I set my alarm early again this week just so I could get up and get on here to post as soon as possible. Mad, I know. Only to find my internet connection was down so I could've stayed in bed a little longer, oh well it seems to be working now, thanks goodness!
So here's the desk. I took the picture before the light faded yesterday, but this is what has greeted me this morning.
As you know, I love Paint Fusion. Sheena Douglas's stamps are a huge favourite of mine so obviously I was thrilled when she brought out the new CD-ROM and the transfers to go with the fusion range. I've recently bought these new transfers and decided yesterday to complete stage 1.
This involves paint, a surface, in this case, mount board and the transfers. You basically paint a good layer of cheap emulsion on to the surface, then lay the transfer face down in the wet paint, making sure it's stuck into the paint with your fingers before burnishing with the spoon. So far so good, but I'm sure Sheena never made as much mess as I did when I saw her demonstrate this technique on TV!
Before I can move on to stage 2 - the big reveal, I had to leave these to dry completely. I did blast them with my heat gun, but as advised I've left them over night to dry nice & crispy, as Sheena says.
Later on, I will be moistening the surface before rubbing away the carrier paper to reveal, hopefully, the image. Fingers crossed.
I want to show you my shelf - the button collection has now been fully re-housed .....well until I buy more buttons that is (mum will still keep the little jars for me!).
My new 2 sets of Twinkling H2O's - stored in the suggested method of using old CD's. I have kept the lids and have a couple of ideas of how to use them, but that's for another day.
Something else you don't see very often in my room, well, it's there, I just don't choose show you every week....
Right head over to the wonderful Julia's The Stamping Ground to join up with everyone else who takes part in this fantastic weekly adventure of super snooping, desk-hopping malarkey!
Lastly I want to say a Big thank you to everyone who visited me last week, I love reading your comments, they really do mean a lot. Take care Zo x
