What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #429ish

Good morning everyone! It’s already hot and sunny this morning. Yesterday was in the 90s and so humid out I moved like a turtle! So a lovely day to be in my craft room.

On my desk is my latest project I am working on – a fall wreath. It’s a cutfile I bought last year from the Silhouette Design Store. The flowers are mums which are one of my favorites so I can’t wait to see how this final wreath looks.  As I am typing, I am simultaneously cutting a few more flowers in a grayish shade and then I will begin using my burnishing tool to roll and shape the petals. I have a wild looking wreath I recently purchased that I may use these with our I may find the round flat one that is made of a very heavy cardstock as the base.  Another option is that I may cut out one in heavy cardstock that came with the cutfiles myself.

You can also see on the left a Prisma Color chart for my color pencils. I recently caved and bought the big 72 pencil set. I figured, I own enough coloring books to justify having a bit more variety in colors. Yup, that’s the craft addict logic…don’t judge!!

The chart that Cheetarah asked about last week on my desk is more visible today and it is a Hex Chart created by Sandy Allnock an amazing artist to assist people that use Copics with color selections. I have gotten so used to using it, that when I forget to bring it with me to a craft session with my girlfriends, I feel lost.

Underneath the lovely stamp and die set on the right is some new yellow shades of cardstock to use for the center of my flowers. I will be using that on the flowers I am creating for this project.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with WOYWW (What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday),  head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and you will find desks from all around the world for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Have a blessed day!

    • Hey, April long time no see. It’s great to hear from you again. Yes, my next challenge is to sit my butt down and finish this wreath.

  2. Hi Belinda, look forward to seeing the finished wreath. I’m sure you’ll get more than sufficient use out of those pencils to justify buying them. Happy WOYWW. Sarah #18

    • I will post a picture as soon as I complete the wreath. That will ensure I will complete it. I am learning new ways to look at color pencils. So I think this purchase is going to be well worth the investment.

  3. Hi Belinda. You are going to have a lot of fun making up your wreath. Lovely autumnal shades for it.
    Take care. God bless.

    • Now I have to complete this wreath. That’s the good thing about showing many people is that hopefully, it will discourage my procrastinating ways.

  5. Looking forward to seeing your completed wreath… Gorgeous colours… Have a happy creative week ahead… May#15

  6. Hi Belinda. It is easy to justify crafting materials. We need them, simple as that! Lol. I love the pink cutting mat – why have I got a green one, I’m sure I need a pink one! Have a lovely week and I look forward to seeing the finished wreath. Heather #6

    • Heather I like your logic. Problem is I often “need” a lot of things!! ha ha I bought the pink mat at Joann.com. I think you need one too! Thanks for the visit my friend!

  7. Gorgeous colors! Can’t wait to see the finished wreath! Thanks for your earlier visit! Lindart #33
