WOYWW?

Apologies for the late posting today WOYWWers. Someone took the day off work today and decided to go fishing. That someone also decided to take my camera with them. MY camera that they supposedly bought ME for Christmas. I shouldn't moan because he will now be paying for his day off by working late into the night. It's just that it's WEDNESDAY! You don't go kidnapping the camera on Wednesday do you? No.

So here is my desk today. It was such a lovely day, I was outside. Try to contain your jealousy at my sad little table which is VERY shabby and not at all chic at the moment. And try not to gasp in awe at my highly cultivated weeds, taken me years to get them this big!It's a bit tidier than it was earlier, I was despairing of the camera ever coming home so had started to bring everything back in.

I've been painting lace today - as you do. The lace was cream, I wanted it black and red and sparkly purple. The weight holding the bits down is just that - a weight to stop them blowing away and smacking an unsuspecting passer-by in the moosh with a wet painty lacey splat. Might leave a nice pattern but don't think they would be to pleased - and I would be miffed at losing the lace.

The yellow thing is a piece of lace card stock (I forget the proper name?) I've used it over and over as a stencil/mask. It's getting some gorgeous colour-way effects on the other side of it now - I may have to actually use it as an embellishment soon and buy a new bit as a fresh stencil/mask. I've certainly had my money's worth out of that sheet.

If you fancy joining us for our weekly rummage through the desks of the world, make sure and head on over to Head Girl Julia's page and linky up so we can all find you.

Thanks as always for stopping by :)

  1. What?? Show my desk? No one needs to see that! lol. I don't have a desk, I have a tv tray that holds my books and the other half of the couch holds my pencils, colored pencils, sketch books, or whatever I'm currently working on. LOL.

    You crack me up too. Love the 'weeds'!

  7. I love the thought of the lace smacing someone splat in the gob!! That lace is looking good - for what - or is it too early to say? And why has only one bottle got tape wrapped around it...?

  11. Love the snoop on your desk Carmen. You would have needed that camera to take pic of unsuspecting passer-by's lace painted face! *Ü*

  12. Just how much mess could you make on a table that size? And you needn't have mentioned the weeds, they're not showing up much ;-)

  13. re: no cost do it for free challenge I'd say use your own judgement but I'm gonna try to use very basic things tools and bits, I suppose if I use embroidery floss it's okay for paints too...regarding SuziBlu, I did goddess & poets, i've done angels, I'm doing piety and passion, and I intend doing the two petit dolls courses, I think she is excellent value for money especially as you get to download and keep the videos - and her art advice is sound, she will enable you to relearn/learn basics as well as teach you some really quite advanced techniques and I am very happy with the results, but THE best bit ( i think) is the student art - some of it makes the hair on my neck stand on end....send me a friend invite if you decide to join....ps If you are UK based I an using faber castel polychromics and my mate bought the other ones Suzi recommends - and I honestly prefer the faber castel....

  15. gawd, how dare he??? I do believe we need a WOYWW committee to draw up a set of wednesday rules that can be printed out and given to husbands.

    I had to giggle at the thought of wet flappy lace blowing about lol

  25. Didn't do WOYWW this week but have poped by a few friends to have a nose. It took me ages to click that any white lace could be changed by paint,ink and glimmer mist (Vicki worked that one out) ...all those hours hunting for the right shade ...doh
    People should remember that most weeds are just flowers in the wrong place.... I have neglected most of my garden over the past couple of years and this year some amazing plants have appeared ...no idea of the names ...Last year we aquired wonderful budlea bushes that attracted so many butterflies ...my thanks to the bird or wind that deposited the seed some time back ...no one should laugh at us cultivators of weeds lol xx
