Welcome to the “What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday” blog hop hosted by the lovely Julia at The Stamping Ground, where we open our craft rooms up to have you peak at our desks—our work habits, whether good, the bad and the ugly, and to meet kindred souls.
My desk this week…the ugly. Working on two large (out of normal comfort zone) canvas’s for the Wanderlust class. So…if working on an A2 size card is spaciously challenging…why I thought I could do 2 of these (well, I figured while one layer is drying, move to the other) at one time is boggling. Yes; there is now paint on the carpet…the wall, and more body parts that I care to admit.
The piece on the left still has the stencil and mask in place, so as soon as the under layer is dry, I can put a lighter color on top…as this was last night, I’m hoping the stencil isn’t cemented to the surface. The piece on the right…./shake head. All the collaged papers that were to go under wrinkled big-time. Now, your supposed to spray rubbing alcohol over pieces and rub the white paint away revealing the first colored coat….and some of the printed pages. I’m thinking disaster is awaiting. There are piles of stencils everywhere. Yes, I’ve given up cleaning them unless I used Distress or Dylusion’s inks, since they will keep reactivating. There are a few piles of stamps hanging out, as well as ink pads, icky paper towels, and a journal sticking out under the long piece.
And here are two ATC’s I’ve received so far, from GlitterandGlue and ShazSilverwolf! Lovely! I still have one ATC to trade, so let me know if you’d like it.
So that’s me; now go back to the Stamping Ground to portal off to other creative desks. Stay Crafty my friends.
