Time again for that world-wide nosy into other crafter's rooms and workdesks, hosted by the ever lovely and entertaining Miss Julia of Stamping Ground! You will definitely want to visit them all, starting with our charming Hostess!!!
I'm going to go ahead and admit two things: 1) This is my desk yesterday morning, not today! Today's I'm working on something that can't be shown because the recipient reads my blog and I want it to be a surprise. 2) Although I know we are supposed to keep this 'short & sweet', this is, as usual, going to be a very photo-heavy blog post. I think just being asked to keep it short makes it wind up even longer. I'm very, very contrary, lol!!! So right....
My desk yesterday morning:
Gorgeous and fabby starter kit from IndigoBlu!
I fell in love with gilding flakes when I stumbled upon a video about them on YouTube. Wow, wow, wow!!! It was like MAGIC, and I couldn't wait to try it out myself!
I bought some from Amazon, and they arrived around Christmastime. I had been told that to use them, all I would need is a glue pad (like ink, only glue). WRONG!!! So when I finally got around to use them about a week ago, it wouldn't work with the glue pad. And nothing I else I had on hand would work either. Frustrated!!!! So I searched and searched, and finally re-discovered IndigoBlu. I paid for my kit and a couple of new pots of flakes, grumbled about the exchange rate, and waited. But not for long! They arrived in record time, and yesterday I got to make these...
(Cue cherubs singing!)
IndigoBlu's Lancashire Rose gilding flakes, matted with brushed gold card stock and Melon Mambo.
So there you have my desk for the week!! Thanks so much for the visit and I hope you'll leave a comment before you go!
