WOYWW #505

Happy Wednesday and happy WOYWW! Every Wednesday, I get to share my desk top along with other bloggers on the Stamping Ground blog for the WOYWW linkage. It's a fun way to get to know others throughout the world and to take a peek into craft rooms/areas/desks.

Click on over there to read more about it and to take a peek or two.

Here's my desk this morning:
I decided to try my hands on a messy canvas. I painted random colors on a canvas and let it dry. After that I used my cricut and cut out a mask. Once the mask was on the canvas, I painted white acrylic paint over everything. From this view, it looks great, but if you look closer, you can see that the paint seeped through the mask a lot.

I cut the mask using shelf liner I purchased from Walmart. I learned my lesson.  Next time, I'll actually use a better quality vinyl. For now, I'll probably use a black sharpie and outline it so it won't be as noticeable.

This sentiment is a Freebie of the Week on Cricut Design Space. Don't you love it?!

Be sure to click on over to the WOYWW blog and do some peeking!

  1. Love that idea Dorlene and I'm sure outlining in black will solve the issue with seepage. Happy WOYWW. Sarah #4

  3. Hi Dorlene, quite right to not waste something because it doesn't quite turn out as expected, there is always something that can be done to the project. Have a lovely creative week and a happy woyww, Angela x12x

  5. I do love it, it’s fun! I love the idea of your canvas too, with the colour underneath. And I shall of course, remember your tip about proper vinyl....at some point after I’ve been cheap and tried something else!
