WOYWW 635: Loosening Up

 It's Wednesday and time for the weekly desk sharing and linking up with Julia and the WOYWW gang over on Stamping Ground.

My desk today shows the stamp sets from the CLarity One Day Special this evening that I was lucky enough to play wi in advance.  If you pop back over the next few days I will be sharing the samples that I made in detail.
On Monday I received a bumper order from Clarity that I made in the members' sale back in July.  It was worth the wait but now I don't know what to play with first lol.  

Eva didn't make it last Thursday after all as she had last bits and pieces of work to complete before she handed back her laptop and keys at school on Friday - she is now officially retired!  She did however come round yesterday for a crafty session.  I have a couple of hours more school work to do and I will be sorted for September so I decided a reward was in order lol.  I was playing with the July club stencil and die that were delivered last month and I hadn't found time to play with yet.

As you can see from the change of #, I have started working with e new set of prompts.  Some of them are repeats of previous ones so I will have to think of a new way of responding to them.  Stay safe and Happy WOYWW everyone.  I'll be round to visit shortly - if the new broadband works smoothly - we are having super fast fibre installed this morning!

Baubles, Baubles!

 As the two way bauble overlay stamps (and Groovi plates) are the current Clarity offer of the week, I thought I'd bring all my samples together in one place, including a pair of shrink plastic earrings (see HERE for step by step).

Canvas using Clear Gesso with Embossing Powder Resist

Quite a while ago, I decided to have a go at creating a canvas with a difference and experiment with using clear gesso with embossing powder.  I used the very first Clarity New Design Stencil club offering but the technique would work with a variety of their A5 stencils.

Latest Drawing Update

 Despite the heat and the school holidays, I have still been starting each day with a drawing.  I work in a Daler Rowney cartridge paper sketch book and do a pencil under drawing before going over it with a fine black Posca pen.  I have been following the #drawingaday prompts for July 2017.

A simple prompt with little sketching first required.

Underwater Birthday Card

I am using all my Clarity New Design Club items this year (stamp, stencil and die).  This birthday card uses the stencil which I received in June this year.  It screamed underwater scene at me.
