WOYWW #157

Hi folks
Another blink of the eye and another Wednesday is here so time to see what everyone's up to via the link at Julia's place; Stamping Ground
Here is my desk this week
 As you can see; not a lot going on other than the visible chaos of some time spent crafting but no completed project!
Just some experiments with crackle paint to see, along with this mannequin tag in progress......Jury is still out on that one at the moment though! Still, today is another day ......
Can't show you my ATC for last weeks swap as the recipient is in the States so won't have received it yet.
Have a great week everyone.

woah! you really are making me dizzy this week with your aerial shot of your desk! Never got into Brighton centre as we visited Nymans and Sheffield Park (poured with rain whilst Brighton was sunny) but enjoyed the trip except the rotten weather.... it was sunny up North too! Off to Germany tomorrow!

Actually, I think that 'time spent crafting but with no finished project' is possibly the best time! I know I had a lovely evening yesterday just messing about with stuff.

I managed to miss posting last week - would love to send you an ATC or even swap if you're up for it. Please let me know either via my blog or at hsalthouse@yahoo.com. Thanks!

Hi Neil love the vibrant colours of your crackle experiments. I have crackled two walls in my craft room one wall is light pink with dark pink cracks and the other is pale blue with dark pink cracks! Watching the cracks appear is strangely compelling! :-)

Bella said...

love the colours you are using for the crackle paint... I see you are also reduced to a small patch of mat as you work...looks like I could have just walked away from that desk...

Queen Of Toys said...

Love your crackling and the colours you have used. I am not that good at it, don't know why. LOL also that tag is looking good.

Happy crafting.

The crackle paints are very cool! I like the mannequin tag and look forward to seeing what else comes from it. The tall view of your desk today gave me a bit of a nosebleed though. Too high for me!

May said...

Great creativity on your desk, as usual! I wish I could get the hang of crackle paint. It should be simple, shouldn't it? More practise required, I guess!
Happy WOYWW!

Always fun to just play around and see what effects you can come up with.

Julia Dunnit said...

Great overhead shot Neil..like the Seed boxes! So glad you had time to join the swap last week, lucky recipient. I don't use crackle...can you understand when I say it's too random and I don't like not knowing the result?! Quick, run!!

VonnyK said...

The crackle looks like fun. Love the mannequin, lace makes it great.
Have a wonderful week.

Those paint effects look fabulous, I can just imagine them being turned into ATC's. Now look what Julia has done - she created some ATC monsters!
