WOYWW

Wow the weeks certainly fly by fast don't they? I can't believe it's Wednesday already and we are spying on each others crafty spaces once again. I have a teeny tiny confession though....this is not actually how my desk looks today. This is how my desk looked last week as I knew there would be nothing in my desk today as I had to move all the furniture out of the room to have the new carpet fitted following the fire. Anyway, back to the matter of what was actually on my desk or should I say desks, most definitely in the plural as this little project ended up on three desks plus the floor! I am having a lot and I mean A LOT of fun, messing around with my best friend Big Shot Bruce, Paperartsy and Tim's dies and all types of fabric. I have been messing around spraying calico with Crafty Notions sprays, sticking it to card, sticking canvas to card then die cutting, putting netting between tissue paper and die cutting that. In fact if it stands still long enough, it will probably end up going through Big Shot Bruce!!!
So here's some fabric in the drying stages.

The discarded heap of fabric on the floor.


Oooo, my cold cuppa tea.......I got so engrossed, yet another cup got cold!



Paperartsy grunge flower dies.


The ever growing basket of cut flowers.

A close up of some of my hand coloured fabric....yum, yum!


And a few finished flowers.



This one is my favourite, shame that the colours of the mica are not showing up in this pic but my saving grace is that my chocolate hob nob still looks as yummy as it was that day!!!



So if you would like to join in the WOYWW fun, click here to transport you over to Julia's blog where all will be explained.
Take care, Lin x
