woyww... if music be the food of love

Hi, and prepare yourselves for a long post for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday . hosted by the uber organised Mrs Dunnit, and the stipulations of it are that you show your desk! Well mine is full of rubbish ( OK, crafty stuff!) and hasn't been touched since last week! Now should I own up and tell you that I have another desk? LOL. It is actually a space that is higher and I can stand at and use my meltpot, and heat gun. Not that comfortable for creating on... I haven't taken a picture of that either as it is now covered in paperwork! So instead I have a rosy heart I have made especially for our Creative Team Challenge which starts today, being that it is the 1st of February.. how did we get to the beginning of February without me noticing? Anyway I digress. I made lots of mini roses using Tim's Tattered Pine Cone die, and followed these instructions by Creations by Christie. I have to say that practise makes perfect, and I did a lot of practising on these!! To make them, I used Core-dinations paper, and layered some with Tim Holtz's Music Tissue wrap, and left some plain. I used a papier mache heart for the base, and made lots of the roses. All of them were sprayed with Perfect Pearl Mists in Interference Red, and some were dipped into clear UTEE in my meltpot, to make faux porcelain roses. I hot glued them onto the heart. The saying "if music be the food of love" comes to mind!


I do hope that after you have hopped over to Julia's to see all the other wonderful desks, that you will hop back to mine and have a look at the Creative Team's gorgeous heart creations!
Have a very Happy Woyww day.

This is gorgeous Jennie. Time to dig out that die that I bought too late to use on Christmas projects last year. It does make the most gorgeous roses (or rather you did, lol!)

Jennie, these rises are gorgeous. I was most impressed with the wax flowers. I stopped by Wednesday to say hello, started writing a message, and my computer froze up on me. I had to restart it, and lost where I had been, since no one's name was darkened anymore. I hope you are having a great day and will have a super weekend.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

OOPS, forgot. I was #30 this week.

Artyjen said...
