Here's my desk for this week's WOYWW - if you want to know more pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and visit a huge number of other peoples work spaces - it's great fun!
I have just started this week's Summer of Colour challenge - to create art based on the colours pink and lemon for Strawberry Lemonade Punch ice cream. I have found a few bits and pieces for inspiration and my sketchbook page is in the middle of drying. On the left are some packets of decorative pins that I recently purchased and haven't found space for yet, and I haven't got round to putting away the hot plate and wax yet - how lazy!
I came across this lovely stamp while desperately searching for some glimmer of inspiration for this weeks Tag Tuesday theme Tales of the River Bank. As soon as I found it I knew it had to be used!
I carefully picked out the colours in the stamp and made some colour bars as a background, using embroidery silks wound around strips of card. I painted and splashed a tag to give a watery feel and attached the colour bars. I then attached the stamp onto the bars with Sticky Fixers and added a fishing fly that I hooked through the stamp.
