The Stamps I Use

WOYWW - August 17th

Hi folks,

it's time for What's on your Workdesk Wednesday. If you don't know what it is all about, be sure to stop by  Julia's blog, the Stamping Ground, to see everyone who is playing along (and maybe link up a peek into your crafty space).

Here's my usual desk, with some different supplies for me....

My younger sister has asked me to make a few decorative pieces for her youngest daughter's room (she will be a year old in September - my niece, not my sister!). I had previously given her a frame using the Safari friends from PaperWorksCo and she would like me to use those same stamps on these pieces. She sent me some inspiration photos of the sort of thing for which she is looking - little pictures with zoo animals and alphabet blocks sort of thing.

So....I have picked up some 8x10 artist canvas (10 of them but I will probably only use 4) and some Mod Podge. I have a rough idea of what I want to do but decided it would be a good idea to stamp out the images on some sticky notes first, cut them out and then draw out my actual design plan first. Then I'll choose my papers and cut them out for the backgrounds, stamp my images for real and colour them up and then mod podge it all onto the canvases. Hopefully I can actually implement what I have pictured in my mind. I'll be sure to post the project here if it turns out (heck, even if it doesn't)! If it works out well, I have some ideas for the other 6 canvases I will have left over (though I expect at least one will be lost to me figuring out how to do this mod podge stuff).

Oh, and the Cricut cartridges are out because she has also asked me to decorate some wooden letters that spell out her daughter's name using either the same PWCO images or the cricut animal cuts. I'll be playing with those as well over the next few weeks.

And yes, since my last post I have acquired the last of my Copic Sketch markers. I have them all now! Yay! If only my creativity would make a reappearance!

Hope you are all having a fabulous day!

How lovely to have a little girl for whom to make something pretty!! Don't think my 18 and 15 year old lads would appreciate some pink bunting flags :D And way to go with your Copic stash - so many colours, so little time! xx

I'm sooo jealous, I have a few promarkers now but only about ten copic, I thought they run out faster, but they do have nice 'skin' colours I think. Very busy dessk!
