I'm not sure what happened to April but I can't believe that it is nearly over. There has been very few lovely Spring like days - but plenty of April Showers!
Well back in the cozy spare room you will find my little work space and as it is a Wednesday it is time for this weeks peak at the desk. Once again joining Julia at Stamping Gound to look at the creative workdesks around the world.
This is what my desk looked like this morning - however here is a quick overview on how it got this way!
There is one big change this week... I emptied the bin on the desk (but it has started to fill again LOL)!!!! but it did not make it far... the rubbish is now in a bag sat on the floor by the desk LOL.
My desk is quite busy this week, I want to make a 'Moving House' type card for a friend and I had a few ideas. One was to use a set of dies with a fence & birdhouse, I wanted to hand the birdhouse from the tree I had - but this looked naff - in the end you see that I used the fence & tree to create a Easel Card which is sat on the corner of the desk.
I then decided to cut another set of fences/birdhouse - this time using Colour Core card and after embossing the dies I sanded the raised area away - maybe these will work better - and I found 2 wooden doves in my stash.
In search of elements for the 'Moving House' card I then stamped and started to colour images that came with one of the magazines last year. I plan to cut them out and mount them somehow on a card... I think... maybe... sort of!!!
I then decided to try and use some of my Mica pigments through a mask to create a background on black paper. I was pleased with the results... but not really use if they will get used or not (do you feel a theme building here???)
By this time I got a bit fed up of trying things... and not really knowing what I wanted. So I decided to re-organise my brads/eyelets (this is just one box of 5!) I found the best way to move things from on compartment to another was to use a plastic spoon (which was still on the desk).
All in all this week has been very creative - if not totally productive :)
