Last week I had a very tidy workspace as you all saw....well here's the other side of the bed on my latest crafting session!
As you can see it's a totally different story as I had some 'trial runs' on a few things!  Some brush techniques being used with my 2nd Tim Holtz ink pad (Thanks Di!).  I've also got some embellishments waiting to dry after being edged in Stickles for a card you'll see later in the week.
My usual selection of DST and foam tape ready to be used, more embellishments waiting to dry.  I love the hearts die cut but it's really fiddly to remove from the die cut once you've used it.  I tend to do a few at a time, and now keep them all in the little plastic box - saves them being crushed and ruined.

So come back soon to see what card I was working on at the time!



Di said...

Like the idea of the pastry brush - is that for using with Distress Inks? Have a great day - mine's a tad nerve wracking! Di x

I like your space because you will have to tidy it up each night, I am, unfortunately not quite so disciplined. Great idea to do lots and store them in a box....happy WOYWW

have you tried using wax paper when you cut with your die as that will help it come out easier,x
