WOYWWD

Well, I blinked and missed the weekend somewhere because Lo, and Behold... it is Wednesday again! I am now officially artist-in-residence in my little room upstairs and my hands are void of any natural skin tones and looking very Picasso. Tomorrow I'm having a manicure - might be there a while...
Two offerings for you today. Not showing the desk ...and yes the camera does lie. My desk always looks OK on the snapshot but in reality it is a minefield and everyone tells me it looks just fine. Do come and visit if you don't believe me - just don't sign your name in the dust please.
Lots of metal roses around today... Here is a small canvas I made for a friend which will soon be on it's way over the Channel.

 I stamped onto both sides of some TH fragments which gives depth to the images. The background is harder to see in the piccy, but there is a bit going on - stamping, perfect pearls and glimmer mists.


Here is a close up of my rose. I like to emboss with different designs as I think it makes for a more interesting effect on the petals. Swiped and wiped with a black dabber. Cut the leaves free-hand.



Stamps all by Paper Artsy except for the butterfly (Crafty Individuals).



I also entered my first design Challenge ever - by Simon Says Stamp and Show. Yes, indeed - my very first! I did say I was a bit of a novice in this world - so to me it is all very new! I blogged about it on Monday as I had a deadline to meet but I thought you might like to see it. It is my version of a project from the CH course.




Just great for all those little orphan paper scraps that lie alone at night in the drawer.





You can read more about it on Monday's blog of this week.


Hoping to get to see lots of your work-desks, creations and thoughts.
Farewell for now, Sarah.

Nice rose. I've never made one, so I'm totally impressed. But I'm also impressed with your "orphan" (love how that describes so many tiny pieces of paper) scraps. Pretty unique, I think. Happy WOYWW.
