Welcome to the first WOYWW of May... anyone else feel this year is simply flying?! It's time for another desk-fest... Julia as always, hosts at The Stamping-Ground
you'll never guess what has finally arrived! yep, the last 4 distress oxides!
the next day I got to my desk and found a box on it with a note... saying Monica (my boss) thought I could do something with it.... she meant it as a joke... but it's fabulous!
You can see it has a sliding lid... it's lined with foam which I'll take out.. but how could you NOT like it!
Then, on Saturday, I was heading down the High Street on my way to my hairdressers.
The Library were selling off some sold stock, and I had time to rummage... I was looking for a foreign language book, but there were only dictionaries, which I didn't want.
I did see a book of lettering and illuminating
techniques... a snip at 90p (considering £1 is currently about $1.29)
Not decided yet if I'll just use loose pages for projects, or keep the book whole and do an altered book... either way, I have plans for it! Although, of course, if I do an altered book, I will have spare pages anyway... win win!
the music comes from a book of tuba music.
hmm.... wonder who could have donated that!!
so far, only infusions, dry brushed Fresco paint, crackle paste and gesso... now in the thinking stage!!
Hope you've enjoyed your snoop, see you at yours soon!
Oh, and I went to Kew on Monday.. pics here
