What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 111

Good Morning peeps and oh boy what a week since last woyww.Im not sure about your part of the country but we have only had 2 summer days Friday and yesterday.The rest well seems someone up above keeps turning the tap on heavy at that!

Gosh another Wednesday has arrived to cheer us all up thats when we get to snoop around the worlds craft desks.With permission.Thanks to the boss our Julia and her fab idea over at the stamping ground.

So if youd like to join in with this amazing wednesday WOYWW pop by her blog and join in the fun.Great inspirations to be had along the way.

Well i still have my tooth yes it was surpose to be pulled on monday ...Nope didnt happen another 5 days of these awrful anti-biotics and back friday to get pulled!

In the mean time i have done awee bit of crafting.My desk today is just one huge mess yep absolutely a dump!

So in stead as im very embarrassed at the state of my room .I am going to show you just acouple of bits ive been upto.

The first is an altered match box this is the first time ive done one this small usually use the big kichen size boxes.

Here ive distressed the box using my inks and have added a altered domino that has then been glazed with distressed crackle glaze to give that lovely effect.I have then coloured a plain white prima flower with matching distress inks.Glazed the flower once the inks where dry .Added Tim Holtz ideology flower ,and flatbacked pearl to the centre and small string of wee pearls hanging down.I then made a lovely wee pin to add bit extra lush to the flower.
The ribbon ive dyed using various distress inks to co-ordinatew with the colours and shades of the box
Along the side ive stamped a Prima fringe in Black archival ink and then added gem stones to the fringe of the stamped image .I have done this both sides.

Im pleased with the result as this is first time ive altered something so

I have also been busy creating tags for a swap im in in August yes bit head of myself.But due to going up to dads as mum is 80 on 9th August i thought id plan ahead so ive no rushing back to deadlines.This tag below i must say has to be a fav i love the waythis has turned out.You can see all the deets in post below.

Well thats it from me hopefully by next week my desk wil. be a desk.

Not a dumping ground!
