Hello my lovelies, whoot, whoot, it's Wed. again, time for Desker  to show what on our's and get to see some fabulous artist around the world, we all gather at our Miss Julia's ( Hostess with the mostess) here, grab a cuppa and enjoy, on to my desk..

I have been a busy Magpie so I've a wee bit to show you :O)..
This is a little sneak peek at what I made for a dear friend of mine,  using the whole set of my favorite stamp set, it turned out grrrrreat, can't wait to share it with you

I was playing with some chalk pastels, I colored the first tiger lily with the chalks, the second one beside it, was colored with water color pencils and water, the bottom one was colored with wood-less pencil crayons and Sansodor (odorless solvent), and this is why I don't color, not my thing, I do like the sansodor the best..

I sprayed some water on my stamp the used the chalks to color it, then stamped it, the second stamping is better, for the 3rd one I spritz the stamp with a bit more and stamped again, it gives a water color affect.

I made some alcohol ink with food color and alcohol, sprayed it on some water color paper, did some stamping trying to create a scene, I'm going to use this to make my Bro a BD card for April

Now these are way Kool, ATC Booklets, they hold 8 cards, I loooooove them, I need to get some lovely double sided paper, these are just practice ones, if your interested in making any the video I watched is here, thanks for visiting my nest, hope you all have a wonderful creative day, I'm off to water fit and will get my large cuppa and fly by to visit as many as I can..

Ooh, lots and lots of exciting work on your bench this week, Dianne. I love your own alcohol inks - what lovely dreamy colours; it reminds me of a gorgeous tapestry. The sun is pouring in through my window today and joy and creativity is pouring in too from your desk! I have no time for WOYWW today as I'm dreaming with the dragons, but I have enjoyed taking a look at what you're up to. Julie Ann xxx:)

Oh I am SO going to watch that video! I just made another atc sized origami wallet book, but it only has four pockets.

Dianne, you are so sweet and talented, I just love stopping by and having a good nosy here!

(The daughter ENJOYS fussy cutting, can you believe it? I can't stand it! She will actually walk in the room and ask if I need anything cut out . . . what a treasure!)

Thank you for stopping by this woyww, and a happy one to you!

Lovely chalky watercolour stampings... I'm not much of a colourer either, but the tiger lilies look fabulous. I think the one at the bottom is my favourite for looks...

Fantastic looking ATC booklets too, what a clever idea! So much going on in your nest, as always - thanks for sharing it with us!

Thanks for your visit, and I'm glad you like my teabag art - I would love to see your page. I am new to this and can see loads of potential in it. The colours are so subtle.

Off to explore your blog a bit. Meantime, happy belated WOYWW,

Someone has been creatively busy and how beautiful at that. The scene you created with your own alcohol inks is stunning and will be very appreciated. What lovely ATC booklets, Dianne! Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs!
