What's on your workdesk Wednesday - 204

Wow, Wednesday again!
Thank you for all the super comments from everyone last week.

I am away from my desk this week so I am cheating a bit (sorry Julia!). Here is my desk when I last worked at it. As I receive so ,many comments about the tidiness, here is some messiness! Do pop over to Stamping Ground by clicking on the button in the sidebar, and prepare to take a journey around the world visiting all the desks.


I bought a clock blank from the MDF man at Ally Pally, so couldn't wait to use it.I coated with gesso and then collaged paper scraps. I cut a circle of foam board for the clock face, covered with paper and distressed the whole thing with some watered down acrylic pint in a beige colour and coated with some Glue and Seal (Ranger). The numbers were rub ons. Here is the finished  Shabby Chic clock on the wall!

  1. Love the clock, great work. I've always wanted to go to Ally Pally but never been able to go which is probably a good thing for the sake of the bank balance. One day.....

    Have a great week

  5. Well now that is special! what a great use for scraps! One old thing I have a ton of is those typewriter key letters and numbers. I may just have to get ANOTHER clock and have a play with this. But I will make darn sure it is QUIET. The Tando one is driving me MENTAL with it's TICK TICK TICK!!

  30. This just makes me smile. At first I thought it was part of a double wedding ring pattern, then I saw the stop watch and THEN I got it. What a cool project.... great color blending. Thanks for stopping by the Fun Room.
