My desk as of late Tuesday afternoon, taken in the reflected light from the snow outside my window - enough now please, even Sorrel has had enough, she was shivering when I took her out for her walk yesterday morning.
I've been preparing for the next Vicky Stampers meeting in March when I'm doing a 'WORD' book. This will be the first workshop I've delivered so I'm starting my prep early so I don't mess up. I didn't have a 4inch letter stencil so used WordArt to creates the alphabet and spent yesterday afternoon cutting out the letters so I can use them as stencils. Have started a sample piece (Japan) and just about to get inky.
To the right is the concertina card Carol showed us at last weekend' club meeting - butterflies, again, love them. The card is decorated using the seragraph technique and chalk inks and gives a very pretty effect. You can find out how to do this over at Splitcoast Stampers where, if you didn't know, there are tons of brilliant tutorials.
One of the tutorials uses alcohol inks over embossed images on glossy card then a piece of plain card (uncoated) rather than the usual paper to iron off the EP. Wasn't keen on the AI's piece, bit vivid for me, but I loved the negative it gave on the plain card (bottom left). closer look here.
Better stop before you get bored but I want to share the bag I made to go with the LillyBo quilt. I passed the quilt on to Jozart on Saturday at our club meet but I hadn't started the bag. Finished yesterday and ready to go postal but the PO is busy on Tuesday (all the pensioners drawing out their money - says she who gets hers paid into the bank) so it will have to wait for a snowless morning. Anyway, enough rambling, here it is.
If you missed the quilt it is on my previous post here.
Plans for Wednesday? Why blog-hopping of course, starting with the person responsible for my big bum - Julia over at Stamping Ground, well she does encourage me to spend a lot of time sitting on it.
