WOYWW#366 What's On You Workdesk Wednesday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends. 
Here we are for another Wednesday at the Workdesk. 
I am here again to show you:

"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
Stamping Ground, our host Julia will explain.

However the link up will still be with Jan this week.

So here is my desk for today!

I cannot say that I have tidied up much and I make no apologies because I have been busy.
I know that some of you asked about the Finnabair rusting paints that I had on my desk some weeks ago and I have finally got round to using them on a new Shrine I'm making.

At the moment it's black but by the time you see it again it should be complete.

Some of you may also notice a load of old tax discs at the back there. We no longer have these in the UK and someone has given me these. Her husband has collected them over the years and I am going to use them on a birthday card for him.

So that's your lot really other than I would like to show you the new ATCs which arrived this week.
Many thanks to Marit who sent everything in that gorgeous envelope with the lovely blue postcard too. Then  Neet sent me that gorgeous Crazy bird and Christine's card... well she just knows crafters so well Lol! and Nikki who also sent me lots of little things to play with you are so kind, thanks to all of  you.

So that's me done for today.

 Thank you for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
happy crafting,

Angela x

  6. Morning, thanks for the ATC. I blogged it this morning and emailed you to ensure I have your correct deets to send you mine (sorry for the delay).
    Great idea of using the tax discs for a card-must admit I also kept mine, I liked having one.

  7. I'd just like to day how much I admire your triptych ATC! I don' think that's Eve been done before and it was a really clever idea :-D
    As is the recycling of tax discs for Man Cards!!
    Hugs, LLJ xxx

  8. Blimey, I really should proofread before I hit publish.....sigh!! It should of course be 'say' and 'ever'.......mea culpa xxxx

  9. Great idea to use the discs for a male card. I really struggle to turn all the girly stamps etc into something suitable for the boys. Great collection of ATC's.

  10. Great post Angela - I would never have thought of using old tax discs - just wondering if mine are still sitting in my car file!! x Jo

  11. I'm intrigued to see what those rusting paints can do! Great idea to use tax discs on cards - I would have never thought of that. Lovely ATCs received - swapping was sure fun! Have a great week, Angela! zsuzsa #32

  16. Hello Angela. Thanks for visiting my blog earlier how wonderful so many ATC have arrived.... And I think your desk is very tidy as for my second desk in my room has a bomb go off but no picture of that as I am wrapping up my sisters birthday gifts and she can not see all the Can not wait to see how those paints are will have to look more into them. Have a fantastic week. Hugs~Anne L#3

  17. Hi Angela, Happy WOYWW, thanks for the visit earlier..I am curious about the stack of paper that the shrine is on..Is that scrap? Or just a surface to work on? I like the idea of a tax disc card. Cx #19

  18. I collected my tax discs too and when I bought a new car (some years ago now!!!) I used the old ones in a scrapbook page of my old car. I'd even saved the first pay & display ticket which is on the page too. LOL. Thanks for visiting me today BJ#32

  19. Fab little work in progress. Look forward to seeing it finished. Elaine no. 20

  20. How strange, no more tax disks... but a good idea to use them for a card.
    Happy WOYWW!

  21. It's all looking good. I spent a long time trying to figure out what that black thing on your desk was before giving in and reading and checking out the other pictures. PJ #47

  22. Wonderful ATCs. What a good idea to make a card out of the old tax disks. Let nothing go to waste. It's a great idea for a guy card.

    Have a great week

  25. The shrine looks very interesting, Angela, and the ATCs are gorgeous! What an intriguing idea to use old tax discs for art! I expect we shall all get nostalgic about them now that we no longer have them! Thank you for your lovely comments and birthday wishes. My birthday is all spread out with presents arriving late, which is rather nice! I'm so busy with other things at the moment that I wonder if I will ever get back to making art again! I've got all this lovely new stash and really need to get stuck in and try it all out.

    Happy WOYWW,

  26. Looking forward to seeing your shrine take shape.Those paints so great. Love your Ever-so NEAT desk- always!!
    Love the different ATC's.

  27. Hi Angela, thanks for stopping by earlier, your cards look fabulous. :) ( I have no clue what a tax disc may be though so I really studied the desk shots to see if I could figure it out :) ) ~Stacy #51

  28. The rusting paints sound very interesting. I would love to see what happens to your project. Great ATCs you got!
    Happy WOYWW!
    Hugs, peggy aplSEEDS@8

  29. Hi Angela, Lovely variety of ATCs.

    Fab idea to use the car tax discs.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Happy WOYWW

  30. Well Angela had no idea what on what tax discs are .. but found out through Google :D
    .. they are just like our car registration sticker, and we dont need ours either, for number of years now, it is all scanned and computerised and rather scary in some ways! :D
    Lovely fun atcs, well done!
    Happy WOYWW! Shaz in Oz.x #38

  31. Ooh I'll look forward to seeing what you create from the old tax discs! I really appreciate clever repurposing of things like that. I too have a little collection of 10 from the last decase stuck in my old tax disc holder so I must get them out and file them somewhere safe in case I think of a needle-felting application for them!! Thanks for stopping by my desk. Happy crafting, Max #31

  32. That black-gessoed shrine looks wonderfully intriguing. I can hardly wait to see the finish!

  33. Loving all the lovely goodies I am seeing everywhere, I am so bummed that I missed the celebrations!
    I cant wait to see the finished project with those paints.
    Happy belated WOYWW!

  35. Hi Angela,
    Great ATCs! Hope mine arrives there soon.
    Had a look at your project (post above). Really clever!
    I've just got some of the new Finnabair opal magic paints. Very nice!
    Have a great week!

  36. what a wonderfully NEAT and TIDY desk you have this week Angela... and I am still swooning over that finished Shrine of yours! Thanks you for the visit earlier this week (hugs) Happy WOYWW Scrapbook Lynne #45

  37. I just read the comments and I am happy to see I'm not the only one not knowing what a 'tax disc' is... it must have been a UK-thing as in Holland cars were registrated in another way and we had 'stickers' on the car windows... the discs are intriguing though.. enjoy using them! I am happy you liked my ATC and card, I love your triptych ATC too! Thanks for your visit to my blog earlier this week. Instead of creating, I sat on my balcony reading and enjoying the good weather last week. That's why I am late with visiting woyww-friends.. but today it's raining and it's a perfect morning to visit blogs so here I am, wishing you a beautiful Sunday! Hug from Holland, Marit #30

  38. I love seeing the stuff you play with. Kind of out of my wheelhouse but nice to see what others do with the products.

    I have extra ATCs if you'd like one. You have my email.. just drop a note with your snail and one will go into the post. Creative Blessings! Kelly #37


Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoyed looking around. Please leave a comment if you can as I really enjoy reading what you have to say.
When I know where you are, I can visit you too.
