WOYWW 574 – moving on with my colouring

Good morning, everyone. We are gathered here today to show off our crafty workspaces for WOYWW (What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday) and you can join in HERE.

It seemed that I had spent a very long time colouring in mushrooms/toadstools etc for Module 1 of the Ink Lily colouring classes. Yesterday I decided that I needed to move on, so took photographs and submitted them for assessment before I spent a few more hours fiddling with the blending.

This morning on my crafty table I have started Module 2, which includes some rocks and foliage. Relatively small stamps this time too, so less time consuming to cover the areas with small dots (a new technique to me).

I went into a big Fibromyalgia flare yesterday evening (probably caused by going out cycling, my electric failing to start properly and attempting to cycle up a steep hill without the additional power!) and was actually forced to go to bed early. I didn’t get a restful night’s sleep, so I am taking it very slow today and may even have a nap this morning!

At the end of last week I made a card. I have good intentions to do a blog post for it and enter some challenges (just like the old times), but that hasn’t happened yet. I used the latest freebies from Design Cuts to create the backing paper and topper. How many of you remember My Craft Studio (or even still use it now)? I hadn’t used it for years (it was always a really good program and I used it a lot for inserts/address labels), but then found a Facebook group and now I am hooked again. Even bought a few CD roms to add to my collection. I have the fancy new software/apps, but sometimes it is nice to just keep it simple.

I hope everyone is well and have enjoyed the wonderful warm/sunny weather. Back to a cold northerly wind in Pembrokeshire and a bit of rain last night. Not enough for the farm, but better than nothing.

Canva – Android mobile app

Ali Wade Designs on YouTube! A quickly filmed video showing the main features of the Canva Android app – with specific reference to using it for scrapbooking or greeting cards etc.

This was the first time I had really looked at the Android app, but I was very impressed with the capabilities and resources. Will be going back in and finding out a lot more, so I can share Tips & Tricks with you in another video.

If you have any questions or want me to look at anything in particular – with the Android app, iPad app or the full desktop version on Windows 10 (sorry, I don’t have a Mac or iPhone) – then email me at hello@aliwade.com.

(My next video will be showing the iPad app and then another with the Desktop version on Windows PC.)
