What's On Your Workbench Wednesday (WOYWW) 207 Plus Winner Of Looper

I nearly forgot today is WOYWW and time to share what is on your work desk with other arty souls around the World. If you want to join in or know what WOYWW is go to Julia's blog. I'm still intermittently working on my hand made jewellrey but I have stopped a few times to do some paper crafting as well. This is how my desk was when I went in there at lunchtime today...rather unruly I think LOL.

The bright card at the left is this one and how to make these is below this post

At the back are some cuffs I made. The one at right was finished last night, the one at left was from last week and behind them is one I want to change and use the larger resin filled bezel on it, that is beside it.

Behind the cuffs at the right are an old painting I have done and a mixed media background awaiting decorating. I have the painting on my desk as I walked past it a few days ago and realized the edges have faded due to people picking it up off the shelf in my hallway. There are also some discoloured spots on her face. When I have my metal mania out of the way I'll pull out the paints and fix her plus finish the mixed media card

This cuff is one I was working on last night. It was one of the cuffs that needed repairing from last week. I've taken it off it's old etched cuff and will cold connect it to the new etched cuff. I'm about to drill holes in the old watch part (which is now filled with resin, bird image and tiny eggs) and then I'll attach it onto the new cuff. The wings and cogs are ready to go on as well to the left of it.

This is the sort of arty alchemy I create as I work ROFL.

Now onto who the winner of my spare 1 step was number 25 which is Ike. ...well unless she doesn't want it and then I shall generate another person to gift it too :o)

Off to snoop on others desks. Before I go my heart and best wishes go out to those affected by the tornado in Oklahoma....just so devastating to hear about the loss of lives...esp children...and see the damage. Also my hands only have a few scabs left yeha...they did prove impossible not to pick at!!

Love that card, such innocence to it. Where do you get your bezels and resin from? I am having a hard time getting my hands on them

Hi Annette
what a lot of lovely stuff on your desk for us to look at today. You know I love your cuffs they are so amazing, wonderful detail on them.
Your painting is beautiful I think you need to put a sign up saying please do not touch to stop her being damaged.
Sending hugs on this WOYWW have a great day

Love the panting, and of course the cuffs. The mess is pretty good too, although we may rival it this week as we're stash sorting.

Hi Annette! I just joined WOYWW today. I think your workspace is beautiful and so is your jewelry! Your painting is gorgeous. Oh my gosh you are so talented. I will be following your blog. Have a wonderful day.

Kim's Creations said...

Love all the different things you are working on, I especially love your mixed media canvas!

April Story said...

Wow. You have some heavy duty tools. Beautiful jewelry. And that painting is lovely. #131

Bobby said...

I must commend you on keeping all your crafts in one space. My paper crafting is in my craft room but I have a painting in the dining room, quilt in the spare bedroom and a cabinet I'm painting in the dining room, too.

Hi Annette,
Thanks for your lovely comment. Don't know how you deal with the humidity up there in NT. I think I'd fail to thrive, much happier in winter on the whole.

Your work desk is wonderful and your skills are so varied. When you touch that lovely lady, put a "Hands off" sign nearby.

I remember taking about three months to get from here to Darwin back in 1997 - nearly six months in a tent altogether. It was a truly remarkable trip. When we got to Darwin, couldn't wait to get to the sea but just for a look. No swimming with the crocs and the stingers!

Take care,
Ros. #28
