A hubble bubble brew of crafty dabbling with a peck of daily life stirred in !
your desk looks pretty busy to me - love the journal page! your quilt squares are fabulous too. Does you going away mean you'll miss Ally Pally this time? Hope to see you soon though. Helen 2
Ooo lots of fab things you have created! Sorry, I have never used mica powder. Can't help you there.Love the quilt pieces. You do sewing on holiday? Now that is dedication!Have a good week,Lisca#10
Lovely thing you've been working on! The patchwork is looking great, really neat and precise...mine is always thrown together somewhat haphazardly...I wish I could find that part of me that should be meticulous......I'm still searching, lol!!!Hugs, LLJ 5 xxx
pretty sure you can spray mica with hairspray to stop it moving - maybe test it on a small patchlove your journal layouthappy woywwCharlie #24

Lovely page there, great colours and .... butterflies .....have a good weekChristineBishopsmate #39
Have a fab holiday.Mica powders need gum Arabic to set them..either in liquid or powder form...it depends on the brand as to whether they're pre-mixed with it or not. If they're smudging because you're stippling them on to meet ink, you could do as Charlie suggests and spray hairspray over it as a fixative..or use a matt spray fixative. Smudging largely depends o. The ink drying too.....
Lots of gorgeousness on your desk this week, Ali. I do love the butterflies and it's all such a fabulous colour! Actually your sentiment about butterflies exactly matches my latest Zentangle drawing which I showed the sneak peek of - I now have permission to show this on my blog so it will be up tomorrow. Thank you for your lovely comment and your good wishes for my treatment on Friday - only 3 more to go - I can't wait for it all to be over now! I'm so glad you like my fabulous cat box. Once I get better I'm getting my sewing machine going again and the little cats will be a good way of practising free machine embroidery. It will be a fun thing to do, and I shall contact the lady who made the box and let her know about it. She was so pleased it had gone to the home of cat people! A purrfect present, as you say!Happy WOYWW,Shoshi #29
You have such a variety of projects going. I am most interested in your art journal. I work on mine off and on, more off. LOL Happy WOYWW! #48
