WOYWW... Tidy!

...I got my Mojo back..yay! And...I have to say that I was totally inspired by Lin's tag on her BLOG...you have to see it .. it is amazing...so I got the Ten Seconds Studio's stash out...and the Melt Pot and copied her LOL Instead of a tag, I used a large piece of Maya Road chipboard from a book and altered that to make a hangy piece... **the pics are rubbish...Grim has updated the laptop...and the old PSP is now a new one and I cannot for the life of me fathom how to use it properly...am such a dinosaur..so, the old one will be back on the lappy tomorrow..hopefully LOL**




I used gold metal (cannot remember who makes this one tho) and TSS embossing board...using Lin's "controlled squish" on the diamonds and doodling into them and then using black paint to antique it. I used Ferro and Terra...stamping a blocky stamp from Green Pepper Press into the Ferro and then highlighting it with black and then Precious Metal gold paint. I added a little metal rose...which was stamped with the medium Flower Power stamp from The Artistic Stamper...and I doodled on this too before adding more black paint to match it in. The rest of the stuff is Idea-ology and a few bits of ribbon.




Also, just in time to say what is on my desk today...I am so late posting...mainly cos we went to see Avatar....wow, it is an amaaaazing film... we saw it in 3d and I made a burk of myself because I kept flinching and then...tried to catch what I thought was a floaty thingy in front of me...when it was actually on the screen...thank heavens it was dark so no one saw me ROFL Hop on over to Julia's blog...she has loads of peeps showing off their work areas...and now mine is all tidy and neat I feel a bit happier :O))




And...I just have to share this snapshot of AlfieCat...I was trying to take a piccie of him looking cute...and he moved...like cats do...so instead I got a piccie of his teeth! He isn't that fierce really .. infact...he is quite a pussycat *groans*




Thanks for looking...

Woohooo! Your Mojo certainly came back with a vengence! Now that it's back could you find out if it saw mine anywhere?

Juls~ said...

LOL Hels!

What a snap you got there! He does look furr-o-schous!

Very cool tag you made. Don't you love harlequin? It's one of my favorite patterns...

And your desk is all neat & tidy, ready to get messed up again! Get that mojo rollin' full steam, girl!

Fabulous piece, Hels! Glad you had a little rest and relaxation, too.... and what is it about husbands "updating" everything? Mine does that all the time, and I'm forever learning how to use new stuff. Sheesh!

Hi Hels,

Your workspace looks great - and I just LOVE AlfieCat! I went clicking on all of the Linked Links to check him out! He is just gorgeous! Have you met my boys? If not, come pay them a visit at Create With Joy!

Sandy said...

OMG OMG OMG I´ve missed my words Hels. This is excellent.
Fantastic creation. Love them.

Helen said...

I can just see you sitting in the cinema trying to catch something in front of you - you made me roar out load - good job no-one else is stupid enough to be in work this early!!!!
Love your Lin inspired art, it is GORGEOUS. I love it when your (or mine for that matter) mojo comes back!!

Daniele said...

great take on Lins tag must say when I saw her tutorial I thought gotta do that one except I don't have a melt pot and I'd better not use my non stick saucepans lol I know what you mean abut losing your mojo I think its the cold weather as mines been abit lost this week Hugs Daniele

Jennie said...

Loving this piece, amazing how it all goes together, and you desk is sooo neat... absolutely nothing on mine except paperwork, so was really boring and didn't post:(

Lynn Stevens said...

This knocked my socks off! So awesome! I'll be checking on Lins blog to see how its done! Glad your Mojos back sweetie!

Julia Dunnit said...

Never too late Hels, specially if you need to show off a tidy, smug desk! I don't think I've met a melt pot, arty type stamper (which is whatyou are)with such a tidy work ethic before! I think you may have too many of those dabber things. Really.

Minxy said...

Ello missus, Missed being able to have a hop onto your fabby blog over the last few weeks, just glad i'm now feeling better so i don't miss any more... Great texture on this piece, If you find my altered mojo please send it back as i'm starting to miss it terribly x

Andrea said...

Wowzers, what an outstanding tag. You are so inspirational! I have a ATC swap coming up and this will fit the theme. Thanks for the inspiration.

Kathy said...

Your desk puts me to shame....

Chicken Licken said...

Love that! I always think cat's look funny with teeth cos my cat hasn't had any teeth for 10 years so I am not used to it!!

Lori said...

Yikes, check out those teeth! You're hilarious. The tag is awesome!!! Going to definitely try that! Ok, have to go to Lin's blog now

Lesley said...

Seriously gorgeous tag!!!

Rosie said...

You've reminded me I must get my metal stuff out again - it's lurking in the corner at the moment. Your desk is MUCH too tidy - get on there and scuff it up some!! Such a cute pussycat too ....

Joy said...

Glad you got your mojo back hun, though I suspect it didn't stray far. Love this tag xx

Yours Artfully said...

Glad you liked my little tutorial enough to get your tools and paint out and give it a go.....you did a great job, it looks fab. As you can tell, I'm a bit behind with my blog hopping...better late than never!
