Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday!


Well, here it is Wednesday again, and my desk isn't looking much better than last week!  I got some gift cards for my birthday so I went to Joann's and bought a few new things I had been wanting to experiment with!  I didn't have any alcohol inks or glimmer mists.  I saw a tutorial on my bloggy friend Kat's blog about how to make super cheap homemade glimmer mists, so I had to buy the stuff to give that a try...awesomesauce!!!!!!  I made a purple carnation (sitting on the desk) out of the glimmer mist and some coffee filters.  I felt like a kid in an arts and crafts class again!   Haha!

And what's that on my laptop screen???  Stamping Ground?!?!  Haha!  I was waiting for the WOYWW post to go up so I could be one of the first to link.  Well...THAT didn't work.  I went downstairs to watch tv, (it's still Tuesday night here) came back up several hours later, and there's lots of links in front of me now!  One of these days....!

Oooh that carnation looks great - I havent tried making anything like that out of coffee filters - what a neat idea! Thanks for sharing.

The carnation looks great! I am in the right time zone and I think I only managed the top 10 once....... The 30s seem my permanent residing place.

I forgot about those coffee filter flowers, your look great. So many techniques to try! I think I've forgotten more than I've ever retained!

oooh your workspace looks so cool and sophisticated!! I will have to check out those glimmer sprays - I made some of my own about 18 months ago with spray bottles from the chemist, some powders that I bought (didn't realise their potential for years) water and a bit of re-inker for colour. They are still going strong and are not bunged up while all my shop bought brand name ones are clogged up really quickly and are no longer usable unless I decant them - very messy!!! TFS Cindy #26.

I actually made No 1 once, but I had had a dreadful night so I got up at about 5 am and just played with ideas. I usually set my post to publish at just after midnight. My usual residence in somewhere in the 40's or 50's. I like the idea of making those glimmer mists. I have tried mica sprays with mixed results.

Lovely carnation! I haven't tried coffee filter flowers yet. I never get my WOYWW post up early because I have to spend the first half of the morning in bed - so I'm always waaay down the list lol! Sometimes I look in the small hours but dear Julia is asleep in bed at that hour and hasn't got started yet! My weird time clock lol! Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #84

LOL I've been trying to be the first on the list as well, but I am getting better from 137 to 37 this week, a whole 100 earlier. I worked out that I am at work when the linky goes up.
Love your white desk. So what is the recipe for the glimmer mist? We cant seem to get that here in Australia and I so love what the outcome is using it
