What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday

Well, i’m ready to share my workdesk with you again, folks! My workdesk (i.e. our dinner table) currently extends to “everywhere” (the floor, chairs, other tables, cupboards, …).

Tonight I’d like to finish two projects. The first one is a mosaic tabletop that I made a couple of years ago. I actually sold it last weekend, when I was attending an arts and crafts market as a vendor (instead of visiting). I didn’t have a lot of stuff for sale: one round tabletop, one square table and twenty handstamped cards. The market was held in the open air, the weather was awful (rain and wind) and there were barely any visitors. I think only 5 people bothered to flip through my handmade cards, but 2 of them bought 2 cards, which really pleased me. I also received a lot of compliments regarding the tables and in the end one of them got sold to a blacksmith. It’ll be the first time that one of my “creations” will actually leave the circle of my family and friends… Anyway, I just need to add another protective layer before delivering the tabletop to the blacksmith.

Now, the second part of my workdesk is covered with the usual: inks, stamps, papers, … And I’m currently working on my second tag ever for DragonsDream Tag it On.  As you can see, I used a Penscore foam block and Tim Holtz sprocket gears to create my steampunk background.

  10. Love how those sprockets thingie wotsits turned out for you. Perfect. Did you know that the reverse side of cut and dry foam is the same as the blue penscore block?? …and everyone has cut and dry foam… so you can do the same thing- heat till it looks soft and mushy, then press your ‘bits’ into it..well heat safe bits that is!!
