Starting off with the great news that our much, much loved Head Desker, Julia, has come through her very long surgery yesterday and is now in the HDU - hopefully we will have an update on how she is doing before too long. We are all thinking of you, dear friend, and wishing you the most speedy of recoveries.
So what is on my desk today?
Working on some ATC's but was cross to come to my desk this morning to find the top layer of card - which had been stencilled with texture paste and had crackle glaze applied - had lifted and started to peel off.
Was I surprised?
When asking dearest hubby to cut me some mountboard into ATC sized pieces he found some of the sort that has the self-adhesive coating on one side (used for mounting prints for framing) - onto this I stuck some plain white card which I had put through the Xyron.
I did say to him that I doubted the two surfaces would adhere and that they would peel but, of course, he thought otherwise.
Did just have a "told you so" moment when I pointed it out to him I have to admit.
So the Cosmic Shimmer glue is my last ditch effort to save the situation but even that was struggling to bond ...hence the upside down tin (which is full of metal cogs) pressing down onto a small canvas board under which are two, hopefully, no longer peeling cards!!!!
If it works I shall attack the rest.
If not I shall have to scrap them and start again.
On the left are two projects I finished yesterday ... will blog these separately as our goal on WOYWW days is to keep our posts short and sweet and we can't go upsetting our Julia whilst she is in recovery mode following her op.,
Huge thanks to Jan ... LLJ ... Lunch Lady Jan's Fabric Frenzy ... for holding fort and keeping us deskers WOYWW'ing ... you are a *S*T*A*R* and loved every bit as much as Julia.
