Sunday Special Number 2!

Wow! Sunday already! But at least it was sunny today!  A quick photo call of this weeks activities:
One (little) book of ruination completed last night:

Yay! Only 2 more to finish!  Here's his big brother that he hides inside....
I've only done the front cover so you'll have to wait a bit before I show the finished product!

Yesterday morning was spent at the Artistic Stamper with the lovely Jennie trying not to tread any wax into the carpet (otherwise I'd be barred for life!  I even got the 'Pointy Finger' oh yes!  I was very good tho so I think I'm allowed back?)   Anyway, This is the outcome of our 3 hour workshop:
Very subtle colouring for me! (and not sure why this one is on it's side?) Lurve the new Distress Paints! I do tend to use them with a lot of water in a water coloury way (but then my background is water colour/pen and ink so maybe not surprising?)

The flower and honeycomb are made from moulds.  The rest of the canvas is also covered in wax! How cool is that! (actually the wax was ...ahem....warmish?  Got a sore thumb ;-)  ) Oops, sorry! Sore thumb is from a nasty paper cut!  Who knew crafting could be so dangerous??!!! I love my canvas and was hoping to do one today....but the sun came out!!!

Before I go I'd like to enter the following challenges:
