WOYWW - 1 August

August already, and praise be, less than two weeks to go before I go on leave.  On plans to go anywhere, you understand, austerity measures being what they are, but two weeks of not having to go to work is enough.  Lots of crafting will be perpetrated, you can bet.

So, it's Wednesday, and time for WOYWW again.  (To find out more about WOYWW, check out Mrs. Dunnit's blog).  This week my workdesk is - well, in a mess, quite honestly, as the result of having a couple of ideas on the go at once.
As you can see, I've cut and coloured some pieces of Grungepaper, in preparation to make my version of Kim Costello's mini hat,as published in last month's Craft Stamper.  Mine is going to be a red hat, in honour of the Red Hat Club gals, a fine body of women.  My first attempt didn't go so well, so I've adapted the pattern a bit...

Centre left, on my glass mat, is my latest discovery - Gilder's Paste.  It is the consistency of, and smells exactly like shoe polish, and goes onto all sorts of stuff - paper, wood,metal - it will go onto plastic as long as the surface is prepared first with some sort of medium or primer.  It dries quickly and comes in lots of colours.  Haven't made much use of it yet, but I have PLANS...

OK, off to dance class now...Cha-cha-cha and Tango tonight...thanks for stopping by!

You do have PLANS...the paste, the time off work, wow, it's all sounding quite exciting! I'm interested in the paste, you will report back, won't you?! I have that same swirly stamp and have to admit to buying a second because I use it so much I was scared I might lose it!
