WOYWW 606


 The state of the desk this morning. Lots going on, the Light Blue thing is a spindle in the making. The tiny piile of yellow by the light green mouse is a paper chain for a layout about the tine I saved Christmas (according to my sister) by making a tree out of construction paper. I am left handed : D. Also an empty teriyaki  bottle now a tip proof dispenser of clean water. The gold disk in front of the light is another spindle in the making. Fingers crossed it will be a fancy one! I may have an ink problem... there are more in drawer and boxes.Tools hanging out like sailors on a ships rigging. It's always a test of gravity around here : D.


 I am really benefiting from Victoria Marie's Project Done (a year long scrapbooking class, a rolling class that can be joined at any time btw). While I do like that sponotaneous creativity that comes from following one's creative nose, I am seeing the benefits of having a loose guideline of direction. For instance I have decided to put all my child's childhood birthday events in a single album.

I am also taking an Altenew Academy class called Background Magic. While it was intended to be for cards, I am having fun with scrapbook pages. I used Altenew Halftone Circles and my Tim Holtz stamping platform for this one stamped three times simply rotating the paper.

Then shifting the paper 1/8" to stamp a fourth time with embossing ink. Then sprinkling some embossing powder across the page (make sure to only heat it from underneath lol).

Check out Julia's Stamping Ground for more crafty goings ons : D

Whilst I enjoyed having a snoop around your desk, it was the slightly blurry circles that really caught my imagination, they’re fab!

A birthday album is a great idea ~ I Started a Christmas album, and it's fun to leave out as part of the decorations. Enjoy your class & your weekend ~ Love, Karen#30

I love your background samples, and what fun to be making spindles. I made a black one many years ago, with gold painted decorations on it. I used to use it a lot and then I got a spinning wheel, but I haven't used that for years because I find it too tiring to operate these days!

Happy belated WOYWW,

I love those stamped circle background, the texture and 'fine print' that shows... wow! Sorry for being late with my visit this week (the deskers-list is long and I visit a few per day) Have a great weekend, stay healthy and safe! Love from the Netherlands, Marit #31

I immediately wondered what the teriyaki was doing...one of those odd moments when you put the wrong thing in a place.....! Just me then?!
Very impressed at the rolling class idea, something I could benefit from, where it’s ok to dip in and out! Loving the effect of the circles, isn’t that clever!

Sorry I'm late for my WOYWW snoop! That's a good idea, I have loads of photos in the attic, I could pick out the best ones and have a album of just my girls birthday parties, that way they'll get to see their friends too! Happy WOYWW!? Stay Safe Keep Crafting! ((Lyn))#21
