WOYWW #158

Morning everyone. Hope you are all well and having a time to be creative wherever you are on this beautiful world of ours....
So here is my world this week (And because so many of you don't seem to believe me when I say I am doing nothing dangerous to get my aerial views I haven't done one this week, just sat at my desk!
 So, what's there to see? In the back here are some of the technique tags from Ranger Uni. They are really great to refer back to. In front of that is a class sample I'm working on....
 In the middle are two tag samples I'm busy with for The Craft Barn Extravaganza, Embossing and Dyan inks and stamping so far.
 Just to the left is this torso, need to get going with it before I lose my ideas!
 Then; just for fun; some pics of my garden which is looking good!
 This Rose smells absolutely gorgeous!
Well, I hope you all have a blessed and creative week; perhaps I'll see you at Julia's?

Lovely as usual. I noted your name in the list of demos in the Craft Barn ad - sounds like a fab day. I am intrigued by the 1/2 spools - never mind areal views, are you risking your crafty fingers with a band saw or do they come that way? Inquiring minds want to know....

What a pretty cottage garden. This is my favourite type of garden.I love things that just arrive, or pop up in unexpected places.Glad you're getting some sunshine to brighten that garden.
Of course I love that desk, and the tags!

Love all the tings you are working on at the moment and that birdcage die has to be the most versatile thing Tim had invented yet!

Rita said...

Always love your desk Neil. But wow, what a fantastic garden, those foxloves are beautiful, and of course the Peony rose. Enjoy your Week. Hugs Rita 29. xx

Very unusual to see your desk from this angle - so much more to see! Love your tags and like he way you have put the birdcages around the dress form - great idea. Happy Woyww, Anne #30

Helen said...

Your desk always looks great, whether you sit or stand!! The tags look fabulous, can't wait to see them - I am definitely making it this year!! Helen, 3

Julia Dunnit said...

Must be lovely to sit in the shed and admire the garden - two things that really showcase your creativity huh! You must be as tall as a tree, your s'sit at desk' shot is similar to what I achieve standing, at arm's length!! Am intrigued that you have more than one thing on the go..that would scare me for fear of losing the ideas...mind, they don't flow anyway!!

Spyder said...

Hmmmm I can almost spell that rose! I must addmit working in my shed in the summer was lovely, with the spells of the garden, it was just the slugs and snails in the winter that put me off! Great pictures of your craftyness, love your Tags, have a great crafty week! Happy WOYWW!

great looking desk this week. I thought I was the only one that lost track of where they want to go with projects. Planted a couple foxglove plants this year to see if we can get them to grow with 40c temps. Hope you have a great week and thanks for sharing. Vickie #42

Helen said...

Hi Neil Love all the projects you have going on. The tag sample with the stickles on looks interesting. Did you stickle over a stamp I wonder? Your garden looks lush - the rain is good for something anyway! WOYWW Hugs from Helen 14

Ann B said...

Beautiful tags and your garden is looking blooming lovely.
Foxgloves are one of my favourite flowers but I pulled all mine up last spring when we first got our dog to stop her eating them. Surprised this year to see two popping up and now she is over the 'eat anything' stage they will stay.

Happy WOYWW Neil! I couldn't access your blog last week for some odd reason so I'm glad I was able to stop by for a peek today. I've been known to take some perilous aerial views myself. I really enjoy your art, thanks so much for the peek! ~Robin

Emily said...

I love the tags on your desk.. I keep meaning to trying out a more 'steampunk type' style but end up so busy with class prep it leaves so little playtime lol

Hi Neil! This is my first time on your blog courtesy of WOYWW. I'm amazed to see that you are one of these alcohol ink, steampunky, grungy crafters. I love seeing the effect and the beautiful projects people produced with this style, but whenever I try it it just looks like a huge mess to me. I envy you! How do you get it all to work so well?!

Thanks for sharing!

Not sure you should have a naked woman in your room, let alone photograph her! Hee Hee

Queen Of Toys said...

I so love your space and your tags are just perfect. Your garden amazing, you have a green thumb, be careful though is it a bit a black spot on the roses? Oh and that rose is amazing, I only wish I could smell it.

Have a great crafting week

I love looking through artists' studios. It is fun and inspirational. I've had a traveling one for the past week, so it'll be a treat to work in my real studio this week. Your Steampunk tags are looking marvelous, as well as your garden. Blessings!
