woyww - blue canvas and atc

Starting on a steampunk atc and at this point just trimming the focal image.  Backgrounds all ready to go but I have plenty of time as the swap is not due until the end of October.  Plenty of time to fiddle around and over think the whole swap.

The blue bits and bobs canvas  is coming along, although in this photo it all looks a little skewif!! The canvas started with a stencilled background then layers of bits; watch parts, jewellery, washers, string, paper scraps, metal clips, pins, fabric flowers and moulded flowers.  I will let it sit for awhile before I start to work on the colours.   All in all a good week.  I wonder how other woyww's have managed this week? Check out Julia's desk

woyww - blue bits and bobs

A week certainly comes around quickly and what do I have to show?  The beginnings of new canvas in shades of blue, white and silver.  Nothing is glued down yet as I play around with the bits and bobs.

The inspiration for "blue bits and bobs" probably came from "Veronica Spictata" blooming in the garden.  Thanks to RosA (and google) I can now call her Veronica and learnt that it is the county flower of Montgomeryshire in the UK. Without the help of woyww's I would still be in the dark.  Off to visit Julia's world of woyww.

woyww a desk, card and flowers

The beginning of an art journal page which was then abandoned because I got side tracked by ribbons.

  I did try out the TH embossing folder added a smidge of distress inks, glimmermist and a touch of flowers on my first easel card.  All looks a bit brown in the pic when it really is all golden and shimmery!!
Finally, the triffid like flower that is currently flowering in the garden.  No idea what it is called but as I achieved so little at my desk this week I thought I would pretend I have been busy doing other things.

Now off to see the other woyww's...

Winter cast offs

The finished canvas complete with; 
 wire, washers, bread bag clips, string, plastic, knitting needles, old book paper scraps, lace, earings, watch parts and other assorted metal bits.

Such fun pulling it all together.

I tried adding some sprays of colour but, it just didn't feel right.  Painted over the colour with gesso which has left tiny drops still showing.

I have loved using all the bits and pieces that usually get chucked in the bin.

I will definitely do this again.  Perhaps a spring theme.

woyww - layouts

A fairly tidy desk as I had already packed things away once I had finished the LO and I only just remembered to take a pic for woyww.  One  completed layout is all that I have achieved this week.  Still plodding through photos from our holiday last year .... slow progress.  On the right a set of darkroom door stamps that I have mounted on cling foam, cut out and stored back in their tin.  I have left them out in the hope that I will use them!!

Hope your week has been more productive and now I am off to see what other  woyww's have been doing.
