Good morning, everyone! If you'd like to play along with show-your-crafty-space-to-other-crafty-folk, be sure to visit Stamping Ground (once you've sufficiently perused this post of course -- ha,ha.)
Here is the state of entropy I left my desk in last evening before going to sleep. Here's what's "new" -- sharp eyes will see a new chart on the wall to the left for keeping track of which distress markers have come to live with me so far and will also see the markers themselves in the green metal holder in the upper right corner of the table. I've got a few teeny tiny wood embellishments on the table that I've misted and/or stamped on and a couple of canvas ATC blanks that I'm going to use on layouts or to die cut embellishments from. I picked up a couple of new rolls of washi tape (trying not to go too crazy, but these are so pretty!) (All photos can be seen larger if clicked upon.)
I couldn't get myself motivated to start a layout, so decided I'd give Tim Holtz's May tag a go. I had to do a lot of substituting (which I'd feel more guilty about except that Ranger and TH get a steady amount of my crafting $ over the year.) I think I still want to do some inking over the top and find something for the ribbon trim, but I'm basically done.
Since I don't have the melting pot or UTEE, I tried two different methods of emulating the faux porcelain flowers. The flower that appears slightly darker here I smushed into my Versamark ink pad and used regular embossing powder and a heat gun on. The other two that appear lighter, I coated liberally with Glossy Accents. (What did I ever do before I had GA? Too scary to contemplate.) I think I prefer the latter, but having the two shades is a nice little bit of contrast.
I've probably babbled a bit too much here this morning! I need to get ready for work and get this posted! Thanks for visiting and I wish you a very happy and creative Wednesday.
P.S. Administrative note: I've turned off the feature that requires the funky words to be typed in (after a WOYWWer said she had to try three times to comment) and instead have opted for moderating the comments. I hate to have to do that, but I was having a problem with rude spam comments on my posts.
