WOYWW 157: the aftermath

The Queen's Jubilee is over and so is the 3rd Anniversary of WOYWW.


What an aftermath! Many of you had trouble seeing the rocking horse I showed last week, so here it is removed from under my sewing machine and now in plain sight.


There's nothing on my desk or my sewing machine this week. My ATC is racing its way to Minxy in the UK. Of course I'm not going to show it until she gets it. This is from a scan where I used the "liquify" filter in Photoshop. Hope it makes sense once I show it when Minxy gets it.

Now let's hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground for the rest of the aftermath of this wild Wednesday blog hop. You'll be glad you did. And please don't forget your number when you visit!

Hi Elizabeth, lovely to see the rocking-horse this week. And what you've done to your ATC is fantastic - love the mix of colours and look forward to seeing it unscrambled next week. Have a lovely WOYWW. Elizabeth x too early to have a number :)

Rita said...

He's Christmasy and kind of Scandinavian looking at the same time. That liquifying thing is strange, but compelling. Have a good one! :)

sandee said...

wow, at first I thought that ATC was a new background you've been working on! lol I can't wait to see it, I'm showing mine this week...too hard for me to keep secrets, lol waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

VonnyK said...

Love your rocking horse, he is a fine fellow. That squidgied ATC is super, can't wait to see the normal one. The colours all mix in fabulously.
Have a great week.

Can't wait to see the ATC. I've been so busy lately and didn't get in on the 3rd anniversary festivities!

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

hi there Elizabeth - yes you are right still in love with England!! but we have always sat up and watched all the royal events kinda mad about - and yes you have totally distorted the atc so we have not idea of it! Shaz in Oz.x

Hiya, happy WOYWW to you. Hope you have a good old creative week. Thanks for the peek into your world. Fun effect with the ATC!

BJ said...

Hi Elizabeth, yep dead excited and even made another Jubilee spread in my AB yesterday. Thought I'd keep it for another post but have to say I was inspired by "your" background homework. Seems I need more stuff like that as this background stuff and paint is alien to me as a scrapper! - LOL. I did get into a right fix with the paint and got it on my last Jubilee page so had to re-do some of that aswell! Did get out some grease proof paper to put inbetween the pages to stop them sticking untill they are completely dry but still need to resort to baby powdering the pages - LOL. BJ#32

Redanne said...

Oooh your rocking horse is a magnificent specimen, really lovely fellow. Loving your ATC, love using that technique, I don't do it often enough, thanks for reminding me! Have a happy WOYWW, Anne x #24

Helen said...

Interesting tease! Liquify huh~ It has been a cool week here in Okieland this past week. I am so glad that the storms have been getting less fierce but I am dreading the heat of the summer this year. Hope some of you plants are recovering after last weeks beating! Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Vickie #51

Annie said...

Liquify? Too clever for little old me :-)

Tertia said...

Love the colours on the ATC and I actually think it would make an awesome ATC just as you have posted it!
Happy WOYWW

Neet said...

That looks like a lot of paint mixed up - something I would love to do - ooh, want to get my finger in there.
Now I am sure I have seen that rocking horse before - where I ask?
Thanks for sharing, Hugs, Neet #6 xx

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Glad you enjoyed the Jubilee too - we've had a ball in the UK and rediscovered our patriotism, I think.. The splurgy red pic looks like something from the Space journey in 2001 - a Space Odyssey!! LOL
Hugs, LLJ #70 xx

JoZart said...

Love the liquify filter... I'll investigate that asap! It looks like it will be the rocking horse in the previous pic morphed!
Thanks for popping in on me... in haste this week as we're off to Germany to see family! woo hoo!
Love joZarty x
MY AB is on the way but life has intervened!

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh you are too clever! The liquify filter has given you a whole new background...I must confess to trying really hard to work out what the picture is...but I can't!

Create With Joy said...

Hi Elizabeth

I am SO happy that my ATC made it safely to your home! I don't know why our e-mails don't talk any more - I miss chatting with you!

Anyway, great share and I'm loving the latest tutorial a few posts down - don't forget to share at Inspire Me Monday (I'd email you but it isn't working, lol!)

Have a wonderful week and give Bleubeard a hug!

Ooh, that looks interesting - trying to guess what it might be!

I managed to miss posting last week - would love to send you an ATC or even swap if you're up for it. Please let me know either via my blog or at hsalthouse@yahoo.com. Thanks!

Diane said...

This would make an awesome background!
P.S. I hope you're creative mojo is returning....

CraftygasheadZo said...

Super rocking horse, and that scan is so intriguing! Take care my WOYWW friend. Zo xx 65

Bridget Larsen said...

Horse is awesome. did you try a closeup or macro setting on your camera to take close up shots?
Bridget #21

Glenda said...

Wonderful rocking horse and I can't wait to see more of your scan! Happy WOYWW

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Haha love the sneaky way of showing the ATC ;-)
BTW the tutorial of Christy's didn't actually include corrugated card it was just that she used texture paste and the Simon Says challenge was to use texture. The actual video I watched is this one http://christytomlinson.typepad.com/christytomlinson/2012/04/behind-the-art-video-april-mixed-media-kit.html (if you go to her website click on 'Tutorials' and scroll down to the post for April 26th).

KatzElbows said...

You're meaner than I am, and I thought I was mean. At least I showed a corner of my ATC! Of course, now you have a really cool ATC background, so maybe I'm just jealous!

cheers,
rachel #78

Jacqueline said...

And here was me thinking that was a REALLY cool background, wondering how you did that and would that be the technique for the next lesson in the Altered Book course instead of a 'sneaky peek' at an ATC ... lol...

Thanks for sharing

Happy WOYWW

Well you're ATC remains a total mystery to me, NO pics. lol! -Mari #124

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Your pictures have been eaten by evil aliens. I've never monkeyed with photoshop or other photo editing software for different effects, but someday I should try that out.

Monica said...

No pics for me just a little square torn in half with two pink dots and pink line in one half. never found what this means except the photos will not appear.

Erica said...

Hey! Thanks for stopping by! The Kings are the local hockey team. They play in the same building as the Lakers. The last time they made it this far was 1993 and they failed. This time they are on the brink of winning it all.

Spyder said...

I bet you got real fed up with us all saying where's the pictures! I came back to see if your loading picture thingy was working! YAY!!

Erika said...

Ooo can't wait to see your ATC it looks very interesting after a visit to photoshop. Just playing catch up today, nice to see your full mat as we only saw a wee bit last week.
Have a great end to the week, hugs Erika. #61

Twiglet said...

I love the liquify treatment - its a work of art in itself! I'm a bit late getting round the WOYWW desks this week - been busy making 3 more little wedding waistcoats. Have a great week. x Jo

Marilyn Rock said...

This is the first I've been able to pick up your photo of the rocking horse. Beautiful! Have a safe and happy weekend my friend! xxoo

Queen Of Toys said...

Good to see the rocking horse is not stuck under the sewing machine still and you are a clever tease with the photoshop of the ATC' LOL

Happy Crafting

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Now that I can see what is going on I have to stop and gasp. I love that ATC as is! Okay, so that is a distorted version of it but I'm a distorted gal, what can I say. It is quite vividly colored. I can't wait to see what it really is.

Joynana said...

Love the rocking horse and can't wait to see the ATC. #92

Shoshi said...
