Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

WOYWW What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 115

Okay so here we are, another week charging ahead while I am struggling to catch up - whoa boy!! Wait for me!
And lookee see! what do I have here? a gorgeous creation – no not mine!! One all the way from the UK again (aren’t I so very richly blessed?)! Yes, ‘tis from the desk of none other the splendorous artist Neil of WOYWW (do check out his blog, it is a picture of creativity). Thanks so very much Neil for all your delicious goodies!!
Neil saw the lovely Lisa’s Craft Stamper which she so kindly posted me a few weeks ago and bethought himself of the one which had arrived at his abode in April, a duplicate – he was told not to send it back, so you can now spy it on my desk below with some of Neil’s lovely laser craft cuts (below right) – oh, these are gorgeous and cant wait to play with them too – Neil’s talent is unlimited as shown in the included card. I love the background stamp on this card– sort of tiger skin pattern in a blur, and the frosted shrink plastic tick tock clocks, and the rest of the lovely stamp work on the topper.

I also have some new goodies from Fat Cats Card Corner – namely the Magical Micas Sweet Treats, and a Nellie Snellen Corner die – also you can also see I am having a play with some methods of using them here. On left is the scrunch up a tissue method and dampen down with water spritzer apply the medium, re-spray and put up to dry (unfortunately the picture does not do the shimmery sheen of the micas justice). If you want to see these methods check this post out here on clever Kate's great blog. I know the crumpled tissue looks very weird at present but think it will card up ok! I also did some smooshing on gloss cardstock with the silvered lilac pieces you see there but they were with alcohol inks.  I thought I might use it with the Chocolate Baroque butterfly stamp which came with Neil’s Craft Stamper.


For those of you not in the know – this is the day of the week when folks from all over the world take a peek at one another’s desk to see just what we are up to – a great time of learning and fun, so do hop over to our wonderful hostess’ blog, at Julia's Stamping Ground!
Happy WOYWW everyone and may God bless you wherever you are..

PS. Hi there every one - the tree and red castle lower left corner are two of the laser cuts which Neil so very kindly sent me - did this post in haste sorry for confusion!

What a great post. thanks for stopping by also. Neil..what a sweetheart. I love all his creations. Your desk has so much inspiration!! Love all the little goodies. I watched a video on the painting of tissue paper. Maybe your post will get me back in the mood for creating with paper. I really had a bad attitude develop, not like me so maybe this WOYWW will inspire me.. Have a great week.

Hi Shaz, That's a lovely card from Neil! And I love that UK Craft Stamper magazine, don't you?
I like that skeleton tree thingy on the right hand side of your desk. Is it a stencil? or a stamp? Can't quite work it out. I will put your lovely card etc on my blog next week.

Ohhh Snap said...

Lovely goodies on your workdesk this Wednesday :D. TFS! #89

Hi Shaz, your comment did make me smile, :). The truth is, I completely lost track of what day of the week it was- I was convinced it was Tuesday! I smiled at the Aspire card too- I have to agree, it makes a superb topper, doesn't it? I think that stamp was definitely one of my best ever purchases, I'm just happy you love the stamp, and the triptych idea as much as I do. I shall definitely be here on time next week, have a great week, Shaz

I cleared my desk early tonight - hoovered the floor so I can start with a clean and tidy slate in the morning. What joy lies on your desk...fun, fun, fun....hey this Neil guy would be worth getting to know so I'm off to check his blog out just now....his card is wonderful.
Blessings on you my pen pushing friend!

Morti said...

Fab bits on your desk - lucky you! Those micas look great.....

Sam said...

What alot of gooodies on your desk this week!
Jane did like her card, especially when I pointed out that the diary page background is from one of the old diaries which I "rescued" from our Archives and was the correct date!!
Still no internet so I have resorted to staying in lunchtime so I can play catch up with you lovely ladies. I cannot believe I have not been able to go on blogs since Monday - besides not being able to shop!! Arrrrgh!!

Shoshi said...

Happy WOYWW Shaz. I LOVE the textured tissue paper you've done. That's really beautiful! Very interesting table this week!! Lots of interest.
God bless you.
