WOYWW143!

Good Morning fellow WOYWW-ers! (and just as good morning to those that don't play, of course!)
If you have no clue as to what I'm on about, hop on over to Julias Blog and have a look at all the hundreds (yes really!) of crafty workspaces that are being shared today! Take a peek or play along, its great fun...
My desk this week.... it's the aftermath of a painty session....
I had finished a magazine project using colours out of my normal comfort zone....namely browns and creams with a smidge of pink thrown in. Actually found I really loved the combo, so carried on with the paint after the project was done to make things for me!! This is the mess afterwards....trial stampings, dirty sponges and all! What did I create? This........
Thought the dots looked a bit rain-like, so out came a stamp I haven't used before, this lady is a KatzelKraft image. Have to admit to altering it a bit..the original image has a big gap in the umbrella handle, so got out my fineline pen and joined up the ends! Do you do that? draw in extra bits to suit yourselves?!!
I also put a teeny point on the top of the brolly......!
Changing the subject..... Last week you may remember I showed you some jewellery sets I made for my friend to choose from? Well, true to form, the 'overwhelm the customer then they'll buy more than they originally wanted' selling psychology worked......she chose two sets! The black and also the dragonfly one which I think was most popular with you lot! Thank you for all of the lovely comments about the jewellery, much appreciated!
OK, busy busy.......lots of desks to go look at!
love Trish xx

  7. Ooh, lovely colour combo and I love that image. Yep, I often tinker with images and cut off bits I don't like, etc - especially frames and words and I cut up words all the time. Good to be able to be a bit more versatile and tweaking something is always good, he, he x
