WOYWW 301 lots of balls

Hi Deskers....
How you doing? ... back for another peek at my desk ... and why not, I like to share.
Julia likes us to keep it short (so do I normally ) but I think this will be a longer than usual post....... sorry.
Julia at the  stamping-ground  has all the names you need for an entertaining peek  at the worlds crafty desks do visit ..... and share its great fun.
I have a different desk to share with you this week (ok so this is from Sunday, but I did finish the project today).
Ta Dah ... my kitchen table

Some polystyrene balls, ephemera and a dish of something that looks like melted chocolate.... but definitely isn't...its the Powertex I shared last week. I thought I should use the bottle I brought at the show ... while I can still remember how to use it.

I had a lot of fun making these strange ornaments to put in the garden..... mind you it was VERY messy and I'm glad I had gloves on.
3 sizes of poly balls, a vase and a brooch.

This was originally a boring cream and brown coloured vase. I think I'm going to adjust the face and make it a bit less green.

The brooch...the light is terrible here its a much nicer colour IRL 
As this is WOYWW I should show you my real desk as of Tuesday evening.

 I brought some Dylusions sprays at the show last week ... only 3 colours.. Oh my are these fabulous? ... you bet they are ... they blend so well together.... cant wait to get more colours...... ASAP. 
This is my DLP journal along with stencils, paints, DI pads, sprays and some clear Gesso (amazing stuff). and other stuff.......blah blah blah.

Finally  a  humble attempt at a Mothers day card.... ( I make 2 the same ). I must admit I'm not spending as long making cards as I used to..... well there are only so many hours in the day..... and I need them all.
Have a fun week  and if you leave a comment I will see you on your desk very soon.....
 A question about comments..... if you take the time to visit why do you not leave a comment..... don't know what to say? ... just leave a face ... smiley or not I wont mind .....its just nice to know you've popped in.

  1. Great stuff, Janet! Those garden ornaments are quite extraordinary - I've never seen anything like that before and if I had, I'd never have thought someone had made them at home!

    Thanks for your lovely comment - we've had a great week. The surgery is only a week away now, and I'm beginning to get scared again - trying to hold off those feelings at least until a bit nearer the day itself.

    Happy WOYWW,
    Shoshi (no number or post or anything just yet lol!)

  2. what great projects so different - ive never seen anything like that before!
    Happy WOYWW!
    Thanks for sharing

  3. love the balls... let's stop there shall we?! Can't believe you've not had Dylusions sprays before, fab aren't they?! Messy, mind you... Have a great week. Helen 3

  4. I can just imagine you, up to your elbows in gunk! But, great result...those ornaments are wild and wacky and will look great outside in the garden. I bet you get some interesting web spam after your blog title today though, lol!!
    Hugs, LLJ 5 xx

  5. Happy Wednesday. I'm doing my visits of all my fav blogs while my twinnie munchkins play with the knex 😃
    I left you a smiley face first just so you knew I'd read right to the end 😃 now I've come back to say I really love your garden ornaments and no I didn't know you worked in a fabric dream job 😃

  8. Wow!! Your vase and balls are amazing. I wouldn't know where to start it looks an interesting technique.

  9. Hi Janet, wow, I LOVE those ornaments! Awesome pieces. I did think it was melted chocolate at first glance, lol. That bottle, and brooch- amazing. Totally in love with what you've done. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz xxx

  10. There ARE only so many hours in a day and I'm hoarding them all... but I promise if I find some extra hours I will share them with you. You are so smart to use your Powertex stuff right now while you still remember how to use it. I won't tell you how often I brought stuff home and months later... no clue. Your ornaments and vase are just fabulous! Great stuff!!! Judy #67

  11. Such prettiness for the garden! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #48

  13. The strange ornaments for your garden are awesome! I love the colour of them, and the one with the face! Very cool! Thanks for sharing! Lindart #61

  14. I am still intriqued with that stuff :) The project turned out awesome! I love dylusions sprays very bright. Keep up the making beautiful things...the world needs them! Shel@paperocotillostudio #74

  15. Hi Janet, I just love Powertex the more I see it. I am booked in for a couple of workshops with Ali-Craft and I am really looking forward to it.
    They are the local distributor for Powertex here. Hope you have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x 31

  16. That looks like so much fun and all the better when it's messy to work with :) They are really gorgeous and I love all the texture. The Dylusions are certainly gorgeous bright colours and your card is beautiful.
    Have a great week,
    Von #23
