What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday - WOYWW #550

' Twas a week before Christmas..........

and for once I am not tearing my hair out!! Apologies for being MIA but the last two weeks I didn't realise it was Wednesday until Thursday. But calm prevails this week - well, I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop but so far so good.

Here is my desk this week.

Been dabbling with alcohol ink 'painting' on tiles - I use the term loosely. Originally a class project,  I decided to stamp and emboss using some fairly simple Christmas images to give everyone lines to work too rather than attempt freehand. Went down a treat and I am just in the process of finishing a couple of my samples off. Haven't sealed any of them yet as every day I have the time ot's been too windy to attempt but I think if  they aren't handled too much they will be fine.

Why am I telling you this? Well Wednesday is the day we do our tour of work desks to see what everyone is up to. and exchange a few words, feel smug (never), or glad we aren't the only one. Pop on over to the Stamping Ground and find out more.

Right, must get on, don't want to get behind when I am doing so well up to now. I have one final class to prep for Friday and a couple of things to get in the post. then it's time for wrapping and house tidying in preparation for the big day. We are 10 for lunch, how about you?

Finally just to say Merry Christmas and all that jazz to all who stop by as I doubt I shall be about next week. Have a good one, love n hugs Cindy xx

Your tiles look superb Cindy a lovely smooth surface to work on they would look wonderful open framed as well. Have fun creating and playing with those inks. Happy WoywW, Merry Christmas & a very happy New Year. Hugs Tracey #5

That's a clever idea giving them the embossed image to work with, people find that easier than trying to do something from scratch! Hope you have a marvellous Christmas with your folks Cindy and I'd like to wish you a happy and healthy 2020!
