Hi folks, I know it's been an absolute age since I took part in WOYWW, but I'm here again this week to try and catch up, visit some desks and have a nosey around.
I'm working in the extension today, not my craft room, as the light is so much better in here. My Husband grudgingly calls this 'Craft Room No. 2' as I spend so much time in here, and today, it's looking very tidy!
Last night we were working with Stampbord, and did a mosaic themed card. We are having a great term, covering lots of new techniques for them, and hopefully they are enjoying themselves. We used some stamps from Chocolate Baroque, creating a little mosaic strip using skinny masking tape. We then coloured three pieces of Stampbord, taped them together on the reverse temporarily, and stamped the image, before seperating them to put on the card. The background was made by applying Distress inks to a large block, and spritzing with water, before plonking it on the card, (technical term there!).
I love it, and it is ripe to be altered too! The drawers all come out, so I can set them out on the table if I want to. I love the segments as well, so that the pencils are contained within smaller areas. I am a bit OCD about my colour groups, so this is just perfect for me.
Don't forget to hop over to Julia's Desk to see what everyone else is getting up to on this fine, sunny Wednesday, thanks for stopping by, xx
