WOYWW #266

Good morning everyone.  It is Wednesday and the day I get to share with you the top of my desk.  If you would like to become one of us and show off your space, just pop over to Miss Julia's blog and she has all the directions listed there.  She is the weekly host and owner of this little bit of wonderful nonsense and we all love that she does this for us.  I have become so addicted to this weekly visit I don't know how I'd manage without it!


I have been playing with some colors this week trying to get motivated to make another project.  I'm struggling a bit and hope to be inspired as I move through the participating blogs today.

Do you use seam binding?  Here is my large roll and I used the Spectrum Noir marker to color...any alcohol marker will work for this so you can color your ribbon to match your project.  I colored mine then spritzed it with water and scrunched it up and now it is dry and ready to go on a project.  I've also playing with embossing powders so I have out my Versamark ink pad and my embossing powder.  My brayer needs a good cleaning so it is front and center.  The tool with the piece of chain on the end is a pair of tweezers that I've had forever.  They work so well when I'm working with flowers and I just can't give them up.  They look terrible but still do a fine job.  Oh and one more little thing...my embossing buddy.  The little pillow that you rub over a project and it helps keep the static down to a minimum and therefore your embossing powder goes only where it is supposed to.  Can't live without that little cutie!

Well this is it for me.  I'm off to check out the other blogs and see what you are all doing.  Come join us....I've shown you mine.....now show us  yours!

Finding out that buying white of anything (seam binding, paper flowers, etc) and colouring it to match was a revelation to me. I love the soft and pretty colours of yours. Yum yum.

Happy WOYWW!

Hi Glenda,

So that's what you do with the seam binding! I've always loved how it looks on your card. I think the scrunching makes all the difference!

The brayer looks pretty clean to me and as long as the tweezers get the job done I say keep using them!

I'm not participating in WOYWW this week but wanted to stop by and say hello!

Hugs,
Kay

Seam binding...white is the only way to go. I have two of those big rolls! I sold y Copics I'm using distress stains and ink to color the ribbon. Don't ya love Utee! Just discovered it molds great! Even used a plastic mold and the hot Utee didn't melt it! Thanks for the earlier visit! Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Nan G #76

But what do you use the steam binding for after you've coloured it? I'm intrigued :-)
The pillow is a clever idea, I found out at Julia's recently that embossing powder gets everywhere if you're not careful, lol!!

I love seam binding, it's so easy to colour and shrivels lovely when heated.
Have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x #41

Hi Glenda Happy WOYWW - yes, I love seam binding, great that you can colour match it and so only need one roll of neutral. Cheers and have a great week RobynO#28

What a clever idea to colour the binding yourself to match the project. I learn so many things on these desks. I could really do with your little anti static pillow but I need to rub it all over me. We have strong westerly winds right now and every time I touch anything I get zapped, quite ouchy. Have a great week and have fun playing.

Hello Glenda. Late visiting this week, I'm afraid - sorry. I like the colour you have achieved on the seam binding. Hope you have found the inspiration you needed by going round folk this week. Thanks for visiting - ye, it was fun - having a great tidy space, then filling it up for crafty fun with Chris, and now....yes, well, the less said about it now the better. A card making frenzy yesterday has left.... chaos!!!
Take care. God bless.

Looking at this makes me think I really should just spritz and scrunch several lengths of seam binding and keep it wadded up in a baggie. I always like it scrunched, but it's an extra step when I'm so often in a hurry. Gee, Glenda, you inspire even when you don't have a card to share!
