Hello all you deskers, I know your snooping
around, seeing what going on, thanks to our
Miss Julia HERE who kindly host the best hop,
in blog land, so grab a cuppa and enjoy..
My DS brought me some sticky ribbon to use in my art.
I cut up a couple of time sheets ans stuck a sample of each. 

I'm sure they will look lovely as is but I wanted to
play a little with them, so I cut them up and put some
of my Tim's distress ink, I looooove the water spots.

The first one I did splash some water, I didn't wait for it
to dry so some of the paper came off, couldn't heat it,
that would have made it stick more..

I took the tape off then splashed the water, worked better.

I love how these turned out, I like them as a stencil better,
I don't have any good ones so this is kool..
Thanks for stopping by and see what I'm playing with..
Wishing you all a WOYWW  wonderful day...

What a good idea using the sticky ribbon as a stencil. No that gives me an idea of what to do with the peel off i have hanging around. Happy woyww jill #44

I just love the effect you got with those ribbons and the water drops - whew, I just love water drops. Thanks so much for visiting before Water Fit. We are just back from the Globe Theatre and it was terrific!!! The costumes gave me loads of ideas for vintage projects - the colours and the textures were great, I wish I could have just taken a little scrap of Lady Macbeth's linen nightgown: I bet it was tea-dyed, you know!!! Ha ha! have a great week! Julie Ann xx #56

I'm loving it!! How thoughtful of your son anyway, but also, you've so extended their lives too, the stencil idea is genius!

ooo these ARE fabulous and the water spots make them extra lovely!

I had been having some keyboard issues that were making me crazy...I could click with the mouse but was not able to type anything OY!

Mr M came to the rescue since I know nothing about those sorts of things...
happy to be able to 'say' something ♥
