WOYWW #421

Welcome to the “What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday” blog hop hosted by the lovely Julia at The Stamping Ground, where we open our craft rooms up to have you peak at our desks—our work habits, whether good, the bad and the ugly, and to meet kindred souls. 

Upstate New York has actually had some terrific weather the past few days—cool temperatures and no humidity. And just enough sporadic rain showers to not make me feel guilty of time spent in the craft room! (What do they say…Time is precious; waste it wisely!)   So I’ve spent my precious time playing with the Dina Wakely Media Paints and her online class “Ordered Chaos” as well as catching up on the Wanderlust lessons.  This week was to use Paperclay to create a tile or wall hanging kind of piece. 

So here is my desk as of last night….many different things going on.  First there is the Paperclay tile, hopefully drying nicely. The green prints were some Gelli plate cast-offs.  The flowers and gears above are what will be placed on it, and have been imprinted to sit nicely.  The word, scissors and chain were pieces that I experimented with the new Finnabair Patina Effects Paste I scored on the trip to Michael’s to get the clay.  (I also picked up the Jane Davenport Watercolor Brush markers!) Good chance those gears will get treated tonight!.  The Dina Wakely paints that haven’t’ put away were used on a canvas board that is under the craft mat-it was dry, and I needed the solidness to roll out the clay.  And then there is everything else that just seems to hang out on the journaling desk; I really need to take some of the precious time and find a way to not just get organized, but find a way to keep it that way! 

And here are all the ATC’s from our Anniversary Swap: I received lovely ATC’s from Kelly Henkins, Carol Norby, GlitterandGlue, Shaz Silverwolf, our own Julia, and Darlene Wright. 

So that’s me; now go back to the Stamping Ground to portal off to other creative desks.  Stay Crafty my friends.

  6. Hi Kim. Cool ATCs! I am very curious about that paper clay project. Which brand of paper clay do you use? I think there may be two that I know of so far, but maybe Dena Wakely has her own now? Happy WOYWW
