two "firsts" and woyww 152

(If you wanna see What's on my Workdesk, Wednesday, except it's really Thursday
right now, just scroll past all that yammer there . . .)

Well, it's time for my first column at Unruly Paper Arts.  When I joined the Unruly
team, I was so excited, it sounded great, yay, go team.  Now it's more like, "WHAT

the latest issue of Unruly Paper Arts--Wedding Wonders
Do me a favor, will you?  Check out my column, and let me know--kindly, please--
if I'm even shooting at the right target.  More tutorial-y?  Less wordy?  Don't drink
two cups of coffee before writing the next one? I can make stuff all the live long day,
but write a column . . . hmm.

Here's my second first, if that makes any sense at all--my first finished design team
project as a real life Rogue Redhead--YES!  (This definitely falls under the category
of "make stuff," whew!)

Finished off the pocket book I'd started a while ago:
Relish Reading

 You may remember this layout, it was finished a while back . . .
Tuesday Treasures--the railway tokens and velvet leaves!     
Some of my favorite vintage bits right now--the lightbulb pins, railway tokens, and
the velvet milliner's leaves--see Tuesday Treasures if you'd like to share this week!

Here you can really see that fabulous background stamp, also in the Relish Reading:
Relish Reading
Beach Babes

Beach Babes
These sets both have large background stamps that go perfectly with the
images--large enough I stamped the background of both these tags at the
same time.  Want to see more pieces made with these stamps?  Check out
the Rogue's Gallery and Customer and Guest Gallery at the RRD blog site.

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday?  152

Beautiful projects Trisha, but am very puzzled........cannot find the on line Unruly magazine anywhere. Was expecting to see it as a whole rather than just projects and pictures on the Unruly I missing something? x

Bernice said...

What a lot of lovely wee storage drawers - and are those ALL the colours of Stampin Up ink pads?!

trisha too said...

Yep, Bernice, they're all Stampin' Up, but I got a lot of them on ebay a while back, so MUCH cheaper than brand new, and still "juicy!"

Julia--those eggs are leftover from an Easter make, oh brother, you can tell I don't tidy my desk! And those images ARE Rogue, leftover from the finish of the tag book. :)

VonnyK said...

They are all so beautiful, love the colours.
