Welcome to May and Wednesday - time for another WOYWW . The day of the week when we meet up at Julia's and share our crafty spaces
Unbelievably we're 2 weeks away from our 12th anniversary - and we're planning an atc swap again this year - should have remembered that at the weekend and made some!!
anyway, till then, it's desk time..
I enabled again.... more Dina Wakley stuff....
the new release items will be sent when Art From The Heart get them in stock...early May they're expected... watch this space!
so forgetting to think about atcs, I had some play time in my new 6x6 inch journal
forgot to photograph in daylight too so the colours are off
starting page, went wrong - or at least I didn't like how it started, so I covered it all in black gesso ad sprayed on some of the new pastel gloss sprays
they don't look especially glossy over the black gesso, but I quite like the look.
I also sprayed some of the pastel colours on watercolour paper which also dulled the gloss down, and stamped some of the "ledger girls" stamp set on it and fussy cut tem.
then I wanted to try the ruby paint - it's a bit darker than shown here, due to the poor living room light bulb!
the patterns are some of Dina's collage tissue sheets torn and stuck down before applying colour
a work in progress with no clear idea where the pages are going.
Saturday saw me leaving home mega-early for my Kew entry slot - you may remember from previous years I love to go at 8am when they allow this between May and September for members, (still have to pre-book a time slot) and Saturday was the first of them.
Some of you saw the sneak peeks on facebook - for the rest of you - the blog is here
new installation for the summer
the blossom has been spectacular this year
That's it for me - will be along shortly to see your workspace.
