WOYWW #244

Happy WOYWW Everyone! That is short for “What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday”, the brilliant blog hop initiated by our lovely hostess, Julia at The Stamping Ground….and you can see all the deets there.

Now, as many of you know, I only get into my crafting room on weekends, so once again…there has been no changes to my desk from 2 weeks ago…same wolf stamp waiting for coloring inspiration…
 BUT: I had a play date on Saturday with my friend who lives in Massachusetts. And we got to play with our Gelli Plates.  Mine is the purchased one my Hubby bought me for Christmas, and Julie’s is one she made the old fashioned way.  Very Cool…really; it has to be refrigerated!  So I’m sharing her work desk, as it is infinitely more interesting. If you must; look back two postings, and you’ll see my sad, pathetic one! LOL!)

And Julie has all the cool paints. I only have a few of the TH Distress Paints, which work pretty well, but I tend to be stingy with, and some cheapo Apple Barrel craft paints, which dry really fast and don’t pull well.  So new on my expanding shopping list: Liquitex Basics Acrylics (And how convenient…they are on sale at AC Moore this week: 3/$10!

So there are our prints…and also added to the list…more stencils! Green Pepper Press is calling my name! We are going to try our hand at the Gelli Print Ombre Collage that we saw on YouTube...go check that out!

And, even better, I have used one of the prints for a Valentines Day card for my Honey. (Hmm, maybe I can ask for all the red paints at AC Moore!) 

So..there is mine,  err, Julie's desk…I’ll hop around  to yours.  Have a great week everyone!


  1. Love the samples you have made with your gelli plate, fab colours . Francesca #78

  2. What a great Valentine card! I would go with the "all red" idea. (Here in Canada that would also mean a $50 bill, as they are red--you've given me a good idea what to hint for LOL!)
    One of these days I'd like to try my hand at a gelli plate.

  3. I'm happy seeing Julie's desk, in fact, I hadn't realised it wasn't yours!! I love the teal, turquoise and green backgrounds made with the gelli plate...gorgeous colours.
    I think I'm going to make clip on handbag charms with the pearls together with a few charms from my stash!
    Hugs, LLJ 33 xx
