WOYWW - a Secret

Hello there, goodness, doesn't time fly, it's Wednesday again and time for another peek at the desks of crafters all over the world. Why don't you pop on over to Julia's blog to check it out and click on some crafty desk links.

So, what's on the bears' desk this week? Sh, it's a secret! We can reveal though, that this craft mess is creating our very own piece for our Secret Garden themed challenge. Can you spot any clues as to what will be on our artwork?

Ooh, what's this? A brick effect embossing folder, hmm, interesting.

The finished piece will be for our art journal, here it is. We still need to add a title, but haven't decided what yet. This is a Pink Pig 8x8 journal. We'd wanted to start an art journal for a while, but weren't sure which sort of book would be best, until a friend suggested the pigs of pinkness.

Some distress inks may feature on our challenge piece

dabbed onto the page with these.

All will be revealed on challenge close day, which is 12th August. We'd love it if you'd join in with our challenge, details can be found Here

We're off to look at some crafty desks now, ttfn.

With love from the bears 🐻

  9. OOoh! A brick work embossing folder. Must. Not. Covet. That is a great looking album you have there. I think 8x8 is a nice size to work with. Distress inks... can't go wrong there.

  10. Very intriguing, you tease-y bears--will you show us next week?


  11. A secret garden sounds very interesting. Your journal is looking good. Lovin the bears :)

  12. Well clearly there's a bear in there, so I had to paws for pondering the secret behind the brick wall. Also needed the bear essentials for the vote so went back to early days to nose about. I half expected to find a woozle but no, just bears, not even a piglet...or could a pink pig journal suffice, I ask myself.
    Well yes, if it's late enough and I am sufficiently full of red wine and sleep deprived because of the Olympics.
    I have enjoyed myself. Trust you are all doing the same.
    Sweet dreams, and thanks for your visit.
