WOYWW AND WHAT A WEEK

Since last Wednesday I have been away for 4 days, I painted preserve on the wooden garden furniture, heard some sad news from 2 crafting friends and our Susanna has sold her house and managed to get another about 6 miles from us. Phew!
I took some images and my Copics away with me but only managed to complete 3. The show was really good this year although the model flying was not, so I've been trying to catch up on some projects I need to have done within the next couple of weeks. What's on my desk is not one of those but a technique I wanted to try.
I have used tissue paper, matt medium, gesso, sprays and ink pads to make the bird images and decided to cut the whole thing up and make 4 ATCs.
My box of sticky gems is in a right 'ol mess as you can see.
I received my bookmarks yesterday from Heather, but will blog a separate post on those. My swaps are just gorgeous.
I'm in a rush this morning as I'm off to the hairdressers to get this bird nest on the top of my head sorted out. After that, I intend to pop over to Julia's and then take the woyww express around the world to yours. I'm also hoping to get this Blogger comment thing finally sorted in the next few days when computer Dave comes to make some changes to 'T's' computer. Maybe then I will be able to comment on your space.
Until then, have a wonderful WOYWW.

glad to hear you had fun at the air show! I never seem to get as much done as I take with me either. Love all the gems in the box. I bought one of those clip it racks and I like it but I used to enjoy digging in the box for 'finds' Thanks for sharing. Vickie

Oooh the tags look great - glad you enjoyed the air show - my Dad used to fly model aeroplanes so I was always at different air shows when I was younger - oh those were the days! Good news on your daughters house move and I hope you are ok after the sad news. Thanks for sharing.

Glad to hear that you actually had fun at the air show. LOL! You actually inspired me to stamp a bunch of images to take to our nightly sports practice to color, so that I can have something to do while the kids play! Thanks for sharing your desk, and hope that you get caught up on your projects! -Amanda

I made my first ever atc at the weekend and then turned it into a tag so I can mount it on a card as I didn't know what to do with it! Love your birdy ones. Good news for your daughter too.
