WOYWW 212 – playtime!


Hello there WOYWWers!  I am playing and playing.  My plan today is to carry on with the original idea for the pyramid thing from yesterday.  Petrina and I have been chatting via email and she is happy for me to alter the template slightly so I’ll probably give that a go first, then carry on with creating.

My desk is looking like this today – not too bad, for a change.

woyww212The one thing worth mentioning is those brush looking things on the left.  Sorry in advance for the upcoming rubbish photo.  I took it then it got dark before I uploaded it, and only then found it was blurry.

woyww212aPopped in to town with DD yesterday to sort her new glasses, and I found these in a store called The Works.  They are soft rubber tools, perfect for the Gelli plate.  I saw some at an art shop for over $20 so £2.99 is a deal.

I have a little pile of Gelli pulls on contact paper, but a couple of them I have to hide, lest someone who I don’t want to see them, sees them.


And to update – the electrician was here again yesterday, for HOURS, but he seems to have fixed the power issues – turning off the kitchen light no longer trips the circuit YAY! It’s safe to leave my Mac on. Fingers crossed .

Looking forward to desk hopping today – shopping and ice skating, as ever on a Wednesday, but I really want to see what everyone is up to!

  5. Oh, I would love to go ice skating. Haven’t been in years. Kinda not in the neighborhood here.

  6. Hi Mary Anne, glad you liked the tags! I got some of those detailers from The Works a while ago, thought ‘they’d come in useful for something’- I have so much stuff bought under that premise. Love The Works though, get so many bargains in there. Gelli plate work looks very interesting, I must say. Have a great week,Hugs, Shaz #48 xx

  7. I’ve seen (and made) a lot of gelatine monotypes but yours really are to drool on… fabulous!! Happy woyww and a hug from Holland. Marit #91

  8. It is good to sort out the electrics as it can wreck havoc with our toys. The tools for gelli plates look very interesting .

  12. Lovely tidy desk today MA! Love your gelli prints , the diamonds and the numbers one are my firm favourites and wowzer to the brush set at that price, you made out like a bandit.
    Had to smile at your need to salute my cushion covers… it’s hysterical because I always get the same feeling and actually wondered if some peeps would be offended by them! (you see, as a child I went to an American elementary school in Libya…. yep, I was an expat brat before I was an expat wife, perhaps it is one of the reasons I am so good at it)? Anyways, I pledged allegiance to the flag every morning for years… can recite the Declaration of Independance… and none of the teachers thought it wasn’t quite pc to expect this from an English girl)!! LOL

  21. Those gelli plate prints are gorgeous.Oh I wish I had another 4 hours each day to try all these wonderful things I keep seeing!

  22. I’ve used those rubber things for oil, acrylic and watercolor painting and for pastepaper. They work geat and the paint comes right off them.

  23. The gelli prints are just stunning. I’m amazed how tidy you can keep your desk despite all the inky messing you’re up to.
