WOYWW# 205

This may be my shortest ever post, I've just been too busy this week with everything else other than stampy!! Today is the day for the weekly world wide Blog of of crafters desks and I think I'm going to spend time hopping and not stamping!!  Go here to start: http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/
On My desk: A batch of cards I made for a friends who needed thank you's.  I used G45 papers (love them) made a huge mess all over my craft room - easy to do!  But since I usually start out with everything in place it is easy to put it all back together.  I think that is realy important in order to not over purchase supplies and stash, If I can't keep it organized I can't use it properly.

every work surface in my room looked like this, since I had no plan in mind for these cards, I just grabbed and glued as I went along for each card.




All of these cards had textural elements on them, Glaze and brush stroke, unfortunately you can't see them in the photos.  They are all  5x7 size on 100# base weight papers along with the G45.
Thanks for stopping by, I'm about to walk the dog and then go on the Hop!!
Have a great day!
Ginny M

  9. All of your cards are just gorgeous. I love how you have used that fabulous paper. I have lots of graphic 45 and need to make a lot of cards for a craft show. I think I will use some of the papers for that. Thanks for a great idea. #92

  10. Ginny I love your cards! I am really into the French Market and Secret Garden papers right now almost to the exclusion of everything else. I am making my DIL a 12x12 framed wall hanging for her kitchen cause she is in love with the rusty color, sunflowers and chickens. Are you going to swap ATC's this year? If you would like to swap please send me your email addy to okienurse@gmail.com Hope you have a great week and thanks for sharing! Vickie #36

  21. Hi Ginny. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I love the look of all those pens on your desk. It's not something I use much myself but I'm always drawn to the displays in shops. l love all those yummy colours and you have them so beautifully displayed. It's definitely a desk that would inspire me to get creating. Gillian #97

  26. Hi Ginny doing some catch up here.. and yes love these indeedy!!

    as have one of your glaze and brushstroke know what you mean I take it these were pictured papers then added elements?

    ..also what do you glaze with.. and brush is is coarse bristle I imagined it was?

    Wow all those wonderful pens! yes every clouds does have a silver lining or "All things do work for good to them that love God.." :D

    God can see beyond the stage we are walking through and can see the why and we really just need the trust..

    I just love those cubbies would love two here please :D

    I have been looking maybe need to do some net looking too what did Steve put as criteria I wonder?

    Just came up with zero over here.. seems to be one of those things..guess Ikea would have it but dont have one here ... anyway enough rambling have you dont the letterpress method post yet as saw you mentioned one a while back?? love Shaz in Oz.x #45 I think.
