WOYWW & WOYWWAC (Happy Anniversary)

Its WOYWW's Anniversary today, so congratulations to Julia on a great achievement, a great milestone, well done Julia.  If you would like to have a nose at everyone's desk and annual challenge today then pop over to Julia's place here.

This is what is on my desk this morning, a couple of challenges and some spare letters from my challenge piece for WOYWW.
And to the right we have my basket that is overflowing with challenge projects which will give you a hint as to what I have made for my Anniversary challenge piece.
Further to the right I have some craft purchases, yes more purchases and there was me saying no more last week.
Now to my challenge piece, here is a hint of what I made.  A flower adorns one corner of the piece.
I made a box to match my craft room, which will house all the cards I have made for challenges which can then be used for relatives and friends cards.
This is the top of the box before I put the finishing touches on.  This is a heart made from tissue paper and coloured with DI inks and gold dabber paint.
Here we also have a side view of my box which shows that I have added the WOYWW letters as stipulated as part of the challenge.
My finished box, which also has metal letters added for the WOYWW.  I am quite please with the finished result and it matches my craft room beautifully.
My box was painted with Gesso and then Traditional Tan paint (Claudine Hellmuth) with highlights of gold dabber added.  All the letters and stamped squares were decorated with the same colours.  Have a great Wednesday everyone, and enjoy all the WOYWW desks and the beautiful challenges everyone has created.  Once again, Happy Anniversary to Julia and WOYWW.

This box is decorated to the nines. It is fabulous. I can't believe that heart is made from tissue paper. It really caught my eye. Great WOYWWAC.

Julia Dunnit said...

Your AC project is lovely Tracy...seems to me to a horrible shame to have to add that silly acronym - it's a work of art for sure. And if it's any help - I'd have had to buy those tiddlybits too!

WOW Tracy your box is just awsome, i love the heart, but it doesn't look like tissue paper, it has a real 3d quality..

Kathy said...

Ohhh what an absolutely wonderful WOYWWAC project. It's so beautiful. Thanks for letting us all see your desk and all your lovely stash

Lynne Phelps said...

Gorgeous box and I LOVE your craft room! I think I would have to give mine a good clean up before it would be messy enough to photograph, LOL! It is WAY beyond messy! Question - that heart is brilliant, but I don't understand how you made it with tissue paper? It looks like it has so much dimension!

Also thanks for your lovely comment on my Alice in Wonderland wall piece, but as it already has it's assigned place in my foyer, I will not need to take you up on your offer to give it a place of pride in your craft room, LOL!! Although of course I am deeply honored by the offer! ;-)
