The First WOYWW of the year!!!

Well Happy New Year everyone, and Happy Woyww!!


If you have No idea what I am going on about you need to pop over Here  and meet the lovely Julia, the hostess, of the biggest virtual craft room raid going!!


So here's mine....






Now what can we see, firstly, It's reasonably tidy, only the stuff that has been in immediate use is on my desk, yippeee that means that it's not the usual disgrace when you pop round to mine, see Brenda?


So on the desk, well Promarkers obviously, 2 images using digi stamps that I made from My Craft Studio Floriography and Setting the Scenes vol 1. The flower Pots and boots are from Setting the Scene, and the Flowers from Floriography, but I need to re-jig it, and remove the edge of the pots, so back to the pc I will go after this,. and do it properly, as they show through the flowers, and Promarkers arent covering it!!
My Dual Speed heat gun, a necessity, for drying the prints so I can colour them quicker instead of waiting for the ink to cure for 24 hrs!
My syringe of Pinflair, the edges of the glass tubs holding wooden embellies, a Chinese Dragon Stamp which I havent put away yet, as I am still using it, I used it on the Chinese new year card in a previous post, an old Onyx box holding some broken bits of costume jewelry, my mixing tile for my aqua markers, and the edge of the tub I keep my promarkers in, a bit of ribbon and a glue stick!!


See clean, well for me that is lol


Happy WOYWW, and I'm off to hop around as many as a I can lol, but it does take me some time, as I have the nasty habit of reading every post!!!!


Hugs and thanks for popping by, 


Lou

I am also determined to get round more people this year, especially when the desks are as interesting as yours. I love that flower pot image, bright and cheerful, and looking forward to Spring. Maggie #73

Victoria said...

A lovely desk- I plan to visit more people too this year x

Elizabeth said...

Hello Lou, interesting desk ... those digital images are fab, though I see what you mean about the lines showing through the Promarker colouring still. I'm another who has the goal to visit more WOYWWers each week, slow work though as, like you, I read every post. All the best, Elizabeth x #60

Elizabeth said...

PS: My desk is all clean and tidy again, just got to put the paints away :))

Linda said...

Hi Lou, nice tidy desk and I do so love reading your narrative on what you have on your desk and of course your other blog post.

Lots of Hugs

karen said...

Great shot of your desk! Lots going on and such a fabulous colouring job you are doing! Good luck adjusting the image, I can't even imagine how to do it, lol!
Thanks for visiting me earlier! And earlier in the week as well! I didn't manage to get back to you as I got sick with the flu :(
Happy 2012!
xoxo Karen

Angie said...

What wonderful colouring ...how I wish I could manage NOT to go over the edges ....mind you I dont notice but DD does ...and tells me lol

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Gorgeous colouring in - the picture is great, Spring is on the way. Yippee!! Tidy desk, there, but can you do it next week as well?? Lol!
Happy New Year!
Hugs, LLJ #34 xx

Twiglet said...

Looks like a crafty year ahead Lou - love all your bargains on the post above this! x Jo

Ann B said...

I try to read every post as well Lou (even if I don't have time to comment on all of them) so it takes me a couple of days to get round everyone. What a coincidence that we both put on boxes of broken jewellery and that we may be able to make a pair of those rope earrings - don't think I would wear them though ha ha.
Lovely colouring on this images, can't wait to get in the garden again but in this weather I would need a boat.

The coloring looks so nice. I see what you mean about the pot but it's not really that obvious. Can't wait for Spring to arrive and this has definitely gotten me in the mood!!

I could be persuaded to roll around in your 5k of crafting ***!!!

(I read the top blog at the top and sank down to your desk)....

you are welcome to visit me anytime, let me know when you are in the UK in the midlands using the contact tab on my blog...if after a visit you still think you would want to live here I'd be amazed

Dxxx

Doone said...

I can't read your comments bummer

TangolikeRaindrop said...

Gosh that looks like so much fun. I'd like to give that a go but, alas, I don't know anyone who does it and I wouldn't have the money/time to commit to buying new stuff. Looks fabulous though! EDS - is that Ehlers-Danlos syndrome? Thank you for your comment earlier. :)

Sam said...

Nice images you have there. How impatient we crafters are - drying your images with your heat gun! Tut Tut!

Sam said...

P.S. My background image was made with blenders - not brayered!!

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

The table of indeterminate purpose is very tidy and all my current crafty requirements are safely and clearly stowed in their new home. I'm hoping it will last and so as not to jinx it, it is not a resolution. Happy New Year.

Tammy said...

Lovely images! I love all the color you are using. Looks like you are having a crafty day! :) Happy 2012! Tammy #76

butlersabroad said...

Lol for calling me out, I suppose I am a bit of a neat freak when it comes down to it! Shame about the edges showing, especially after all the time spent colouring in too. Very nice to see a tidy desy though, you know I shall expect it every week now!!

Hugs

Lisa-Jane said...

I haven't ventured into using digi prints for my Promarkers yet but you've reminded me to look into it. It's addictive isn't it this grown-up colouring?!

Julia Dunnit said...

Clean by my estimate too, and how fresh and lovely those images are, great colouring! It's Friday evening and I'm still visiting, like you, I read em all too, can't bear to miss anything!!

Anne said...

I am still trying to get round everyone - get delayed by reading other posts etc on everyones blog. Super colouring. Happy New Year. Anne x

Katie said...

Wonderful workspace!! Good job on keeping it clean! Hehe...I use a heat gun to dry layers of paint when I'm painting. Thanks for sharing.

If anyone complains about coloring outside the lines just stick your tongue out at them! That's what I say. It looks like you are having fun at your desk. I'm getting a late visit this week. I am currently avoiding my desk. We aren't friends today.

JoZart said...

Sorry I'm late ... busy week but I hope to be here again soon. Have a great creative 2012... looks like you've made a great start.
