WOYWW 416 - background? 30/100


Today is Wednesday, awalys a good day 
middle of the week 
and more importantly WOYWW day and a special one today, the 8th anniversary, congrats Julia!!!
On top of that, I'm on the verge of a long weekend,
and the weather is fabulous, this Sunday up to 30°C.
So my desk is still set outside

my box with a selection of supplies is getting fuller and fuller each time :-)

While my son was playing in his new swimming pool I created this "background", 
I think it is more a finished page already,
just need to add some words, a quote and done.

I always like to see the progress a page makes, so here it is

Can't promise it will be today that I'll visit, but definitely somewhere in the next coming days.

background 29/100

I just cut a piece of the paper that lies on my desk to somewhat protect it,
glued it on to my page

and transformed it into this

I call this background #29

background 28/100

Here is a quick, simple background:

some booktext, spraying (which the camera for some reason doesn't pick up very good) and stencilling through a vintage clock stencil.
Have a lovely day!

background 27/100

Background #27 started out with spraying a word stencil which I cut with the Silhouette Cameo, 
can you believe the intricity and detail it can cut??

Next I added some images from a papertissue (I could never use such a pretty tissue to blow my nose,  no, I bought this intentionally for crafting) and a KaiserKraft stamp in the top left corner.

This background was made earlier this week, but I thought it wasn't finished enough to share, then I reminded myself today that it is only meant to be a background.

background 26/100

This challenge is succeeding in it's purpose.
I wanted to create more and I am definitely doing that, 
perhaps not every single day, 
because sometimes life just gets in between me and my crafting,
but as you can see at the increase of blog posts a lot more than in the beginning of the year.
It is also teaching me to go with the flow,
I do not need a plan upfront, 
let one thing lead to another. 
And that is exactly what happened with this background.

Here you can see the evolution:

It all started simply with taping down some masking tape;
which led me to color them with some oil pastels;
added some scraps out of my box;
and colored the remaining white space with some acrylic paint
then the oil pastels came out again to play, 
they are by far my favorite supply at the moment.

WOYWW 415 - background 25/100

Goordmorning all and what a glorious morning it is.
Today we will be reaching temperatures above 25°C! (tomorrow rain and much colder of course)

Because it is wednesday it is time to show you my desk

it looks a bit different you say,
see what's missing?
Yes, my son's desk. We used it past weekend for his party, will be back in place later today.
And yes, also missing it seems is some action on my desk.
well, I must say on this desk, because with the nice weather I grabbed some supplies and moved outside.

where I've created background #25:

Because I'm one quarter of the way, I thought it was appropriate to show an overview:

I like the fact that they are all so very different.

background 24/100

We are still having beautiful weather, so I grabbed some supplies and headed outside again. 

In the past I was very reluctant to do that, because I thought I had to drag out everything I own, but it is so freeing to grab just a few supplies and create with them.

I first glued down some papers out of my scarpbox (doiley, openfolding rose, circles)
Added some stamping to the page.
Then ran back inside because I just needed my oil pastels,
ever since I started using them last week I'm addicted to them,
love the soft effect I can create with them.
The dancing man silhoutte is not glued down yet, I think I will color and shade him first. 

Today will also be a beautiful day,
so more crafting outside I think,
make sure to come back to see what I've made.
