What's on YOUR workdesk Wednesday #519

Hello Creative Friends

Desk sharing time again over at the Stamping ground 
thanks to Julia it's a regular Wednesday meet up.. 

This desk view is not the one I'd planned to show today 
but I realised yesterday's tidy desk photo displayed upcoming 
DT work so I've had to amend it this morning... silly me!!

This view makes me feel very giddy...

so here's a desk close up.

I found those little paints at the back of a cupboard. 
Not sure what ever happened to Luminarte H2O's..? 

The foam tray they were stored in had fallen apart but a 
spritz of water soon activated these highly pigmented 
pots of shimmer as if they were used only yesterday.

I last used these in 2013 for some Wedding Invites. 
Happy to have been reunited with these little pots. 

A busy couple of weeks for me, lots of running around and 
medical apps so i'll be in and out of blogland when ever I can.

I'll catch up with you all asap
Take good care everyone

P.S still suffering with the migraines... I think it's my age! 😁

Paperbabe Stamps ~ Sketch Challenge #93

Happy Friday Creative Friends,

There's a new challenge theme over at Paperbabe Stamps 
and this fortnight we give you a sketch prompt. 

*Use the Herringbone image to create a background,
the tag maybe your focal, the "Paperbabe stamps" word can 
represent any sentiment and the flower any embellishment...
it really is that simple. 

Play and create, flip it, turn it and be inspired by it. 
You do not have to use Paperbabe Stamps to play along...

Here's what I've created and how it came to be...

Onto an A4 journal page, a background was created playing with the 
chequerboard stencil to add flat and dimensional texture alongside 
left over book pages, paper snippets, washi and loose threads. 

All calmed down with a few brush strokes of white gesso...

Shading with pencil around the aperture within the book page I stamped 
the comfort Zone sentiment onto deli paper and applied to the page.

Creating a Female face using the Paperbabe mini head and torso 
template and mini female face stamps I scribbled in her hair.


Cutting the face out with a Tag die, the colouring begins 
using alcohol markers and a selection of pencils.

Embellishing the tag with left overs, lace and paperbabe 
hand painted media blanks I arranged them to flutter around her.

I love how those wings in the background appear to belong to her.

There's plenty more to see over HERE from the Paperbabe DT 
pop on over and join the Sketch Challenge Fun.

A moment away from the weekend lets hope it's a creative one!

Take Care everyone
Hugs Tracey xx

What's on your workdesk Wednesday #518

Hello everyone,

It's Wednesday and time for another show and tell over at 
Julia's stamping ground the place we share what's on our 
workdesks each Wednesday, it's time for WoywW #518

Today's desk is virtually untouched from last week 
had a stinker of a migraine the past week making it 
near impossible to concentrate on anything in this corner.  

So apologies to anyone I missed visiting in blogland but it's 
difficult to read with the feeling of hot pins through the eyes. 

I've woke this morning feeling a little sniffy & sneezy 
so i'm hoping the lurgy isn't coming to visit.

This crafty area is due a much needed tidy up so I can find 
what I need to crack on with and tick things off my to do list. 

It's lashing down here so with a free day i'll be taking you all 
in there with me for company after i've had a coffee. 

Look forward to seeing WoywW

Hugs Tracey xx
