Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 97

Well, here we are fellow WOYWW-ers! back at another review of work-desks on a Wednesday and for those of you who are wondering what I am muttering about - join in the fun by checking out our royal hostess'  Queen Julia's glorious blog at Julia's Stamping Ground!

Here you will see my desk is littered again. There are some completed cards to the top right. To see these and also the terrific Fat Cats Competition [with three $100 AUD vouchers to be won! -wohoo!] see here .

Also I'm playing with some glimmer mist Jazz Blue and cosmic shimmer Silver having read Brenda's Blog - Floral Fantasies and her workshop on mixing them. I ordered these two new colours to have play and I am hooked!! Thanks B.! if you want to see it look here for her helpful tutorial . I like the Cosmic shimmer better for for its high shimmer but think the Glimmer mists lighter glimmer has place too according to what you need so mixing the two is good.

The embossing folder embossed above in white is one from Fat Cats (which I have extended using my extended method to double the length - see here or sidebar labels if you dont know how to do this). A new one called Leaves & Butterflies K Kingdom Embossing folder 129, which has small embossed butterflies on it. Since I was also sent the Creatables Butterflies from Marianne I am hope to make some butterflies with the spare card I have coloured as well. I have used silver Cosmic Shimmer and Jazz Blue in Glimmer Mist.

Happy WOYWW everyone and may God bless you wherever you are..

Some lovely work on there for us to look at and I spy one of those cut and emboss folder cards in the top. Love those folders - so handy.
Love your sprayed pieces.

You are very industrious Shaz. I love the colour range you get with Glimmer mists, just about every shade under the sun but they are so expensive in the UK now, the Cosmic Shimmers are a cheaper option for us and work just as well although not so many colours. I just use my GM's more sparingly!!
Brenda's tutorials are great aren't they, she is such a talented crafter.

Hi. Great desk. Love the mbossed card with the tiny butterflies! They are fantastic dies those.
Thanks for the visit to my blog. In reply to your question, when I talk about plastic in some of my posts I generally have been referring to self adhesive metallic finish plastic that i have adhered to a sheet of card so not thick plastic! When I was up at the retreat we tried friendly plastic which worked on the bug but not tried it at home with mine!
I've used shrink plastic with my bug ok.
Have a blessed day

MaggieC said...

Thanks Shaz. I usually use Firefox, but I am having to use IE as well to see some people's piccies. It is driving me nuts. I think It is right at the moment.

ok you have to tell me how you do it. I bought one of the cosmic shimmers and i've only used it twice so far, every time i use it my hands end up the same colour as the bottle. I find it has quite a forceful spray as well, so end up getting quite big dollops of colour rather than a spritz effect.
love your cards
thanks for popping by earlier

Hi Shaz, thanks for visiting :-) I'm so interested in your glimmerings of various sorts. Haven't invested in them as mists, just made a couple of my own using Perfect Pearls or PearlEx with bonding medium added to the mix. You inspire me to do more with them. Lovely stuff on your desk - as usual.
Take care,
Ros #138

I love to work with Glimmer Mist. I haven't tried Cosmis Shimmer yet, but perhaps I should give it a try.

Being a writer and not a crafter I have no idea what glimmer mist Jazz Blue and cosmic shimmer Silver are. But they sound great! :)

Sorry I'm a bit late, been working on lots of projects and been on a date or two :)
