WOYWW164!

Happy Wednesday!!
It's the middle of the week...so that means some serious blog hopping!!! Julia is our wonderful hostess over at The Stamping Ground  for this fab trawl through the crafty desks around the world!
My desk this week..
Very very messy, but very busy too! School holidays actually mean MORE studio time for me....no school runs and a burning desire to escape from the kids!
The tag you see is the start of something I'm just playing with...for me!! No reason, just because.....the best kind of crafting! I've scraped a thick layer of acrylic paint through a stencil, and dried it with a heat gun. This makes the paint bubble and gives the most fab texture...
Sponging the paint doesn't give you a thick enough layer...you really need to scrape it on!!!!
Tag will be finished later and I'll show you tomorrow what it turns out like!
My DVD giveaway is still open.....closing date is August 5th, so still time to enter if you havent done so already! Click the link at the top right on the sidebar for all the details!!!!
Hope the sun is shining wherever you are today!
Love Trish xxxxx

  3. It's such fun doing what you have and if you try it with a hint of colour even better too. I sometimes use modeling paste or even gel medium on stencils the gel medium is the best by far. I will pop back later to see what you have done with your work.

    Thanks for sharing.

  19. Hi Trish. Your desk always looks light and breezy. Even with all your goodies on it. Love the harlequin paint bubbles! Great way to add texture. Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 39

  20. Ah, the fun of experimentation! I take it your kids are old enough to fend for themselves for a few hours, either that or you lock the door!! I'm quite pedantic about cleaning my stamps, I have to admit!!

  23. Oh, I'm so glad you're making something just because. We don't take the time to do that enough.

    Thank you for visiting and being lovely, and I'm sorry for boasting about the sun.

  24. That effect looks amazing! I want to try it! I'm a neat-freak, but I do enjoy getting inky and messy, just as long as I clean up as soon as I'm done. In my defence, my desk is next to the dining table! Happy WOYWW! Victoria no.25

  36. Hello Trish,
    thanks for visiting me and your great comment.
    I really enjoy experimenting, probably much more than "manufacturing" so your stencil work is most interesting. I've put stencils on my wish list for the Paperific Show coming up soon.
    Yours,

  47. Hi Trish, one of the advantages of being slow in getting round everyone on WOYWW is that I get to see more recent posts - the completed tag is great. I've never thought of heating paint other than to get a distressed effect, but it the result is interesting. Oh, and yes, it is a pleasure sometimes to be able to create something just for yourself. Hope you have a lovely weekend, Elizabeth x #24

  48. Sorry I'm so late in visiting! Thank you for visiting me. :) What a cool idea. I've used a heat gun on paint before and it certainly adds great texture. I'm going to jump ahead so I can see it all finished. Good for you creating for the pure joy of creating. Warmly, Tracy #93
