woyww - new goodies

The light is terrible in this photo and I am starting to wonder if I even know how to reset my camera to the default settings.  Somewhere along the way all my tinkering has left me with shades of yellow or grey.  I should find the manual or ask the teenagers who know how to operate all digital equipment and probably caused the problem in the first place.

But what is on my desk?  Some new goodies that arrived today, new big brush pens, stencils, paint, stamps and brushes.  Getting ready for my new online class with Christy Tomlinson.  In the background you can see a small canvas that I have gessoed stencilled and then sprayed with glimmermist  ( a la RosA).  If you look to the right of my desk light I have a small india ink drawing that I was playing with.  Just an idea that i tried out and will rework on the larger canvas from last week for the hospital competition.  Can't show you the finished piece until I enter.  Now if you are wondering what the brown leaf shaped thing is  next to the magazine .....please have a guess.   I will send the first correct guess/comment a little gift.  

Off to see what everyone else has been doing on woyww


  1. Thanks for the great comment on my blog - you're right about feeling like Gulliver!! I did too..
    I think that leafy whatsit is a panel for something you're going to sew, a bag maybe?? Wild stab in the dark there because I know nothing about papercrafting, lol!!

  10. I did click for a better look....I have the same light you have! The one up at the back there against the it! Very interesting desk, thank you for letting me peek! Have a great week!

  11. Thanks for the nice comments re that canvas, which has turned out quite well, I think. Am actually happy with it. So nice not to have a deadline for anything! I see you have a jar of Golden something on your desk.

  12. Oh, and your unidentifed thingy looks like something that could be made using the (toilet) paper casting method, perhaps? (And then painted) ... maybe.

  13. That browny lump stumps me! Wish I knew and look forward to finding out. Maybe the gloomy light is a ploy to disguise it, ha ha!!

  14. Hi Sandra!

    Thanks for stopping by.

    My guess for the leaf shaped thing is that it's a printing block for indian silk printing or similar. I can see it's got texture. Either that or it's a vegetable of some exotic sort!

  15. ah, Sandra, the leaf thing is your manual for your camera that is why it the funny colours! :D Incidentally I would take it to a good camera person ie where you bought it maybe or somewhere they know what they are doing, we have two good stores here, and ask them what is wrong with the settings, hands on.
    Back to the guessing - first I thought it was one of those funny mouse things we had when we were young which we rubbed and the static made them crawl up your arm then I thought maybe glasses cleaner of the very odd variety but no idea really, it looked soft to me but others think it is hard, mm?
    Love the canvas, and the stash! Happy WOYWW! Shaz in oz.x

  16. With any modern technology, you need to find the youngest, newest person you can find, a five year old can do most things these days.

  17. I'm a bit late getting round some of the desks this week - doing it in stages so I missed your little quiz. That fabric stamp is beautiful combined the touchability (?) of wood, talent and a beautiful pattern. Thanks for the peep at your desk.

  18. For being # 1 this week, I'm awfully late visiting. I'm so sorry but, after a computer crash, I had to stop by and get a bit of inspiration from your busy desk this week. I also LOVE that wooden stamp in the next post. And fair pay always impresses me!
