WOYWW #428 - in which theTrash Dolls move one step closer

Hello Fellow Deskers and Bloggy Pals,

It's Wednesday (well it will be by the time you read this) so it's time to show the world What's On Your Workdesk this week, by linking up over at Julia's Stamping Ground and then having a wander around lots of other creative spaces all over the world to see what everyone else has been up to.

Here's mine this week - slightly more colourful than last week, when these were just empty packaging boxes and ribbon spools ...


First I covered them in old book paper (from an algebra text book which used to belong to my husband when he was a schoolboy) ...


Then I coloured them with Golden fluid acrylic paints - brilliant for this, as they're translucent and very pigmented - love those juicy colours!!

Next week, I should be able to show you my finished Arty-FArty Trash Dolls!

Meanwhile, I'll be popping over to Julia's to have a nosey at everyone else's workrooms - see you there :o)

Oh, nice boxes! I love the paper you've covered them with and those paints are fantastic, so colourful yet not too opaque. Yum!
