Happy Wednesday everyone. It's the day of the week when we share and stare courtesy of the lovely Julia over at The Stamping Ground. so grab a seat and have a nosey around my desk this week.
Bottom right is deco book I am making with pages sent by members of my Yahoo group. I have three sets of pages already and the swap goes on for another three months so I thought I had better pull up my socks and get on with making the cover. You can see a close-up of the page here - link.
The book is sitting on a pile of washi papers from my (very large) stash as I have also been making a book to store my ribbons in - the red and black on on the left.
I am following the tutorial made by Jenniebellie on YouTube and the book is made out of an old cardboard box. I have had some of the washi for years and save every last tiny piece but am also lucky to have been given a load recently. My favourite is the piece of claret and gold sitting underneath the deco book, this paper is fabulous, soft just like fabric and so rich in gold, I have been saving it up for a 'special' project for about 6 years now
Hiding at the top are a couple of sheets of German scrap birds and butterfies that will be going in my altered book (don't tell Elizabeth but I'm a bit behind with my homework on that one).
Top left is a card I made this week, PaperArtsy stamps on a sprayed background and my favourite 'splodges' stamp embossed in gold. I love the colours on this one and here is a closer look.
Not sure how many desks I will be able to get round today as I am off on a jaunt to meet Neet and Jozarty and a couple more ladies. We are having lunch and a bit of a shop in Manchester - crafty of course and I'm looking forward to it.
