WOYWW #467

Good Morning creative Friends it's Wednesday which can only mean 
it's WOYWW #467 time to share what's on my work space as Julia hosts 
over at the stamping ground each Wednesday the opportunity to link up 
and sneak a peek of what other creative friends have been up too.

This has been my creative space over the past few days, carrying it all in and out 
of the garden when i've had a moment spare as the weather has been very kind...

There is a new addition to my art materials this week a wonderful surprise gift 
from my Daughter of the 30th Anniversary set of water-soluble pencils from 
Caran d'Ache containing 30 new colours.. Eek!! I'm such a lucky Mom and 
my children really do spoil me!!

The card top left was the Thank you card I made for my Daughter, using Stamps designed by Danielle Donaldson and the card next to it is using the awesome stamp set Designed by Olga Heldwein #81 from AALL & Create.
The face is Audrey another from AALL & Create and is one of many WIP's using this stamp.

Top right is my trusty art trug, my lifeline carrying the foundations of my art materials 
and is never to far away from me. My family know it's as good as a *Do Not Disturb* sign.

That's it from me this week,
i'm so looking forward to catching up with you all
and seeing WOYWW #467

Creative Hugs and Sunny Days
Tracey xx

Lucky you having such thoughtful children. What a super present - must go and investigate those new colours.
Love the artwork on your desk and have to say I adore the face you have drawn - I love 'faces' especially whimsical ones,
Hugs, Neet 7 xx

Wow Tracey, I love how you turned the knitting into wheat on the master board piece. It is so effective. I adore the latest lot of AALL and Create stamps too. The new pencils look amazing, your children are fab! Have a good week. Sarah #9

Julia Dunnit said...

I have a stable door and my desk window is actually the top half (complicated story about a toss up between access to the garden and having a dedicated craft desk!) it’s made me lazy, cos I just sit with the door open and it’s not the same as actually being outside. I really like your cards, aren’t you versatile. The Donaldson one appeals to me particularly.

Take care. God bless.

I love sitting in the garden working on projects as well - it's great that you can spill anything and not worry about it! Love your little basket of goodies - how thoughtful of your daughter to buy you those pencils! How on earth did they come up with 30 new colours, I wonder? That butterfly card is beautiful! Happy WOYWW - the sun is set to return later in the week, so I'll move outside as well! xx zsuzsa #25

How lucky to have all those incredible watercolor pencils and how wonderful that your weather is so good you can sit outside to make lovely art. I can't begin to imagine 30 pencils, all a different color.

Happy WOYWW from #3.

A wonderful workdesk again today and your makes are so beautiful! Fabulous masterpieces each single one. I can imagine how gorgeous those new Carand'Ache watersoluble pencils are ( bu I just have the Neocolor 2 - but I think they use for all their things so much pigment and that is just AMAZING. Your daughter is a sweetheart to spoil you with such artistgrade stuff!
Happy rest of your artistic and creative week my friend!
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your always so nice visits at my blog! It means the world to me!Thank you Tracey ♥♥♥
Hugs, Susi

What a lovely happy post this week, the pencils are fab - how lucky you are - and I love the butterflies and bumble bee stamps - what a striking card they make. You can't beat sitting in the garden and being creative, although it's turned a little cooler and duller here so fingers crossed the sun will be back soon. Thanks so much for stopping by my desk, hope you have a great week,

Lindart said...

It was hard seeing the faces at first on your card - for the life of me it looked like an open mouth and teeth until my brain worked it out! LOL! What a lucky Mom you are to get such a nice gift! Have a wonderful week, Lindart #31

Hi Tracey, it's great being able to get creative and crafty in the garden. It has been lovely weather. Your art trug looks very tidy and organised. I need something similar to carty stuff into tge garden ... I haven't heard of AALL & Create .... something new for me to look into! Thanks for stopping by earlier, hospital visit was my last hopefully but will know in 4 months! Have a lovely week Heather x #12
