WOYWW 277 # What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

A big welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends.
It's come around again, Wednesday I mean.

Angela here to show you:
"What's on my workdesk this Wednesday"(WOYWW).

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.
Anyway back to my desk Lol!
This week I have been working with a Masterboard which was sent to me by my friend Gloria.
Each month we both make a masterboard and swap them, then make something using these papers and send them back.
This is great fun and you never know what the other person is going to do until it pops back through the letterbox or the postman knocks on the door.
Great fun and it's just like Christmas opening the parcel.
So here's my offering for this month.
Gloria's Masterboard looked like this:
And this is me working on the project.
Sorry, you are only seeing a little bit of desk on this post.

If you were here earlier this week you will have already seen it,
but not this!
The Front Cover.

I covered the centre of the ballooon with Tim Holtz clear Crackle paint and then went over it with green ink when set.
I have sealed the crackle with Mod Podge glue to ensure the crackles don't break off.

A little peek!
And this is the inside.
This is what I call a book box, simple to make as it is just a flat, shallow box base and a cover.
I have cut out some of the airships from the Masterboard and attached them with 3D foam stickers and added stickles glue and 3D glaze.
I have also used some of Tim Holtz Ephemera: Expedition which can be seen inside the box.

And here is:
The Back Cover.
I would like to say it's finished but you never know Lol!
I may add a little something extra to the inside, it feels as though there should be something else there, we will have to see.
Hope you enjoyed looking and thank you for visiting. It would be nice if you could pop over to see some of the other desks on view today at the Stamping Ground.
Happy crafting,
Angela x

    Take care. God bless.

  7. Wow Angela, this is amazing! The texture on the balloon is fantastic and I love your little birds! So many wonderful elements inside and out! The little touches of green really amp it up, just fabulous! hugs :)

  12. What a brilliant idea! I love your fabulous 'book box' and the way you have used the master board with everything else - fantastic! Chris 45

  13. Stunning book box - I really love that vintage steam punk feel to it - and thanks for the tip on sealing the crackle glaze with Mod Podge so it doesn't flake off - that's a problem I've had in the past and will definitely try your handy hint! Hope you have a great week,

  17. WOW Angela! You always surprise me! I would have never looked at that master board and come up with the same thing you did! I guess that's what so fun about trading them huh? What a super cool idea!!!

    Happy WOYWW!

  18. Hi Angela, come on over and have a good old mooch through my stash! I don't fully understand the Masterboard concept, but from this post it looks like a piece of art which is then reused. Which is more than I knew before! The book box looks great.

  19. I love how you played with the masterboard. Lovely! Creative Blessings! Kelly #66

  20. Hi Angela, happy WOYWW and thanks for visiting my desk. Your book box is amazing, totally love what you've done with the masterboard Gloria created - what a super idea to encourage and challenge each other. I have two friends with whom I do something similar..we each pick either a colour, layout or theme for a card each month - its fun. Cheers and enjoy your week RobynO#29

  21. Your box is incredible, I keep going back to the photos and just staring at it. To think it started out as a sheet of paper. You are very creative, I love it.
    Have a great week,
    Von #23

  22. WOW, I love your project.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Happy WOYWW

  23. Oh my goodness, I LOVE that book-box!!! Swaps like that are fun indeed (I have two art journals going on between me and a good friend... we swap our book to make a page and give it back to the other to fill the other page up to make a spread...) It is inspiring and fun, thanks for showing your project and thanks for stopping by my desk yesterday. Hope you have a nice, colourful, sunny and inspiring day. Happy woyww, Marit #47

  24. Thanks for calling by at mine yesterday. I'm really enjoying my catch up with my blogging friends today. There is so much talent out in this world :-) Really love the idea of swapping a challenge like that.

  25. Thanks so much for the tutorial you have provided of the journey of this lovely piece. It's always nice to come visit!

  26. I love what you've made and I bet your friend will love it. I've done something similar but without the mood board and there have been a number of people involved. Thanks for popping over to my blog. Anita #50 WOYWW

  27. Wow, that is just a beautiful project! It is so rich and layered, I absolutely love it. Tim Holtz stuff is so great to work with--I need more Tim Holtz stuff! Thanks for the visit. Hugs! Sandy Leigh #57

  28. That is gorgeous and then some xx

  29. Hi Angela, that is so creative! I love it! I am going to have to look closer at it :)
    Thanks for dropping by earlier. I am awfully late this week :)

  30. That sounds like a great way to work with something you might not have done otherwise Angela, and I bet you both have fun opening up the parcels. Have a great weekend. 26C here all weekend so I won't be wearing my new socks. lol!

  31. What a beautiful project, Angela - I wasn't sure what a book box was till I saw this! Along with masterboards, you are managing to introduce me to quite a lot of lovely new things! (Love this masterboard, too). I'm afraid I haven't done any more on my masterboard as I've had other things to do lately.

    Happy belated WOYWW,
    Shoshi #35

  32. Hey Angela, thanks for visiting me. Apologies for the late visit. I absolutely love your book box - very clever and such beautiful work by you. Cx #65

  33. Thanks for your lovely comments, Angela, and I'm glad you like my card and my ARTHaven (untidy as it was - yesterday a.m. I had a grand tidy-up lol!). As for being late with WOYWW, I always say you are never late if you get in a comment before 11.59 p.m. on the Tues. night!
