Hello all and welcome to WOYWW,  the best blog hop around
blog land thanks to out lovely Julia at
She has been doing this for 4 years, its the anniversary today.
Grab a cuppa and have a good nose around at all the wonderful
artist on the blog hop.
I'm cleaning up now after making my monastery, have to put all my
Chinese things away to start my next project.
I had a little bit of gesso mixed with black water colour paint left,
from the monastery pics below this post.
I had a piece I had sprayed with shimmer inks on bubble wrap
then layed it on the card stock and left to dry overnight.
I used up the gesso by using a stencil , the right one has too much on it
the second on the left is better.
I put some on bubble wrap and layed it on my tag, then drop some
Ecoline burnt sienna and blew on it with a straw.
This is the first time using this colour and I think its my favourite now.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day..

Hi Dianne thanks for your lovely comment. The mysterious parcel on my desk is the tim holtz word play die! I've been wanting it for ages. I really pleased that it works with my cuttlebug with the long plates. Love your projects, the Tibetan one looks so authentique . Great work x

The shimmer inks on the bubble wrap piece are gorgeous. It's fun to use leftover stuff and see what happens. :) Happiest of WOYWWs to you (and thanks for visiting) ~ Laura #129

Oh this is so cool! Great job!

Lisa Richards said...

Oh, bubble wrap is how you do those dots, eh? I always wondered about that. (That's coming from someone who doesn't do stamping, so I'm pretty ignorant! lol!)
Have fun this week snooping around desks!
Happy WOYWW4!

I’m sorry to be late in visiting but I’m still on my quest to get round everyone this week. I know it’s going to take some time, but I wanted to say that it’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

Waste not want not as they say! I love the colour combination you were playing with.

Enjoy your weekly snoop, especially as we’re celebrating WOYWW’s 4th Anniversary.
Happy Crafting!

Wow! The monastery is absolutely amazing! And this piece of background is so cool. I've yet to try bubble wrap. After seeing how great yours is I may have to give it a go. If I can get the roll away from 'The Girls'. :) Thanks for the earlier visit. a belated Happy WOYWW4! Nan G #6
