What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #490

Good morning my crafty WOYWW friends! For those of you that aren’t familiar with WOYWW (What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday), head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and you will find desks from all around the world for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday where we get to snoop on other crafter’s desks.

Hello! I am not scheduled to post today since I have been trying to post at least every other week but I looked at my hot mess express desk today and said to myself, “Why not?”.

So let’s dig into this clutter. On the left you see my pitcher filled or should I say stuffed with Stampin up markers and some paint brushes. My goal is to move the markers and only have brushes in there since I have been using them a lot more to paint.  Below that, you see my latest purchase – floral wire and tape for an upcoming craft project. Right beside that are some flowers I colored up and need to be placed on a card.  You can also see a completed card peeking out from under the paper cut files from my Silhouette. I am working on a Japanese maple so I need to color them up before assembling them into a home decor item. You can also see some printouts on Copic x-press paper to be colored for a custom order I am working on. I grabbed my container with some of my 6×6 Christmas paper for color combination inspirations. I didn’t clean up my paint from two weeks ago (yes, I said 2) so you can see that and the dirty paint brushes. You can also see a really cool book pin my husband bought me. I am a bit of book nerd and love all things book related.

As I mentioned, I am working on a custom order so I will take a few days to get around to visit your desks.

Have a blessed day and keep crafting!

30 Day Coloring Challenge #4: Day 30 – Distress Inks Meets Copics

logo

Hello Everyone! I did it!! I completed my 30-day Coloring Challenge. It took me a while to get to Day 30 but here we are and I am really happy I tried this challenge again.

day30a I pulled out my distress inks, cardstock tag, a stencil, a digital stamp and my Copics to create my day 30 project. I have had these tags around for a long time and this seemed like the right time to break one out and use it as a base for the project.

day30bI taped the stencil down so that it wouldn’t move while I put down the distress inks. I selected three colors: Cracked pistachio, fossilized amber, and abandoned coral.

day30cI love how these colors blend and compliment each other. They definitely remind me of Easter so I think it was a perfect selection for the digital stamp I selected.

day30dWhen I removed the stencil I just loved the result. Apollo happened to be in the room and said he wanted me to make an additional one he could use for a bookmark. What a pretty bookmark this makes too.

day30eI also grabbed this mini card set from my recent Michael’s Haul from the Recollections’ Color splash line. It already had the sentiment on it so all I needed to do was add color. So I used the same three distress inks.

day30fI love that I can use the distress inks on these products too.

day30gI picked this Saturated Canary digital stamp to add to the project. I had this already cut out. I often cut digital stamps out in varying sizes so that I can use them on different projects so this one was the perfect size for a tag.

day30h I used my Hex Chart to find coordinating colors in my Copics stash to use to color her up.  The final product came out so cute. It’s a vary happy tag and makes me think of spring, Easter and joy!

I will be creating one last post with a wrap-up of the 30 days for this coloring challenge. I enjoyed it and love all the fun things I was able to make with my commitment to color for a minimum of 10 minutes each day.

Happy coloring friends!

30 Day Coloring Challenge #4: Day 27 – ‘Live in the Moment!” card

logoHello! I know…this challenge ended March 1st but I missed a few days so I am seeing it through to the end so my days will be off.

Today I finished coloring the Saturated Canary image from yesterday and made a card with her. day27a I still don’t like how the blues blended in her dress but decided to complete the card anyway.

I used up old supplies from my stash like this lovely acetate cover that I put on top of the card with glue dots. I love how it frames her. I colored in a sky and a ground and stamped it with a sentiment from another Flourishes stamp set.

day27aI am off to go make dinner but will be back with day 28 tomorrow! Happy coloring my friends.

30 Day Coloring Challenge #4: Day 26 – Garden Sadie card complete!

logoHello day 26!! The first thing I did this morning after dropping off the boys at school, was come home and make a cup of tea. After that I headed over to the polls and cast my vote for the Primaries. I always feel a bit emotional when I have the opportunity to vote. It is a blessing that I never take for granted and always take seriously. I usually bring the boys with me but they were in school today so I went alone. Holding a ballot in my hand and standing there marking my choices and thinking about all the people that made this possible for me, was pretty heavy for my morning. Hence why I had a cup of tea before going. Nonetheless, I am once again thrilled with the opportunity to vote.

After that I headed to my craft table to complete my Gardening Sadie card.  I used one of those extra embossed cardstock from a previous card to be her background. Then I used my MISTI to add this lovely sentiment from a Flourishes stamp set. Another great stamp company that closed down.

day26aI used ‘Grape Jelly’ Momento ink for the sentiment.

day26bI added Sadie and this card is another clean and simple design that makes me smile. I hope you like her too.

Then I got started with another image. This one from Saturated Canary and I think she is called Kite.

day26cUsed my trusty Silhouette to cut her out and started coloring her. Not so thrilled with the way the blues are blending but will keep working with it and see what happens after I let it set for a while.

day26dI will finish coloring her tomorrow and share the finished card with her on it.

Have a blessed day!

Belinda
