I am sorry to say that since creating the Challenge Blog "Less is More" over two years ago, my time spent regularly snooping around the desks of the world via Julia's wonderful blog, diminished radically. It took me so long to comment on all the submissions to LIM that I felt I couldn't do justice in the commenting department at WOYWW. However, today I thought I would try to join in again and get myself a snoop at the same time.
This is the state of my desk this morning. What is that lot? I hear you say... Well, yesterday I looked outside to see that 'the man wot does' in the garden had thrown out a whole bunch of plants to replace them with new ones and bulbs etc. I thought it such a waste that I went out and had a rummage in the rubbish bag and rescued lots of flowers heads and a few leaves.
These I put between bits of card and ran them through my Cuttlebug, to leave the squishy colours you see here. I use them for backgrounds etc as I love the natural colours they produce.
You do have to have some paper towel on hand to mop up the juice which is squished out and also ensure that the machine is cleaned afterwards, but I think you'll agree that the end result is worth it!
Aren't they fun!
I'm off for a snoop now!
