WOYWW 259: the one where she got ahead of herself


It's nearly here.  The 5th anniversary of WOYWW, that is.  Can't you just feel the electricity in the air?  I'm sure Julia, our desker Queen at Stamping Ground can!  It seems I got a bit ahead of myself when I announced last week I would show my completed ATCs.

So you don't think I fibbed, here is the one I made for friends,

and here is the one I made for Julia.

In case you're interested, I manipulated these in PhotoShop using the Gaussian blur on the first scan, and the radial blur on the second scan. As for the rocking horse of the week?  It's also a BLUR!!

My apologies if I missed you last week.  I've had a terrible time keeping my internet going.  It's been all I could do to just get my posts posted.  However, if you leave your number you get at Julia's, I promise to find a way to get to you this week.

I like the second one. When I saw the first I thought something had gone wrong with my laptop! Making the most of my early wake up call (the dawn chorus outside my window) to get ahead with commenting this morning!

Fiona #none yet!

It looks like a few of us a waiting patiently for Julia to click onto her computer. Love what you have done with your ATC's.... very clever. But, I would expect nothing less from B & E.

You always refresh Julia's at the right second - I mis-timed it and went from 3 to 8... you're as big a tease as me with your atc's... Happy WOYWW. Helen 8

Nan G said...

....and that's just the back of the ATCs. :) I have one left shall I save it for Bleubeard? I'll have the Girls sign it..well,I'll try to...

Jackie said...

I have been working on my ATC 's ready for nest week as well..... Oh Elizabeth you made me laugh with your comment this morning... You know me so well!!!!! I have to admit this weekend just gone I had been working on a scrapbook journal layout my first of baby Lara and my desk was left and photographed as I put the journal to one side to dry as it's not quite finished! I will show you it next week .... I will be guilty for years to come of baby Lara pictures in scrapbooks journals etc, she may well be my only grandchild has my daughter has been rather ill for a number of years and not of the best health another pregancy would involve me looking after her and Lara for nine months while she got through it again as she was so very ill and hospitalised.... I am going on a bit today Elizabeth!!! Take care and I hope to swap ATC's next week with you

Belinda Basson said...

You are a tease! Looking forward to the party next week! #25

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Wow, psychedelic, man! A Gaussian effect, huh? When I worked in TV, light years ago, the engineers used to De-gauss the monitors with this massive magnet thingy and the effect on screen was much the same as your pics!
I'm looking forward to the crop very much but shall be glad when all the cooking is over :-)
Hugs, LLJ 21 xx

Mrs.D said...

I'm sorry you are having technology problems, everything on your page does look a bit blurred! Was the rocking horse going so fast that it is just a blur as well. Seriously though it is maddening when technolgy fails when we are so dependant on it these days.
Bless you

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh ha! How funny - I really thought for a minute that my eyes needed an extra rub after this early morning! There is a lot of anticipation about next week - it's more exciting than any birthday! Am very sorry that your internet is an issue - there's nothing so inconvenient I've decided. Unless your car isn't working!

Neil said...

Good morning. Can't believe it's Wednesday again already! Thanks for letting us in to peek at your creative space.
Well, sort of LOL. The colours look cool though.
Hope you have a good week too.

Patsy Paterno said...

Oh dear! I kept waiting for the picture to get clearer! The first ATC I made for you never got to you. I made a second one! Put it in an envelope and addressed it to you, and now I have no idea where it went! Good grief! Oh we'll... IT CAN't hide from me forever! Patsy

Krisha said...

Boy, can you be sneaky! LOL

I am up early to catch a few desks before going to get Megan.
She is only contagious to small children 5 yrs and under, so I'm not worried.

I fell asleep before linking up last night so my # is high this week.....grin.
Have a question for you but will send it in e-mail.

fairy thoughts said...

Ha ha I thought I'd lost a contact lens then .... That's a tease. Julia didn't give me one from you. Maybe she will sort them out on the day.... She has a lot on at the moment lol. Not sure how that wil work so she doesn't have to pay loads of postage to send back to peeps

Angela Radford said...

Very funny Elizabeth, I wonder if I copied it and played with it on my Photoshop program if it would go back to normal, only joking lol!
Happy crafting, Angela x 41

Annie said...

I'm only just doing my rounds to catch up with all my blogging friends....it's been a busy day with lots of extra cuddles needed by my little poorly munchkins.
Really love the effects of your ATCs :-)
Hugs,

Elizabeth, what amazing ATC's! I love them! Can't wait to see them properly :) Cx #76

peggy apl said...

Ha, ha, how mysterious, Elizabeth! And what a clever way to hide the ATC designs!

Vicki Miller said...

What very interesting images. I have not tried those filters, but I do love the radial blur. Looking forward to seeing your ATCs next week

Twiglet said...

Very clever effect! Must remember to take pics of my ATCs.

Neet said...

Love your manipulation Elizabeth. You know what? I have never swapped an atc or anything with you so if you go to my blog (yes, you have been and commented today) you will see my email addie symbol so if you send me your addie I will send an atc to you and Bleubeard. Don't need one back - just sending one 'cos I want to.
I love cats that purr and if Bleubeard purrs at my desk you both deserve an atc.
Hugs, Neet 18 (so you find me quickly)

Swirly goodness. Just playing catch up after being away for a week. Sorry about your internet. xox

fairy thoughts said...

Hi Elizabeth
Thank you for your second comment, julia did comment later on my post .... Basically she forgot to bring it:-) I think she has a lot on at the moment ( crop)
We are hoping to meet up again probably in July. I am hoping to swap with a few others at the crop so I will send julia a prepaid envelope to post them to me .... Didn't think about it the other say either. I would like to send you an ATC anyway so
Please send me your address by e mail is probably easiest
Thanks again and have a great week
Janet

Nan G said...

Hey Elizabeth, I too will making more ATCs. So I will have one for you and Bleubeard! Send me your address please...froggydesigns3 at yahoo.com

Happy Weekend to you!
