What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 205

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

It has been a busy couple of weeks with a variety of things to do from gardening, edging lawns, weeding and tidying to days out... We had a lovely afternoon at Lamport Hall in Northamptonshire, England. There was a wonderful arts and crafts fair, really enjoyed browsing all the stalls. Saw everything from wood turning, card makers, scrumptious homemade fudge, wool spinning and the rural museum was open to wander around too. The weather was kind and we sat in the sunshine drinking pop and chatting with people. I have been working on lots of different projects including Recipe cards for the new blog at E-scape And Scrap. A fair bit of Digital crafting done and some planning of handmade projects for the next few weeks ahead too.

I received a Beautiful prize all the way from the USA from Altered Pages.
It was for an entry in the March challenge there, Papers, paint, a stencil and sticks
Looking forward to playing with this x

Here is a Digital layout I made this week
The kit is 'Natural' by me and I edited it in CAP2 software. Using a punch tool to create the border frames. 
I Love shadow boxes and was trying to achieve depth as though looking in. 

Well lots of Gorgeous desks and projects to visit so I am off to hop 
Have a Great week everyone

Hi Heather, great prizes - congratulations! Love your digi layout - it looks as though you can reach in and touch all the elements - I especially like the pocket watch, but then I do have a thing for vintage images at the moment. Glad you've been enjoying the weather we WERE having! Have a creative week and thanks for your visit. MMx #73

I don't really know what digi crafting is! Do you do all the background and photos on the computer? The end result is great anyhow :). Well done on your win too!
Hugs, LLJ 33 xx

Heather Alger said...

Hi Jan, I use a selection of software to work with, Serifs Craft Artist 2 and also pse10 (photoshop). Its great for creating your own or using ready made designs and is done on the computer. You can also scan in things made by hand add your own photos then create Digi with them. It has endless possibilities. I Love the freedom it gives me :) Still love handmade too x

Lovely work!! I hope you enjoy your prize! long time ago, in the 701's before we had all these great inks, I used to stamp with acrylic paint all the time! They worked great, you just had to clean them

Fab prize, what a great and useful stencil that will be. Like the digi LO very much, I see depth! I like the sketch bones of it too, would you mind if I borrowed that?

Heather Alger said...

Daniella said...

Your digital work is amazing! I don't have a clue how you do it!!
I am so happy you got your prize! Hope you enjoy it!!

RosC said...

Love the design work you've done with the digi LO. It's very soothing and smooth to look into. Deserves a win of its own I say. Well done with the other.
And thanks for your comment - you're right, I have been busy and year seems to be rushing past. Hope you like the ANZAC biscuits; if I could send you some I would. Might have to be ATCs instead.
