WOYWW 6th October

Hello all you WOYWWers - and for those who aren't or who don't know what it is check out Julia's Blog and link yourself in.  It's fun to nose around everyone's workspace and get inspired.

Anywhoo, what is on my workdesk...... lots of stuff!  I'm working on this display box thingy that has sat nekkid and neglected for well over a year - probably nearer two!!  I've given it a coat of gesso (sorry Doone, I had to do it!) and now I'm layering up some grungy inkyness (which is why all the distress inks are scattered around).  The flash has bleached a lot of it out, but there is some colour going on there.  Various shades of grunge (scattered straw, antique linen, brushed corduroy, weathered wood) and a few shimmer mists and various mini-mister concoctions of mica, ink and water.  I'm just spraying, dabbing, wiping and splodging different things and building up the layers so it looks suitably old and grungy and lovely.  Once I feel it's ready I'll start putting some backgrounds in the different niches and some bits of ephemera and various stuff.  There's a pile of stuff I've earmarked for this project just to the right of the desk. 
Oh, you can see I've been playing with my Tim Holtz tattered leaves as well :)
Happy Wednesday everyone.

ooh you've just given me some inspiration for my printers tray that my WOYWW post was about - I had wondered about coating it so that I could ink/spray and distress it up a little - you may have just pushed me to do so!!!

Can't wait to see it finished! Am still getting my head around Gesso... why do I need it if I have to sand it off again? *scratching head* But have invested in a pot so will be a good girl and use it!

Love the tattered leaves that you've used on the tag - are they metal? They look fab. Also like the pile of bits and pieces you're colecting for the box - I've started collecting but find it very hard, actuallY! Following you with even more interest!

Love that box - I too have loads of things to alter and they just sit there and sit there. Then I buy more!
Thanks for sharing.

So many lovely altered things around today, I think this is the third printers tray of this type that I've seen, looking good so far, show and tell when it's done?

I really like what you've started on that box. I'm sure it will be grungy in the end! (#1 this week)
