WOYWW 197

Good morning everyone...its that time of the week when we get to view the desks of  fellow WOYWWers all over the world. If you would like to join in or view desks then nip over to Julia's blog, which is called Stamping Ground........HERE

Last week many of you liked the start of my Time Travel piece, which you can  now see completed in my last post. 

Below is a mirror, which I purchased for 1.99 and painted with various layers of paint over crumpled tissue paper and book pages, using a combination of Distress Paints and Americana. I gave it a wee sand allowing the other painty colours to come through. 

I did do some more stamping but as I felt it was not right I just painted over it again, blending in a mix of colours. 

The background stamping so far is from Tim Holtz new Stamper's Anonymous Paris Memoir's set.



Just heading to fee my 'twa' cats before I get ready for work. 

Have a fun day and I look forward to catching up with you later.

  2. Hi Annie, the stamping looks great so far and I love that set of wings (I bought a similar set from the Funkie Junkie) and how you have distressed them. Looking forward to seeing how you use those tattered florals on your mirror too. Hope you have a good day at work. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #23
