WOYWW 169

It's not my workdesk, but it's my Altered Alarm Clock (in the pink photoshop circle) at the fair. It sure does look a lot smaller there than it does on my craft table lol. And ohhhhhh my bug, I fell in love with that quilt on the wall, looks like it's made from wool, the quilt maker should be pleased with her work :D.

It's been a long lazy catching up on little projects and napping day for me. But this evening I'll be listening to one of my favorite podcasts and it's featuring Tim Holtz!

And speaking of Tim Holtz, I was channeling my inner TH earlier in the week and came up with a way to make fall leaves out of wax paper (I started with wax paper instead of kraft glassine though). I'm going to make a picture tutorial, but you can read about it here if you are interested :D.

If you are wondering what's all this WOYWW, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander at crafty goodness all over the world. Better yet, take a picture of your own workdesk and share :D.

Lovely photo - the stuff looks all so textured..

and I think most of half the crafter's i know are channeling their TH this week - what would we do without his products..

Have a great week my dear..

Do you have a bigger photo of your clock that you can point me to? It looks so dang cool!

I can see why you fell in love with the quilt, by the way.

Your card is amazing. I'll have to checkout that tutorial as those leaves look totally real!

Happy WOYWW

The leaves on that card look soo real. Like you went outside and pulled them off a tree or at least picked them up off the ground. Have to check out your tutorial, I just bought a box of wax paper. #27

Do I spy a ribbon by your altered alarm clock, and I hope you show a better picture of it, would love to see it in more detail! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Tertia said...

Always such a kick to see your work on display, isn't it. We are our worst critics, your clock is beautiful and not small at all (for a clock(. That quilt is amazing, it must have taken ages to do.
Love the leaves and will come back for the tutorial.
Happy WOYWW!

Awesome that your clock is at the fair! I love that quilt too! I wonder if we could make say a 24" x 24" paper collage similar to it...might be worth giving it a try. Have a great week. Thanks for sharing! Vickie #67

I always forget that I can enter things at the fair! I've never done it ut I've always threatened to! Is the ribbon below the alarm clock yours?!?!

I LOVE the technique you did with the leaves on the card! I honestly thought they were real leaves! I read how you did it, and can't wait to see the tute!!

Happy Wednesday!

There's that alarm clock! So cool! I'm with you on that wall quilt, so neat. I love the leaf card and wondered what the leaves were made out of. They look so real and OMG--wax paper?! I totally see it. I totally works. All the texture in your card really makes it pop.

Your quilt is beautiful! And I love LOVE your leaves. Wow! :)

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh the alarm clock looks good, funny how it takes on a different sise! No less lovely though. Im kinda with you on the quilted panel too...so cheery!

Laura said...

I love your card -- great idea using the waxed paper for the leaves and the embossed background definitely brings to mind rain. :) Happy WOYWW (on Thursday evening) from Laura #122

laura said...

We did leaves like that when I was a kid by melting crayons between wax paper with an iron. Your idea is much safer.

Audrey Frelx said...

Love your pretty card!!! Looks like a great technique you used!!! Turned out great!

The quilt looks great but couldn't quite make out the clock... lol!
