WOYWW 174

Hay Desk Surfers,  
Sorry i've been absent for a month, the joys of ill health {said extremely sarcastically} have kept me from my crafty endeavors.
My desk has looked like this for the past couple of weeks, the last thing I managed was to have a little play with my new Gelli Arts plate, 
I have to say it wasn't as easy as I thought it might be, picking the right colours and patterns to get a great look was a tad tricky, but that is in no way a reflection on the product, it's awesome, I just need a lot more practice. lol.
***
The other thing I hope you don't mind me sharing is my excitement
SQUEEEEEEEEEEEL
My readers submission made the front cover of Nov's Craft Stamper
out in shops Friday, and already available online in several places.
This is the first time I have sent anything to CS Mag, so to receive my sub copy and find my work on the front after all the rubbish health stuff i've been going through lately was a total thrill.
Ok i'll shut up now
Thanks for stopping by, and happy desk hopping, I hope to visit you soon x
Stay Inky

You have ever right to be jumping up and down! I did a happy dance for you all the way over the see!

Julia Dunnit said...

WOW!! WOW! Fantastic full cover of a national, well deserved you! I shall look forward to my copy even more now. I don't know anything about the gelli plates, so am mystified! Don't overdo it gal, feeling better now doesn't mean you can make up for lost time!!

I've linked up at WOYWW for you. Sorry. Blogger says it wouldnt accept the HTML and then it did anyway. HUh?

Welcome back Minxy, I've been absent for ages too, but just from being busy. I hope you are starting to feel better now- nothing more miserable that not being well. Congrats on the Craft Stamper, that is fabulous.Can't wait to get my copy now. Love Shaz xx #60

How lovely to see you back. A big congrats for making the cover ....well done a gorgeous entry which deserves to be on the cover. I also can't believe you have a Gelli Plate. Your prints are beautiful. I have just ordered mine and still waiting waiting waiting. But I suppose it has a bit to travel before it gets to OZ. Enjoy your Gelli plate and I may have to seek you advice if I get stuck.

How incredibly lucky for you. I'm so impressed, because I have never tried to send aything to a craft magazine, much less get on the COVER. What an honor.

Hope you are soon feeling much better. It's no fun being sick.

You are really lucky, because I have always wanted one of those Gelli plates but could never afford them.

Happy WOYWW from # 28.

Brilliant news Nicky! So good to see you get the recognition you deserve. Maybe one day I'll pluck up the courage to submit something. Good to hear you're feeling better too.

Fabulous work Nicky, it really deserves to be on the front cover, such a creative piece of altered art.
Your workdesk looks very organised and full of goodies.
Hope you feel much better real soon.

Congratulations on making the front page of CS - I've had my copy for a few days now so saw it and loved it - the technique is on my to-try list. I've not heard of Gelli plates until today so am intrigued, sigh, something else to keep me poor :)) Hope you have a good week and happy WOYWW. Elizabeth x #49
