Its Wednesday...........

Happy WOYWW .....your're just a click away from an around the world desk hop starting at Julias pad, the sun is shining or it will be later cos the weather man said so and they are never wrong.......its lovely seeing all the trees start to turn to their Autumn colours, although they're still quite green at the moment. Yesterday was grandson day...... and he's come down with a cold so he's even cuter at the moment with his squeeky voice, the only thing is we will have all gone down with a cold by the end of the week. My grandson is into Chuggington and his favourite character is 'action chugger' so yesterday afternoon we wer digging in the garden......I was trying to do some weeding, Ethan had a trowel and was digging in the gravel throwing it over his shoulder shouting "action chugger" at the top of his squeeky voice....he had fun and although I didn't get a great deal of weeding done I had fun as well........
Todays desk is a working progress for this weeks challenge at CC, alchohol inking on grunge to produce an agate finish.........not quite got it yet, Mr Holtz makes it looks real easy in his book, the gold is really over powering on mine so I may just do it again and then probably again, as I've already had 2 goes already.


Have a great day......off to work now, if it's as hot as they say it will be today
we should be fairly busy with ice cream and we're selling our christmas chocs
as well......

hugs from Daniele

Lol, I would love someone to come and do some 'action chugging' in my garden! I know what you mean about the alcohol inks, I can't seem to reproduce whatever it is I'm aiming for. Practice, I guess! Helen (46)

Morning Danielle :D ... loving the stuff on your workdesk, I like all the gold but if you don't have you tried only a single drip of mixative, or going back to the card you've already done and adding more blending solution either by dripping direct to card or by wooden applicator ? .. just a thought x :o)

Sue said...

Love the mottled colour background!

What fun with your grandson. Sounds like he's a doll and "action chugger."

Don't you just hate it when people can make things look so easy and you have such a hard time with the technique? It's frustrating for me, and it sounds like you are using a lot of product in order to get the look you want. Hope it turns out the way you want it to in the end. Happy WOYWW (# 2).

Sherry said...

I've done my CCC for this week, not one of my favourites but it's good to try all the different techniques out.

I love that bus on your desk - is it your alcohol ink holder? What a fab idea!

Hope your colds get better soon.

Julia Dunnit said...

oh bless Ethan - the old gravel figging - takes me back! The gold doesn't look too overwhelming to me, funny how we perceive things differently. However many times you do it, it will be different each time - the beauty of the Th styles I guess!

Haven't tried the grunge thing yet. Love your colors!
