WOYWW161

Morning everyone
Wednesday mornings mean only one thing, time to share your desk with the world via Stamping Ground! So here is mine......at about 4am!
 After the weekend, I now have a journal almost full of vibrantly exciting backgrounds so I've made a start on one here.  Music on the go and stamps to play with! You can see some of my waterbrushes filled with the inks too. They are great for colouring in the details.
 The bird is looking rather "bald" at the moment so need to add something there......
 Some new stamps, I've wanted this alphabet for ages now so was really pleased to get it.
I also stamped a couple of these images onto card as I enjoyed making my mini canvas I thought I'd repeat it in my journal as I didn't keep the canvas.
So there you have it. My desk this week. Hopefully now that everything is a bit calmer I'll get to visit more of you.
Hope you all have a blessed and creative journey this week.

That alphabet is scrumptious, must hunt a set down. So you are into zentangle as well.

Love this journalled page. The doodles are superb and you've done a grand job with the sprays and stencils. You've created some gorgeous visual texture. I've saved it to my computer to inspire me on my return. I'll miss reading your blog and will avidly be lapping it up it on my return. Pxx

Shoshi said...

Wow, Neil, wonderful, scrumptious, mouth-watering stuff on your desk this week! I've succumbed and ordered the whole set of Dilusions spray inks - decided I couldn't live without them!! I've never thought of putting ink in my water brushes - think I'll have to get another couple of sets for that!

Sorry to hear you've gone down with a cold, and I hope you're over it soon as it's really miserable.

Thanks for your quick visit to my blog, and for leaving a comment.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #25

Hi Neil,

I hope your cold is gone - funny, I've been sneezing but I think it's allergies (or smoke from the wildfires).

I love that little girl stamp - love it on the text page with the black ink. I'll try that with the Eiffel Tower as I wasn't crazy about the pink......
Thanks for visiting me already!

Hugs,
Kay #27
