woyww bits and pieces

The usual things on my desk; another canvas,  primed and already starting to add layers of glimmermist.  My trusty kindle recharging on the right.  Computer no longer on the desk but finally moved onto its own desk.  The desk courtesy of the sweet teenager who would prefer a makeup table with mirrors rather than a computer desk!  She assures me she will spend more time with me if the computer desk is in my room.

Off to see julia's wonderful world of woyww.

woyww butterfly canvas and a journal

The finished butterfly canvas was well received by the little owner.  All the butterflies are attached to a piece of soft white tule and edged with glimmerglaze.  I am considering making another canvas for the little owners friend.

Now for something really inspiring have a look at this .....
The most divine journal from Donna.  One thank you is really not enough to let Donna know how thrilled I am to have this beautiful journal.

Off to see all the other desks at Julia's

Thank you Donna


Thank you, Donna for the most gorgeous, beautiful art journal.  

It  arrived in my hot little hands yesterday.  Gasp .... it is even more beautiful then when I first saw Donna creating mosh 1 almost 2 months ago.  It is full of vellum/ butterfly paper, old book text, watercolour paper, journaling notes, tags and pockets...... Beautiful from front to back.  Click on Doone and the video instructions are on her mojo tutes.   Not only can you see how she created this divine journal but, she has 10 different mosh tutes showing how to create a whole range of stunning books.  

"It's a donna thing" ...... how lucky am I?

woyww - progress of sorts

Still working at night and continuing to play around with the butterfly canvas.  All the butterflies were stamped with black ink and embossed on glimmermist papers.  Cutting them out was a pain.
A closer shot to show the gesso/stencil background.  As per usual the glimmermist doesn't really show in the photo.  Slow progress .... but, happy with the results so far.  Although I think too many butterflies in this shot and will continue to play around with odd numbers next.  What do others think?  I am off to visit Julia  and get a dose inspiration.

woyww late at night

A little dark and dingy but that's what happens when you try to do some stamping, embossing and painting late at night.  I am working on a butterfly canvas for a friend and have only just started.  Still a long way to go and hopefully I will remember to post some progress pics.
Final post is a card I made while I had the stamps and distress inks on the desk.  I made a batch of cards using the watercolour stamping technique and the darkroom door stamps.  I always love the effect.

Off to peek at what all the other woyww have been doing lately.
