Have just returned from a wonderful holiday on the Isle of Wight and for the last couple of weeks my 'workdesk' has been my lap, a field, a camping table... and I've been very tidy and kept everything organised and in it's place - cos you have too in a tent lol!
The bag to the right contains my wools and crochet hooks - crochet is very portable (I crocheted some of those flowers whilst standing in a fish and chip shop queue on Cowes night!) so easy to take away on holiday.
My little craft bag is pretty portable too, with pencils, pens, paints and blank ATCs to hand. What you can't see is the small suitcase filled with other bits n bobs, and the jute bag that contained the little craft bag lol!
I decided to catch up on my ATCs whilst I was away. These were made using Dyan Reaveley's Altered Originals Spray inks (collection 1). I sprayed the card, allowed it to dry, then used a watery brush to merge the colours. The flowers are Daisy Daisy (Stampotiqu) from The Stamp Attic, coloured with a white gel pen.
I also had a bit of a play with my new Stabilo Woody pencils (a watercolour, pencil and wax crayon all in one). I picked these up in an art shop in London, but you can see them here, they are YuMMY! [think you're gonna love these Sue!!]
I scribbled with the blue and brown pencils, used a wet brush over them, then a walnut ink spray. I've wanted a white spray for AgEs and finally tracked one down at The Cubby Hole, Crewe. It's a Memories Mist in Whipped Cream and I used it with a Tim mask over my coloured card. A bit of stamping, a touch of collage and the ATCs were done!
Happy WOYWW! Looking forward to having a sneak at your workdesk, and if you're wondering where all this started, head over to the lovely Julia's Stamping Ground for the info :)
