Yes, it's wednesday again, where does the time go? Time to see what's on the desks of the world again over at Julia's blog Stamping Ground. . My desk is looking a bit tidier this week (if you don't look at the piles of stuff lying on the shelves above!)
There's a couple of finished items and some preperation pieces. Next to the tray are some thick chipboard book covers. Just covered in thick gesso and a bit of ink at the moment. In the middle is a "tattered" book and on the right are a couple of little note pads and some corrugated card waiting to be used (Or filed!)
Want a closer look at the book?
I used corrugated card for the covers; coloured with colourwash. Attached to that is a distressed piece of dictionary paper, an embossed alterations tag. Old tape measure, some grunge "waste" . Idea-ology sprockets and a fanciful flight butterfly in gold and copper. I tore card in olive green for the pages inside.
Then a close up of the two little note pads. A bargain at 25p each so I made a couple of embossed covers for them and bound with the Zutter. Quick and simple upgrade!
So there's my desk today. Hope you have a good day and are blessed in your art.
