WOYWW - Glimmer Fest !

Hi Hope all is well with you ?

Just a short catch up with my desk this week !


The desk is piled up with a stack of embellishments all sprayed with various Glimmer Mists !

I have been looking at some of the lovely scrap pages & journal work from Finnabair (Anna Dabrowska-Pekocka) which has layer upon layer of flowers, cogs and paper all lavishly covered with Glimmer Mists - and I really wanted to try something inspired by her work.

So I have picked a picture, rifled through my stash for flowers, found a pile of book pages I had die- cut ages ago, added odd buttons, plastic flower beads, chip-board pieces, tags and so on.

Then between ironing & packing for holidays yesterday I put everything through my sophisticated spray system ( aka cardboard lid from box to spray in!) and they are now sitting all ready for me to find time to create a page !

Also just peaking out on the right are some new Christmas stamps - even I am starting to succumb to the lure of Christmas now !

And one last thing to share - my friend Jan & I's September challenge which was a combination of "use a stencil" & "include a photo" - here's my project using a flower stencil & pictures from the gardens I visited on holiday - plus my half of October's challenge - which will be "include Letters".

Hope you all have a fun crafty week !

  9. Hi Ali! Thanks for posting on my blog. It's so much fun meeting new people. Ohh all those embellies look so pretty on your desk and I love the functional box top to spray!

    Yes that Christmas bug is biting me too but I must finish my Halloween stuff. But there is something special about the Christmas crafts that I look forward to each year.

    Love the stencil work too. Very pretty.

  26. Hi Ali, thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I do love my pink glow from my sheer curtains. :-) What fun using your mists for your projects there. I'm still trying to get used to them...it seems like I spray and its just blobs or too much, etc. Brigita #122

  27. Noooo...! Don't do it! Don't go to the dark side! Stay here with me and be in denial that Christmas is coming.... please? Love all the glimmery embellishments. They look fun without the added benefit of glitz but now they will be even more fun to play with.

    Happy belated WOYWW. I'm just getting around in time for another go tomorrow.
