WOYWW #190


My second WOYWW


Back again to take part in my second WOYWW aka Whats On Your Workspace Wednesday …and this is #190
So hello and welcome if you are visiting here via stamping ground blogspot and if you haven’t a clue what I’m talking about then check them out to find out about it and join in the fun.
And I have so say many thanks to Ria Gall, another WOYWWer, for if I had not stumbled across her fabulous blog and WOYWW I wouldn't have seen so many other fabulous blogs and lovely bloggers - thank you Ria.

So what is on my workspace today?  There is a paintbrush holder and a canvas. Well, after saying last week that I was going to do something on a canvas, I started to suffer with the F.O.Fs and was thinking that my workspace was going to be bare this time. F.O.Fs? I hear you say, whats that?.. that would be ..Fear of Failure.
I kept looking at the canvas for ages, frightened of making that first mark on it to get something started.

Canvas in middle is finished but - oops - see the one I messed up on the left to sort out still



Used ‘That special touch’ checkers mask partly on canvas and with a stencilling brush used acrylic paint to fill the squares of the mask. Took off mask and spritzed canvas with a little water and dragged the brush over it. When dry added some random part lines using fine black pigment pen. 
Using the decoupage from the printed sheet that was on my workspace last week.. (made up from images from a digi-kit called ‘With Love’ by Algera Designs… assembled pieces and glued down on canvas. Added some glitter glue and little jewels to various parts on flying clock and girl. Added 2 black flourish die-cuts and word art which was stamped onto painted card and highlighted with white soufflĂ© pen, and thin black lines around edges.
Finally added some little ‘Anita’ gemstones to 2 corners.


Recycled a heavy duty cardboard tube. After priming with gesso, then a layer of pink acrylic paint, then added a brown coat diluted with water and made pattern on it using 'penscore' moldable foam.

 Then stamped swirly pattern and embossed in pink and gold using 'Artemio' rubber stamps. Stuck on lady etc. which was the same as on canvas. Added Hobbyart stamped sentiment. Then at top and bottom, some double sided tape and Kanban gold foil.
Yesterday I had some lovely clock and cogs dies and cogs mask come, so hopefully next time I may have something Steampunky on my workspace - which I love - hence the Steampunk book of ideas on desk too.
So until next time have a good week, and Happy Crafting    Gill x
