So this is how my desk was this morning, I was trying to do a tag
and had the idea of using Tim Holtz tissue paper and doing a resist with clear embossing
powder, well we all have to learn somewhere lol, and I learnt that
how ever way I tried it, it didn't work. First off I was definitely having a
arty breakdown because I used distress paints, seriously, we all know the
whole point of acrylics it dries permanent so errrr that didn't work
(pictures are down at bottom as it made a fantastic resist on the copy paper lol)
and then I tried distress ink pads but they didn't want to stay on the tissue paper,
I really was doing something wrong lol, so guess what, I chucked
it all on the table and walked away. Grrrrrrrr
feel calmer now as I have a cleared desk ready for more playing. As it
is this evening I have tried to sort some more of the stuff in bags
and as you will see in the picture later I have sorted all my buttons and errrrr I have
a button addiction!!!! Do you?
Pretty much still a dumping desk of stamps from the weekend and
bits that are in the middle of being sorted, if I ever get there lol
hmmmmm still looking the same!!!! I have took some buttons
from the brown bags so that's some sorted.
At this rate I will never get started on crimbo :-)
The two big boxes below are all my 12by12 papers that are actually
full so some are now behind the back.
On top is my bigger punches in the purple box, then on top is
a box that needs emptying full of crimbo bits.
On top of the other box are crimbo 12by12 papers that have no chance of fitting
in the box and on top of them is some music fabric which
I will be working with tomorrow but can't show it until Saturday!!!
Hmmmmm button addiction
Beautiful gorgeous buttons
I love putting my hand through them all
(ok need to call for the boys with the white coats)
The paper is A4 which shows how big the box is
and errrrr it's pretty deep!!!
This is the paint resist, I had added the tissue wrap first then
I stamped with the large script from Tim Holtz Papillon
(think it's called that, I can't be bothered to look lol) with versamark,
then used clear embossing powder, then did the wrinkle free with
distress paints. When dried I used an iron, isn't the resist on the copy paper nice lol
Same except went over with distress ink pads, it must be the tissue wrap
(or more probable users mistake!!! lol)
Hey talking of Mr Holtz have you seen he is doing Chemistry 102
starting on 1st October :-)
I have also got some of his fabric coming as well, at last it's in the UK :-)
Right I better be off to bed, I shall be visiting tomorrow, determined to visit who I missed :-)
Thank you so much for following me, if you see any pictures that you want to ask more about then please email or comment and I shall try and help.
Happy Woyww :-)
Hugs Kezzy xxxxx
Note - just putting a link up for where I got the lovely frame from on this canvas in this post here, it's in France but the postage costs are quite cheap and I received it within a few days. The frames are wood and not expensive and they have loads of beautiful bits. Link - http://www.scrapdesirs.com/, I initially found out about this shop from Lin Brown over at Yours Artfully and wow and the way she uses the frames are amazing :-)
