WOWYWW .... Popping up all over

Hello fellow crafty people, another Wednesday and another WOYWW ... where does the time go.  I've missed the past couple of Wednesdays due to parent's evenings at school, but I was determined to have another go this week.

So today I've been playing on my silhouette portrait machine.  I love this device so much and since they have got a half price sale on files at the moment, I've been stocking up on some extra images.  My desk is relatively tidy but you should see the floor with all the bits of paper and other debris.  I really must hoover up here at the weekend!

So this is what I have been working on today.  It is a Lori Whitlock design and a birthday card for my son's friend.  I have used Clarity letterbox kit to do the name. 

Here are some more designs I've done over the last couple of days. 

 I really love box pop up cards and I've a few more ideas up my sleeves for future designs.  
Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday and hopefully I'll see you next week.

WOYWW ... Gelli-plate-tastic

Good evening fellow crafters, I've decided to plunge into the world of  WOYWW having been fascinated by other people's desks for sometime!  On my desk this Wednesday evening is mostly the results of my recent (i.e. Sunday and Monday night first-time play with my gelli-plate and various stencils.)

Bags of paints and my trusty silhouette.  You can also see some of my paper prints I used as rough paper which are quite nice too and might keep in as part of my stash. You can't see my most important crafty companion .. my radio.  It fell off my desk because there is too much on it and it is now residing underneath.  Still works and I have Jo Whiley keeping me company this evening.

Now I have been putting off this experimentation since last summer, but it was no good, I had to give it a go.  And what did I think you may ask? ..  I LOVED IT!  
This is just a small sample.  I currently don't have many stencils but I did improvise a bit, and made a couple of stencils myself out of card, using my Silhouette.

I love this one in particular.  You can't really see from the photo, but I used pebeo iridescent paint so it is all shimmery. 

So this evening I've been making backgrounds for a couple of tags I made a the weekend (see previous blog).  Hope you like them and thanks for stopping by. Thank you Julia for hosting this weekly event. x
