Hello bloggy friends!!  If you are visiting from the awesome Julia's blog for WOYWW you are in the right place!  This week, I am showing my work desk and what I made too.  First, here is my desk.

I was really busy making my project for the Tattered Floral Challenge at Tim Holtz's Blog.

The challenge is to make a tattered flower using his Tattered Floral Die,   I am sure many of you  have already linked up!! He gives a whole amazing tutorial on his blog.  I followed it for the flowers, then added the flowers to a door knob hanger I made and embellished.  

 Here is my door knob hanger!
I followed Tim's process for making the Grunge Paper Flower.  I didn't have the tissue paper he used so I used Tissue Tape instead.  I then used a variety of shades of Distress Stain.  When it was dry I cut the tattered flowers out.

I sprayed some burlap with Dylusions Spray Ink and inked some Claudine Hellmuth Sticky Back Canvas and cut them with the die too.  Then I assembled the flowers and put a brad in the center.

(This is a close up of 2 of the flowers)
After "smooshing" my flowers I got busy with my door hanger.  I used my Distress Inks to color the cardstock.  Since gauze is my obsession, I had to put some on the door hanger.  I glued on the flowers, and added embellishments like Baubles, Metal WingsMemo Pins, and a Key.  I also added a "faux gold test lens"  I bought from

This is the flower that has the wings.

And there you have it!!  A very busy desk and a project to prove it!!

Now go and check out all the other productive desks out there!!  You know you want to "peek"!!!
