Hello fellow deskers - another Wednesday already.. The day of the week we gather at Julia's Stamping-Ground for WOYWW desk sharing day.
I've had a splurge on buying new goodies lately, and have had 3 deliveries since we last met!
first up were the Dina stencils, collage tissue pack and chipboard shapes that just missed it for last week
then the new ink pad and distress sprays in the new colour - Villainous Potion - such a gorgeous deep purple. can't wait to try this out! (I held out for a day before ordering them!)
and finally some new Paperartsy goodies - the Lynne Perrella and Seth Apter stamps were launched last week and the stencil by Tracy Scott was from the previous launch that I resisted (at the time!)
writing this Tuesday evening, an email alert has just flashed up on the screen to tell me my parcel will be delivered today.... yes, about 10 hours ago!! They normally arrive before the post!
so, lots of goodies to play with.
At the weekend I had a bit of a play with one of the Dina stencils - the circle mosaic which is just gorgeous. In honour of the new distress inks on the way (at the time) I used distress inks in my journal - on one of the cotton rag pages in the Dina journal
I used some of my favourite, slightly muted colours - I can't remember all the colours now - and then stencilled one of the flowers across the spread.
Added a collage tissue face - intend to doodle on this to enhance it a bit - added some splatters and some cut up collage tissue phrase which I then muted with gesso.
Saturday's trip to Kew
was fabulous - I spent half an hour in the Zadok Ben-David exhibition taking close ups - lots of pics on the blog and ages outside enjoying the rich autumn colours - my favourite time of year I think
this is one of my favourite autumn sights!
the detail is just exquisite
Sadly the forecast for this coming weekend is wet, so I think I'll maybe not spend so long outside!
That's it from me - not planning on new goodies next week, maybe I'll have used some of this week's! Happy WOYWW and I'll see you soon.
