Good morning to you all and sorry about last week! can you believe I forgot about you all...... It wasn't until Thursday last week and I said to my oh I better get my what's on photo done and he said what, for next week as its Thursday today? Can you believe it I was working on a project so hard last week that I didn't come up for air until the Thursday. But I am here this week in all my messy glory.

I am still working on an ATC book as you can see by the cream envelopes I made for the inner. If you click on the photo you might just be able to see the box I made for it to go into, but its a secret so keep it to yourselves please. I am into gold leaf at the moment as it was everywhere in Bangkok and I picked up the packet at the front for less that £2 whilst I was there. You can see a couple of stamps I have been using that need cleaning, one is a background I got from The Artistic Stamper that I am so in love with and have been using on everything at the moment and the other is a stamp I won from Artyjen when she did one of her random blog candy's.

If you are not sure just what I am on about pop over to our leader HERE and have a gander at the rest of us WOYWWers.

Thanks for reading,

WOW. Two pounds for gold leaf. Aren't you the lucky camper!! Those boxes are going to be super. What struck me was your trash basket. You do exactly the same thing I do. I use bags from the grocery store to line my trash baskets. No purchased trash bags for me! Happy WOYWW from #10.

Great work space. My old desk was a door we took down in an old house. Wish I had it back it was such an awesome desk! What are you planning on doing with the little boxes?

Ooh! Love the look of the gold leaf :)
Thanks for the input on my art journal page...I'm so amazed I sort of dare not start another one 'cos I'm scared it will be rubbish!!! LOL
Looks like you are having a fun time with the stamps and tag book ;)

P.S. I don't have a shop called the works anywhere near me...so the charity shop it will have to be!

Those boxes are great, lovely shapes. I love using gold and silver leaf too. Try stamping an image on the back of a piece of acetate, spray it with adhesive and then apply gold or silver leaf. Fantastic effect. Barbara Gray's silver birch stamp works really well that way.
