WOYWW 251

Good morning all you wonderful Woywwers.
Today I'm going to be good and keep this short to please the Lady Julia who hosts this wonderful crafty community.
So on my desk you will see that, having chanced on Dianne's WOYWW last week, where she was stamping after bleaching, I had a go at stamping with bleach, with varying success. What I did find was that the images and words that you can stamp with bleach need to be fairly bold with clear lines. As as result, I have only managed really successfully with the  sentiment 'Thinking of You' as the Happy Birthday and other sentiments have not come out very well. (Never mind I will have lots of bereavement card available when I have finished) It is well worth having a go this technique because the results can be amazing. Stamping on the brown produced the most wonderful bronze images and the stamped image on the purple is almost silver.
Well that's me for another week
Happy WOYWW everyone.

Woyww 250

This Wednesday morning sees my desk abandoned.  I have finished the last card I was making and have visitors so nothing is going on at all.
We are off out for a day on our narrow boat,
so probably won't be visiting until this evening or tomorrow.
If you want to see some exciting desks,  visit  Julia who kindly hosts these desk exposures
Have a great day

Woyww 249

Morning everyone.
My worktop today shows a few bits I've been working on, trying to get them done before today as I hospital appointment and tests occupying all morning and some of the afternoon, so may not be up to doing any visiting until Thursday. Forgive me if I don't return your visit until after the weekend.

At the front is a card for my grandson who is 13 on Sunday, he adores anything to do with tigers, so tiger print paper and colours were the order of the day.
To the left of the card are die cuttings from the die that was on my desk last week, free from Simply cards and Papercraft. Very useful die.
Back right are two pieces done with the mask that was also on my desk last week, both done with embossing paste and assorted glitter scattered over it. And back left are some book pages for a craft club swap using book pages. Not sure where that is going yet.
And if you have just found this page by chance and are wondering why I am blathering on about my desk, just visit the desk lady herself to see numerous exciting crafty desks.

And just to finish off with, yesterday was a beautiful spring day in North Wales and Max was making the most of the sunshine, indoors.
Have a great WOYWW day

WOYWW 248

Not much happening on my worktop today, only got back from holiday yesterday and just dumped the craft bits I bought in various places, mainly in Penrith.  There is a beautiful Dream Weaver feather stencil,  a freebie Happy birthday die cutter from a magazine,  another Spellbinder die that wasn't cheap,  some silver ribbon,  peel offs, lots of reels of thread, making bags uses rather a lot, and some knitting wool.
At the back is a part made card that I have to finish for the lady who feeds my pussy cat when we are away. Apart from finishing that I'm not going to have a chance to do much crafting today,  as we have been away I  have loads of ironing to do and other things to catch up. Must get on with it or OH will nag. Maybe I can do some visiting later.
However,  you can take your time surfing through a plethora of good crafty worktops if you go to our host Julia and I will attack the ironing mountain.
Happy Woyww
Chris :)
