WOYWW is one year old!
Congratulations to Julia for starting this and working so hard to keep it going. It's become a phenomenon a very big thing! For those who haven't heard about the mega huge WOYWW movement, hop over to this post on Julia's blog where it is all explained. So, on with the motley... here is my anniversary piece (on my very messy desk)
Ta-da! I have finally altered my bean tin (actually a tomato tin). Regular WOYWWers may recall seeing the poor nekkid tin holding some of my pens, pencils and assorted things that would fit in it, sitting on my desk awaiting adornment. Well, I thought it would be a fitting anniversary tribute to finally decorate the poor neglected thing. Of course, this meant my desk got even messier as I had to empty it out, and then I was working until late last night to finish it so stuff is strewn all over the desk (whaddya mean "what's different"?!)
I covered it in grungepaper that I had inked with Wild Honey and Peeled Paint DI then stamped with Paper Artsy Hot Pick stamps (purchased at the Artsy Crafts event... I lurve those stamps) in archival Olive, Coffee and jet black inks to give some depth. I added a few extra little birds from Crafty Individuals. I then made some holes with the BIA and laced it on with some hairy, dangly thread stuff I had laying around. (oh, I painted the tin with a Willow paint dabber first).
And here is the money shot. The famous acronym stamped across the top.
My pens and stuff can now sit proudly in their new, suitably adorned tin.
OK, I'm on leave this week so I can hopefully visit more desks this week. Looking forward to seeing everyone on this special date!
