What's on your Workdesk? Wednesday 149


My desk is fuller than normal today.  I want to make a stash of flowers using the Creative Expressions Button Florals and Craftwork Cards Build a Bloom.  Both these sets include flowers that are easy to cut out. I want to make some from patterned paper and some from images which I colour myself.  As you can see, my Promarkers are out at the moment but I may use sprays and inks too.  I started yesterday afternoon but didn't get very far! If you are wondering why I am showing my desk in all its messy glory, pop along to Julia's Fab blog to find out.  Have a fab desk hopping day, I will be late visiting  today as I am going out for a friends birthday.  If the weather is ok, it will be a boat trip and a cream tea! xx

Hi Chris, sorry I am late but my neck is still bothering me so can only be on here a short time at once.

Shame you are so far away it would have been lovely to meet up.

Good luck with the flowers, look forward to seeing them when you have finished, the papers look lovely.

Hugs, Neet #10 xx

Lovely desk, Chris. Those flowers are going to look great. I prefer to make my own flowers now ... it's easier to coordinate them with your project. Look forward to seeing how you use them. BTW, love the tag in the previous post. Elizabeth x #26

Jackie said...

Of course I don't mind - spray away! I look forward to seeing the results.
