Woyww 116....Twilight

Well it's wednesday already!Where does the time go ?The girls are back next wednesday to school,well thats if the bus passes arrive knowing last year it was december before they arrived Suffolk C/Council never seem to be organised.


If you too want to nose around the world and have apeek at lovely craft desks pop over to Julia's blog the boss and join in with this wednesday weekly tradition.


First of all i should have uploaded the above piccy when i received the altered matchbox swap that Neil Walker arranged on Woyww.Above piccy shows the gorgeous box i received from Neil himself How lucky am i!!!I absolutely love this and the domino book so cute!Thanks Neil although did email him to thank him when it arrived.
Now onto my desk ...well this is what it looks like this morning.The piccy below shows the right of my desk.There you can see the altered book i had started last week ,and have nearly finished ,it's sat drying as i completed yesterday just needs tweeking.Also i have started to alter a blank book/box these come in sets of twos this is the smaller of the 2.on top of larger one.Sat drying after yesterdays craft session



Now to the left of me are some items i used yesterday on my daughters twilight canvas.

Some charms that need putting in the box ,Tag nearly finished need to add some gems ,the corner of a black canvass my 14yr old is now doing.All holidays chooses the last week to start and craft!sounds right..lol

There you go the canvass distressed with black soot ,and dryed awaitng my daughter to complete .im sure it will be another twilight one for her room!R Patz mad she is counting the days till new dawn premiers ....i just agree as don't intrest me a bit ,but i do know some of you ae twilight fans so i thought id show you the lovely red canvass collage i did for her room yesterday.Which i think has encouraged her to have ago !


"TWILIGHT CANVASS"


I used distress stains to cover the canvass.These canvasses are flat best buy brand new pack 3 from charity shop.I seem to think ive mentioned them before but i got from Sue Ryder shop.

I have added a tag distressed and used T/Hooltz stamp on home made flower distressed the edges.The owl stamped coloured cut out of canvass.Added twilight ATC size with stickles red ie blood.Bottle cap with R/patz photo on top added beeswax to get stunning effect love this technique just doesnt show well in photo.Some of the papers used are from an RAK .This pad is absolutely Lush ideal for any Twilighht fan made by DCWV.
Below is close up of tag and rt side of canvass.The charm wander is sat on a black lace flower whihc recently i have been making.Small metal frame with title twilight in .The butterfly wing was my daughters fav hair clip but it broke and she didnt want to chuck so have used that also added few more black stones and key charm and crystal leaf.,


Left side of canvass shows the bottle cap abit clearer although the flash light bounced off it.The metal love is large brad ive had for years never used.The apple i have used rock candy on to give better effect.Distressed the edges of photo with old paper.
I have added clips and chain to the back so she can use as wall hanging.



She was over the New Moon with it!...lol

Anyways hope you all have fab wedensday will try and get round you all.As last week had trouble on a few leaving messages so hopefully this week blogger behaving.
Lastly im having clearout of items i have got two of or even 3!yep so take alook HERE as i have and will be uploading items for sale all day to day.From stamps to mists ,paints promarker sets all new

Love to know what you Twilight Fans think?

Love n hugs

You must be a speed demon because it took me a YEAR to complete one of my altered books. That's why I only get about one a year.

Gotta admit, I'm not a Twilight fan. Don't know much about the movie or the book, but I really like this wall hanging. It is very catchy.. Happy WOYWW.

Thanks for the peek! Sarah (at 4)

Ta Da! Crafts said...

I'm afraid I am a sad 20-something Twilight fan (the books, not the films). That canvas is great, love how you used things that otherwise would have been thrown away. That's what crafting is all about, turning nothing into something. Happy WOYWW! Mel x18

The detail that caught my eye was the fab little owl on the Twilight LO - he's really cute and I likes his twinkly eyes - FUN xx

Helen said...

Annie said...

You really have been very busy creating. I am sure your daughter loves that canvas. I agree, I read the books, kinda liked them, but don't get the histeria.LOL
Happy WOYWW

Neet said...

Well Jude, I have spent ages on your blog this morning, there are so many delights to feast your eyes on.
Not a Twilight fan myself but the canvas looks lovely that you have done hope your daughter gets hers done to go alongside it.
I just love your books. Such gorgeous colours and so beautifully decorated.
Fab matchbox from neil, just wish he had asked us to send in piccies and done a display of them altogether - I've only seen three up to now.
Thanks for your good wishes, hope all is well with you and yours.
Hugs, Neet x

Great post and busy desk, Jude. The twilight canvas is fab. I was going to make something featuring the Twilight Zone for my granddaughter but she seems to have moved on ... though for an 8 year old she does seem to have the scariest taste in men/boys :) Elizabeth x #51

Hi Jude. My you are a busy bunny. That Twilight Canvas looks good though I do not "do" TV let alone Twilight - with the exception of Mark Harmon (NCIS) and Who Do You Think You Are!!
