WOYWW 465

May!!! don't get me started..  2018 is running away with us.. and once again it's time to report for desk sharing with Julia and the gang at the Stamping-Ground 

For once I don't have any new goodies to share... not sure what went wrong there!!

 aerial view this week  a couple of journals on the go - the one on the mat is the France Papillon ALAD challenge for her facebook group

the square one to the left is my fun one...

close up... glass bead gel added to my gesso'd circles and some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays. (dripped, not sprayed)










I am looking forward to a long Bank Holiday weekend and a trip to Kew - early morning openings for members have started again, so I will be there at 8am when you're probably all still tucked up in bed

I am also hopefully looking forward to some crafting time too.

Your more on the ball than me this morning Helen, I thought I was seeing double with my name and I was right hee hee!! I've not tried the bead gel as I tend to mix my own, doesn't it look fab with those drips!
Enjoy your bank holiday & fingers crossed for good weather.

Morning Helen. Well, we are in for some fun with the numbers and finding folks this week... Love the drips - a great change from spray shapes! I'll be up with you - not heading for Kew, but for the Midlands - my brother's surprise silver wedding party!!! A long drive to get there. Have a great visit when you arrive good and early - hope it's fine and sunny - so many more plants coming open now - and I even saw my first house martin this week.
Take care. God bless.
Margaret #2 this week - 31?? on the list

I’ve just read Jans comment and checked back....I’ve gone from 41 to 11....I can live with that if only age was the same 😂😂😂😂
Love the pages for this week.

Need to look up 'bead gel' as I haven't a clue what it is. I must go to more shows and see things! Surprised you didn't comment on Antonis coming to W London - thought it might be close'ish for you.
Love your journal pages - gosh, I only have two on the go at once - that is why my Dyary went awol (couldn't cope with three of them) now I am booked for a workshop with Dyan in summer and a new journal will be started - watch my space LOL
Hugs, Neet (disappointed at no new stash from you - only joking) xx

StampinCarol said...

Yep, this year is just going by too fast! Next month we attend graduations! Oh my! Bead gel sounds interesting, guess I'll have to look it up to see what it is as your pages look so cool! Have a great week!

Looking good as always - well how restrained have you been this week missus!! Mind you, you have reminded me that I have a whole set of Lindy's that I haven't even activated yet - plus EPs and probably micas as well. Oops, must have had those at least a year! Thanks for your earlier visit! I may be up at 8 on Sat, but I won't be out at that time! Have a goodf w/e. Cindy

Ooh, yum - the beady circles are fabulous with the drippy inks pouring out of the bottom - I look forward to seeing what next for this page - it's already lovely. Hope you enjoy the newly opened Temperate House at Kew - saw the photos in the Guardian - it looks amazing.
