Only one thing for Christmas this week from me, still working on DS advent calender, all the stitching is in place and I am just quilting Santa - I am really pleased with the way it is looking. The table of determinate purpose is getting more of a look in this week so I have something to display. At the end of last week I finished my card for the Quick Cards competition - 12 days of Christmas it is not as elaborate as my previous entries so not sure if it will get anywhere - but I scanned it in and plan to print off copies to send out as my cards this year:
Meanwhile on my desk today are these non Christmas treats:
On the right I signed up for a free course on Willowing with Guadalupe Brizuela Cabal learning how to draw and colour Mandalas. Very relaxing and an interesting experience, this was the result of the first lesson part 2 tomorrow . On the left is the start of my last memory box for a wedding this weekend in lovely Durham, I am intrigued to see what is going to happen I found an image transfer technique. Basically coat a piece of cardstock with washable PVA glue in a thin layer and allow to dry. Print picture on to cardstock (I had to flip my photo of Durham castle and cathedral in picture manager so it is the right way in the end). Apply a thin layer of mod podge to the area of wood that you want to apply the picture then press down while still wet and make sure picture is well adhered to the wood. Then wait overnight so here we are:
Tomorrow evening I will apply water to the cardstock and gradually rub away leaving hopefully the finished transferred image. If it works well then I shall do the same idea with the date - if not paint will be coming out!
Hope you are all having a good week and may you get round lots of desks and experience lots of goodness via Mrs Dunnit :)
