Wow its Wedensday already, I can't believe a week has passed again and its now almost mid May ...wher does time go?...that does mean its WOYWW time for us i
nquisitive nosey lot to check out each others workdesks/crafty spaces; hop over to Julia the generous host at the The Stamping Ground to take a look for yourself. As you can see from my desk all is quiet and looking a liittle bit neglected again!

I've not had any oppurtunities for craftying the last couple of days.The online watercolour class is still ongoing and my current project when I get the time !...I have so far made 4 complete cards, have another 3 almost finished and a pile of "art" all ready to make into more cards which is pretty good going for me in just over a week so I cannot complain really... I am now also 2 days (3 if you count today!)behind with the course, but I am under no pressure as you get have unlimited access to the lessons so hopefully it won't be long until I'm doing the next one.
Pile of finished ready to go and die cut "art peices "
I've learned so many new techniques and skills and I have developed a new card style which I like...so all is good. the latest lesson peice is on my desk...you can just see it in the right hand side, stamping with white embossing powder and the best bit was using a shimmer spray instead of water.I used a Mister Hueys colour mist which is all I had...the effect is pretty good...very shiny and shimmery; the stamping and painting wasn't perefct but the effect is very nice.Sorry the photo doesnt show the shine!...who would have guessed you could paint using a mist or shimmer spray instead of water!...fab technique. What hasn't changed unfortunately is my need to tidy up once I've finished for the day...I cant leave a mess...which means I spend a lot of time tidying when I could be crafting...oh well you can't have everything. Oops I do go on a bit...it's supposed to be short and sweet! I need to get ready for work too; but I will visit over the next few days, I can never seem to do it all in the one day!...I hope you are having a good week and lots of crafty fun...take care and thanks for visting...crafty hugs Andrea x
