This post for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, of necessity, will have to short, sharp and to the point - because I am sooooooooooo late!!! And I won't even pretend that this is what my desk looks like now ...
... no, that's what it looked like late last night. But, you can be assured it hasn't improved much since. I was in the middle of altering that little heart-shaped box (smallest one of three - an Ikea find) to something pretty.
What you see are supplies used in the project. There's also a couple of painted canvases - well, I mixed up too much paint, it would have been a shame to waste it.
This morning, I persevered and here's the finished box:
After painting the box inside and out, I cut heart shapes from a dark blue Core'dinations cardstock and a Kanban embossed card in blue and silver and adhered these to the lid - see the first photo. The sides of the box have been stamped with VersaMark and embossed with Heat It Up silver powder. The turquoise rose trim (from stash) has been attached using a hot glue gun - as has the flower and ribbon embellishment on the lid. The ribbon - which has been lingering in my stash for many months, is one of those that has a cord threaded through it - you pull the cord and, hey presto! ... you have a many-looped bow!
I feel and explanation for my tardiness is due, especially to Julia, our noted Head of Workdesks over on Stamping Ground. Well, I almost decided not to participate at all today. You see, it's just possible I may not be around for the next few days ... I've been called for Jury Service! Of course, it's just as possible that I may turn up at the court tomorrow morning and they might decide they don't need my services after all ... we shall see. However, it does mean that blog-hopping time may be severely limited so apologies in advance.
And apology follows apology. I'm sorry if I did not get around to visiting you last week ... family visits over Easter got in the way. I hope to make up for all this neglect over the next few weeks ... as soon as I get this jury thing out of the way :)
Happy WOYWW and happy crafting,
