Friday Fun Day.

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

Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week.


The clearing of the new building site continues.


All clear now and ready for the next stage infact there has been a lot of noise down there today.

I wonder if you remember me showing you this tree which had been chopped back. It is in a garden at the end of our street. 


The couple had not lived there for very long and decided to cut it back.


This is how it looks now and growing well. I'll be back later in the year to see how it's getting on.


On the way back from my mum's this week we went through the next village from where she lives.
It's very old and has the most beautiful church too.
The village is called Laughton-en-le-Morthern.
There are many theories about the name which apparently in French means place of death which apparently fits with the fact that the Battle of Brunanburh took place close by which was supposed to be the last chance to regain the mainland from the Saxons.


I'm sure you'll agree the church is very pretty.


Several visits to the park.

Swan babies are growing.


This was funny. 
I wonder if you can guess why they have put a chain round it?
I'll let you know next week but for now what do you think?

And a few dog funnies for you.


I can't remember whether you've seen any of these so added a few extra.





That looks like a good idea for the weekend, hope you manage a bit yourselves.

 Thanks for stopping by.

And if you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.

woyww -642- What's On You Workdesk Wednesday.

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


Hi Workdesk friends. 
We are here for another Wednesday at the Workdesk and here is:
"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".


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



So here is my desk for today!


Back at the old desk as the Gothic Cabinet is all finished as you will see soon.


The purple bag has dried flowers in it and the little box next to it is soap colouring so you can probably guess what I'm likely to be up to next.
The plastic bowl appears to be a dumping ground at the moment and probably needs sorting.


The exploding box is filling up again but has been worse.


This is part of the samples that I'm preparing for my class at the Craft Club on Saturday.


And something lots of you have been waiting for........


The finished Cabinet.


Decorated the back too.


And the sides.


Hope you enjoyed that and it was worth waiting for.
If you would like to see more detail or you missed the earlier stages you can find the details here at my 3D project page.

So that's me done for today.

 Thanks for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,

Mixed Media Monday.

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

I am here today to show you some 3D mixed media that I've been working on:

I love the MDF projects by Hobbilicious and couldn't wait to play with this one.

Some of you have been watching the stages as I've gone along so it's only fair now to show you the finished project so here goes. Hope you like it.


Lots of moulded pieces went into the making of this piece by Prima, Zuri and Prosvet.


The MDF pieces are by Hobbilicious, and the black lace (Top side sections) by Prima.


I couldn't resist building up a little story around the back, just use your imagination my friends!


Another of my favourite dragon moulds (Prosvet).
The background was made using a Finnabair stencil and embossing paste. 


After adding the colour I finished the detail with gilding wax.


Side section.


So all finished with the addition of a few decorative items from my collection.
The wands are rock crystal and semi precious stones that I have collected over a long time and they just seemed to suit the cabinet and may well end up staying there.

If you would like to see the the stages in making this I have photographs in the page section and you can find them here.

I would love to hear your comments.

Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Friday Fun Day.

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

Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week.
 I was wondering what I have been doing this week.
Shopping for my mum's weekly order, doing her housework and walking the dogs as usual. A bit of gardening when it stopped raining and quite a bit of time in the cabin and that was about it but a few interesting photographs on the way.


Walking the dogs and watching them knock down the two houses.

If you were here last week you may remember what the houses looked like.


And the following day this was all that was left.
If you look towards the back of the land and you kept walking you would get down to where we live on the left hand side.


Still lots of rubble!
Look forward to seeing what happens next.


The park was busy the other day with school children looking for wildlife in the lake.
Great to see them enjoying the park.

I think I've mentioned before that Lincoln has a large piece of common land where quite  a few people keep their ponies. Recently some of the horses have been ill due to people feeding them foods which they shouldn't have so they have put up a notice.


I just had to show you this. 
It looks as though the pony is very interested in the picture of the cake.
How sweet is that!


Other than that, I've spent time in the cabin working on the cabinet again!


I have actually started adding colour now so everything should be finished by next week.

Not much else really today so I'll leave you with some dog funnies.








Hope you enjoyed those.
Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.

WOYWW - 641 - What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

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


Hi Workdesk friends. 
We are here for another Wednesday at the Workdesk and here is:
"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday" and as Julia posted early I've done the same!


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


So here is my desk for today!
Still in the cabin.

If you were around on Friday you might have seen me working on some moulding. I have just about got all the things I need now to complete the Gothic Cabinet so I am a bit further on this week.


Lots of new pieces added.


I really don't like this stage but you have to do it to move on! I always think of this as the "Ugly Duckling Stage".


I have had these gems in my stash for more years than I care to remember so needed to find a way of using them.


After attaching the moulded pieces I got to this and glued the roof in place.

More dragons on the way.


And then it was time to bring the whole thing together.
The textured pattern down the side edges were some old Ric Rac braid that was lying around.


The back and the drawers look like this.


And the roof section.

I know there are lots of you that don't do 3D mixed media so I wanted to show you the process of how easy it is to do even with a large project like this one.
I'll be adding the colour next so we've some way to go yet before it's finished but I'll be back soon.

So that's me done for today.

 Thanks for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,
