woyww- recycled junk art

On my desk is a little box covered in rubbish.  I continue to tinker with it until it is just right.  Such a satisfying feeling recycling junk until it finds another life.  This little box started out holding stationary then it was subjected to folk art and now it has all been covered by metal bits and pieces, glimmer mist, gesso, plastic, bling, gilding paste and the odd flower.

It must be the week for finding life in repurposing, recycling and sharing it with others.  The lovely Doone has sent me the most incredible upcycled Junk Key fob.  
There are so many layers and stories within this amazing piece of art.  I keep turning it around and finding something new, layer upon layer of texture all encased in resin.  It has flown across the world and arrived just as I was adding the last piece of "treasure" on my box.  

Time to stop by woyww and see what others have on their desk.

woyww - 30 cards and still going

A quick pic of the desk with left over bits from the card making exercise.  30 cards made and still going strong.  I have stopped stamping and moved onto cards using scrap paper.    Once I get sick of these I will switch over to another style.  As you can see from the card on the top shelf nothing too fancy.  It is waiting patiently while I decide what colour ink I will use for the sentiment.

Thank you everyone who left a comment last week..... left over bits and pieces go to April Story.  Please send me your addie and I will pop it in the post.    Now on to visit a few creative desks on woyww.

woyww - makings of a card

On this beautiful sunny Wednesday I have the beginnings of a card. I have been using the Darkroom Door "full bloom" stamps with distress inks for years and still love the effect.
A very simple card that is quick and easy to stamp out and get in the post.  This time I am making a few extras to donate to the local school fete and have around 20 cards in a box ready for the fete.  Now on to more serious business........
whenever I start a project I always come across bits and pieces in the craft room that I don't use. Some of the items have never been used and some are left over bits that I am ready to send to a new home.   If you would like a surprise bag of goodies leave a comment.   No need to become a follower or answer any questions. I will randomly pick a winner before the next woyww post.  Just like my simple card I am aiming for no frills simple candy.  Enjoy your week.
