WOYWW

Good morning lovely WOYWWers! I haven't posted for a while I have been so busy I have not had chance to breathe lately! Today I have made extra effort and took an authentic snap today of what's on my desk, instead of my usual last night LOL So here we go, don't blink you might miss it!




Indigoblu's Kay gave me these lovely reindeer as a gift to decorate for myself not for TV so I have made my plan and started my idea, first since they are wood I painted them with a gesso primer and then added my colour which is in this case 2 thick coats of quinacridone violet. I plan to use the stamp pictured along the bum of them and mega flake them. I haven't chosen the colour of the mega flake yet, think I will do a couple of test pieces on acetate to make sure it looks right. Soon as they are finished they are going on my mantle as part of my Christmas d├ęcor.

I have a giveaway over on the indigoblu blog that ends on Friday be sure to add your name!
