WOYWW 66

Its a miracle just one picture this week, I've been tidying again thanks to lack of mojo.  But once all was tidied I still needed a mojo boost so I flicked through new Craft Stamper for something I wanted to try and had the items required to hand. Came upon Sunset silhouette by Joanne Wardle, using DI to make graduated backgrounds, now I have increased my Di's recently by 6 new ones so was ready to play.  Well following Joanne's instructions, it was super easy and I thought super effective.  Tag card was my first effort, then decided to use mask to add shapes, tree card demos this, then had a play on an ATC (available), then last night decided to read article properly and discovered gloss card had been used, so had to have another go, used Tim's umbrella man (wouldnt stamp properley, felt sticky, had to do it three times to get image, does anyone knows what causes this, or does it simply need a good clean?), then used one of my fave Paper Arsty ones, think i will use these as toppers on cards or ATC's.  It was great fun, very quick and the results I think were great.

Also in the background was my genie in the bottle card, suposed to be for my 20 year old nieces birthday, but having done image have got stuck with what else to do with it, might be on the wrong card, will have to think on it, perhaps a bit more burlesque is required.

So thats my craft for the week, had a lovely visit to Craft barn on saturday and manged to go right up to my od limit, OOPS, but such fun and silly not to buy whilst I was there, dont you agree girlies.

Hope I get round to seeing a few more of you this week, and to those that visit thanks so much and I will try doubly hard to return the visit, toodle pip . . .

the jar girl is erotic enough already - it's the background Or Lack of It that is not doing her ( truely fantastically gorgeous) justice,

look at your favorite stamp - see those buttocks - why do you see them? why do they look fab - what is in the space around them?

think about the positive and negative space you have created- look them up and ponder

if you know not of what I speak ask me for more -

when you can see what is missing - then scan in your jar girl and experiment - even if you did it straight to the card you could cut out the jar and start again if you wanted - I promise you would like it better with a background - or even just a shadow thrown by the jar at it's base...

tell me when you've done more with it....can't wait to see what you choose to do

Hi there,

thanks for visiting my blog. I always take out the stuff before hand as this can help me picture the final product. But as you can see in the following post, I often change as I go along.

Ohhhh so much gorgeousness on your desk. The card is fabulous - how did you create it? I bet you've mentioned on your blog before so I'll nosey back. The techniques you've been trying sound interesting - I may have to invest in that mag!

Love the space!!

Deborah said...

So are we going to see what you splurged on at craft barn? These days I have to live vicariously through other peep's craft stash!Love your blended DI ink backgrounds btw :-)

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

You have a lot of cards and art going on for someone who has no mojo. I really love the trees. The contrast between the image and background are sensational. That may be why you don't like your girl in a bottle, although I really like those images.

Sorry I'm so late getting around this week. My computer just wants to freeze up every time I visit a new site. Happy belated WOYWW!

Great workspace - we don#t get the craft stamper here in Malta but bought it this summer on my trip in the UK. Loved it, so know what you mean when you said you went though it for inspiration. It's great! Enjoy crafting
