WOYWW 303 # What's On You Workdesk Wednesdasy.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends.
Back again for another Wednesday at the Workdesk.

So here I am to show you:
"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the

Stamping Ground and our host Julia will explain and all will be revealed. H
ere is my desk this week and it's quite tidy really though we have been away as some of you will know.


I have never considered myself to be very good with Alcohol pens but these are brilliant and I think my blending is coming on.
Some of you may have seen me using them in earlier posts.
They are called Chameleon Pens.


Played with them first on this sheet of paper though you can download an actual test sheet to do this.


Just a quick close-up of one of the flowers.


Hope you like these.

Happy woyww.
Nice and quick just how we like it!!

Fabric Heart Hanging.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Today I have another of my fabric soft sculptures to show you.
I have made this using some of my fabrics from the melt technique which you will find here.

Started by cutting a heart shape and wings for the sides.
Next I machined around the side of the wing sections, placed the net underneath and then machined the heart wings and net together.

I then attached the embellishments in the form of buttons and brads and made a hanging using wire and beads which I attached to the back of the heart.

Once these were sewn on I attached the few loose pieces and the heart was completed ready to go to it's new owner.



The label on the back is also fabric which I printed on the computer.
How clever is that!





The little bird and butterfly is from Lakeland Plastics.





Hope you approve.


Happy stamping,

WOYWW 302 # What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends.
Back again for another Wednesday at the Workdesk.

So here I am to show you:
"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".
If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
Stamping Ground and our dear host Julia will explain and all will be revealed.
And here is my desk this week.
 
 
 This is not my usual desk, well it's far to tidy for a start Lol!
But mainly because we are in France skiing so I hope you will forgive me but don't worry I will be visiting as normal probably in the evening between bath-time and dinner.
 

As usual I have packed some crafting stuff (sad girl!).

I have brought one of the Chameleon pens and I am working on some Stampotique stamped images which I prepared in advance. 
I cannot tell you yet what the finished project is for but you will find out very soon (5th of April).
 
 
We have not stayed in this Hotel before and it is right on the slopes at Tignes in France so very handy for someone like me who is not keen on early starts.
 
This was Monday Morning:
 
 
And yes the white spots are snow which came down more or less all day though it did not stop us skiing and the sun came out in the afternoon which was lovely.
 
This is the view from the bar.
 
 
And this is a view from the bedroom.
 
 
I know you probably think these people could be anybody Lol! but the one in the black pants is me and the others are some friends we have been skiing with.
The lady at the end in the pink pants is my friend Lorraine who works in Tignes for the season as a Nanny but she is having the week off.
The yellow pants, that's Emma and the purple pants, Jill.
 
 
Sure you can see from this that the snow here is lovely.

I realise that for most of you this is not really very exciting so I will not keep you very long.
 
Have a lovely woyww and I will be back in my usual place next week.
 
Now lets go and find out what everyone else is up to.
 
Happy crafting,

Mother's Day Card.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Just thought you might like to see the card I made for mother's Day.
I have deliberately not shown it to you before as I wanted mum to receive it first. So here it is.




This is unusual for me as I have used printed papers from  Heartfelt Creations, Romantique Garden.

The stamp is by Inkadinkado and called Happy Days and the dragonfly by DoCraft with stickles glue to finish.




Insert.


Hope you liked that.
Happy Crafting,

WOYWW 301 # What's on Your Workdesk Wednesdsay.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends.
Back again for another Wednesday at the Workdesk.

So here I am to show you:
"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
Stamping Ground and our dear host Julia will explain and all will be revealed.

And here is my desk this week.
Surprising how quickly you can make them untidy again Lol!


It's been a week for card Making. 
This was a birthday card I made using Tim Holtz stamps and dies.




I also made this card in other colours, this one is for a male friend but I have made them in girly colours too.

And another style of card for my friend who loves cats.
The cat on the card actually looks just like her own.





I have other cards to show you but that is enough for this post and the others will follow later in the week.

Happy crafting.
 I'm off to look at what all the others are up to, hope you'll join me.

Happy crafting,

Masterboard Monday

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Just thought you might like to see the Masterboard I have sent to my friend Gloria this month.



I started by swiping the distress ink onto a craft mat.
Next, spritz this with water and pick up the ink by dragging the paper across it. 


I used Nature Walk and Bird Feather stamp sets by Tim Holtz and started by stamping eggs onto the paper and heat embossing this.
I then applied more colour to the Masterboard using a blending tool.


At this stage I completed the stamping.


I will show you the resulting project when Gloria sends it back to me.

Happy crafting,

The Mirror Crack'd - Mixed Media Challenge 7 - Anything with Wings.

 Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Here we are again for another challenge at The Mirror Crack'd and this month it's Anything with Wings(but not cards please).


After giving this much thought.... would it be birds, butterflies, bees, bats(nice and spooky)Gothic, or Steampunk style maybe, fantasy perhaps maybe fairies, Angels, aeroplanes, chickens and ducks maybe even dragons or Pterosaurs (pterodactyl being the most well known)?

So Many things have Wings!

In the end I decided on either a heart or a cloud, neither of which normally have wings but this is my blog and if I want them to have wings then they will Lol!

I also wanted to try and use some of the fabrics I have been playing with recently and this is how it developed.

Not so long ago we were out in the car and I took photographs of some lovely clouds which kind of got me thinking.



And I thought that some of the fabrics I have been working on recently would look good as clouds.
So this is what I made.



I used a Sizzix die for the heart as seen here.


This is the fabric I constructed earlier. If you are interested in seeing how I made it the link is here to the technique.




Next I outlined the shape onto the back and cut it out.


 Spraying the fabric came next.
For this I used Crafty Notions sprays.


And this is the result.


However I turned the clouds over and this is what I found !!!!
And what a surprise, I have to say I liked it better than the front and decided to work on this side..


I did however use the right side of some of the fabric to make the wings.


After spraying and drying the fabric I started the construction. First attaching the backing fabrics which I frayed to soften the edges. I inserted the stuffing, joined the clouds together and then attached the raindrops.













 I hope you enjoyed looking at my mixed media soft sculpture.

 It would be great if you could pop over to see what the rest of my team members have made this month at The Mirror Crack'd.



Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Angela x
