WOYWW #258

Good morning fellow crafters everywhere and welcome to my workdesk.  I took this photo late yesterday afternoon and it still looks the same.  If you are wondering why I'm showing you my little mess, head over to Julia's blog.  She is the creator of this Wednesday craziness and we all love her for it.  I stumbled onto this several years ago and have been a participant ever since.  Julia has all instructions on her blog for this so come join us and give it a go.  It's all in good fun!



It's pretty much the same view as last week but the elements are all changed.  I've been working on a corset card and here are some of the free images I printed off the internet.  My new sponge daubers from Ranger....I love this size and use them every day!  Front and center is my new Spellbinders tool; it just came yesterday.  I didn't get a chance yet to use it so we will see how that works.  I'm feeling like it would do just as well for a stiff dental brush but we will give it a go and see.  I definitely love the idea of it.  Also a spray bottle of Tea Dye ink and water that I use to age pieces of paper or lace.  The little jar with the blue and orange lid has watered down gesso in it.  I use it when I just want a white wash look on flowers and such.

Well I hope you have enjoyed your time with me this morning.  I love playing along with you guys on Wednesday.  So now I'm off to visit Julia's blog and start my process of visiting as many of the blogs as I can!  See you there!

Will I've been looking at that new Spellbinders tool... Let us know what you think of it!!! and though the round daubers would be better too....
Can't wait to see the Corset Card!!!

Have bought the "sponge daubers" I'm finding they mark the paper more than the old ones. That's probably me of course. Have the new tool on order, look forward to using that.
Happy crafting

Your desk looks great ! And your blog was like a little tutorial on new products. Love the big daubers. Haven't seen any of that around here yet. I've cut my online ordering a bit ! ! ! needed flowers. The SUN is out and keeping my fingers crossed we're headed for a warmup after Friday. Enjoy thanks for stopping by

Hi Glenda,

I have never thought of watering down gesso to use as a white wash - thank you for the idea; now let's see if I remember to try it!

That tool definitely looks dentistry in nature. I bet it's great for picking out the little bits from a die.

Thank you for visiting me already!
Happy WOYWW
Peace, Kay (35)

Always great to hear about new tool of the craft. You must share your thoughts about it.

Love the white caddy, with the drawer, sitting in the back. Looks to be antique (?) LOVE IT!

Thanks for the earlier visit.

What on earth is a corset card?? It brings to mind burlesque and all sarts of risque things, lol!
I read your previous post and I have also discovered pink in my middle age! I hated it with a passion when I was young...was a real tomboy. Pink and Dolls were for GIRLS :-)

Sylvia said...

Lots of fun things to see here, Glenda. hope to see that corset soon! Hope your Wednesday is going nicely!

Your desk looks like a bucket of fun. I don't know what a corset card is but I am sure you will tell all soon.

You have that cool new tool, too. And I have been looking for the Ranger Ink tools and I haven't been able to find them. It's good to know you are enjoying yours.

Helen said...

New tools are good but I've not seen that one before, am wondering what it does... hope you enjoy playing with it soon! Helen 7

Hi Glenda - thanks for sharing your fascinating desk this week - I love the ideas of spray to colour paper/lace and the watered down gesso. Must try those! Have a lovely week, and remember to show us the finished corset card and any other goodies you produce. Chris # 23 xx

Annie said...

I'm playing catch up today. Thanks for calling by yesterday.
I must admit I'm totally in the dark with lots of the paper crafter's stash but it certainly sounds like you will be having lots of fun with your new 'toy'.
Hugs,

Hi Glenda, I'm wondering what that new tool does? I haven't heard of it before. Sure hope I don't "need" it :)
Thanks for stopping by earlier,

I love seeing what you are up to. Give me the low down on that tool...I'm very intrigued! Hugs!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Gosh Glenda, I don't own a single die, and I knew what that tool does, although it appears many people aren't familiar with it. I think Neet did a blog post on it once right after (or during) CHA this year. I like how you compare it to a toothbrush. What a clever idea if I ever do get a die cutting machine.

Thanks for your earlier visit and happy VERY belated WOYWW from #1.
