Rearanging to make anniversary card
needed to make an anniversary card or two, but desk was a mess- again. So to make it more functional, I did this:-
I removed a lot of the junk off of it, and brought down my work station from the loft. I now have a three in one desk.
The view your currently looking at is it’s mixed media set up. The top of the workstation has (very kindly) been covered in glue, paint and i don’t know what else – by my very kind kids!!!. Its rather lumpy and bumpy and hence got covered up by an under-sheet. This can easily be changed and recycled later- so hence the mixed media section.
The other side of the board hasn’t been touched by children. So fortunately i can simply flip it over when i want a super smooth surface for writing, and cleaner processes, like making those anniversary card’s.
And the whole thing can be lifted off the desk and kept on the bed – during the day. So i then have a third work surface for ‘dirtier’ metal work.
This work surface really helps bring the height of the desk up to a more adult level -till i can afford a new desk ( or a studio). This current one was built for a ten year old – I’m sure, and it causes a lot of back pain to sit hunched at it. Hopefully this height lift will aid me at least some of the time. I have also managed to even out the lighting a little too.
Yes- i know what your thinking –
and you’d be right it defiantly didn’t stay that clean for long . I just had to test it out, so here it is again a bit later on –
so i had some family anniversaries coming up and thought i’d get started on some card creations, as you can see that nice clean desk got cluttered again very quickly. But raising the surface and the change in lighting defiantly made it a nicer place to work. Heres the end result –
Two same, but different anniversary cards. I’ve used some of tim holtz’s embossing dies, and some scraps from my box. I added a few stamps (sorry don’t know at this time who there by), and simple some ancient confetti and rub-ons.
thats it for now except to remind you to check out the other desks at the stamping ground.
love and cyber hugs
c u soon.
