WOYWW 272 # What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

A big welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends.
Angela here to show you "What's on my work desk this Wednesday"(WOYWW).
How quickly it comes round again, Wednesday I mean. If you are not sure what this is about? visit our host Julia and you will have access to desks throughout the world, so hope you will hop over to the
Stamping Ground and all will be revealed.
At last it's finished!
Put the flag up! Higher, Higher!
Anyway here is the finished Alice journal page, hope you like it my friends.
This was my desk on Monday morning.
No change there I hear you say Lol!
But if you look today this is what you would see.
So many of you asked to see this so it seemed only fair to post it on a Wednesday and here it is.
I started by colouring in the stamped images and attaching them to the page and added shadow for depth.
I finished the glue lines with a little gilding wax, crackle glaze on the flowers and stickles glue on the toadstools.
Just so the Hatter and Alice know when it's time for tea, I added the clock.
The sentiment on this page is a 'Deep Red' rubber stamp and the one above which is not so clear here is Stampotique.

Hope you have enjoyed looking.

Nice and quick today, off to visit my desk friends.
Happy Crafting and desk visiting,
Angela x


  1. This is just fabulous Angela! I love those characters and the sentiment really did give me a good laugh... Brilliant work my friend. Anne xx

  2. I LOVE your Alice journal and love Octopode factory too..everything about this is totally fabulous and the sentiment really made me smile very widely! Hugs Carole Z X

  3. I LOVE your journal page! That insanity saying is great and your style is wonderfully Tim Burton-esque.

  4. What a great page! I love all about it! Super texture!
    Thanks for visiting!

  5. Your pages are quite gorgeous - the characters are so different from any other rubber stamps I've seen about Alice, and I love their quirky originality - I shall be looking out for them! Thanks so much for stopping by my desk, I hope you have a great week,

  6. I knew there was a reason I thought of Johnny Depp in Alice in Wonderland when I saw your art work. Looks great. April #55

  7. Definitely enjoyed looking, Angela! This is well worth a look - it's totally gorgeous! A lovely modern take on the Alice theme with the somewhat zany stamps. The background is awesome, and I am sure it is even better in the flesh than on a photo, which tends to flatten things and you can't see the shine. An excellent piece of work! Well done indeedy.

    Thanks for your visit and your nice comment. I agree with you that bereavement cards really need to be made specially for the person in mind. Never an easy task at the best of times.

    Happy WOYWW,

  11. Isn't that an interesting technique of adding the figures? It certainly makes them stand out from the background. I love the sentiment too, made me smile!
