Welcome to Crafting With Jack, the skies are blue (as long as I don’t look far left where there are some dark clouds!),bathe sun is shining and as I haven’t stepped outside yet, I can’t confirm the temperature:). I have been too busy getting ready for our caravan holiday, numerous calls to BT and typing for my neighbour, to do any crafting! WOYWW members are having a swap, so that’s my next project. As they say on The Voice programme - I am available to steal! Which basically means I would welcome a few partners. Having read the post before today’s WOYWW post, I see we have to add an asterisk when we link up to signify taking part. To save this post being a total flop, I have two vintage images to give away this week.
It's Wednesday, my don't the weeks fly by! A warm welcome to Crafting With Jack and What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - except I have no workdesk to show this week. Instead a chair where I have been doing collage and working on my laptop. We have had some lovely days sitting in the garden, believe it or not my husband brought out a blanket as I said I was cold!
First up the collage pages, very similar to last week except using a ruler I took off all the edges and also cut the pages up. i did all the pages in an A4 notebook. The picture in the centre is the back of each page which I tea dyed just to give a little colour.
I have also being doing some digital work editing vintage pieces. I removed the middle section, I thought they might make nice text boxes for journals etc.
Welcome to Crafting With Jack and What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. Just in case this is your first time here - in which case I say "Hello!" - Wednesday is the day we show off our desks, be they neat and tidy or a total pickle! then we go off and visit. We link up at Julia's Stamping Ground so come and have a look.
The bottom picture is a tube of mints, kindly opened by Dolly, who then took the wrapper and left pieces all over the place!
Welcome to Crafting With Jack and another What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. My finished Mystic Girl Painting, I didn't completely follow the tutorial, but you are not expected to.
Next I did some little watercolour squares. Several of our happy band of deskers have used tutorials from CeeCee on YouTube and it was next on my list after my painting. I have noticed, in tutorials, that when people use the little pans of paint they seem to have no difficulty in getting a good quantity of useable paint. I am not sure what make mine are, but I always have a problem with them. I have a set of Rare Earth watercolours waiting in the wings, but I shall persevere with the ones I have for a little longer. I did a practice sheet first and then tried out various pens. Doing these little squares seemed quite therapeutic and I am going to try some bigger areas to draw or stamp on.
Welcome to another Wednesday, another What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. Yesterday I sat outside with my husband and it felt lovely and warm. The weather though is about to change! This week I have made some ephemera, photographs 1 and 2, and finished my journal pages, 3 and 4.
Welcome to Crafting With Jack, spring is on its way here, and I can tell because we have frogspawn in the pond. There have been several nights of serenading frogs and now the amount of frogspawn is growing!
I have been doing a course with Ida Andersen and although I didn’t follow the course exactly here is my “Star Girl”.
I decided to sign up for her monthly course which gives you access to all her tutorials.
Yesterday I decided to make some pages for a junk journal with some pages from The Country Diary. They were pages without pictures and the middles were damaged getting them from the book. I trimmed one side so I would have a new middle line. I am finishing the pages off this morning.
My desk this morning, since I never know what I am going to need, everything comes out :)
Work in progress! I am linking up to Julia's Stamping Ground and then off to visit everyone else's desk. Thank you for calling, see you soon x
