WOYWW

Yikes, it's Wednesday again...the weeks sure do fly by don't they? Today's desk is the one in my workshop, above the shop, where I create all the class samples. Linda and I are madly working on the next series of classes and here are the first two. The Melt Art one is finished but the canvas/metal/goopy/painty/stampy creation still needs a bit of tweaking. Closer shot of the Melt Art project.

The canvas thingy.


Oooh, I did a bit of a test spray of the Crafty Notions Spraypaques on a bit of our paper table cloth. Folded it over and let dry.....am I the only one that thinks that this looks like a butterfly?




Me thinks I need to either clean my heatgun or reapply another layer of alcohol inks.




And finally, my very new Ranger apron which Linda E. got fro me as a replacement for the very singed one!!!

Doone said...

Ah Mrs Brown you see a butterfly do you!?!

The Rorschach inkblot test is a psychological projective test in which a subject's interpretations of ten standard abstract designs are analyzed as a measure of emotional and intellectual functioning and integration. The test is named after Hermann Rorschach (1884-1922) who developed the inkblots, although he did not use them for personality analysis.

Don't look it will drive you crazy

That is an INCREDIBLY amazing heat gun! You should scrape the bits off and use them in a project!

Everyone else is saying how they wish they could attend your classes... I lived in Newport Pagnell for many years and moved to the US the year you opened your shop!!! Guess who's kicking herself now???

that melt art is to die for, may have to consider relocating up north, so I can come and visit or perhaps move in :)

Helen said...

Hmm, just come back for another look, see I didn't comment yesterday (Blame the cold!) Love the samples, stunning.
I can see a butterfly too - although, looking at the golf from St Andrews, maybe a waistcoat that John Daly would wear, as he goes for bright colours, lol. (sorry, you know I will watch any sport!!)

Julia Dunnit said...

I've no doubt that there's a deep reason that you see a butterfly and I do not, and I think it's safer (and cheaper) not to go there! Love your workshop projects, and yeah, clean the heat gun and re-do it in bright colours!!

Sunshine Girl said...

Great projects you making there - and I cant see a butterfly just a pair of footprints.

Anonymous said...

Great projects. When do you start workshops online. I think a lot of people are in need for those.
For now I go back to the blog and admire the pictures.
