About Me

WELCOME to my little arty world! Trying to make art is a huge part of my life ... love nothing more than messing around with inks and sprays and generally making a mess!

Don't be silly of course it isn't Wednesday again!!!!  
All this What's On Your Workdesk malarky sure does make the weeks seem to fly by ... especially when you realise it has been TWO weeks since you last desk-hopped, all courtesy of the beautiful lady, Julia, our leader and enabler over at The Stamping Ground  
SO here it is ... my desk at this particular moment in time ... trying to make three canvas things that will be gifts but time will tell if they are good enough to actually hand over when finished!

I know, I know ... pretty grim, isn't it!?!?!?!?
Having a good old rummage through all my bits and bobs "Finnabair" inspired boxes ... can just about see three new Distress Ink pads and five new sprays lurking behind my heatgun.  The rest is just a mad frenzy I'm afraid.

Short and sweet this week ... too much to do ... not enough hours!
Happy WOYWW'ing fellow crafters!!!

Claritystamp Challenge #30 - Bingo!

A theme from Clarity I had not come across before ... the idea is you take any one line from the Bingo grid and use those products ... 

              Of course it was the middle, horizontal line that SCREAMED to me !!!

Items used were all Clarity (apart from the string!)
Ocean Swirl stencil
Leafy Swirl stamp
Lacy Swallows stamps
Large & Small butterfly stamps
The Simple Things verse stamp
Black card
Grunge paste
Black heavy gesso
Gold embossing powder
Gold gilding wax
more spray inks than I can remember but somewhere along the lines of:
Perfect Pearls Mists : Cappucino, Perfect Copper, Heirloom Gold, Forever Blue
Colour Bloom : Pressed Petal
and something in an unmarked spritzer bottle that I would have mixed myself ... might be Rust Mica powder & gin!

WOYWW # 322

Ok so the idea is we share our workdesks to give fellow crafty bloggers from all around the world the chance to pop in and take a peek and we get to have a good old nosey too. 
Now my workdesk is normally pretty chaotic ... a sort of organised chaos that works for me despite my desires to stop and tidy it every five minutes.  It only takes one minute to return it to chaos so that is four minutes I could be crafting so am learning to Let It Go and just have a good tidy up at the end.
But for the purposes of WOYWW today here it is in all its chaotic glory ... 

Pretty scary right?!?!?!?!?

From all of that came two projects this week  : colours much more vibrant than appear here.

So Happy WOYWW'ing and if you want to see more head over to The Stamping Ground where there will be plenty more creative spaces to visit!
