WOYWW? WEEK 252..

Hello my Lovelies, Wednesday  again, my favorite day, grab a cuppa and join us at Miss Julia, the hostess with the mostess for buckets full of inspiration here.. 

                                    My desk is all full up...


 I took a few piece of mixed media paper, cut them into tags, I applied gesso to two of them and stuck them together, then peeled them apart, Miss Alison from Words and Pictures did this and got some gorgeous patterns on it.

 I just started to ink these ones with Tim's inks..
 The one on the right is just inks, the other was first swirled in Tim's paints then inked on top, then I dropped water all over them..
I then went lightly over it with Inca Gold..

 My new stamps I won from Paper Arts for my mask I entered, there are so many beautiful stamp sets to pick from I thought I would get the most use of this set, for background and lots of great sentiments, I can't wait to use them...

This is my the project I'm working on, a friend asked me to revamp her wreath. I've taking it right to the bare ring and will start again, all those pine cones were stuck in there with strong, long wire, yikes my hands were killing me by the time I pulled them off, I could only save a few, I washed them, they closed back up, so I put them in the oven at 250 degrees, sprinkled some cinnamon on them to make them smell nice.I left them in for about an hour they are all open and smell great... Sorry so much for short and sweet post, not an easy thing for this chatty magpie to do :O) ....
Thanks so much for stopping by my nest, I'll be snooping around later today, and will gladly visit anyone who stops by..
Have a wonderful day.... ((( BIG HUGS)))...

                                           NAMASTE !!!

LOL, you and me both! I could ramble on for ever - it's hard to try and keep the post to a reasonable length!
Anyhow, isn't that gesso technique simple but clever? The first pic of it looks like frost patterns on a wintry window :-) I love the colours you've used too.
Good luck with the wreath!
Hugs, LLJ 8 xx

Ooh! Those poor little magpie claws having to take that wreath apart! But Mmmn, I love the smell of cinnamon. I can just imagine how gorgeous your kitchen smells from it. I love what you did with the Gesso. I must try that. My daughter has been really ill for the last two days - a reaction to Antibiotics that don't agree with her so it's been a worrying time, but she's on the mend now. I had to make her something to cheer her up which I'll blog at some point! A visit to your nest has revived me again, dear Cuz! Julie Ann xxx
