Last week was the 300th Anniversary of this wonderful crafty web fest aka WOYWW and I missed it! I completely forgot it was Wednesday, I was having such a busy, manic week… Oh well…will try to do better!
So my desk this week..
I am working on a box card for a colleague of mine for her friend's 50th birthday. After making and covering the box fairly quickly, I then ran out of inspiration as to what to put in the top.. so I experimented with a butterfly stamp and sentiment from IndigoBlu and my distress inks.
I liked the results so I will be adding these.. as you can see I stamped a few butterflies to get the colours right to match the paper on the box! They are very pretty and I will use them on another project.
This last photo is my effort for our (Alison and mine) February Tag challenge. We had to use "Layers and Stamping" I haven't put the customary ribbon through the end as we are threading them on a ring and are adding ribbons later.
I have spent a really fabulous day today out on the first part of an art project with some pupils. They took photos of each other posing with a photo frame wearing a variety of hats. These photos were then printed out in black and white and the children then had to add colour to them using pastels, felts and crayons. What a fantastic job they did. Such a simple idea but lots of fun! Some were quite Andy Warhol!
Well… that's me done for this week. I am looking forward to visiting you too.
Have a happy week
