What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday

Hello everyone!  I'm in between big projects, so you can actually see bits of the workdesk lol. To the right is my Scrapsessories storage unit with the bottle insert. I love this so much! No more stickle burps in the middle of a crucial line (touch wood). The bag of stickles are my duplicates on their way to the storage shoebox where the doubles live.

The bit of blue wool (it's actually wool btw, as I am a spinster with 17 fleeces 3 wheels and I don't put all my roving in one place (moths). And since I decorate spindles, I don't count those either) and the brown rectangle are the cannibalized remains of a contest project that just wasn't up to snuff.... so take 2 is in the works.

The little icon dog stuck to the baby wipes is the negative left from a cut from another project. I use painter's tape to keep the negatives in place and to keep the bits from being lost.

But most of what is on the table is part of my mojo  detection project  or various experiments conducted on wayward scraps.

I practice decoration techniques, test pens and other things on my lists.  Scraps that don't make it into project are likely to be put to use for this. I find if I wait till I have a project, especially with a deadline to do this sort of thing, I don't have that memory muscle thing to help me out lol. I'm testing a new to me glossy finish on the vasey thing, the golden mat is a combination experiment, the black paper scrap is for testing different pens on black. And the pink is something I've been waiting to try to months.  Bragging rights will go to the first person who posts what sort of paint the pink paint is :D.

If you want to see the workspace of lots of other creative people start here!

Lovely busy desk there - looks like you have been having fun! I will take a guess that the pink paint is acrylic (cause thats what I would probably use!).

I always love using up scraps. I have a friend who has a spinning wheel. She starts with wool directly from the sheep and goes from there. She makes amazing pieces, but they are very time consuming. BTW, you have more Stickles in your burpless storage than I own. OK, I own ONE stickles. I'm a bit late so hope you had a great WOYWW (I'm #2).

Spyder said...

Hello there, what a lovely busy desk you have! Okay I'm going to take a wild guess that the paint under scrutiny is Julia Andrus' baby the Eco paint, I know, but I said it was a guess! Thank you for visiting me and your lovely comment. Good luck with all your testing:0) xx

Lots going on, good idea to store the stickles upside down too.

What a great idea for Storage of the Stickles!

I have 0, that's right, Zero stickles! What?! I know, I must get some this weekend! If almost everyone on WOYWW has them, they must be good! I love the way you try out products and techniqes before you have to use them. Although it seems very obvious, most of the time I forget to do it. Thanks for the snoop and your kind comment on my blog ;)

Twiglet said...

You sound to be a busy worker - would love to see what you do with the blue wool.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...
