WOYWW 434: So Excited!

On Saturday it will finally be time to meet up with many of our fellow deskers for the WOYWW crop in Llandudno; for more information visit the chief desker Julia over at the Stamping Ground, where far more desks than these may be visited.  My crafty friend and I spent much of our weekly craft session discussing what we would be taking with us; how many bags would be required and whether we would actually get much crafting done or spend most of the time meeting, greeting and gossiping!  I am really late linking up today even though this post was prepared yesterday;  I seem to have a hundred things to do, so apologies in advance if I don't get to visit many desks this week.
My side of the desk shows the start of a journal page; the first layer is an alcohol ink background on glossy card.  This was followed up with distress paint added with a natural sponge as the second step is to paint without a brush.  Not long after the photo was taken I laid the page aside to dry naturally as step 4 was to create a resist with a gel medium (or in my case clear embossing paste) through a stencil.  I will be sharing the finished page on Friday (if I get it finished) if anyone wants to see how it turns out.
My crafty friend was honing her Groovi skills by putting together her first complete 'picture' rather than just working on creating individual flowers.
We are both looking forward to the get together on Saturday and meeting as many of you as possible!
