WOYWW 417: What a week that was

Wow, what a week that was.  I think I managed to visit everyone's desks eventually.  You can tell it was the anniversary last week as I don't think I've had 50 to visit before.  If I missed anyone, major apologies.  Thanks again Julia for keeping things going so long (and LLJ for stepping in when needed).  This is such an amazing group of people.  If you want to know what I'm on about, visit the Stamping Ground where our lovely host will explain all.   I didn't do too much swapping myself as I don't make ATCs, only tags.  I hope my PIF Sandra De in Australia gets hers before long (it did go off Air Mail) and that Shaz's arrived safely too.  I received two gorgeous ATCs; the one on the left is from Lisa (I was her PIF) and arrived with a lovely note; the one on the right was as a swap from Shaz (Silverwolf)  whom I met for the first time (along with Neet and several others) at Port Sunlight. Thank you both, they are beautiful works of art.
I'd better show you my desk as this is the purpose of our weekly get together.  As you can see, I was working on some shaving foam backgrounds, a technique that I haven't used in ages but decided to retry.  I was working with Aqua Tints, but you can use Distress re inkers or Ecoline inks too.  In the foreground is my latest journal page (see HERE), which started as a mop up sheet from another project.
Eva puts me to shame!
I will have to try this!
Finally I'd like to share some more cards which my friend made from the backgrounds she created during her play session in the shed with me last week.  This week she is playing around with Gelatos, trying a blowing technique.  I did pass on all the lovely comments about her cards from last week's post!
