It's that time of the week again where we all join in in the fun over at Julia's place.
The purpose is to show our desks (because people are by nature curious) and who knows maybe even inspire one another. 
Here is mine

I'm having fun using new stash I scored last week on a fair in Antwerp,
I'm creating a journal with kraft paper and bookrings I bought and the cover is well on its way

The background is made with a homemade stencil and some modelling paste, then I used my new Pebeo gilding waxes, doesn't it just look like metal??
Now I'm playing around with some embellishments, what do you think?
Still need to search for a focal image in the top left corner.

Last week I was busy with organizing my stamps and some of you were interested in my CD cases filing system and wanted some more info, so here we go:

 I just use empty CD cases (not the slim ones, and take out the black part)

These all get a number and are placed in a CD box.

I've also created a catalogue where I can flip through my collection, I've also added the numbers here so I can easily find the correct set.

It's still a work in progress and after last week I'm not sure anymore whether to unmount my wooden mounted stamps.
Time will tell.
Thx for stopping by and have a lovely week.

 Hello and welcome to my desk,

It is wednesday again so time to join in with the fun over at the Stamping Ground.
Can't believe it already has been 3 weeks since I blogged, my apologies.
Here 's my desk this week:

There is a stash of stamps, I'm currently organizing them, making a catalog and placing them in cd cases instead of in one big box, I've ordered some extra empty cd cases yesterday online. Once I'm done with these I will be tackling my woodmounted rubber stamps.

Also on my desk is my art journal,

I'm making some easter inspired spreads to turn into cards which I will be adding to my shop.

Have a nice day and thx for passing by.

Hello and welcome to my desk which is in much better shape then last week

you can see the finished page I showed you last week, 
I fixed the fact that the girl is upside down by making it look as if she is swinging

My desk looks that neat because I haven't done much crafting, instead I spent all weekend finalizing something very exciting, very own little e-shop where I'll be selling cards with reproductions of my work and of which the profit will go to UNICEF, all details can be found under the tab shop

3 months ago, on my desk for WOYWW 389 was this journal page, 

at the time I thought it was done,
but guess what, 
I've added some more layers
and NOW I think it is done.

Hello fellow deskers,

My desk is one big hot mess (again) today

you can see (among other things): a box of inktense pencils, my artjournal, some bookpages and crayons (tried out a technique I saw Carolyn Dube demonstrate with stencils and crayons; totally fun; did it together with my son)

Here's a closer look at my AJ

It is actually upside down, but suddenly I saw a face emerge out of the circles J

I also did some more faces in my sketchbook

Thx for stopping by, hope you have a lovely, creative week.

I've created this page after watching Kasia's Wanderlust lesson about homemade inks.

This isn't made using homemade inks, but ecolines instead, but I'm definitely planning to explore this further. 
I'm not sure whether this page is finished, but the more I look at it, the more I believe it is.

Wow, WOYWW is already running for 400 weeks, congratulations Yulia!

I must say my desk doesn't look very festive or busy for this special occasion, sorry for that, but we have been away for the weekend.

On my desk you can see a background in progress

And my sketchbook which I took along with me this weekend

in which I managed to draw some faces

Like I said this year is all about practice, practice, practice.
