WOYWW 90

What's on my workdesk this week? A mess. Sorry Julia, though I try I can't be tidy ALL the time!
So here it is........ In the middle is a piece of card with scrunched up tissue and alcohol ink. (When I have not got any specific ideas I tend to just create a background or random piece that satisfies my need to do something then later it will get used in a project). On the right there is something that I can't show you yet (So, no looking, ok?) and behind that is the card made yesterday. In amongst all the other chaos is a couple of new paint tubes; Eco friendly. VERY VERY happy with them, they are AMAZING. I got them from the Craft Barn over the weekend and am pleased I did.
Since there is not much happening on my desk that is photoworthy I thought I'd do a couple of closer shots of my bits and bobs tray since a few of you seem to want to rummage!



Have a lovely day and be blessed.
I may well pop back later but for now i'm off to do the WOYWW tour come over and join us HERE

Ah you see Neil the only reason my desk is tidy this week as it is the dining table and I HAD to tidy it up or it would still be covered.. and yes! I confess! I feel positively green to hear you visit Lakes district regularly; there are so many memories of that incredible autumn day - sunny and warm - when I visited Hilltop farm (yes, weather was God blessed! I "trained" it from Manchester then bussed/ boated it {cute little timber boat} and bussed it to the farm, and back again!) The happy memories of her rooms with her paintings and the little original copy of her Peter Rabbit book; and I sat on her seat in front of the house overlooking her garden, and ate my pork pie lunch, pretty spiffing for an Aussie girl to do - you know!
Anyway enough waffling, I love all your stash and you little paper with no peeking has me very curious of course (as it was meant to)
Happy WOYWW!

Love your scrunched up tissue paper of randomness.(Is that a word!) Just had to go swoop in nearer for a closer look and also had a virtual rummage of your craft draw.
Didn't like to say so on my blog as monkey was lisening in but the brown cardi is destined to be a clone of him. A friend in USA wants me to make her one. Off to go do some boiling now. Happy crafting.

You do have a lot of great bits and bobs in your desk Neil, and that technique with the tissue paper looks like fun.

Chrysalis said...

Hi Neil - what a treasure trove your work station is! Love it! Found your blog via your comment on my WOYWW, and had to sign up as a follower once I'd looked through some of your lovely work! Thanks so much for sharing it, and for visiting mine.

fairyrocks said...

Love all your tidy bits and intersting materials
Keep smiling and creating

Barbara Mason said...

Thanks for a look at your goodie stash...love nosing around there! Your desk doesn't seem too messy-it seems just right for creativity!!!

Julia Dunnit said...

I agree, your desk is like mine. Only mine is bigger and therefore a frightful mess rather than an inspiring vignette like yours! Love that Eco paint too - isn't it smooooooth. I was at the Craft Barn yesteday with a couple friends..it's quite a long trip for us so we are by no means regulars!

Minxy said...
