WOYWW 136 - Curtain Up!


Another week, another WOYWW....  head via the link to Dunnit Dimensions and let the desk -hopping commence!

For me, a short post this week as my desk hasn't changed an awful lot.  Apart from some new stash I bought on Saturday from Shopkeeper Gal before heading off to the crop.  Some nice bargains too - a fab stamp of Venice for starters, for just £1!  She's also started stocking Craft Stamper, which is an absolute bonus because otherwise I have to go all the way to Amesbury for it or buy it online - nowhere else locally sells it (and I'm too lazy to ask my corner shop to stock it). 


The crop was fun - I didn't actually do any cropping - instead I made a trident for the panto.  Here it is in it's finished state - on my real workdesk this week because I've been painting it in the kitchen where the light is better and there's space to lay it out.  Made from a broom handle, multiple layers of double walled corrugated cardboard, some specialist road tape (don't ask!), four Maya Road chipboard scrolls, and silver and copper paint.  




And here's a gratuitous shot of Mr B as Long John Silver at rehearsals on Sunday.  ROFL.  We did an entire day, and by the end of it, he was exhausted.  We all were.


Curtain up on Friday 13th!   Arrrrr!

Having made many props in my time for school productions, I am very impressed by your trident! It's worthy of Neptune himself!! But whoever's painted the scenery is no slouch either. Mr B looks amazing as Long John Silver! His 'wooden' leg must ache like crazy at the end though!!

It's refreshing to see a trident on a workdesk this week. Probably the most unique thing I have seen so far!

I bet that wooden leg really makes him ache, I'd say break a leg but it looks like he already has! Wonderful new stash, even better that it's cheap and I really wish I could get Craft Stamper over here! Love the trident, it looks like you're about to use a little dish of brussels sprouts as accents!!

I think Mr B looks super cool... shame about the leg! It's a brave man who dresses in costume, acts AND lets you take a pic and put it on your blog. Praise indeed!

It looks absolutely fantastic in the finished flesh...way better than even I imagined from seeing it nearly finished after the crop. I wonder if you'll ever have time to scrapbook at a crop!!! Wishing you leg breaking for friday!
