WOYWW # 263

Back again, another Wednesday, another WOYWW! (See sidebar for more info!). My desk is REALLY messy today, as I was fooling around with sprays, mostly Dylusions, and some Distress Stains as well. I don't think the paper in this moleskin like either one of these products!

Hidden in this photo is the WOYWW 5th Anniversary ATC that I am supposed to send, but she never got back to me with her address! Now I have to figure out who it was!

Here are my latest 2 journal pages:

Playing with Dylusions, just couldn't get the effect Dyan does - I think it's the paper. The butterflies are 7G rub-ons, the stars and "embrace..." are Wendy Vecci. The ticket is Tim Holtz. Lots of stenciling in the background. For this next one, the turquoise was already on the page, and I thought black Washi Tape would be a good contrast.

The cat stamp is from Viva Las Vegas. The quote was from a "Quote-Stack" booklet. I tried to fool around with distress stains and paint in between the washi tape lines, but it looked horrible. But I like it now! Got a start on the next journal page with some scraps of paper:

 And last but not least, my WOYWW ATC from Kirsten Corby! This is so much prettier in "real life" - I tried several photos and this was the best one. Looks like fireworks!
Thank you Kirsten!

See you next time! Thanks for visiting!

WOYWW #261

I am (again) trying to make sure I hit this room AT LEAST once a day, even if it's just to tidy up! So today is Wednesday, time to share with other WOYWW's (see sidebar for more info!), and here is my desk this morning, at 9:20am:

I worked on my journal this week, and finished last weeks page as well. We went to a friend's farm on the weekend, and she used these napkins:

OK, how awesome is this napkin? Of course I asked for one to take home. . .(as we all do - don't we?)  And first thing Sunday night, I glued it to my next journal page as the background. What did it make me think of? India, so I chose this cool henna pattern stamp:

And went to work. Here is the journal page:

Complete with bling!

Last week I had a page that at first I hated:

I had just kind of thrown things together, and I really didn't like it

Then I fixed it!

What did I fix, you ask? Well, I changed her hat from "always" to "Music", because I had dreamt of music the night before, and I found the meaning of dreaming about music:"To dream of harmonious music is an OMEN of pleasure and prosperity." I can live with that! So, still not my fav page, but much better!

That's it for today, see you soon!
