Today what is on my WOYWW desk? all manner of goodies! First, do you visit Dan99? He is a super talented crafter, and I love his blog. We have chatted, virtually, a few times, and I am always fast to admire his work and recently made Bathtub Dan and sent it off to him, on a whim. I wanted to make another bathtub shrine and had the idea to make one using a funny image from his blog, so I did. It seemed the right thing to do to gift it to him. Well imagine my surprise when I got a lovely box from him yesterday. Having made the comment before that we were Kindred Spirits, I couldn’t have been more pleased to get this:
Isn’t it scrummy? and I LOVE how he signs his work:
What else? Well, I did a short online class from Carla Sonheim. I stumbled across her work and loved the unusual Gelli prints she makes – very different to most. She has a handful of techniques that I am not very good at but she inspired me to create a “tool” (and I use that only in the loosest sense) to help me achieve the look I wanted but seem incapable to doing they way she does.
My prints are nothing like hers, really, and I’m not 100% happy with them but I’m getting there.
There are areas that I love, like this bit from one of them:
I have to sort thru my photos, but I’ll share my tool tomorrow. Now I am happy with it, I just need to play a bit more so I can have some samples to share and explain the process. It’s not rocket science, but I found it helpful in getting the look I wanted. And I want to explore the possibilities a little bit more.
Off with DD for ice skating and shopping to fill the empty fridge today, but I’ll return any visits one way or another!
