In case you are wondering, WOYWW stands for “What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday?” and is an opportunity for us all to be mega-nosey and see what messes and other creativity are on our desks mid-week! It is organised by our lovely Julia and if you want to join in, please click the WOYWW logo in my sidebar.
I haven’t been around much since Christmas because I haven’t been well, and when I’ve been a bit better I’ve been trying to catch up with things I couldn’t do, and also trying to learn how to use Sheba, my new Cougar cutter.
I’m having a bit more success with her these days, and have been working on a few things – if you want to see the Valentine card I made for my hubby at the weekend, please click here.
Today I am working on an experimental project using silver mirror card and partially cutting out butterflies so that I can flip their wings up. I have done a separate post about this work in progress as it’s a fairly major project at the moment, using Sheba, my Cougar cutting machine, but I thought you’d like to see the state of my desk, covered as it is with mostly failed butterflies! Superficially they may look OK, but most of them have not cut properly, partly because Sheba wasn’t set up correctly, and partly because they are too small, and need the special detail blade to cut the very tiny pieces out.
If you want to see how this project turns out, please keep an eye on my blog.
At the back of my desk is my latest find – Scotch Quick-Dry adhesive – this has to be the best wet glue ever! It really does dry quickly and gives an excellent strong bond, and doesn’t ripple the paper like PVA sometimes does. Lucy, one of my friends on the Black Cat forum, recommended it.
Hope you all have a very happy WOYWW! Thank you Julia, for organising us all.
