WOYWW 65

Yay it Wednesday again and time for another splash of  WOYWWThis was my desk last night, I decided to show WIP by taking two shots, first is mask in place with liberal spray of Glimmer mists in Frost, Pink Bubblegum and Rum Raisin, second shot shows mask has been removed and I have endeavoured to get reverse mask effect onto spare card, think it lost something in translation !!!!!

This is my OH anniversary card, 22 years on friday, doesnt seem like 1, ROFL . . .   Decided to do two puzzle pieces fitting together on gatefold card, (2 pieces of the same puzzle.. aaah . .  you are allowed to make loud gagging sounds now, LOL)Then decided to add some random lettering and more random leaf vines, forgot to mention put music paper on puzzle pieces sprayed with Dyan Original Ink sprays and distressed with some DI (pumice stone) and then decided to clear emboss a Tim stamp, doesnt show up brilliant and expect OH will never notice, but I made the effort.

This is the finished card, put prev photo on cos showed up detail better, final bits were some Enamel Accents in black.  So that was last night quite industrious I thought,This last pic is an altered thimble display case that I made last week, glued fabric samples that I picked up from M& S (ok sort of stole  :(  ) onto back then pin tacked together after painting with various pinky colours and then distressing with lots of bits to get rid of all the pinkness (should miss out the middle man and paint it the colour I want to begin with)  but what would be the fun in that LOL.

BTW think I am going to enter Craft Stamper Stamper of the Year, Altered artist with my Jewellery box, which I am still working on, but it is coming along, does anyone know if its ok to have blogged it unfinished or not?, or does it have to have been unseen. . .

Anyways thank you all for visiting and leaving such lovely comments, I am sorry I dont get around to many each week, but I do try to visit different sites each week,

Nice work, but I'm afraid I can't help with your Stamper of the Year question! Good luck with that though....

Aw, Happy Anniversary. Hope your other half is taking you somewhere special.

I always love your desk Siobhan, I love that you have "on going" projects so that we can see how it all comes together.

Okay, I've stopped gagging now, lol, but that aside, it's a great idea to use the jigsaw pieces. One of my reps told me the best card he'd ever seen was two puzzle pieces together with 'Made for Each Other' written on it - cool idea. TFS. Happy WOYWW! Cath in the UK x

hahahhahhaha

a free stick with the 199$ toaster from QVC

hhhhhaaaahhhh came via your profile - forgive the dismissive attitude to your truely stunning blog today.....

hahhaha toaster ahahhhhhaaa qvc heee hee hee

Basics?

graphite value range

colour theory - the 'wheel' - complimentaries, primarys - working with just six and mixing the rest - warm and cool - push pull - hues and tones

i go MAD at my son for using the MAC and forgeting the fine art skills - I say - do an hour for real - then photochop...

Back to basics = pencil + paper

and a few good pigments

remembering What Art Is...god i am an old grumpy woman - going back to your profile for another LArf...

Dx

PS I recommend the Suzi Blu courses - not for everyone But I Love 'Em if you love the idea of making your Own Art - then Do It- as She would say - You Are an Artist Already....I guess I feel a simliar regard for her as some do about Lord Tim of Holtz - you pays your money you takes your chance...

That's a really interesting card Siobhan, I've never entered the really inky and messy realm yet, I might get a spot of ink on my crafting mat and then I'd faint, lol!! Love the altered thimble holder too.

Hugs

Can't help you with the jewelry box, but really like the card. I often try to reverse stamp the mask like you did. Sometimes it works, sometimes, not. Yours looks like it worked great.

Happy anniversary on Friday and happy WOYWW. 22 is quite an accomplishment!
