What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #534

on my desk…

Hello my friends! First off, I want to apologize for not making it around to everyone last week. I was preparing my final project for a genealogy class I was taking and never made it around. Thank you all for stopping by and leaving a comment. But I will correct that naughty behavior today! I am off to my annual boob squeeze oops I meant to say mammogram so I will visit you all after my appointment.

On the brighter side, today is my youngest’s 12th birthday. Do I see chocolate birthday cake in my future? Yup! Can’t wait for him to come home from school so we can celebrate.

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 where we get to snoop on other crafter’s desks.

Moroccan Mosaic

Today I don’t have much to share. I am just cracking the seal on a few of the new products I shamelessly received over a month ago and haven’t had a proper play session. These are two new dies from the company Altenew.

This first one is called Moroccan Mosaic Cover Die and boy does it live up to my expectations. I used inexpensive cardstock to test it out and it is surprisingly very sturdy.

I played around with leaving some of the segments in for a different look.

I also think I can use some of the cut pieces the die left behind!

The second die is called Cross Stitch Canvas Die. I should have cut it out in off white bu I thought the brown would show up better on camera. I think fall when I look at this one and want to try to create something warm and fuzzy with it. Still flushing out some ideas.

Cross Stitch Canvas

On my desk you see two new adhesives I purchased.One is Pixie Spray so that I can use it with my delicate stencils to hold them in place when I ink or paint them.

The other adhesive is spray adhesive. Why spray adhesive you ask? Because that is the only way I will get something like the Moroccan Mosaic Cover to stick to a card front. I can’t wait to try it.

Well I am off. You know I am convinced a man designed the damn squeeze machine for mammograms and if that doesn’t give it away, what about the no deodorant or perfume the day of the test? I’m just sayin’… 🙂

Happy crafting my friends, I will pop by later this afternoon.
