Hi - I've been having a bit of a sort out so my pics this week are not of my desk really, more of my storage - this is a before pic - a pile of stuff that seems to grow overnight and hide my very nice wicker draw unit which is really too good for shoving in the corner
so..off to the local catalogue store I went..you know the one...and all my mess stash is now safely tucked away in here...
and my nice wicker unit is now in the front room !
I do have a card on my desk that I made last night - had another go at a cutesy card with a magnolia stamp - a style I've struggled with in the past, but this one I'm quite happy with -
I used this sketch which is the Just Magnolia Challenge this week, Basic Grey Paper, Hero Arts flowers, sissix die cut leaves, ribbon, flower beads, wire, pearls and buttons from my stash.
The stamp is Alva with Flower and I have stamped and paper pieced using scraps of paper from my stash. Face, hair, hands and flower painted with Distress inks. I've not tried paper piecing this detailed before and although it was sooooo fiddly am pleased with the result. Even the background is paper pieced as I used double sided, cut a circle from the middle, turned it over tand fitted it back in.
Well if you want to join in the fun and have a nosey at other people's desks, get yourself over to 'The Stamping Ground' where our auspicious host Julia always has a warm welcome (see link on my sidebar)
Thanks for popping by - I managed about 50 desks last week, which is record for me and enjoyed everyone of 'em....Happy WOYWWing everyone, have fun .....Esther xx
