Wednesday 21 May 2014


Only a week to go to the big event not sure what I'm talking about ...want to know more ?... go to the Stamping Ground and find out all about WOYWW and the 5th anniversary ATC swap I'm all set; my extra ATC's have been sent and almost all received, now I am just waiting for the big day for my last one to go to its new owner. I haven't posted any of them and keeping them all a surprise to next week; all will be revealed together on Wednesday. I am off work this week and last night had a great crafty session doing more of the online watercolour course and making cards from my growing supply of homework pieces. Sorry pics are a bit dark they where taken at 11pm last night. My desk  is quite messy for me as I was card Making whilst waiting for my latest painting to dry and watching the last few days lessons to see what I'm going to do next...I like to multi task where possible !

arty angle shot ...- note interesting "shelf "for laptop- no where else to put it! 

long desk shot -lots of finished homework in folder for making into cards 

My latest project is at the front of the desk waiting to dry and be die cut next; as I stamped the sentiment at an interesting angle! ...We are on to free hand now.. eeek scarey.. no stamps or props to use. This was a splatterer technique -definately needs practice to get right !

Most recent card -sorry not quite this bright in real life -note to self stop taking photo's at night time with flash and artificial light ! 

I liked this lesson,in this one glimmer mists /sprays where used to paint with instead of using water.I used Mister Huey ...will be doing this again ...definitely 

I hope you have a great day and I'm now off to have a nosey before hubby gets up and we plan today's day out...will catch up over next few days although I am away tomorrow until Saturday Thanks for dropping bye it is very much appreciated and I will return the visit.Have a fab week crafty hugs Andrea x 

Sorry Julia got a bit carried away again ! would have been short and sweet if no photos ;-)

  10. Andrea, I am so proud of you.!. When this course started, you talked about being nervous about it and just look at you now! This is a wonderful medium for you. Each and every card is super, really super!! That tree card is killing me, it is so good even laying on your desk! I wish things would settle down for me to be able to get back to the lessons. I can't wait after seeing inspiration like this!! Enjoy your week off!

    Oh, are we exchanging ATCs? Do you have any extra? Would you like to? If you have sent yours all out, no worries, don't feel like you have to make another one. As I said on my post, I haven't even started mine. I'm not usually so last-minute, but I had to get my post up for Flat Susan and that was a lot of photos, plus there's lots of stuff happening with friends right now.

    Anyway, sorry for the book!! Thanks for coming by to visit me! Happy WOYWW and have a wonderful week!! Hugs, Darnell #29

    I was hoping to have more progress on the wall but alas time seems to be slipping by so quickly and all I have are sanded planks but It's a start
