Hello there! First of all, a big thank you to everyone who visited my workdesk and left a comment last week and the weeks before! There are even ladies out there who visit ALL workdesks and leave a comment at each and every one of them… Respect! I feel rather guilty about not being able to do so… I try visiting about half of the participants and if I manage to leave 25 comments, I consider my “What’s on your workdesk? Wednesday” a very productive one (If you’re thinking “What the heck???” click here).
Last week, I received lots of comments about the bleach that was standing on my desk. Ok, I must admit, from a safety point of view, keeping your bleach in a salad jar might not be the best of ideas, but I can assure you my boyfriend won’t put it back into our kitchen cupboard. Many of you seemed to genuinely ask themselves what the bleach is used for. Do you really never use bleach in your work??? I use it quite regularly to remove the colour of black paper before inking it with bright colours or before painting it with Perfect Pearls or to remove colour from an inked background.
Actually, I’m no fashion queen and no kitchen princess either, and some of the products you’ll usually find in someone’s bathroom or kitchen, are … in my stamping stash.
- salt to sprinkle on ecoline backgrounds
- hair spray to seal ATCs or cards
- petroleum jelly to create peeled paint backgrounds
- shaving foam to create marbled backgrounds
So, now over to my workdesk!
You’ll probably notice I cheated a bit. Normally there are inkpads scattered all over my workdesk, but I put them away before I took the pic. What’s left are only some stamps I recently used or was planning to use. The blue one that needs to be mounted is a present I received from StampItCrazy for taking part in the wonderful “Macabre Monday” challenge.
The finished piece you see on my workdesk is a gothic arch I created for the Inkurable Stampers Gothic Arch Challenge. If you’d like to see it more in detail, please check my next post!
