What's On Your Work Desk? Wednesday 280

It's time for WOYWW or What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday - find out more about WOYWW on the Stamping Ground blog run by the lovely Julia Dunnit.  

I don't have very much on my desk today other than the remnants of yesterday's card making - some stamped images and off cuts of paper/card, a set of snowflake stamps from Oak House Studio which I used to make the background for the heart with and the embossing along the edge of the gelli print paper.  I'm hoping to make up the off cuts into another card topper.  You can see the card I made yesterday below.  I would have made a couple more cards but I got a bit obsessed with getting the photography correct or attempted to.

I'm off to peruse as many of the WOYWW desks.

That's an amazing card. I love it! The colours do show so much better in natural lighting. I have a difficult time with blog photos in fall and winter because of the drearier days. We do our best. ;) Thanks for having me visit.

I LOVE the fact that the heart could also be an apple... it has that little, reddish stalk. Happy crafting, happy woyww and a hug from Holland, Marit #58

Beautiful card, Anita! I'm always amazed how much the light affects the quality of the photos. I try to take mine too in natural light, but sometimes it's not possible. Happy desk hopping! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #50

Good morning, Anita. Thank for stopping by my desk this week. Always a pleasure to see your smile. I am determined to use those items on my desk. LOL

I love the colors you're working with and the card turned out great!
Creative Blessings! ~Kelly #56

What a beautiful card, Anita. Very interesting having the two shots under different lighting. I always check the colour balance in my photo editor - I have daylight LEDs in my ARTHaven and they do tend to veer a little too much towards the blue, and restoring a bit of red and yellow always does the trick! Photographing under incandescent light, though, gives awful results that are totally irredeemable... Daylight is definitely best!

Thanks for your visit and your nice comment. So glad you like my recent projects. I am making the mini-album for our niece, about her grandfather (my dad) who died last December. That photo was of my parents' wedding in 1947. They were married for 66 years - not bad going! Mum is now 93.

I was given a needle felting kit a while back, and started using it last night at the felt class. I love doing it! I can't make up my mind which I prefer, wet felting or needle felting. All soooo much fun! I have now completed the felt poppies and they are attached to a hair clip, and have some nice gold beads in their centres which really set them off. Photos to follow really soon!

Happy belated WOYWW,

It's a beautiful card Anita - and the photogrpahy works in both lights I think. But what do I know, my best photos are rubbish by comparison!
