What's on your Workdesk Wednesday 261

I have to say I have been awol for ages, but hey it's time to get myself back into action and find time to create, I have a new place to craft and it has taken time to get it sorted out but it's finally becoming a place I craft at...
But for my workplace desk right now I'm set up upstairs on my dining room table watching Hell's Kitchen lol.
At the moment working on a few different things as usual I am in love with anything Tim Holtz inspired so I've been working on his folio's and some of his new stash, so addicted to his Wallflower paper stash so in love with the colours they just totally inspire me to document the everyday happening's of our lives right now.
I've also done a pop up birthday card for my little princess who turns 3 next Monday which is below.
Thanks for coming and visiting my blog post and thanks to the lovely Julia from Stamping Ground for organizing this weekly blog hop.
Oh I forgot to say I was lucky to get nearly front row tickets to see the Musical The King and I last week here in Brisbane and wow the set was stunning and as for the performance bloody brilliant, so I have linked you a little snippet of The King and I...

A Compendium of Curiosities challenge number 2

I decided that I really need time to craft, it's just seems to get lost with all the everyday drama's that is my life, so today I reached for my Tim book and read the distress glitter pages to get some inspiration, checked out the challenge on Linda Ledbetter's blog and got to crafting...
I decided to make a folder which will go in my May folio, it's going into the cooler months here in my part of Australia so decided to get Ms Sooky a new hoodie, and yes my pooch is named after Miss Sooky Stackhouse from True Blood.
So had to take a photo of her wearing her new clothes, can you tell she is not impressed with it lol, but the photo was to cute to not document.
Gathered my stash of which included chipboard, Wallflower paper pad, rubon's, distress paint in a couple of colours, glitter of course I stuck to clear as that is the only one I had and used my inks, paints to colour it up.

For the distress challenge I
used my inks, sticky embossing powder and distress glitter for my stamped images
I inked random parts of my diecuts used sticky embossing powder and glitter and then used some gold dabbler paint on it.
I then used distress glitter with glossy accents on my cut out florals
Then the label tag has distress glitter, glossy accents and a couple of colours of distress paints.

April's folio filled up with memories

Last month I had fun playing with the smaller sized Tim folio's, I decided to document the month and use the folio instead of my normal project life album and loved how it came out...


























My take on the Tim Holtz May tag challenge

So when I saw the tag challenge I decided I wanted to do it in a bigger version, last month I used one of the smaller sized Tim Holtz folio's to document our life story and had such a fun time playing with the folio
So seeing that it's May I thought my bigger sized folio would be the starting point for the challenge, I didn't have the shadowpress things so I used one of the word alteration dies instead and then dug deep into my treasure stash to add the embellishments to the tiles...
And this is the end result mixed old with new embellishments.....
If you want to check out my smaller folio that I did it will be on my next post.... Thanks for dropping by.

Dec daily day 2

This is the start of day 2 I ran out of photo paper so I need to do the back page tomorrow.
I dont do simple but I love how this turned out.
The photo's show Bella unwrapping her advent day book surrounded by her big bro's.
I love that they saw her getting frustrated with the wrapping so they would help her...
Christmas is all about love and these three adore each other well most days lol.
Thanks for taking the time to look.
