WOYWW 111

Hi to all crafters joining in with WOYWW over at Julia's Blog, if your wondering what I am harping on about why don't you check out her blog and have a nosy at some brilliant crafty desks.  Wow I can't believe I am so early today, I just couldn't sleep, I have been wondering about since 4am and decided around 5am to take pics for WOYWW.  The lack of sleep is my bad back yet again but yipee they have put me in for some more steriod injections, which are fantastic and means I can walk without pain.  Normally I would blog towards the end of the day after doing some crafting so you can see a messy desk, but I had started getting bits out last night for a challenge I want to do so I took those pics this morning.  Onto my desks......

On my desk is a sketch for deconstructed sketch challenge blog, which I have just found and the stamps ready to use are lili of the valley for the challenge blog which is pink and blue, hence the papers on the desk.  Also on there is my faithful colour chart and a colour theory book.  I have major issues with colours and struggle to put colours together, alot of times I give up on the challenge or us plain card stock instead of my wonderful patterened papers.  I am addicted to patterened papers and have so much that I really need to use them so I have started studying colour.  I have just started but I am planning colour charts etc to see if this will help.  Also on my desk is some new whimsy and greeting farm stamps.
Last night it felt like I had a whole new colouring medium without them being new!!!  The other day Sheena Douglas was on Create and Craft, and I really like to follow her programs as she really inspires me, so I taped it and watched it on Monday.  She was selling whispers pens, and I was really impressed what they could do, and I was really tempted to go looking on the interent for these packs (3 packs at around £12 a pack).  Last night I was deciding what I would use as a colouring medium and noticed that I had these whispers pens, now initally I hadn't been at all impressed when I got them 2 years ago as the really left lines and didn't blend well at all, so a bit disappointed that the pens on Sheens's program were the same ones.  Then I remembered that Sheena talked about the right cardstock, I'm quite new to watercolour cardstock and wow they work, fantastically, I'm really impressed and excited that I get to have a go, I also can't wait to try my watercolour pencils and twinkling H2O's as well.  Also on my desk is a new journal as I am going to have a go at Kate Crane's monthly journal and I'm hoping to have my page ready to start at beginning of August.
I hope you all have a fantastic and crafty week, and a big thank you to all who have left lovely comments, I really appreciate them all, sometimes I don't get back to everyone each week as I try and spread through them all weekly, so normally by the end of the month I manage to get around everyone.

Morning Kezzy

Your post starts out much the same as mine - being up wandering since 4 too :-(

I have the whisper pens which I got a few years back and was so unimpressed. I will be keeping an eye out here to see how you get on.

Another WOYWW early bird this is too much for a night owl like myself lol.
Colour theory is really interesting and a huge subject to study I've only ever tickled the surface and keep promising myself to delve further into it.
Thank you for sharing

Goodness! That is an early morning rise! It is amazing the difference that different paper can make. When I went to my first Copic marker class, they had us repeat the same technique on 5 different kinds of paper. It was eye opening to see how the different papers took the medium! Good luck with your pens- Amanda #45

Interesting desk. I was up early today also due to pains... I am relatively new to stamping too I started in the fall of 2007 and when I found out how fun and rewarding it is I kept on playing with it. I don't know much about colors etc but my daughter (has an art degree) has been helping me to learn some techniques. Have fun. Thanks for sharing. Vickie

So many things we buy dont seem to work properly because we are missing a key piece of information and they end up at the back of a cupboard or worse, being thrown out ...glad you found your key.

Love the rainbow of colours on your pics this week. Hope you enjoy using your pens again. I recently thought I'd wasted money on investing in Promarkers as I couldn't get the hang of colouring. After going to a couple of classes and learning shading techniques I love them. It's still a work in progress but don't feel I've wasted my money now.
