WOYWW 13th October

It's Wednesday, which means it's time to hop on over to Julia's Blog, link in and join the fun.
I have to apologise, last Wednesday a work colleague was taken ill and I had to accompany him to the hospital and wait for his wife to show up and take over, so I didn't get around many desks, and those I did I was very late commenting on.
Anyway, since last Wednesday I have continued to work on my display box and here is the progress so far. I carried on spraying shimmer mists and blending on inks until I was happy with the result, then I started on the backgrounds for the niches.  Most of the smaller 2" squares have papers from the Vintage Shabby paper stack, some stamped and others left nekkid.  The larger niches I just inked and stamped plain white cardstock.  I've been adding bits and pieces from my ephemera stash gradually.  The blue taxi is stolen from one of DDs board games.  I was after a silver car from a monopoly set but they didn't have one :(  So I purloined a blue plastic taxi and spruced it up a bit with blue Inca Gold.  The rock with the frog on it in the top left niche is something the kids brought me when they went on a school trip to the Natural History Museum years ago.  The little figures in the bottom left niche were my gran's.  I think they are lead!   The Paper Artsy button badge was given to me at by l!n Brown at Ally Pally.  The rest is just general stuff I had in my stash that I have either purchased or found over time.
I still have a few bits to add and a couple of things to finish off, then it will be time to concentrate on the outside.  It might be finished next Wednesday for a final show and tell :)
Happy Wednesday everyone, looking forward to visiting your desks!
