Woyww....change of scenery

This week, I thought it would be fun, and different to show one of my workshops from the weekend, actually both of them! I mean technically they are my desks, in a different place, and at a different time, but still a workdesk! So here are rather a lot of pictures of a very large desk with lots of busy creative artists! We made a alcohol ink book the first day, and a configurations box the next, and it was great fun with lots of chocolate, copious amounts of tea, and biscuits!
so neat and tidy, then this happened...lol
and then this...
and then the end results were stunning


 How fabulous is this splatter alcohol ink work :)), and how creative are these boxes?


Here is my box...


I had a great weekend at It's Crafting Time, and a big thank you goes out to all the girls who came and were creative! Gorgeous work!
If you haven't the foggiest what on earth I am waffling on about, pop over to the lucsious Julia, Queen of desks, and find out! It is great to be nosy!!
Happy Woywwing!!

those configuration boxes look lovely and I think your group obviously had fun - and got messy - which is par for the course. I am still sorting ribbons and also looking forward to a mini sojourn dans la belle France very soon...

Sam said...

Oooo! Nothing like having a good ole inkey session. Gonna have to take a closer look at the maps to see if it really is too far for me to come in a day!! I suppose my broomstick would be cheaper on the old fuel but my bum would be sore!! LOL!!

Some fantastic work coming from that workshop.

A great workshop always runs on its stomach as well as its talent. You had both and the results are a treat.
