Every week that I join in Julia's amazing desk journey/snoop I see all these fantastically tidy desks and if there is such a thing as re-incarnation then next time that will be me - TIDY CRAFTER! Well that's my aim but more my luck to come back as a cockroach. Not that I have anything against cockroaches, all God's creatures so entitled to be here, just not in my eyesight please, I would rather have pretty butterflies flittering here and there splashing a bit of paint around.....
Enough rambling, you want to see my desk, or I hope you do, so here it is.
It's been like this since Sunday afternoon, when I get stuck, a frequent thing, just shut the door and walk away for a couple of days. Keep creeping back in hoping to find a bit of inspiration or, fingers crossed, that the craft fairies will have been in overnight to help, no such luck.
I'm trying to do a shadowbox thingy (technical term) for my Great-Niece's birthday on the 15th. Always make the two girls something, even though they are 26 and 22 next birthdays. Emma loves green and brown so I started there spraying flowers, painting, cutting and alcohol inking metal charms. Not quite sure which direction this will take so I had a play around 'arranging' (very loose term) the bits in the frame.
Think the hand will have to go, and the background needs some colour, and I need some texture, and a bit more lime green at the top, and maybe the picture needs to be a little bigger, but apart from that.....
Have to get it finished this week as we are away next week, taking the campervan to Lincolnshire, Andy will be trying to get me to go to all the old Second World War airfields and I will be trying to find craft shops so lots of fun all round.
Happy WOYWW, see you on the tour.
