What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 87

I did specifically place the roses in the shot (photographer speak!!) so that, after last week, you can see the results so far from the Crafty Notions mould, me, and Fimo. And it's a boost too, because I know what I'm going to use them for now, so baby steps and three weeks, maybe a result! Colour me red and surprised, the rest looks a bit valentine-y, but that actually, wasn't the intention at all. It must be subliminal! The terracotta dish on the glass mat is only about an inch deep and had some water in it whilst I fiddled about with stamping onto wet watercolour paper. That was yesterday and the water's dried up.....so has the idea. The BG pad is a small one that I've had for a while and decided that it won't scare me if I look at it for a long time. I shall in theory, get sick of it and use it! Check back with me about this theory. And here's a close up of the roses so far.........because I thought a two photo desk would be a delight this dull dark Wednesday early morning!
Join us do - show us a picture of your works surface; clean, tidy, messy, filthy. However. Upload to your blog, tell us briefly what you're doing and link here so that we can all come round for a jolly good rummage. I thank you.

The roses are what you were baking last week? I like them and yep, they look Valentiney to me! I am trying to get over the 'save new papers' thing and make something within a week or two... because there will always be more new papers!! ;)

Helen said...

Yes they do look lovely and valentine-y but also sugary and tastie..but try that. I'm thinking sparkles on them now, but maybe not, in real life, only in my head. Happy Groundhog Day...may you'll get to do this all over again tomorrow..!

I've added my desk photo and some craft room news to my blog today

Elizabeth said...

Love the roses and that heart on the card is fab. I think you're right about this Valentine thing - not really my thing but so far I've made a couple of 'soppy' cards fit for the occasion. Sorry I'm late this week but I'll try to do better next week :)Elizabeth x #96

I love those roses. They are so Valentiney but also Summery at the same time. We need to think about Summer to get us out of this rain. :-)

Ciara said...

I've always thought of Fimo as being a great big faff, but those roses are jolly nice.

Right then missus, my atg & tape runners. OK, I admit it, I'm possibly still in the transitional period and not quite there with the big pink beast! I use the ATG for larger pieces but can never be that accurate with it so use the runners for smaller bits. I promise I will try harder, honest!!

Li'l Pidge said...

ooh, nice roses. I have fimo but never know what to do with it, using moulds are a great idea.thanks

I havent done this challenge in a while because of a family loss, but I decided to dive back in today. I'm loving all the entries as usual!

Deena said...

very cool roses...and such a nice clean desk

RosA said...

Nice roses! I like playing with polymer clay too. Did a workshop with Laurie Mika last year. Have you seen her work?

Kim said...

I hope I'm not too late...with the storm our dial-up was worse than usual..none of the links showed up! I love your roses, and I'll have to try your paper pad theory, as getting sick of it will be the only way I can break the hording hold!

Shari said...

As I was reading your post, my brain was going to fast to register what I was reading and at first I thought you had made the roses from terracotta and I kept wondering, "How did she do that?". Silly me, after re-reading more slowly I realized they were made using a mold and Fimo. They did turn out very lovely! TFS, ~Shari #103

Di said...

Looks like Valentine's Day is coming soon?! Gorgeous roses! Di x

I am completely addicted to your wednesday bloghop. even when i dont participate I am always visiting everyone else's desk.
