosted by the lovely Julia at Stamping Ground. You are very welcome to join the happy band simple by linking up your post too.
Frustration has been the name of the game this week. Still waiting for Dewalt to get back to me regarding the £60 battery we bought for our son, which after 4 months stopped charging! My old Iphone refused to erase all data yesterday and I contacted Apple this morning and the person kept trying something different until we had success! Now I have to transfer my husband's data to my old phone and it's stuck on 2 minutes left! Nothing is simple these days and is rather taking the pleasure out of my new phone.
Enough of that - we are getting the caravan ready for our holiday and I have been sorting out my crafting stuff deciding what to take.
I have been trying to finish a junk journal, the basics of which cane be seen here:
I used envelopes for the main construction along with mulberry paper and free pages from magazines. You can see some embossed paper which is going in and the cover which is plain at the moment.
My craft below is where all this frenetic activity is going on.

Another digital art piece from three Gecko Galz images. Of course then I realized I had stacks to show (relax -not showing it all!). Remember the stamping I was doing last week?

Welcome to Crafting With Jack and What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday, today’s the day we can go have a peek into other craft rooms and see what people have been up to. No need to have a tidy up, we all know what state the craft room can get into. Mine is no exception! I have done some digital designing. Above is the first of four ATC's made for Gecko Galz Papercrafting challenges on Facebook and also on their blog. I also have been going though my stamps - mostly free ones from magazines. They are all on A4 laminated card and I simply inked up the whole sheet of stamps, printed them out and rinsed them under the tap. After having a look at the printed sheet I picked out the ones I didn’t want putting them in a bag for giving away and rearranged the remaining stamps. So far I have got 4 empty A4 sheets. I scanned all the printed sheets, thinking I may use them that way too.
This is my desk, you can see the latest printed sheet. I have got about 6 A4 sheets left to do. Some of the print outs were not very good, but good enough for me to see what they were like.
Yesterday I had a trip out with my sister to Abakhan. I got some lovely bits and pieces some unusual pieces like the dried bark, beautiful ribbon that I only had half a metre of at £4.50 metre. Some metal rings for trying out weaving and some fabric. I bought some gold flecked twine at 8p metre. I was thinking of buying the reel, but that meant the whole lot (approx 67 metres) being measured and then wound back up. So I just bought 10 metres!
They had several different patterned trims there which were just gorgeous. The little applique flower is to go on a scarf that was a present and somehow I managed to cut a hole in whilst I was cutting out.
I am linking up at Julia’s Stamping Ground as usual, wishing you a great week x
