WOYWW 88

Yes; it's that time of the week again! Everybody heads over to Julia at the Stamping Ground to see what everyone is getting up to on their desks.
Today there is nothing finished to show you just a whole lot of bits so here goes!

What do we have here? In the middle are some test runs of my new embossing folders and then there are some other idea-ology bits that I haven't packed away yet. On the left is some metal tape which I got at Stamperama too so I can finally get to use my memory glass which I've had for ages but not used in case it broke! (They are on the left) So, in preperation for that my tin of alcohol inks is sitting on my tray of bits and bobs (Which is looking remarkabley tidy as I have just sorted it out!)
Then at the back in the little plastic tub are some die cuts, in copper, gold and silver that I cut last night

I'll post about these later in the week, as they are pretty cool. You'll have to wait and see what I do! You can just see a tag in the right of the photo.  That was playing with gilding flakes for the first time. Amazing stuff.

So, there you have it. My desk today. Now i'm off to look at some desks.........
Be blessed in your art today

Your desk seems to have all you need...lovely Valentine project in the previous post....if you go to Paper Craft Planet to check out the bow tying tutorial, you may have to join first (just a formality). Then go to Tutorials and scroll down a bit. It isn't under "B". I think under "H" for How.... Lol. Enjoy your WOYWW tour.... And thx for visiting!

I keep meaning to have a go with gilding flakes, but every time I find they are sold out. One of these days.......

Pure Patience you must have it in abundance to use guilding flakes! I've got some and make the most enormous mess when using them they are so feather light and have a life of their own.

I've just discovered your blog and had a bit of a look around and just love your style, it's very unique. I'd like to present you with a Stylish Blogger Award, please stop by my blog and collect it.

Cheers,

Kasey

Loads of fun, I've used gilding but not in flakes on tissue and on acetate roll, a lot easier to use and used it with gilding size too which is another lazy tool. love you stash soo fascinating and also love your verse a day too,

Love your desk its so organised everything seem to have a place - when I get new things I have to have a play before I put them away - never tried gilding - from a fellow Kent crafter ~ Nicky no.9
