WOYWW IS IT REALLY 1 WEEK TO GO?

I cannot believe that 2 years have passed so quickly and that during that time (not the whole 2 years I hasten to add - I was a late starter) I have nosied around your craft spaces, poked in your cupboards, drawers and boxes, and enjoyed looking at the amazing creations going on in your space. What an adventure. Long may it continue. All thanks, of course to our wonderful leader Julia, without whom none of this travel would be possible.
I have a little surprise this week. My craft space is not bare. I've been getting inky and enjoying myself following a big dose of a craft workshop last Sunday.
I rummaged through my alcohol inks to find the blues, greens, a yellow and an orange in order to make ATC-sized matts.

Each one turned out different as you can see.

I put them to one side, chopped down an early flowering clematis, made tea, watched the news then made an atc.

Ooops! rumbled. I did all that yesterday. But, my craft space looks like this this morning.
Still in production, but there is a finished card to be seen.
The other day,I had a little request from a friend about how to use 7 Gypsies gaffer tape. I've never come across this product so can't advise her, can you please.
Right, I'm off to do some visiting now. Roll on the very exciting next week.

Love those juicy colour combinations in fact they look so good they stand up as art without the stamps. Thats me though I love colour and pattern.

Linda Elbourne said...

LOVE the colour combination ... looking very fab indeed!

Julia Dunnit said...

How MARVELLOUS they look Joanne, all the possibilities - so glad you reminded me that alcohol inks can be use-able!! Kind words about WOYWW, but really,it's self sustaining...so nothing without you.

Fab backgrounds - I love messing around with alcohol inks too. With gaffer tape you can use it to edge photos or layouts, put pins through it, bind books, could probably use it all ruffled up like tissue tape too (I keep meaning to try that but havent yet). Hope this helps. Sunshine Girl No. 40

Really love how these are turning out Joanne, brilliant colours too. And it's no secret that my photo is usually from the weekend, not from the day before of the day of the snoop!

Love those back grounds you've made with your inks, I have played with paint in the same way,as I haven't (still) got any inks.. if I get a 'good' one, I scan it in to use again. my next buy will have to be some inks... I guess I should start with red blue and yellow,. Happy WOYWW!
