WOYWW 110

Good morning everyone.
I look forward to Wednesday because of WOYWW, don't you? Who would of thought that it would become one of the highlights of the week, but I know I'm not the only one who looks forward to peeking around the globe...... It all kicks off  HERE

So. onto the desk
 Not too messy this week because I have not had too much time. I've been working on the books I show'd you last week....
As well as the books I altered the book at the front which has an amazing texture.
I've also been playing around with a "marbelling" technique with alcohol inks (details here at Andy Skinner's blog) which is fun. I love the subtle colours of these, you get brighter colours on white card too.
Lastly, there are a couple of bits from a bootfair this weekend, don't you just love the necklace!

So there you have my desk; let's have a peek at yours! Be blessed in your journey today.
Ps, don't forget the matchbox swap, I'd love it if you joined in! Details  HERE

These books are fab. Are they gifts for someone or do you use them yourself. I like this marble technique too.
Have a nice Wednesday. Bye Franka

Marbelling, books, necklace and that desk? To much nice! I love love love your workspace!! I have to get up everytime I need something which I guess isn't bad considering the amount of time I sit at this desk....BUT! To have so much within reach makes me jealous - in a good way though. Happy WOYWW

JoZart said...

Great projects Neil. Love the books. I've done the AI technique myself, ages ago, but had forgotten about it so thanks for the prompt. I may revisit as I love making backgrounds.

Bella said...

what a lot you have going on here! Love that necklace, can't wait to see what you make with it! Wish we had car boot sales here in SA.

Elizabeth said...

Another really interesting post this week, Neil. Love that marble look so will be following your link to find out how it's done. As for your car boot finds, I can see that gorgeous necklace getting well used and is that a box or a frame under it - can't quite make it out but it's sure to appear on your post at some point looking quite different. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #99

Ooh that marbling is a great success - love the aged rather than distressed look you've achieved. Your desk is looking great Neil - no-one would ever know how recently you moved in!

JoZart said...

Hi Neil... just wondering if your comment meant you would like me to send you some baker's twine as you would be most welcome to share, as I offered on my blog. If so email me your addy... my email address is on my blog.
