Yes it is my desk
Its' been hard no to tidy everything away but I dont have the time to work on it a little and have the time to tidy in between, I decided last week to try something a bit different and out of my comfort zone and have been messing with chalks,ink,paints,gilding flakes and MDF. I still hate the feeling of ink and paint on my fingers but it did not stop me this time ...which is progress!
long shot with more chaos to see
My first attempt the finished heart is a Easter gift tag for a friend ... is ok but not quite what I had hoped for, I must be doing something wrong with the gilding flakes as they went quite dull and all crumbly and sticky when I was rubbing it in and removing the excess. I'm not sure whether my paint surface was still damp or too much glue ???..it worked ok on paper when I did a daft run, so I'm not sure where I went wrong? Second time around I cheated and inked and stamped onto card, cut to size and glued directly onto the heart... I'm not quite sure how I am going to decorate this one yet...but will keep you posted. I hope you have had a enjoyable and productive week and we get to share in the fruits of your labour... I love it and look forward to seeing what you've been up too. I'm on an early start again today so will be back after work to visit. Have a good day and thanks for visiting. Crafty hugs Andrea x
