Well, I very nearly didn’t bother today, as I have still been using my time to sort out the insurance issues with the minor car accident the other day.  Now it seems like it is getting resolved easily (except for having the car off the road, of course, while the repairs get done) so I figured rather than miss out taking part in WOYWW I’d pop up, quite late in the day for me, the shot I took last night and where I am at the moment.  Nothing amazing, but still…

Last night I had the base of the next file folder covered with paper and Gessoed…



…and by this morning I managed to get the modelling paste layer sorted and left to dry.  I used a cardstock stencil I cut from a Cricut image, layering decreasing circles of what I thin was basically one of those little Viewmaster die cuts



As you can see I couldn’t “wash” it, being made of paper. but I did scrape it pretty well, so I should be able to keep using it without the stencil being compromised.  I really like the pattern…



Then I had to pop out for the school run (and am just about to leave for the pick up then ice skating) but in the meantime I got most of the plan for the completed page sorted, some of the elements created and arranged, so it’s just sticking it down now.



The number strip was one I cut, as are the little chevron bots, and the title was from my sheet of prints.  The coffee filter doily was cut with the Cheery Lynn die I showed yesterday and I did find the brown filters, so you can see they DO produce a “kraft” coloured doily and I look forward to using them at some point, although not on THIS page.

Heard back from DH too, with the good news that the planned WOYWW crop, although conflicting with one of his chili cook-offs, shouldn’t be an issue.  Phew.  Now I just need to be thinking about my ATCs….. How did it come around so FAST?? I’ll possibly not manage too many visits today but will hope to meander around the desk-list over the next few days.
