Here’s my K page for the Chunky Alphabet swap, which also happens to fit into the PDCC 46, which is a Colour Splash (Black and white with a splash of Gold, Pink or Copper). I’m not over pleased with it because it didn’t work out exactly as planned but I really don’t have time to play around with it right now. ( I managed to sneak an hour yesterday to make this, lol – hope to get to the next two letters later in the week!)
And K for knots, he, he!

Back to J again for my 4x4 pages and although I stayed with the J for Jigsaw theme, I added a Japanese slant this time.

Found the latest GPP Street Crusade yesterday and just had to have a go – especially cos my mind was in turmoil over something at the time. The brief is to use acrylics in journal pages but using only a scraper – or old Credit card/store card – and maybe some stencils of some kind.
I gessoed my altered book pages first, using an old credit card, then applied the paints in layers, spritzing with water now and again, followed by stencilling using a fern stencil I love but haven’t used very often. It’s a metal stencil so I couldn’t move it around enough to get random ‘off the page’ imprints, which I would have liked.

This week’s Challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers is Clean and Simple.
I don’t do a lot of CAS because I love to play with inks, but I do really enjoy simple card designs now and again. I’ll be making a DT card for the ‘Spotlight’ part of this challenge, but couldn’t resist making a couple of very clean and simple cards for fun.

Been busy getting ahead with these two Alphabet swaps the last couple of days, so I don’t have to worry too much in the next couple of weeks – best laid plans of mice and men? I’m rushing and it shows, but these are my swaps for G & H

… and Frame and Flutterby (well, that’s what I call ‘em, lol)
The Bank Holiday this week has made the days seem to come way too soon. Can’t believe it’s Wednesday already!! It’s time to SNOOP - WOOHOO!!! If you don’t know yet what What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday is all about (and you really, really SHOULD DO) then pop over to Julia’s blog to spy on what everyone’s revealed this week. It really is a lot of fun!! (Oops, I've put the wrong number up there, so my link is taking people to the wrong entry - duh! My apologies - this is WOYWW 65, lol!
Anyway, here’s a snippet of my desk this week, which actually contains a WIP (Work in Progress), lol. NOT showing my whole desk this week cos very little has changed, apart from the fact that it’s probably worse than it was!!!!!
That stamp of grasses you can see to the left hand side is one of my favourites, although I don’t use it too often because it’s pretty limiting. Mum sent it from New Zealand, so I treasure it and I may now have the perfect excuse to use it again.
This may well be my last WOYWW for a while now – not sure yet of the date but I’ll be starting a Full time Course this month and I suspect it will be next week or the week after but I have LOADS of stuff to sort out and to deal with before then, especially after 4 weeks of my OH being home, therefore doing absolutely NAFF all in the house!!! I’ll miss you all.
Thanks to everyone who’s left comments in the last few weeks – I really appreciate your kind words and your sense of fun. I’ll try to get round to you all this week!
