This may be my last WOYWW post before my hols, depends on how organised I am next week. We are off to sunny Somerset next Thursday with StepD and Grandchildren and the weather forecast this morning was for a shift in the Gulf Stream which may bring warmer, drier weather on Tuesday. I hope they are right as the prospect of a rainy holiday with three children is not ideal. Eee lass, in my day we were out in all weathers with a plastic mac and a pair of wellies. My favourite game was 'How deep is that puddle' which involved standing in as deep a puddle as you could find and hoping it didn't wash over the top of your wellies - such fun, and didn't cost a penny.
Also fun is the weekly tour round desks organised by Julia of The Stamping Ground each Wednesday, and as today is Wednesday, here is my desk.
Working on journal pages for the monthly swap I'm in so on my desk are spray inks, Archival ink pad, pens, stamps, hard stencils and the finished pages. The theme is 'things you like' so this month I picked 'literature. I sprayed watercolour paper with walnut inks in blue and brown, added lots of water and sprayed through a stencil - not one of the new ones but a set I bought for work a long time ago.
Here's a closer look at the pages,
and at my hands when I had finished.
Anyone know how to get walnut ink off hands?
(Note to self 'Wear gloves when doing mucky jobs')
Forgot to say the cardboard box contains a little present to myself to take on my hols. I was inspired by the 'dumfling' sisters (Twiglet and Wipso) to try my hand at felting so I bought a starter kit. May not show you my attempts at this craft - depends on how carp they are, but at least I will have fun.
Just seen that my text now has a white background, how did that happen? Will try to fix it later.
