WOYWW – making progress!


Another WOYWW – check out the blog and join in – it’s fun and always inspirational!

Still working on my little mini about love (go back to yesterday’s post to see the cover) but not done yet!

I had a happy accident that I think needs further exploration.  I had printed a photo on some cheap photo paper (just unearthed it while tidying and wanted to use it up) and the ink was taking forever to dry.  I had the pot of interference violet out as I used it on the wings on the cover so on a whim I dusted it over the still wet photo.  It makes the photo look a little dull tilted one way but tilted the other the iridescent violet really shows.  I think this could be a bit fun to experiment with! Not sure if it will show up but here are a couple of photos:

Since DD and DS are off out for the day I have high hopes for lots of WOYWW visits! And with luck I’ll finish this up in between hopping around the internet and post it tomorrow.
