Good Morning Everyone,
Well, I don't know how it happened but here we are at the penultimate of the bicentennial WOYWW and now I'm truly in a panic over my PIF. It's nowhere near completion so I'd better pull my socks up and get a wriggle on if I'm going to make it. For those who don't know what WOYWW is all about you can do no better than follow this link here to the lovely lady who keeps the register every week, Julia, Queen of Desks, at Stamping Ground. From there you will be able to follow links to many other desks/tables/shelves/cubby holes/floors situated all over the world and it is all good fun.
Blogger has been really giving me a hard time recently. I came back from my road trip to find I couldn't get into my dashboard until yesterday. No explanation, no post on help to suggest the techies knew anything was amiss - nothing! And, what is worse, I am unable to leave comments on many of the sites of my fellow bloggers : ( I've tried every which way with absolutely no success - I can't sign in at these blogs so apologies to you all - I did try but it's just not playing. Goodness knows what today will bring - I hope the gremlins get sorted out soon.
So on to today's business. What's on my desk is the result of my practicing two techniques - brayering and bleaching. You can see the results of the brayering - I used a couple of Big & Juicies for this - and all I can say is there is still a long way to go. Barbara Grey, you have nothing to fear. The bleaching was more successful - I liked the 'stained glass' effect I got after painting the flowers with Summer Shimmers (free with Cardmaking & Papercraft this month).
I've taken a wider shot of the craft space this week so you can see a lot more stuff. The shelf above my desk it vital. Up there is a box of adhesives, Cuttlebug folders, 12" x 12" papers, card, scraps, templates, etc., etc., a couple of albums I'm working on, a box of stickers, and boxes containing tools of the trade - absolutely essential.
Okay, I'm off to have breakfast now and a much needed cup of tea. I wish you all a very happy WOYWW day and I'll be back later to do a bit of blog hopping - and see what you are all up to today. Hopefully, Blogger might have sorted itself out and I'll be able to leave comments today - just don't hold your breath :)
Edited Note: for those interested you can see how the bleached piece came out in the next post - link here.
