I decided to join in on the "What's On Your Workbench Wednesday" where artist/crafters from all over the World share what is on their work bench each Wednesday. As I work every Wednesday evening and am not home till 11.30pm my sharing will be later then others. I did check pre work but the link post wasn't up yet.. It all started from here at Julia's blog. Anyway my desk is a large table and on one end I create paper craft/mixed media items and on the other end I make hand made jewellery. So first shot is the paper craft end complete with some new Tim H stuff that came in the post yesterday!!
And other side at right is my jewellery making side
On the paper crafting side I have three Magic Cards. On Tuesday I share an old paper crafting tip or technique and that post was Magic Cards this week...the how too for them is here.As you pull them out the colour appears like magic.
There is also a GORGEOUS hand painted ATC that I recieved from Lauren
2 other awesome ATC's from another friend Glenda
A water and drawing ink bg with a gorgeous stamped image awaiting a card transformation.
A mixed media background waiting to be made into a card tomorrow
Then over at the jewellery making end I have these amazing Prima Junkyard light bulbs that are screaming at me to make them into necklaces!!
Some of my hand etched items waiting to be made into cuffs and necklaces
I'm into "puffing" metal of late as well as I like steam punk so this is a partly finished steam punk puffed eye ball and a puffy heart awaiting a steam punkery treatment.
Some Ice Resin filled bezels
A polymer clay doll that needs painting!!!
A closer look at my etched puffy heart and a completed etched bird house necklace. The other day I had tried to make an etched copper ring and just couldn't do it so tried making a bird house as the bends etc were larger and I could solder that Ok...I'll retry the ring soon.
There you go that is what is on my messy work bench this Wednesday :o)
