Returned from Virginia USA earlier in the week and the brain fog caused by jet-lag is clearing nicely. Sadly it hadn't done so in time for me to take part in the WOYWW anniversary on Wednesday - I even made the project specially before I went away, so that all I had to do was upload it when we got back. Duh, completely failed to remember until today ... so better late than never, here it is.
In case you're not a "Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday" afficionado, Julia asked us to celebrate the first anniversary by making something decorate which incorporated the WOYWW initials. My effort was this chunky ATC made from a wood block ...
I painted most of the wood cream, and then stamped on the block itself first before adding a coat of sealant over everything. I used all sorts of new stuff on this - some Paper Artsy stamps which I cut out and watercoloured, and the remains of some script tissue paper. The key on the side is made using a Tim Holtz die to which I added lots of layers of embossing powder until it looked really 3D. I also included some watch parts I've had for ages, and the quote just seemed to fit seeing as the block is a "box" which doesn't open! (I know what I mean).
As you can see the WOYWW logo is down there at the bottom, and the final detail was a clock face before adding another coat of sealant to finish off. Yes it's my usual cream/brown vintage thing ... I seem to keep coming back to it whatever.
I did manage just a teensy weensy bit of stash shopping while in the USA, but until I can find the lead for my camera can't upload the picture to show you - watch this space!
