WOYWW #214

Happy WOYWW - time is flying so fast mid-July already [well it feels that way]... if you would like to know more about Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday - the biggest and bestest blog hop in the world - pop on over a visit Julia Dunnit at Stamping Ground our wonderful hostess each week....

My workspace... the overview shot... on the left are some dragonflies stamped using stazon onto vellum and a distressed card base... at the back beside my mini drawers is blank Color Me sheets cut up and mosaic squares left over from a project...
 
I have been showing a friend how to ink emboss and I then carried on and coloured some background on my other Color Me sheets to use over the coming week...
 
Next is my snippets file of patterned papers - this is where my offcuts go so they are easy to grab before I reach for a fresh sheet and the blossoms I have had for quite a while but I haven't stashed them where they belong...
 
 
In my Blossom Box.... some of these were actually silk flowers bought at $2 shops and deconstructed others are white paper flowers all ready for colouring up with H20's...
 
 
I will show you all my Brad Box / Button Box / Bits Box etc over the coming weeks... LOL
 
Have a great week everyone - now off I go round the world - hope I get to see lots of you this time round.... Thanks for stopping by... Hugs Mxx

  3. Very tidy and organized. I am loving you mosaic blog background too - lovely, as are the dragonflies. I prefer them to butterflies, to be honest :)

    Happy WOYWW!

  5. I had a lovely time de-constructing silk flowers a while back - very therapeutic! Those ink embossed backgrounds look great, love those ice-cream colours. Thanks for your visit today, have a great week MMx #59

  8. You are so right, this month is flying by . . . gorgeous box of blooms, so pretty!

    (That suede on the book cover, it is SO soft, makes for a very tactile beginning to such a tiny little book!)

    Thank you for visiting me this WOYWW, I appreciate your comment!

  10. Great space and I love your flower box, I have divided boxes for all the small things I think I need, like 14 divided boxes....LOL Your flower box reminds me that mine is getting very thin and I need to take some time and get some made up. Oh well, maybe tomorrow LOL

  11. That was such fun seeing part of your very well-organized craft space, Maureen! Well done! I love that you have lots of things to-hand for easy application and your flower collection is awe-inspiring! Happy Belated WOYWW and I wish you a wonderful week!

  12. Great collection of flowers! I'm keen on deconstructing them too and then spraying with glimmermist, etc. Thanks for stopping by,

  13. I love your flower box. It looks like a decorated printers tray, rather than simple storage. Rather beautiful.

    Thank you for visiting and happy belated WOYWW.

  14. Hi Maude,
    Firstly, I’m so sorry that I never made it to your blog last week, especially as you had made the effort to visit me for the first time. I’ve made you the first I visit this week, so I hope you forgive me.

    Your desk looks amazingly colourful and very busy indeed. I’m green eyed over your box of blooms.

    Happy Crafting!
