ReElly On A Roll...*Take II*

...mwhahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa... she said in an evil laughy voice... my work is done... I have found the real Jennie and reinstated her into her workroom/studio/room so full of stash if I spent 100 days in there I would never see all of it ROFL, done my bestest to make a mess, leave a trail of Grungepaper cuttings behind me and erm... very nearly break her whizzy Big Shot thingy *and I mean... so close that I had visions of visiting the local A&E having said machine removed from an orifice ROFL* SO! I went to see Jennie yesterday - she did let me in after all, but only cos I was carrying a Grand Caffe Creme Frappuchino from StarBucks... *you see, if you say something a bit cheeky on your blog about someone it is always best to then approach them with a gift :O))*




Right, so, after sitting and faffing with bits of paper and then sitting and stuffing with a big plate of Nacho's it was time for the real Jennie to finally come out to play... yes, followers of WOYWW will have noticed a change in Jennie's deskily habits of late and I am afraid to report back that... she tidies up after each project! *I reckon that she has spent too much time in my Room of Stash and was so impressed with the tidy state of it that she made a resolve to be a neater crafter... mmmm, wonder how long that will last though LOL* Anyways, such was the tidyness (sp?) of her desk that I spotted a couple or three little wooden bobbins... and next to them were some Tattered Florals pre-cut shapes... light bulb moment... you know that I LURVE Mrs Wendy Vecchi and her fantabulous 490 range? Well, Jennie had fair begged me to let her touch my 490 set, so being the generous gal that I am, I let her play with a few (and it was just a few, yes, I truly am that possessive... only joking... as if I could carry a whole set!!) and you know that Mrs Wendy Vecchi is bringing out some new Art Parts soon... well, I am a total copycat and hold my inky paws up when I admit that the idea wasn't originally mine... it was Wendy's... and I borrowed it and tweaked it... and made a little piece that is totally inspired by the amazing art she has been blogging recently using her new Art Parts. Now, over in the UK we have to wait an inordinate amount of time before we can get new stash coming out at CHA... and me being ever so slightly impatient to try Wendy's new idea's and Art Parts... improvised!




Jennie's piece looks totally different to this one, for a start, there are butterflies on hers and none on mine... (if you click on her name you can be transported magically to her blog) I used a massive old jar to draw around to get the mountboard base, die cut a Tattered Floral big flower *nearly killing the Big Shot in the process...least said about that the better... all I will say is PHEW!* Slapped loads of DI's onto stamped and cut out flowers and leaves, used DI's on the bases, Trad Tan on the bobbin, tried to stamp on bobbin, goofed up the stamping, covered said goofed stamping in Tissue Tape... didn't like that too muchly so then wound some threads of knotted string around it... hey voila! A totally inpired by my favourite artist in the whole world ever... yep, that be Wendy V... arty piece... I love it! And now... CANNOT WAIT to get the Art Parts over here and into my room of stash... so pleeeeeeeease, Mr Maker of Art Parts, do some very quickly and very lots of them and bung 'em on a ship destined for my house! Grovel, beg and all of that! Anyways... again... thank you for looking and reading to *almost* the end of yet another shockingly long post...




I shall close by just telling you that Grim has been reading all your comments about "the chair". He is muchly amused by the little squabble that seems to have developed between Andrea and Jennie about who gets to sit on said chair... and he has told me that... he is going to build a fence around it for when peeps some to stay! *although, I know him best and just know that caramel shortcake will most deffo'ly be the best way to bribe him to take down said fence...* but come on ... can you imagine how it could be for me... shavings of wood all over the carpet, wood stain in the living room... and Grim sitting on his chair, fence all around him, watching TV thru a gate in it that no doubt would be deadlocked as soon as his bum left the seat! On that note I shall bid you all a very goodly day and say thank you for your WOYWW comments, I am going to get myself hopping around to see everyone this afternoon :O)) I'm off for a fag and a can of Quattro....hey, does anyone else listen to Absolute 80's? Oh, this is one of their jingles... obviously I wouldn't be having a can of Quattro cos they don't make it anymore... anyone remember it though? Vile fruity flavoured semi fizzy drink of the mid 80's... made from 4 different E numbers, I mean... fruits of course... see, I am off on one of my tangents again and shall wear your eyes out at this rate!!! Am off before I start again ROFL.... TTFN...

Rofl. simply the shortest post I have seen from you in a long time! It was fun, and suffice it to say the machine is working ok... Do love your piece , maybe next time we should make a bigger one.. did you spot the VERY LARGE bobbins in my room.. bet you didn't! I am off now to get my chainsaw oiled, and my beach towel washed in time for coming to yours.I am learning very quickly how to make caramel shortbread just in case Andrea should pop by at the same time..psml
Hugs to you

Kathy Eddy said...

Hels, this is fabulous and so is Jennie's. I don't think Wendy will mind at all, I think she will be honored that you liked hers so much it inspired you to improvise and make your own!

Helen said...

So you had a good time then! Saw both of them on Jennie's first thing - lovely, both of them. When the ship arrives with art parts for you, just remember who your friends are, lol! (although when you get to my WOYWW you may wonder where I'll be putting them....) Have a good day.

Becky T. said...

You did great, Hels! I'm sure Wendy is flattered (and maybe a bit jealous) !!! ;-)

SusanK said...

Hels, you and Jennie did a fab job on taking Wendy's art and making it your own! I, too, have some (okay, more than some) spools of all shapes and sizes. Also some of the wooden shoe forms. Gotta clean (no, reorg) my room so I can make more art like you loverly ladies are doing!

Andrea said...

just divine Hels and Jennie will never make caramel shortbread like I do so I am not at all worried about her thinking she can make it LOL glad you had a great day and do not believe you carried that coffee from London, totally shocked and hope that there said Jennie made you a good lunch :-)
