I hope that all your preparations for Christmas are going well! My desk this week shows my efforts to catch up on Ali and mine monthly Tag Challenge. I'm still on November which was 'seed heads' which we both love.
As yet unfinished as I can't think of a fitting caption but I'm working on it!
This lovely metal effect was a happy accident on my part. I used texture paste through a stencil and then sprinkled gold embossing powder on it and heated it with a heat gun! After a few seconds when it bubbled alarmingly and the smell of burning was definetly in the air… it settled down to this lovely raised finish. I am going to try it out with a Christmas stencil.
Well…. despite being nearly Christmas the weekend was a bit of a let down. I managed to put the Christmas tree up and then had to retire to the sofa with a nasty cough and an elephant that settled itself on my chest!
No picture of the elephant but here's the tree!
Can you spot Amber my cat curled up making like a present! As soon as the tree is up and the tree skirt in place she then takes up residence underneath for the duration!
Well… I seriously need to get rid of this elephant on my chest as I have loads of stuff to do and a party to go to on Friday night. A new black dress to squeeze in to, hair and nails booked so I am willing myself better!
I am looking forward to a little time out to catch up with you all over at Julia's!
Have a happy week
