Desk Time

Well (yes, I know that's a hole in the ground) it's Wednesday again.  It's that fateful (??) day when I share a view of my desk from yesterday afternoon and join up with a bunch of wonderful gals who are also brave to share their desks. This is week 591. This just blows my mind! And it's all because of Julia at the Stamping Ground, she holds us together.

My desk is very busy.  I was making a card to show on my video today.  I'm showing an old technique called Saran Wrap Background.  I want to have a card completed to show along with the making of a card.

Let's see... a pack of paper on the left. A die set and tube of glue center left. Part of my design center and a gem picker-upper. Tool-in-One, dies, and my Platinum 6 on the far right. There's also some ink pads center right back of mat. This card I'm working on will be shared tomorrow and the card from the video will be shared Friday.

I've been having quite the allergy issues lately.  My eyes look a bit puffy and my nose is kinda red. Ugh. Hope you all are doing better.

Well, that's it for now. I need to get ready for my video! And to think, this is the last day of September!!

I was going to ask where your videos were, then I saw the massive Youtube logo in the sidebar... LOL!

I'm with you - the last day of September?? Blimey!

Happy WOYWW!

I know that Saran Wrap is the same as our cling film, but I'm intrigued to know how you use it, I'll have to have a sneaky peek at your video. I've come to the conclusion that glue/double sided tape hates me...I tried making some cards yesterday and both foxed me.

Sorry to hear you are suffering with allergies, Carol. Pretty miserable for you! I hope you can immerse yourself in your creativity to take your mind off it a bit. I've done a bit in the past with the cling film background technique and it's really fun - gorgeous random results! I also love sprinkling on coarse grain salt onto wet ink and letting it dry - the salt takes up the colour and the results are great.

Thank you for visiting and leaving such a nice comment - so glad you like my tiny carpets! I do have a lot of embroidery threads and there are lots more of those bags in the box in the studio. It's fun rummaging through them for the colour you want.

Happy WOYWW,

I'd love to see a close up of what you do with the background, it's not something I use much now but I've seen many awesome things done with cling film. Have fun & stay creative with your busy crafty space Tracey #7
