WOYWW #382

Hello fellow deskers and lovely peeples,

It's Tuesday evening and I'm scheduling this to post itself tomorrow morning as I will be at work by then - and hopefully the lovely Zsuzsa over at Inky Dinky Doodle will check in and link up for me, then I will catch up with everyone over the next few days. Thanks Zsuzsa :o)

If you would like to show us What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, just post a pic of said workdesk and link up over at Julia's Stamping Ground - or just pop in for a good old snout around some of the many crafty spaces around the world, it's fascinating and quite addictive!

My workdesk however is not at all fascinating this week, very little going on ...


You may recognise this as a GIANT box of Thorntons chocolates - but in fact it is empty, it was just salvaged for me by a friend who knew I would make good use of it, which indeed I will.

I did make this tag over the weekend, inspired by the Tim Holtz Tags of 2016 July edition, which is slightly more interesting ...


This year, Tim has been "remixing" two techniques from previous tags to create something new. This time, he used a resist technique with Micro Glaze (which I didn't have so I used matte medium) and created the title with the negative and positive parts of diecut words, which was a fun idea. I'm nearly caught up now, just May and August to finish before the next one is posted on Saturday. It really does get you using that stash of supplies and making the most of what you have squirrelled away!

Well I'm off to get a sensible early night now, thanks so much for popping in today and I will catch up with you over the next couple of days to see what you've been up to - see you at Julia's! :o)

Oh, the possibilities with that big box! Most of us probably prefer the box to the contents, LOL! Your Tim Holtz tag is awesome - I really like how the colours pop and harmonize at the same time and it's got that lovely, vintage feel to it! Hope your work day goes quickly and you can be back in your art cave playing again soon!

Oh, empty boxes call to me too - I can never throw them away even if I don't know what I'd do with them, lol!! Have fun with yours. Love that tag too!!
Hugs, LLJ 12 xxxx

Hi Annie,love the tag. Funnily enough, I made some Christmas cards using both the positive and negative shapes from some bauble die cuts this week! It's a great idea, when the die cut suits it. Have a great week, hugs, Shaz #8 xx

Gorgeous tag Annie - love the idea of coining techniques. As for Pandora's box! Can't wait to see what you create with that. So many options !

That BOX! I can't believe it had choccies in it. It's HUGE!!! Love your tag...well done you. ALmost there! Those butterflies and the 'crazed' sort of look in the bg is really yum! And negatives.....keep forgetting about using them!
