WOYWW 181

Good morning and welcome to the world of international desk hopping hosted by Julia HERE.
Time to make public your workplace for the voyeurs of the world.........
Mine is the proverbial tip today as I'm in full creative flow and working on a thousand techniques at once so here goes.
 Well, I tried to warn you. There's pots and potions a plenty, inks paints and pastes galore. Other than that there's not much to see. The handsome chap at the back is from a book of art plates.
 I've been using my Ranger technique tags.....
 Turning ordinary kraft card into something wonderful with Ranger's ink refresher and perfect pearls.....
Lastly, a pile of wonderfully textural fibres from Jo that I haven'y packed away yet.....
So not too much happening. But all of the chaos on my desk is leading somewhere; I just don't want to share where at the moment as I'm not finished yet. But here's a couple of clues.........


Hope you all have a lovely and creative week!

Oh a configurations box for Christmas from what I can see. Lots of creating going on there no doubt. I solved my stencil storage problem btw (its on my desk - contents were yummy) BJ#5

Such a tease, Looking forward to seeing the finished piece. One very busy looking work desk, A frenzy of activity.

JoZart said...

That's going to be a lovely quirky configuration box.. my bet! Where on earth has your tidied desk gone? It's amazing how long it takes to get straight and how quickly we can make a mess. That's a really good mess and I enjoyed my snoop! Some treasures there.

Elizabeth said...

Hi Neil, I do believe you have the busiest desk in craftdom today - at the mention of potions, inks, paints and pastes I thought I'd stumbled into an alchemists :) The sneaky peeks make me want to see more. Thanks for popping by my place - I've found some very practical, if unexciting, useful and utilitarian boxes in B&Q that will do nicely - now I just have to find the time to sort out all that paper. Hope you've had a great WOYWW. Elizabeth #112

Gorgeouso stuff on your desk as usual, Neil - love the tags and all the busy clutter - certainly nothing staged about yours, methinks! Thanks for your lovely comment and encouragement - I agree that a staged desk is better than an empty desk!

RosC said...

Being 'in flow' is a great feeling and one can't care for putting things in their place. Just rush on with it. I like the technique tags and have decided to make a book of technique post cards...one day. Thanks for calling in.

Ros. #20

Neet said...

Not a clue where your desk is leading - it is so busy. How on earth do you find what you are currently doing?
Looking forward to visiting again later.
Hugs and Thanks for visiting me, Neet 47 (one day I will be early instead of playing catch up)

RosA said...

Your desk always has creative stuff on it! It's not a tip, call it "creative chaos" if you will, but your work is always inspiring! Love that heart thingy but can't work out what it is going to be?
Happy WOYWW and thanks for visiting.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Wow! Do you have any room to actually DO anything on that desk? Or have you move onto another surface? I've been know to put up the folding table from time to time. It makes the hubby roll his eyes before he plods off to the man cave. Anyway, you have lots of lovely things out and about so I'm sure you are having a dandy time with it all. Enjoy!

Lucy said...

I love nothing more than to see a desk display like this. Your work looks very interesting. I'm thinking of expanding into textile art next year, so i was rather excited to see your pile of fibres! Happy crafting to you:) x

Bernice said...
