WOYWW - 22 December 2010

A very late entry to the WOYWW party this week - been a busy day with DD under the weather and mum arriving to stay for the Christmas period. Finally found time to snap a quick photo though... this is the contents of my workdesk today:

It's a bit of experimentation really... I'm having a go at Julie's fabulous faux dichroic glass technique. Have been dying to have a try of this for ages... I bought the goodies I needed (Viva Decor Croc paint and UTEE) weeks and weeks ago but with illness etc - and the urgent need to make xmas cards! - it's taken me until now to get around to having a go.

In the bottom right corner you can see my first attempt... didn't turn out too great... the paint didn't crack into small enough areas and the ink colours I used were too bright and didn't blend into each other enough:

But I'm persevering and the second lot is already looking more promising... the paint has cracked the way it should and now I just need to add the inks and UTEE and see how it turns out.

So that's it for my desk. To check out all the other crafty desks this week, don't forget to head on over to Julia's blog.

And just to end this week's post on a fun note, I thought I would share a photo I took of DD having her dinner tonight... DH decided to let her have a chocolate mousse for dessert... and it looks like she really liked it! :D

Thanks for popping by - please do leave a comment... ooh and have a very Merry Christmas! :)
