WOYWW 372

Good morning desk hoppers!

Today I'm delighted to hear that Julia is back at The Stamping Ground for this weeks WOYWW after an enforced rest. I know Jan at LunchladyJans' blog did a sterling job in her absence so do remember to pop over and say Hi to her too. If you want to know more.. have a look at their blogs.

Meantime, after an enforced absence myself, I am pleased to be back in the hot deskers company to show you my latest vision of untidiness!

Today I am working on a mixed media mirror that I am altering. I have covered the mirror with wet kitchen roll to protect it while I mess about with paint and mists.. there's still a way to go yet but here it is so far.. I'll do a full blog post about how I did it later in the week, so why not become a follower to see the end result?

I've also been very busy with making some mixed media scrapbook layouts too and this is one of my latest ones here which I created using the Funky Flair Mood Board for July. Funky Flairs are an Australian business that sell lovely hand made flair badges and have a wonderful selection. You can find them on Facebook.


I also made this layout here for a sketch challenge group I'm in..the reval isn't for a week or two but only one of the group members visit my blog so I think I can get away with it? lol



Anyway.. that's it for this week.. I'm off for a blog hop to see all the other desks too.. have a wonderful (very hot if you're in the UK) day and I'll see you all next time.

  1. Morning Elaine. Golly, you have been SO busy - your work is beautiful - well done. I love the colours. I actually bought myself a canvas the other week thinking I would try this mix media altering.... still a blank canvas... perhaps I've got a few ideas today. Think I'm scared of all that white!!!
    Take care. God bless.

  5. Thanks for your visit earlier. Have to wait until tomorrow to get into the Craftroom.
    What beautiful layouts! I had a sneaky look at some of your previous posts, very inspirational. I love the way you make each page look like a 'stand alone' artwork.
    Have a good week

  26. Happy Belated WOYWW. I have just started with mixed media, so am at the stage of randomly spraying/brushing/dabbing on paint/ink etc onto pages and hoping for the best. Or is that how all mixed media is done?! Your projects are gorgeous. Ali x #30
