I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

WOYWW 170

I'm going to post and run, I'm afraid (two posts in fact if you fancy a browse...) but our lovely hostess Julia Dunnit at the Stamping Ground feels brevity is the soul of wit for these What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday posts, and for once I'm going to oblige.  Here's what's on my workdesk today... and if you visit Julia's list, you can go and visit lots of other crafty workspaces, and nose around to your heart's delight!



I'm doing the Andy Skinner Timeworn Techniques course online at the moment - and this is  something I'm in the middle of applying the Verdigris, or Aged Copper process to.  


It did look like this to start with, so it's going okay so far... but there are at least three more stages before I'm done!






Have a wonderful W, especially if you're hopping, and I'll try to catch as many Ws as possible later today...

The things most people want to know about are usually none of their business.

Lisa West said...

Great to have found you through WOYWW. I just love your stamping posts, tags and book cover. What a fun technique. I've tried a few resist techniques but I'm not sure what the THoltz requires. I'll have to check it out because the results are gorgeous. Thanks for popping over to visit me. Lisa

Love your little crate and the verdigris is looking great. Don't forget to show us the finished article. Had a quick peek at your later post as I love the Serena stamp - a favourite in my collection but not used for a while. Now I've seen yours I must give her another airing.
Thanks for visiting me yesterday - little late getting round the desks as we have been packing - leaving in an hour.

I almost missed you this week Alison, so glad I saw your name in the list. This verdigris is looking good, cannot imagine what you are going to end up with if there are more stages.

Look forward to the final peek.

Hugs, Neet 84 xx

It really is looking great. I have a close look and you would never believe it started off yellow and smooth. Can't wait to see it finished.
Have a great week.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Is that a plastic bin? If so, I'm impressed with the coverage and how it no longer looks plastic. Very cool! Well, I guess we'll stay tuned on what it is all about.

Sue from Oregon said...

Love your 'butterfly' name and also your wonderful creations. The tag with the little tag and heart is very cute!

KatzElbows said...

It's all looking great already, so I'm looking forward to the finished product.

Thanks for stopping by. I've been too busy with a chest infection to work on my to do list, but I have hopes for the next week!

Have fun,
