WOYWW #195

Hello everyone Happy WOYWW and welcome… what’s WOYWW? It means ‘Whats on your workspace Wednesday’ and it’s the weekly Wednesday blog hopping fun kindly organised by Julia over at Stamping ground - pop over to Stamping Ground to check out the info on this and join in the fun.
Well I don't know where this week went again, if it keeps going this fast it'll be Christmas next Month.
I seem to have spent ages going through drawers and cupboards trying to work out how to re-organise my craft space - but no closer to answer yet LOL and only finished a few bits of crafty things.

So this is how my two little crafting spaces look this morning
edit - sorry I seemed to have messed up 3 or 4 of the top photos and lost the view where you can flick through them so have made the view larger instead.

It's a bit of mess.  Not done any more on the placemats I started stripping last week as still thinking what to do with them.

Got some old pieces out of stamped and inky bits to do something with and some left over bits acetate that I’d printed out a few week back. 

But talking of the acetate/transparency film that I printed out from my digital design.. below are the finished card and tag that I made using this.. and also last week I showed a digital card that I was going to print out and make into a proper card which is completed now too. 
My digital design acetate with alcohol inks behind. Micro beads and glitter on the ribbled black card on left side.
Made a flower and added some swirly die embellishments too.
Tag using the same acetate design... that's my grandfather top right probably about c 1899
Had a digital design of this last week made from my 'Grunge en rouge' kit
and this is the proper card printed out and  put together.
 Well that's my lot for now - I'm off to check out your desks and see what you have been up to.
Thank you for stopping by and looking and thanks also for any comments left ....Have a good day and Happy Crafting... Gill x



  1. Hi Gill, Your cards turned out fabulous x
    Love all the detail like the torn paper and finishing touches with the ribbon and flowers.
    The time does just fly! Did I read Christmas
    oh sugar ;0) I have not even made my Easter stuff yet x Happy WOYWW Heather x #85

  2. Hi Gill - I'm loving your inked acetate projects, such a great effect. And those are very interesting stamped images in your first photo. have a happy WOYWW MM x #97

  3. Great projects! good luck with your reorganisation - we do keep fiddling, don't we!! Happy WOYWW Helen, 8

  4. Fabulous cards and tags, great detail you added which really makes everything pop.
    I use old placemats covered in aluminium foil as pads to go under my heating with a gun (do you follow that?) it stops my green mat or other surface warping. Use them at workshops too.

    Hugs, Neet 27 xx

    1. Thats a really great idea Neet - thanks so much .. Gill x

  5. Everything is so pretty! Love the acetate! What are the crayons looking things in the first pic? Happy WOYWW. Nan #1

    1. Hi Nan.. the crayon looking things in the box are Derwent Aquatone watercolour sticks and the ones above them are oil pastels which haven't been used for ages - so determined to use more mediums and stash this year instead of hoarding it all LOL Gill x

  6. I do love your card and tag so much it just has so many layers and the image of your dad is so cute. The dimentional flower just finsihes it of perfectly LOVE LOVE LOVE
    Happy WOYWW hope you have a great day

  8. Hi! Love how your cards and tag turned out! The use of the transparencies is just fab. While looking at your desk I noticed the face mask thing and now I must grab one from myself as sometimes I could use when working. Never thought to use one. Thank you for the visit! Winnie#91

  22. You have achieved such a cool look with the printed designs on acetate.... gorgeous.

  23. I love that tag with your grandfather on. A lovely way of using old photos. With your acetate, have you tried mounting it onto the same image (but reversed). I love that effect of stained glass. Thank you for your visit today. The ice cream container is on borrowed time as my DH is making a more useful stand for those things. Have a lovely week putting all your bits and pieces together. xx Maggie #15
