WOYWW 202

Hello Everyone, and WELCOME to my new follower Julie Ann, glad to have you on board.


Now I dont know where this week has gone, but what I do know is its that wonderful time of the week where we make a dash around the worlds crafty desks to have a peek at what everyone else is up to. If you want to find out more then head over to stamping-ground.blogspot.com .
On my desk this week  I have a couple of  projects for future workshops.  At the moment though I am working on my Tim Holtz Tag for April as I am determined not to leave it until last minute again. I was not going to get the new distress paints as I thought I did not need them as I have a good collection of eco-paints. I then thought why not try them, and I can tell you I am hooked.  The coverage is superb and they are so easy to work with, so now I will have to save up to get more colours.    I am loving the technique that Tim has used for his tag this month using the paint, and I get the feeling you will see more of this in some of my up and coming projects. The corner punch has been used to punch out some metel tape to make a faux metal corner as I don't have any proper ones at the moment, when it is embossed and painted I think it will look quite good.  My cup of tea is no longer as you see, so I had better refill it and have a nosey around a few desks before I have to dash out.  As usual I will visit anyone who visits me and anyone ending in the same number as me. Have a great day.
Hugs Mo x

  5. Loving the colours you’re working with this week Mo, I bet your tag is going to look beautiful. I’ve not tried Distress Paints myself and am trying hard to resist the urge to buy some as I’m trying to scale back a bit.
    The hearts iat the back of your table lok amazing by the way!

    Thanks for stopping by this week.

    Happy Crafting!

  15. Your desk is so tidy!! I wish I could work like that. I am not hooked on Tim yet, but I am trying desperately not to get hooked on anything else.

  17. Thanks for being so welcoming, Mo. Your desk looks serene! Calm, peaceful colours all somehow co-ordinating and yet looking ready for action: how do you do it? I've not yet had the courage to publish what my work space looks like! Maybe next week? I haven't made a tag for ages. I must visit Tim's blog and take a look for inspiration!
    Thanks again for making me feel a part of things. Julie Ann.

  20. G'day Mo
    I'm running late but thanks for stopping by my desk. My guest has arrived early and is staying in my art room so no WOYWW for me next week. Oh wow your desk is so neat even though you have been creating LOL. The tag looks gorgeous. I don't own any TH paints either but I'm thinking I should get some to try them out. Love the hearts at the back right of your desk too :o)
    hugs
