WELCOME to my little arty world! Trying to make art is a huge part of my life ... love nothing more than messing around with inks and sprays and generally making a mess!

WOYWW #299

What is there to show you on this WOYWWednesday?!?!?  Usual chaotic mess but me having a ball doing the splodgy-on-the-craft-sheet thing and then swishing and swooshing with your card and making backgrounds ... did a fair bit of swishing and swooshing  because I got carried away but have plans for all those that worked ... not that they can't work, you understand - no skill involved in swishing and swooshing and you just either go with what you've got or bin it!  Not often I bin a background made like this because even if the whole sheet is a disaster you can easily crop a part of it to use.

Not a lot to see really .. just got from my craft cupboard out in Antarctica the conservatory what I needed to try and give myself as much working space as possible.  Didn't work ... never have enough space!

Colours never show up well on the screen but they are my favourite default colours ... do occasionally experiment with others but these are what rock my boat. It is not very often AT ALL you will hear me say this but I was kinda, sorta pleased with these!

Did mention I got carried away and splodged and splooshed some random colours for some tag cards ... not my preferred colours but am trying to appeal to those who do not like getting down and dirty and grungy like me ... kinda, sorta know where I am headed with them and they should look very different sometime soon!

So that is the weekly glimpse into my world ... all thanks to the special lady whom is Julia over at The Stamping Ground


  1. Well, you've swished and swooshed to your hearts content there! Great backgrounds..I've enjoyed seeing what you've been posting on FB as well, you're a clever lady. I know what you mean about going outside your comfort zone though..I've had this feeling that I really should try other things sewing wise, as I seem to be in a bit of a rut. Don't know what though! Something'll turn up, it usually does :-)
    Hugs and happy crafting,

  2. I'm glad you are pleased with your swooshing and swishing. You should indeed be!
    Take care. God bless.

  3. You really do have to go with flow when it comes to swishing and swooshing. Embrace the random.

  4. What a wonderful way to spend some time! Saw some craft paints in the Works in Solihull yesterday and .... didn't really know how to use them so didn't buy. Now thanks to you I will just have to go buy some colours!! Thank you for the inspiration, love the grey and pink.

  5. Hi Debbie, great result from all that swooshing! Its funny as well how sometimes a background just looks a bit icky, then with the right stamp over it it becomes perfect! working for other people can be a real challenge, I agree. Occasionally, I have to use pink, lol.Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #18 xx

  6. I like your results from the splodge and swish. That first one looks like granite to me. Can't wait to see what you do with the tags! Have a creative week:) Shel-PaperOcotilloStudio #51

  7. I'm so excited I have 500 tags from Papermart being mailedl, and this is exactly what I want to do first - paint them! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #48

  11. Am loving how happy the two Esses make you. I am one of the people that think that ATMs 'seven shades of wee wee' colours aren't up my street....but you never fail to surprise me with your lovely work....makes me realise it's not the colours I don't like so much as what I do with them!!
