Workdesk Wednesday 12 May
This week my desk is under a pile of fabric. I quite fancy the idea of making my own embellishments / flowers out of materials but found it quite difficult to find anywhere with decent scraps. I ended up finding upholstery fabric at a small haberdashery but the colours are all quite dark. Now they are in front of me I'm not sure where to start!
I have also had a "brainwave". After buying some new frames for my wedding photos I thought I'd have a go at altering the old ones (which I hate). BTW - 13 year of married life today - not bad eh?
I painted with acrylic paint, crackle glazed and then distress inked. I really dont know what to make of the result at the moment - maybe I need to add something else....
Last but not least, I have made another bookmark / tag or two for up and coming birthday's. My yacht was cut out of grungepaper, painted and crackled and placed on a stamped backgroud of nautical type stamps. My friend is a boat fanatic and used to be in the Navy. He's quite poorly at the moment and its his birthday next week so I hope this will cheer him up a bit!
Right! What to do with this fabric......
