Apologies for the chaotic kitchen with - the now - horrible clashing colour scheme - green and cyclamen pink, oh dear! Our lovely friend Kevin has had to stop for a while. He is so brilliant and so kind that everyone wants him and he takes on lots of commitments so we have to wait until the end of July for him to fit the cupboards, work-tops and so on! He will be building the cupboards himself so we'll have to be patient. We have a fridge, oven and sink, he took out one cupboard to make room for the fridge and put it back high above so we have to flutter up to reach things. Never mind! I craft on!
You know those cardboard containers Amazon send you books in? Well, I'm in the process of altering one to make it into a wallet for writing equipment - envelopes, paper etc., I'm hoping by the end of all my distressing and altering, it'll look a little less like a cardboard book container! Maybe I'll blog about the process in the future, if I succeed!
I was well pleased with how my shrink plastic medallion on the edge turned out, even though I managed to whack something down on it and almost ruined the Glossy Accents glaze!
Here is the reverse side. You can also see the tip of my storage that I made for my paper up on the right, so I am using it! I've been so inspired by the blogs I've discovered since WOYWW burst into my life! I've learned so much from people like Dianne who transforms paper towels into gorgeous art material; Monique who creates wonderful books, Marit whose journals and scrap-books use so many incredible techniques - I could go on but thank you so much everyone who shares their art so generously. I am thinking as I work today of all those in The States who are suffering from the extreme temperatures at the moment, what a terrible tragedy that the brave fire-fighters in Arizona lost their lives. The 4th July is nearing and I hope my American friends have a happy and peaceful Independence Day. You can see my diary is open too with all I have to do so I'd better flutter off now and take a nosy at what other crafters have been up to lately!
