WOYWW 310: What’s On My Work Desk This Week?
This week, I am in the process of creating a care package for a friend who is going through a difficult time, and as part of that package, I wanted to create a card with a positive, affirming message that would make her feel uplifted every time she looked at it.
To reflect the situation at hand, I decided to incorporate “something old and something new” into the design!
For “something old”, I decided to use the paper scraps from the Faith, Hope & Love card I created a few weeks ago (CTMH Silhouette). Not only does it decrease some of the clutter on my workspace – it also gives me the challenge of using the same base elements to create a different card!
For “something new”, I decided to use one of the new Unity Stamp sets I recently purchased. I pulled out three sets that I could possibly incorporate into the design – but ultimately, I chose an image and sentiment from Give With All Your Heart.
I angled the image and the sentiment to add a sense of “movement” into the design – and I embellished it with coordinating floral ribbon (CTMH), lovely flowers (Petaloo), pretty pewter pearls and rhinestone bling to make it beautiful and feminine!
A pretty lacy white doily with black distressed edges peeks out and ties all of the layered pieces together.
Now it’s your turn to share your creations with us! What have you created or acquired this week? Whether you’re showing off your desk, your latest acquisitions, or your latest creation – be sure to share it with our creative community at one of our weekly parties as well!
