WOYWW #149

Happy WOYWW! Drop by Stamping Ground and Julia will tell you how you too can snoop around some of the awesome desks! Hope you had a great holiday and enjoyed time with friends and family. I fixed dinner and my daughter and her husband came to have dinner with us. I miss not having a big family any more cause I used to enjoy the times we got together to share and catch up on what was going on in our families.
Not a lot going on on my desk today. I did make a couple Easter cards but forgot to photograph them before sending them on their way. I have a bad habit of doing that! I bought some canvases yesterday to make wall decor for my kitchen and was going to gesso them tonight but ended up going over to my daughters and watching a movie.
I have been having fun playing with the VerDay Paints and Patina and seeing what I could do with them. Yesterday I took copper and brass metal and cut flower shapes out using Sizzix dies and the Big shot. After I cut them out I ran them through the Big Shot in an embossing folder, painted them with the VerDay Patina and let them sit over night. I love VerDay cause it actually oxidizes the paint (it has metal in it) and metals to such a beautiful color then when I used the grit block on them the polished up so nice!
I have another project for Ten Second Studios coming out today and will be posting that later today...Also visit their site at Ten Second Studios and check out all the fun stuff that Cheryl and Megan are making using the VerDay Paints.

  7. Hi Vickie. WOW what an awesome workspace you have. Its so colourful and inspiring, with lots of your crafty tools right in front of you. I really must re-think my room. Having crafted for many years I have a cupboard full of goodies, which are stored reasonably well in labelled boxes. Its the two sets of storage drawers and the items around the floor that need to be stored in a more accessible way. TFS............Annie :)

  21. I do like the flowers, great paint..I like that it comes in more than one colour so you can kinda oxidise with control!! What's the plan for the kitchen then...differing sizes of canvas means you have an idea, and I'm intrigued. Mind you, I'd drop it all to watch a movie with my gal, too.

  33. Hi Vickie, I'm late this week, been away with family. Loving your flowers, I must try that technique...now where did I put my metal sheeting?! Have an even better Friday the 13th!

  34. Hi Vickie. I'm still plugging away at the list as I usually do...never set myself the challenge of visiting in one day.
    Love the desk, and I guess the boxes contain the canvasses. Here's a useful homily - if a tidy desk is a sign of a tidy mind, what is an empty desk? Oh well, I'm fine with never clearing the desk, LOL.
    Best of all is what you've done with the sheet metal and Verday paints. I love that look after it's all buffed. Have not seen these paints so have some sleuthing to do. Fab job, Vicki.
