What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 195

Welcome if you are visiting here via Stamping Ground Blogspot
If you wish to find out more about WOYWW hosted by Julia. 
Please check them out and join in the fabulous fun.

Hi everyone, This week I have been working on many projects, 
some a secret and will let you know about in due course?

For now though a handmade card ...
One of my projects last week was making toppers for cards.
So this week out came the Vagabond, cutting shapes out.
For this card I used some walnut stain distress Ink. 
Blended it onto recycled card and finished with, 
a spray of cosmic shimmer (vintage Mist).
Coloured the cut out with orange gelly roll sparkly pen 
and added my topper. 
This Digital page I created has a sweet Vintage photo
with tranparency elipse applied. 
Layering of elements and shadow on the ribbon.
I then placed a material over the top and blended it with a 
colour burn which helped give an aged look.
I will be getting the camera out this week.
Thinking it is about time to capture my desk for next week.

Thanks for visiting
Have a wonderful creative week

Elizabeth said...

Two lovely projects - the making of the digi page sounds so technical I'm not sure I'd ever be able to do anything quite that complex but the result is beautiful. Happy WOYWW. Elizabeth x #105

Love both of your cards. Don't think I am up to digi like this. I can hardly operate my cell phone.

Ria Gall said...

the image on that first card is the image that I have tattooed on my wrist I just love it and when I saw the stamp a few years ago I knew it would end up a tattoo.
Both of these projects are beautiful so pretty
Happy WOYWW hope you have a great day

Thanks for stopping by this week Heather.
Have to say, I’m really impressed with your digital page.
I would never have guessed it was digital had you not said because you’ve done such a great job with it. A lot that see you can tell straight away.
Happy Crafting!

Hi heather
Thank you for stopping by ealier. I love your card... where is the stamp from? It's so pretty. I'm glad you like the idea of a garden journal. I like photography, my garden and scrapping so ideal for me. Never tried digi stuff but your page is beautiful.

Hi Heather, both cards are really nice, I remember the stamped girl from a previous post, she looks lovely mounted on that die-cut. Your 2nd card has such a lovely soft vintage feel, just lovely, Thanks for your visit Hugs Mo x

Heather Alger said...

Hi Lynda, the stamp was part of a free set that came with Creative Stamping magazine - Issue 8.
It was a huge set of clear stamps with flowers, bear, sentiments etc - Really pleased with it.

Beautiful projects. Too many people are scared of photo manipulating but I love playing and creating something different. I sometimes create my own discourage from photos. Thank you for your visit this week and your kind comments. Have a great week. xx Maggie #15

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Love the projects! I have a photo of DS that was done in the vintage style - I always thought he looked like a chimney sweep, in his flat cap and scarf - that would be further aged by this sort of process. LOVE the look of it, fer sure.

Love the digital work, it's something I haven't got to grips with - I seem to manage to spend hours on the computer as it is, so I'm very impressed. Thanks for sharing and for visiting too

Queen Lightwell said...

Gorgeous digi work! And I love the chicken wire on your blog background! I am obsessed with the hexagon shape right now, honeycomb, chicken wire, you name it, it's all I can do to keep myself from buying the dies! lol Thanks for stopping by my blog already and leaving me such a sweet comment. :) Deeyll #141

Heather Alger said...

Hi Gill,
Time is against me at the moment so for now no tutorials. However I have made a note as in the future may do some relating to Digital projects and create a new section on the blog for them.
I have learnt many of the techniques used on the Daisytrail site.
For Craft Artist users, anyone can look if they wish.
Its a fabulous place for learning loads and well worth a look:

The forum has all sorts of Information, links etc too.
Many of the challenges there are great too.

Heather Alger said...

Thank you :0)
I must give credit to Plumrose Lane an Amazing Designer for the background and header - She is Fab x

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

I love the vintage feel of both of these projects. Blessings!
