It's Wednesday! I know that comes as no surprise to you, but I woke up a day behind this morning and thus am late doing my What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday post! Linking up as usual at Julia's Stamping Ground. Since last Wednesday I have been having such a lot of fun in my craft room. Here is are a couple of results. I decided not to show the gathering number of backgrounds I have done for fear of boring you.
I think this one is so pretty, I added the paint over left over pieces of embossed card. I will probably add more to it later.
This collage was inspired by Mary Anne’s collages although I went in a completely different direction. I saw the picture of the bottles which I really liked, then I came across the parrot picture. Initially I was going to make them separate pages so I hope they count as 2 in the 100 day challenge!
This collage also inspired by Mary Anne and also completely different. I used a paper napkin for the background adding extra flowers as a second layer. Once the background was dry I drew around the inside of some cardboard packing circles with a watercolour crayon. Spreading the colour towards the centre. I added 3 different colours in all to give them that hard to grasp colour bubbles have. So “Bubbles in the garden”.
I am loving my new look craft room with handy storage. I have 9 art journals on the go - keeping them under my stone paperweight. This means I can go to to the next one while I am waiting for a layer to dry. A lot of my backgrounds have a layer of paper napkin glued down followed by a layer of paint. I have done a fair bit of fussy cutting in the evenings, I have these spring scissors which don’t hurt my hands the way ordinary scissors do.
My paperweight from collected stones, a couple need re-sticking, and new storage made by my husband for our grand daughter who has an attic bedroom with sloping ceiling.
Now for something completely different. I am gathering material for a journal with a Alice in Wonderland theme. This is my Alice, made from 3 Tuck images:
The other doll had better legs, still dark stockings, though lighter, but her head was creased! So my 100 day projects are going to be quite a mix. Although I am not numbering them I do need to keep count, so I will let you know the total when I have worked it out.
Finally my husband and I had our jabs last Saturday, I had a bad night feeling I was on fire and therefore really tired the next day, my husband was also tired.
Have a great week x Angela
