WOYWW No 156 Three years on...

Well what an interesting phenomenon - three years from the start of  Julia Dunnit's idea of sharing what's on the desk, we are still going. I'm a relative new-comer about a year ago and have so enjoyed the discussions, ideas, and friendships that have grown. The Wednesday desk jockeys are generous and funny as well. It's all to enjoy!

This weekend just past, I went to a local show called Picture to Page and met a few people I know. Bought a few bits and pieces - envelopes of various shapes and sizes, a couple of die-cuts and best of all, some Dylusion spray inks.

Main feature is the Dylusion Sprays
On the desk are some samples of the Dylusions that I bought, mounted on a page for my techniques journal. The top of the page is covered because it relates to WOYWW 156 ATC swap. On the left are a couple more versions of the StampScapes I started last week. The red sunset sky is done with a brayer and Kaleidacolour ink pad. On the right, is a little clip board and some buttons cut from a new CreaTables die set.

While on the end of the brayer, I made the patchy black & white card from black textured card brayered with white Gesso. Hope to use it for some interesting background.

Looking forward to this celebration of desk-hopping. Ab Fab idea, Julia. Hope your parents are fine, and the holiday is sunny and restful. Warm regards to all, especially my lovely followers and commenters.

Hi Ros,
Thanks for your kind comments! I would love to swap ATCs! Actually I was wondering if those lovely little stampscape cards (few posts below) were ATCs (and if I could be so bold as to ask for one?) I have borrowed some stampscape stamps from Sandra de but haven't got around to doing anything yet. So much to do, so little time (it seems). Those pencils on my desk are sort of interesting. Cheap, but nice. They draw just like lead pencil but when you add water they take on subtle (different) colours. I do have one bottle of that liquid coloured graphite (green) which is rather nice too.
Happy WOYWW and I will email you my postal address. (And do send me yours too, please.)

Hi Ros,

Your tags are just beautiful! I've never used the sprays before -- I'm very limited to my card crafting skills.

Hmm, I don't see my face as a follower - I'm going to sign up.

As a newie to WOYWW I'm watching the great ATC's swap with interest.
But I have so much to learn...dylusions for a start ~ I just wouldn't have a clue what to do but obviously you do.
Your work looks stunning.
Happy WOYWW Anniversary Ros ~ have fun! Neesie #14

Apologies for being so late in getting around to visiting you, the Jubilee celebrations are to blame, but finally here. I could have sworn I'd visited you already - love what's going on on your desk. Elizabeth x #94
