What's on your workdesk. Wednesday.

I have decided to join Julia today. I love seeing what people are up to and how messy their desks can get. As you can see I am really untidy. I have been trying out my new distress ink colours and some crackle paint and corrugated cardboard. Behind the inks you can see the paper flower wreath that I am working on. I have also just finished decorating my ink storage tin (see picture below).

You can just see my little tote which has some of my re-inkers in.

I pasted various bits 'n' bobs onto the tin and then dragged some 'Lettuce' paint over the top.

I couldn't resist taking a photo of all of my inks together.


  1. Fab space but I find it very distressing to see all your inks cos I dont have any distressing inks :-) [not sure I would know what to do with them if I had to be honest].

  3. Hi Karen,hope you are well.
    Your desk looks v interesting,you will have to show the flower wreath off when complete,they do look fab.
    I have the storage tin for my DI's too! :o)x

  4. Hi Karen,
    Look at all those gorgeous new inks. I can't wait to get them.
    The only thing is, we will all need new ink holders now to fit all of them in.
    Your ink holder looks brilliant decorated. I am too scared to touch mine.
