WOYWW 433: Only 10 More Sleeps...

Hi everyone and welcome to the shed for another week's desk sharing.  See our hostess Julia at The Stamping Ground for all things desk!  It's getting exciting, as there are only 10 more days and one more WOYWW until the get together in LLandudno.  My crafty friend and I are really looking forward to it; even missing the home football match to attend!
My side of the desk (photo taken yesterday) shows the start of a Steampunk tag for a challenge.  I was working with the Top Hats stamp set by Creative Expressions and the Make Time clock die by Sheena Douglass.  As you can see, my cup is empty and it wasn't refilled for another two hours after the photo was taken! 
Greetings from Eva!
My crafty friend's side of the desk was far more colourful as you can see.  She was working on batch creating background papers using the Pixie Powders by Cosmic Shimmer.  Once dry, these will be cut down and stamped onto, ready to create the first Christmas cards of the year. 
The vase of flowers is inspired by April's desk each week; the roses were a belated birthday gift from another of my crafty friends who I haven't seen for a while.  If you want to see my finished tag, then come back and visit tomorrow when all will be revealed.  I'm feeling very accomplished already today as by nine o'clock I had been for my flu' jab, hung out the washing and prepared a meal to go in the slow cooker ready for this evening.  I have to go into work later (even though it's my day off) as there is a twilight training session.  Looking forward to the crop!

Art Journal Prompts 38: Abstract

I didn't have a great deal of time to complete this page in response to week 38 of Art Journal Prompts: Abstract.  Luckily I always have a stash of mop up sheets (including paper towels) that I can use!

Patchwork Strip Background

This card came about after a play session with my new Ecoline Brush pens.  I decided to make a patchwork background, having cut them into strips.  It was made for a friend's 70th birthday (as you can see) and I wish her all the best today!

Art Journal: Rustling Leaves, Olive, Burgundy, Copper

There seems to be a bit of an ongoing theme with my art journal pages recently.  For two different challenges, I have ended up using the same set of leaf stamps and stencils, yet the pages have turned out so differently.  This page was created for challenge 34 on Junk Journal Junkies and Mindful Art: Rustling Leaves, Olive, Burgundy and Copper.
