WOYWW - Week 349

Happy Wednesday Deskers,

This is my desk today.  I'm working on a particular project and have done lots of messy crafting trying to get the effect I wanted for the shield.

I thought about silver then settled on gold.  I've not worked with digi images before and am rapidly running out of  the ones my hubby printed out for me.

I would have liked to use acetate and gilding flakes but as I don't have a whole sheet of acetate to go through the printer have finally decided on a gold Krylon pen which seems to be working alright.  Now just to sort out the raised dots.

I'm linking up with the Stamping Ground where our hostess Julia invites us all to show what is on our desks on Wednesday then whizz around the globe snooping at others  work desks.  It really is a lot of fun.

A couple of weeks ago when I showed my desk I was making some ATCs.  So thought you might like to see them finished.
 
Have a good week Everyone!

That looks an interesting project, Barb. I like the look of the palette with the gold and silver stuff. Your ATCs are lovely! Really pretty.

Thank you for your lovely comment. Glad you like my tea page. I'm sure your x-stitch group is just as nattery as my KnitterNatter group lol! Looking forward to tomorrow's meeting and will have to sort out something to take along.

Happy WOYWW,

So cute, Barb! I like your ATCs! It was fun to see your desk and what you're working on!

Erika said...

You current project looks very intreguing. We always need something we haven't got don't we?
I'm loving your ATC's, great backgrounds and super flowers.

Hugs Erika. x

Hi Barb, that's a busy desk, looking forward to seeing your finished make, Kate x

OH you have lots going on here. Good luck with the Krylon pen. I've seen some beautiful looks with that product, but I can never get a nice thin line with it (the Pentel gold Slicci pen is working better for me). Also my Krylons seems to dry up too fast. This gold look is intriguing, can't wait to see it finished. And loving your Flower ATC's too. Your desk is pretty tidy for all the crafting you've got underway. TFS

I had to click on the first pic to see the shields better. Very cool! I think I have a gold Krylon pen somewhere.... And the finished ATCs are very pretty! Thanks for the visit and hope you have a great day!

Fun ATCs! It seems like a number of us are fussing with them this week. Those krylon pens are hit and miss but you are master of it. Thanks for the visit earlier and yes those very clean stamps are the collage ones I admire but never use.

Sharon said...

Thanks for showing the finished ATCs. They are beautiful. So spring-like. I like the gold look on your wings - looks very nice.

Happy WOYWW

I really like your ATC's, with those bold and beautiful flowers. I'm really intrigued by your winged shields and wondering what you're going to do with them. Thanks for your visit and blessings!

Cara said...

Lovely ATC's I would say they look earthy and organic, but that would be a bad pun! Your desk looks very interesting, looking forward to seeing the finished result. Cara x

Lisca Meijer said...

What an interesting project. The shield looks great in gold. And those ATCs are lovely with the flowers.
Congratulations on the first anniversary of your blog. And thanks for doing a giveaway. I've linked in.
By the way, I have tried to become a follower (the google friends direct with all the photos)but I keep getting a message that says: "this webpage has a redirect loop".
Thank you for your lovely comment,
Have a good week,
Lisca

Hey Barb, thanks for the visit. My hunk is causing a stir. He's part of a birthday card for a friend! Who is super fit and very gay! I LOVE the shield..I like the colours in your palette too. The ATC's are very cute. I would quite like to come and have a general rummage on your desk..there are fun things for me to play with! Cx #46

Sounds such fun - can't wait to see end result. like the tags as well.

Julia Dunnit said...

I can't get over how clean and well cared for your Pearl Ex pallette is. Mine is used in workshops admittedly, but wow! The Krylon certainly IS working well, there's really nothing like it is there!

Kelly said...

Pretty ATCs. A tip for using partial sheets of acetate... print out on regular paper, then tape your partial sheet of acetate over the image you printed. Adhere it with painter's tape and make sure the edges are taped down good. Good luck! Creative Blessings! ~Kelly #42

Angela Radford said...

Hi Barb
You've got me itching for a long armed heart punch now. The long arm stapler is great I don't know why it's taken me so long to get one.
Your ATC's are lovely, you are talented
Have a great week
