WOYWW #501

Good Morning Fellow Deskers and Crafty Friends,

It's another wintry Wednesday in my part of the world, so it's time show the world What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?! Pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground, where you can link up, have a snout at everyone else's creative spaces and show us all what you've been up to this week.

Here's mine yesterday afternoon ...


We had just got home from a weekend away and I was really craving a little playtime in my craft room - you can see that I've just shovelled to one side all the alcohol inks I was using last week. It's Week One of Wanderlust 2019 and I couldn't wait to get started. This month the theme is "Typography".

My page started with some collaged papers, then I added layers of colour with gesso, water-soluble Derwent Art Sticks, Distress Oxides and Inktense water-soluble pencils. I still want to add some darkness, doodling and definition. I'll show a proper picture of it when it's finished :o)

Thanks for popping in today, see you at Julia's!

Love Annie xxx

Brilliant start Annie, loving the soft but varying colours and stenciling in it all, stencils really are in at the mo! Will look forward to seeing hw it turns out. I’m like that with the push and shove clearance method. Till it bugs me then need to put away!

This is nice Annie. I'm a bit sad because I probably would have had to take some crafting with me if I was away from home Lol! Not saying too much but you were spot on about the tissue paper. Have a great woyww and a happy creative week, Angela x10x

that page looks great! I didn't sign up this year as I failed to keep up watching last year (never mind doing!) so decided I'd keep my money! Helen #2

You've created a super backdrop in your journal play after your weekend away. I Look forward to seeing how it all evolves.

I love the journal background that you have created Annie. I haven't signed up for Wanderlust 2019 as I completed so few lessons last year and also won a spot on Book of Days. Look forward to seeing your finished spread. Happy WOYWW Sarah #3

Love love love your inky page Annie! I'm glad you're doing Wanderlust this year so I can get a glimpse behind the scenes and follow along! I couldn't justify signing up after not even bothering to download the lessons last year - but I'm planning to! What a great project to start the year with!
