Another Wednesday is upon us and crafters the world over are sharing sneak peeks at their workdesks in the biggest blog hop in craft land, all hosted by the ever gracious Julia at her Stamping Ground blog.
My desk is in its usual chaos... in fact, even more so than usual!
As you can see, the chaos has eaten pretty much all of the (small, remaining) usable workspace! Whoops. :) It's the good kind of chaos though... the post-creative kind of chaos. :)
I have been doing quite a bit of crafting this past week and the various bits and bobs littering the desk are testament to my creativity - stencils, paints, inks, pens, stamps, you name it! :D There's also a sheet of digi stamps that I've been colouring this evening while chilling on the sofa.
My creations over the past week have included my first ever attempt at an original painted canvas and a whooooole lot of ATCs. I've been on a major ATC kick lately, particularly hand-drawn ATCs, and over the weekend I joined in a zentangle-a-thon happening at and created all of these:

I had a lot of fun making these cards... and playing with some inks and pastels to make backgrounds to zentangle over. :)
I've got several more in progress, plus an idea for another (bigger) original canvas. So many ideas, so little time! :lol:
Oh and before I go, here's another photo specially for Julia, who was concerned last week about the apparent disappearance of my AIMEE alphas which have been stuck to one of my computer screens for.... oooh probably over a year now(!), waiting to be reused. :lol: Worry not Julia, they're still there... just hidden behind the ever-rising piles of crafty chaos! :D
Happy WOYWW folks - thanks for stopping by. :)

Lovely doodles. You do fine work - mine never turn pout as well as I see them in my head :) I like the addition of a bit of colour too, although I know the purists say B&W and a little pencil for shading. I would have guessed the colour over the pen work - but I guess it might have dulled the black if it was that way round! Why it pays to READ the WOYWW post and not just look at the pictures LOL!

Happy WOYWW!

I love your Zentangle work, it's fab. There is nothing wrong with a messy desk, it just shows that there's a lot happening! That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!
Happy late WOYWW. Pam#28
