Hello fellow Deskers! And if you're not a Desker - you're missing out - go over to Julia's and get involved - go on, you'll love it!
(Apologies for the weird lighting today - it is a GORGEOUS morning here in sunny Staffordshire (Note to Self: must put some washing in) so I've had to close the blinds or else all you'd see would be glare.)
Today I am mainly playing nice with a Julie Nutting (for Prima) Doll Stamp. I've got a couple of unfinished journal pages which I'm planning on giving a She Art style look so I'm playing at paper piecing a She to be the focal image of my Art. I love the look of text pages for faces (I really like how it worked with my Gorjuss girl mixed media angel here) so I'm seeing how that works with this stamp.
You know the saying "Necessity is the mother of invention"? Well... I thought I would have had an acrylic block big enough for the Doll Stamp amongst my vast selection of acrylic blocks but, incredibly, I didn't - sooo... I took the liner tray out of the tin I use for storing my Pitt Artist pens flat, turned it over ...
...and Bob's your uncle - THEEEE cutest stamping block ever!
Also on my desk today is my Tim Tags prize which arrived yesterday. The prize was a $25 credit to spend at one of Tim's sponsor's stores, so I chose Journeyman Tissue Tape, Traveller Tissue Tape, Idea-ology Word Bands and a Prima stamp. Thank you Tim! Oh I do love happy mail!
Whilst I remember - a couple of my lovely WOYWW visitors last week asked for a tutorial on the Faux Batik (resist) technique I featured in my post. Part 1 of the tutorial can be found here, a second post about the evolution of the journal page I was working on can be found here and Part 2 of the tutorial will appear as my next post - coming soon.
