Have done a little work on my tea box but not as much as I hoped and I'm not 100% happy with it. One thing about paint, you can always sand it off and start again.
It isn't the paint that is the problem but the stamped tissue, unlike Eric and Ernie's 'wig' joke, you can see the join - will have to see what happens when it is fully dry and will have to come up with a cunning plan to disguise it.
Any how here is my desk this week.
You can see the various pots of paint and the archival ink pad I have used and the lovely Crafty Individuals tree stamps, also the gessoed and painted German scrap below the box ready for attaching.
And if the box doesn't work out as I hoped I can always hide it away for a weeks or so and get cracking on the tin I have prepared (above the box). It is one of Mr B's cigar tins (bad habit!) and I'm going to make a concertina book to put inside. This one is for a birthday as I always try to do something different for both my Great-niece's birthdays - and for Christmas when they always have chocolate coins in some sort of container or other. They are 23 and 19 now but still love to search out the coins at the bottom of their present bags.
I managed to get round all the WOYWWers last week and think Julia of Stamping Ground came up with a whizz of an idea when she started WOYWW, so grateful for introducing me to so many talented, funny and friendly crafters.
Hope you have enjoyed another peek at my desk this week.
