Oh Yes ... It's Wednesday Again!

Flight1a

Does n't it come around quick? Well ... it certainly does when you take your piccie and type late Tuesday night because you won't be around on Wednesday for WOYWW :0)

While you are reading this I shall be in Olney taking a class ... and probably having a lot of fun ... so I shall come visit you on my return :0)

First things first ... I finally got around to using my Take Flight Die from Lord Tim of Holtz ... you know Tim ... the man that can swim the Atlantic in under 10 hours while designing dies with just the clasp from a swivel clasp and a jump ring.Flight1

I LOVE the die ... I used it on Grungepaper and coloured the cage with Frayed Burlap and then embossed with Tea Die Distress Embossing Powder ... I coloured the bird with Broken China and wish I had stamped him too now ... but I was just so excited about putting him in the cage ... I forgot! The rose is Aged Mahogany spritzed with Glimmer Mists and laid on top of a Dark Room Door Frangipani flower ... also made of Grungepaper.

Anyways that is enough of the tag ... it did n't turn out how I imagined and looks a bit bottom heavy at the moment ... perhaps I will add something else later!

Ally Pally 10

I just have to show you this fab picture that the lovely Glen took of me on Saturday while I was demoing at Ally Pally ... I am chuffed that she got my good side ... I told you that Birthday makeover was fab and that I was the image of Julia now did n't I??? :0)

I have put this off for far too long ... I have waffled on and on in the hope that you got bored before you reached this part and abandoned the post before you looked at my desk ... probably the less I say about it ... well ... the better really ... I have Dan arriving this evening too ... I wonder if Destiny will do some tidying while I am out!!!WOYWW1404

Well now you have seen mine ... best you show us yours ... you can proudly display your creative space ... be it a desk or anything you work on really ... over at Lady Dunnit's bloggeroony here ... Julia is very good at explaining the rules etc., ... Actually that's a point! ... I don't think there are any rules ... but that is certainly the place to link up :0)

Have a good day ... I will see you later!

Fab tag, that die really caught my eye when they came out, it looks great. Your desk looks like cluttered heaven and now all I need to know is where I can get a julia Roberts makeover like yours!

Oh Destiny... is that the craft room tidying fairies name?? No wonder she didnt visit me I was calling her Beryl!

Carmen said...

Now why haven't you told Glen off for not doing any airbrushing either?? Love that photo :P

The tag is gorgeous - didn't see the bird cage dies grrrrr. Blinded by the paint basket I was. Yours is gorgeous!

Hels Sheridan said...

PMSL...can't speak...laughing my backside off at that picture .... xx

Julia Dunnit said...

I take it you were sucking something when the shutter fell? Great pic Glen! I think your desk is perfect. I think Dan will forgive you on the basis that he can't change you and hey - any desk with a bag of mini-eggs...!

Debsg said...

Loving what's on your desk. I have Tim's dies on order - wish they'd hurry up and arrive.

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Gorgeous tag Linda :) I can't wait to get my Take Flight die ;) Love the new look. I wouldn't count on Destiny doing any tidying, she can never be counted on!

Debi said...

Stunning tag Linda!!! Awesome art!

voodoo vixen said...

Is Dan any good at tidying up? I hope so!! LOL I seriously have to have that die, its stunning and what you did with it is even more so!! Oh and can you give me the name of whoever did your makeover?

Helen said...

I don't think it can be Destiny - she's WAY too tiny!! Now that's what I should have done with MY photo (of me, not you) then I could have used it. Love the die, it looks fab. LOVE your desk this week, just the way it is.
BTW thanks for the tip about heating the blending tools, velcro is now firmly attached!!

Rosie said...

Dear Ms Elbourne
That desk is a DISGRACE! How you can work in a space like that, let alone FIND anything is a mystery to me! On the other hand it makes for an interesting visit seeing what you've got on there, and did I spot a pack of wine gums or jelly babies under the desk???
Yours

Pam said...

Love the tag. Your desk looks so colourful, were you hoping that all that color would distract us from the bag of mini eggs!!! Hugs Pam x

craftytrog said...

Paula Gale said...

bloody hell - have you actually told Dan the real reason you've invited him over - because Destiny is actually on strike - poor Nick has suffered at her hands as well. I'm gonna have to sack the lot of them and go to an agency...

By the way - Ms Roberts (ROLF) where is Richard Gere then???

Like the tag - don;t think it is too top heavy - and the colours are lovely... might check out that die...

Oooh you've given me some inspiration for using that die. Mine arrived today with a couple of others so I want to get playing. Thanks for that - you're tag is gorgeous, beautiful colours and I don't think it's too top heavy. As my graphic designer trained daughter tells me 'don't be afraid of spaces'.

That tag is awesome. I would DIE for that die. Wowser. Won't fit my old Sizzex, I bet. You make great art. Your work desk is so colorful and bright. And FULL of projects, it appears. Sorry, no boredom here!
I know I'm so late visiting, and on my first ever WOYWW. Unexpected company interrupted my computer time today. I'll be back, that's for sure.
