Today my desk is a bit of a purple explosion. Yesterday I completed a card with a lilac and white theme which turned out not too bad so today the plan is to push my boundaries even further and make a purple and black card. Behind Tilda - a vision in purple - is some white card I have coloured with Cosmic Shimmer (a mix of Purple Violet, Twilight Black and Rich Gold) using the cling film technique. I've used this technique a few times now and just love the effect although it does not show up very well in the photograph. Behind that is a black paper with all sorts of spots on it - kinda suggestive of snowballs - which I thought would fit in very well with the theme. I sprayed the roses and leaves with Purple Violet and Twilight Black last night and they are dry ready to use this morning.
Just to the left and almost out of shot is my new Tim Holtz book, Distressables 2 The Journey, and beneath it is the latest edition of Scrapbook Magazine - both full of inspiration. At the back of the desk is the usual mess. You might just see Tilda lurking in one of the plastic containers - this time a vision in blue. As you can see, I really am trying to break out of my comfort zone with these non-traditional colours for Christmas. To the left of my Chicken box there are a couple of sentiments - these are embossing/stickling experiments that didn't quite work!
Well, that's the state of my workdesk today - I'm off to have some breakfast now - and will be back to finish the purple card later.
Bye for now
