WOYWW #463

Well i'm back again for the WOYWW #463

Thank you all for visiting last week what a lovely warm welcome. 

Who would have thought anyone would be interested in my messy workspace
but I have to say I certainly enjoyed my travels around everyone elses.

Here's what sits in my creative space this week..

There's more unfinished backgrounds created using the acrylic inks from last week.

The journal page hasn't progressed very far but the book on top is a diary I purchased for 20p, a bargain as it has a magnetic clasp. Always handy to have an extra diary or two i'm always losing mine under things. A dab of paint makes it blend in with my work space.
 Hmmm maybe that's not such a great idea??

Found some more Deli paper hidden in a fabric box and those Tic Tacs are still hanging around from last week but i'm not sure where those old pound coins disappeared to.. 
Hope I didn't pay the window cleaner with them!!

Happy Crafting everyone and I look forward to visiting 
WOYWW very soon.

  1. Happy crafting dear Tracey - I always have a smile on my face reading your crafter's thoughts and it is for me like gazing into a mirror. We artists are all a bit dreamt away and so we forget many projects but the miracle to find the projects later again is our treasure!
    Love your bargain - you made a little unique pretty diary/notebook out of it. I have many notebooks...too many.... same as with the fogotten projects, there are always forgotten diaries or notebooks here!

  2. Your working space looks great. Mine is just a total mess, and I would not show it just now. The diary you got was a real bargain, well done. Have a fun and creative week! Hugs, Valerie

  3. Happy WOYWW. I can never turn down a cheap notebook - and one with a magnetic clasp! I have several on an Ikea trolley - with plans to use them all one day. I bought some Deli paper last year and never used it - think it was for a particular project, which I might remember eventually. Ali x #12

  4. Welcome back Tracey, glad we managed to encourage you to return. Love the diary; the magnetic clasp is swish. Love your desk, it looks very busy and used! Happy WOYWW Sarah #17

  5. Morning Tracey. I missed you last week as I was roaming Britain visiting my family - but how lovely to meet you today. Love you current space I've just looked back a week and see you wander round the house with your creativity!) A great cover for that diary - yes, you may find it difficult to see sometimes - but I really like it!! Love all those sketchbooks - and the 365 book you have begun. It looks good sitting there on top of the pile!
    Take care. God bless.

  6. Hi Tracey, love what I can see on your desk, those backgrounds are amazing. Great find with that diary, and love what you did to it. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #8 XxX

  7. A disappearing diary would just about be the straw that broke the camels back. Or.. a blessing! My memory is such rubbish that a diary is essential, but wouldn’t it be lovely to not need one hit a while! It’s a great cover, I like the magnetic fold closure idea very much. Nice backgrounds from the acrylics, I believe you have ATCs in the making!

  8. 20p? Bargain! At that price it doesn't matter if you fancy having a play with the cover. Wish I was a diary keeper, we have a mundane family calendar but it's not very exciting - necessary though as I tend to double book myself quite often :-D. Love the bright acrylics you're using, so gorgeous!

  19. Hi Tracey, you’ve a very restrained and tidy workspace, compared to the current chaos in my room, I don’t show that!! Only teeny part of large desk, love a bargain and smiled at the camouflage not being good idea! So like me to lose things too!
    Thanks so much for your great desky share.

  20. Hi Tracey. I'm late getting round. Will try to be on better time this week. Bob came home and my week went by the way. hehe As it should be, I say. Lovely new journal. Love the color you applied. So happy you dropped by my blog and that joined us! Creative Blessings! Kelly #27

  21. Loving your desk. And what a bargain your diary was.

    Thanks for visiting me, you made me laugh with your being late to pick your own kiddies up because someone else was late getting theirs. Makes me feel not so bad :D

    Sorry Im late, completely snowed under and freaking out at end of uni first year looming. Am so behind.
