WOYWW - 16 March 2011

Another week, another Wednesday, another WOYWW!!

I started work on a new project late last night so on my workdesk this morning is an in-progress experiment:


I'm having a go at making Masterboard, as per the fabulous article in the March issue of Craft Stamper. This is nowhere near finished yet... it needs 3 more layers of ink, some gold paint/oil pasteel and lots of stamping... but it's looking quite interesting already:


I feel at this point, having been joining in the WOYWW fun for some time, that I should explain something about the ongoing chaos that is my desk... I am a scrap addict. By which I don't mean that I am addicted to scrapping - although I am that too! :) - but that I am addicted to scraps! Little bits of paper, images I have stamped or shapes I have die-cut or punched and not used, bits of patterned paper with a design that would be nice to cut out and use as an embellie... all sorts of bits and bobs! I can't seem to throw any of them away and they just litter my desk!

Just look:







I really need to sort out some kind of storage system where I can put all these bits and bobs... but I fear if I put them somewhere out of sight, it'll be "out of sight, out of mind" and I'll forget about them. And so they loiter around my desk, waiting for me to find a use for them! :)

Thanks for stopping by my desk today - and have a happy WOYWW! :D

Loving your masterboard, I don't know why I've never done one... maybe tonight!

Theresa said...

Fabulous stuff going on there Ali. I'm with you on saving snippets...you just never know:) Happy WOYWWing!

Hi Ali, love the masterboard your making - saw it in Stamp Crafter and thought it was lovely but I've not got the bead gel stuff yet so it's still to be tried but yours is looking great. I have scores of wee bits too but they are all in boxes, yes, I did say boxes plural, because I have sorted them out into 'types' - can't help myself, I organise everything. However, they are, as you say, 'out of sight, out of mind'. :) Elizabeth x #74

I'm the same with scraps. You just might need that little bit you threw away. I do go through them when I start a new project to make sure I have nothing available to use 1st. Hugs Mrs A. #57

I'm having a really busy week but am quickly dropping by to make sure all our WOYWW friends get the chance to win the last of our weekly draws before the BIG one over in our blog shop. Pop over and join in the fun. Good luck.
Hugs,

Very interesting. I don't get Craft Stamper...didn't know it existed till I started blog hopping here...so I am not exactly sure what you are doing! If it uses up my scraps I am willing to give it a try. Thanks for sharing! Vickie #52

I love that you are a "scrap" addict. I save all my little bits and pieces too just becuase I feel like I'm being wasteful if I throw them out, but I NEVER use them. Can I send them to you? Lol. -Mari (133)

Gonna set to on the masterboard thing myself - feel like I'm being left behind!! The scraps thing - really..do they get used? or do they loiter until you're so sick of them you bin them - especially the punch out stuff....I ask, because well, I need to see what you do with them!!
