Wednesday, where did the week go again, makes me wonder how I ever found time to work!!
I decided this year I would actually join in with a few challenges, usually I see them and think, mmmm I could do that, I start with great intentions but time seems to overtake me and before I´ve finished everyone has moved on to the next one. Surprisingly I did actually finish one, the mixed media challenge across at Splitcoaststampers, it was rather messy but I really enjoyed it.
My desk this week, well the purple bits of card are left over from the mixed media challenge, I managed three pieces by pressing them over my gelli plate, one piece I made into a card, the one with the white die cut resting on the top I embossed and then rubbed Indigo Treasure gold over the raised part. I would really love more colours but I´m saving my craft money to spend on our trip to England.
You can see in the background a whole mess of bits from discarded projects, yes, you can see a Christmas tree, its a new stamp I bought, another challenge that I didn't finish!! there´s also some stencilled card, I used the bare branches stencil but it didn't turn out as planned so its in the heap, I live in hopes that one day I will suddenly find some inspiration and use all these bits and pieces but seeing as I threw away some from about six years ago I don't think that's likely but being a hoarder I somehow cant part with them.
I hope the weather is being kind to you wherever you are, sunny but a few clouds over here.
Have a great day and thanks for popping over.
