WOYWW and a challenge tag..

Morning Stampers It's that time of the week that we all enjoy
, Having a snoop in other peoples spaces to see whats happening... If you've no idea what i'm on about.. firstly where the hell have you been, and secondly go check out our fearless leader Julia's blog for all the info. I missed last week as i was working but my desk did look like this...

And today.. well it looks just like this...
I tryed to label a few things just for the hell of it
And the tag on my desk..
Well that's one i made yesterday afternoon for the Lots To Do challenge which has an 'Architecture' theme..
The base colour was my new paris trunk eco-friendly ink which i may say is heavenly
I used a couple of stamps from the architecture plate 1 and the art word stamp from the artist's No.1 plate, The I S was created by using a couple of letters from a page out of timmys lost & found paper pad, and mounting then on black funky foam. I finished off by just highlighting with an inkssential white pen.
most of the stash I used came from The Artistic Stamper.. including the tags.
*****
I'm not quite sure if i'll be making an appearence next week as it will be all change here.. I'm having a room makeover..fresh lick of paint, new carpet hopefully, a total shuffle round, new expedit bookcase...
 so the next time you see my desk it wont look anything like the pics above!!
Stayed tuned!
I'm gonna try my best to make it round to everyones spaces this week.. I just haven't had time the past 2 weeks and i'm sorry for that.. With the ever growing numbers i find it hard to keep up, so please dont feel offended if i dont make it to you.. i just ran out of time is all...
Right thats plenty of waffle for one day..
Go have fun in the sun.. or if its raining.. Go make some art!

Minxy,

I have seen those ink pad stamps and holders/spinners but had no idea what they were. I thought they were stamps that stamped words until I clicked on the photo and took a good look. Never heard of the Paris Trunk ink. You have so many goodies I've never even heard of. I sure love that tag, though. Happy WOYWW and thanks for opening my eyes to some great products.

Kay said...

Paris Trunk Ink? Have fun with the room revamp. I know what you mean about having trouble getting round all the desks! I think Wednesday should be declared a national holiday each week so we can visit everyone

Sunshine Girl said...

Love everything on your desk and have not heard of paris trunk ink either - do i need it?

Bettythebaglady said...

Good luck with the revamp. Hugs BettyXXX-would love to teach you to knit any time :)

Deborah said...

Quite jealous of your spinners :-) And a great idea to caption what's on your desk. Love that architecture tag too. Not got any Paris Trunk ink (yet) but yesterday treated myself to five of Julia Andrus' eco paints and they are divine - so creamy.
