WOYWW and its another woywwer!!

Hello everyone in blogland,its that time of the week again were we take a deep breath and reveal all and i only mean our desks......lol
I am lucky enough to be able to go to a craft meet once a month where i have made many good crafting friends and one of them is the lovely Amanda who makes the most cutest cards and she also posts on the WOYWW blog hosted by the lovely Julia so thought you might like to see this photo taken at sundays meet, i am on the left proudly wearing my woyww badge which i know Amanda is desperate to get hold of  :)

And i can just see Sher's lovely elbow to the left,it was a good day. Right here is my desk for you to peek at
Picked up a new decent paint brush and been having a bash at the watercolouring lark using my distress inks and its hard work! I stamped my image on 3 kinds of card to see what works best. To the left is my distress ink colour chart,images,water pot,brushes,inks, whimsy monkey stamp,acrylic block for use with the inks,towel,and my new dies and magnet card waiting to be put in their storage case.


And this is the best of a bad bunch!! Used langton hotpressed watercolour paper for this one and it worked best,got a long way to go but enjoyed playing around. Off to link up to Julias's before work and watch out for a visit from me,assuming life is a better calmer,x

UPDATE - had a issue with my background not working any more so have changed for a new one for now til i find the right one,sorry if you couldnt see my posts earlier,x

  39. My, don't you have an organized desk. I love the little wired shelf. I think I may have one of those ;)
    I have tried my hand at water colouring with distress inks. I wasn't happy with my results, but then again I need things to work the first time...I don't like to practice, lol.
