Well, yes! predictably it’s Wednesday here, which means WOYWW or What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday over here at Julia’s... AND it’s the 25th!
Exactly one month till Christmas!?
How does that happen? And so it’s the last 2020 Rudolph Day or Christmas challenge at Scrappy Mo’s until the 30th Nov.
Firstly to my desk on Monday night. At the weekend I was watching Eileen Godwin with her Lavinia videos, using masks and gesso... so as I watched I found myself hunting out masks, gesso and two snippets a strip which became the sunflower and one of the stitched rectangular pieces left from frame making for the holly.
And oh! did I have fun when I should’ve been doing other things.
Technique explained: First ink dusted a base colour with Distress Inks all over on the masked piece allowed it to dry then decided it was too dark, so spritzed it with water and dabbed off with paper towel, finally happy so let it dry again.
So here on my desk I lined up the masks yet again in right spots (not easy!) to add more colours and depth for dimensions. To the holly I added the red pearl drops to great effect.
This is closer to real colour than card photographs below, too.
To sunflower added blue watercolour sky. It was longer scrap of card but cut it down for snippets frame made with Scrapdragon 5 x 7” dies set.
Sharing another Christmas card made some weeks back - it’s with the Sweet n Sassy Silhouettes set, like the holly card, using the Christmas tree on this one. Used gold ink stamping on this too. This card adding to Beccy’s challenge along with holly one to help her beat last year’s record entries.
You can win this die at my tenth Blogaversary blog candy over here!
This was the card that was supposed to be on last week’s desk, I did get it off in good time along with another early Dec birthday.😊
Onto the Aussie photos today... some to begin with from walk yesterday.
Well, that’s it for today. Praying much for all in USA, UK, France and many other countries to be kept safe and for God to watch over all whom you love.
