WOYWW 321

Welcome to another WOYWW .. don't they come round fast?!
I seem to be going through a phase of lack of crafting energy lately, despite the Crazy Bird dies... it took me 3 days to get round to cutting them...
some of you saw the journal page that resulted but in case not ...












I've recently taken part in a "tissue swap" where a group of us decorated a sheet of tissue and swapped them.
these are mine, now I just need to think of something clever to do with them!!


got some new pens too, Fude Ball pens, we used them at the James Sharp weekend I went on recently and tracked some down (good old Amazon!) they arrived last week but I forgot to tell you... they write really well, if you're interested!!

Anyone off to the Stamperama show in Stevenage on Sunday?  I'm really looking forward to it..
no doubt there'll be shopping to share next week.. if not sooner!
Happy desk hopping, catch you all soon!

A tissue swap, sounds good, and the tissue you made looks wonderful!
I think it would look great in a collage.
Happy WOYWW!

I know what you mean, I dont know where those weeks go, mine are going faster than yours I am sure lol. That is an interesting concept of a swap

The decorated tissue looks fabulous! I wonder what you will do with it? Those bird dies are sort of growing on me (and I didn't much care for them when I first saw them).
The main problem with the stash is that I am forever encroaching on more and more of every room in the house, which, big as it is, is still a finite space :)

Great journal page Helen. The birds are lovely . I've just brought the crazy birds stamps & hoping to get playing with them at the end of the week if all goes to plan. Happy woyww jill #11

That tissue paper looks really cool with the TH birds all over. I use tissue paper a lot for collages after printing on the gelli plate.
Thanks for your early visit!

Hi Helen I love the idea of a tissue swop although I have never tried to stamp on a piece. I will give it a go and let you know how I get on. I love your birds too!

I love the crazy birds, but didn't know they had dies, too! And I have never heard of decorating and swaping tissue. I learn something new every Wednesday! #18

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Oh I know what you mean about finding a pen that writes really well! I love it when a pen flows nicely and the writing just loops out :-) especially good when there's a gazillion Christmas cards to write, lol!!
Come back, Helen's Mojo, we need you!!

Such gorgeous tissues - what a great idea a tissue swap is - nice and light if you had to post it too. x Jo

My name is Cindy said...

A tissue swap? Now that's a good one, but if too nice I wouldn't want to use them! Not doing much too 'creative' at the mo - just seem to have lots of boring commissions and duty crafting to do, although helping my son with his star wars costume was fun. You always have to tempt us with something but I refuse to go and check out amazon......Happy WOYWW Cindy x

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Helen, loving you TH bird journal page, very cute - I fancy those birds.Hope you find some mojo it does hit us all at times. Thanks for dropping by my desk RobynO#15

Barb said...

The stamped tissue paper looks lovely. I've only used it for decorating candles for Christmas. I've not heard of the Fude Ball pens so that's one to check out. Happy woyww Barb#33 x

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Helen, funnily enough, I've been watching You Tube journalling videos by a guy called Mike Deakin, and he uses those Fude ball pens all the time, and really raves about them. Love the Crazy Birds, should get my die set in a day or two. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #7 xx

Angela Radford said...

Tilly Tea Dance said...

Love the idea of a tissue swap! I wonder if there is a similar swappage for needle-felters!

catiecuddles said...

I love the birds... And the tissue swap sounds interesting. No idea what I would do with the resulting tissue though.
Happy WOYWW!
