WOYWW #145

So this is my first Whats On Your Worktop? Wednesday and on my desk this week you will find piles of stuff that needs to find a home..!  Amongst the stuff is

 A half scrapped page. 

The lid of a graze box with a picture of cherries that I'm sure I'll be able to use for something one day.

A label from a lovely surprise that arrived yesterday that I will keep as I'm sure I'll be able to use it for something one day.  (BTW they were coconut, chocolate and cherry squares and were very tasty)

A little encouragement amongst the piles of stuff that I'm keeping as I'm sure I'll be able to use for something one day.

A gorgeous copper pot made by my friend currently filled with paintbrushes.  I know - no one needs that many paintbrushes!

And that just about covers everything. Does anyone else keep every random thing they come across in case they can find a use for it one day?  No?  Just me then!

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
