WOYWW - 92

If you want to see lots more desks with more going on than mine
She is the one responsible for this addiction!
On my desk this week you can see a couple of card I have made
and also lots of boxes holding bits
These are for my friend wedding cards
I have made the first batch and now have everything cut and ready for putting together
I have just finished inking the hearts for the front
Also on my desk are a set of new stamps that came from Speedy Cat Challenge Blog
when I won some candy - they are lovely stamps and I cannot wait to play
There are two images I have just finished colouring ready to go on some cards
Having tried the other week to choose papers first and then colour
I found that a really difficult way to work even if it is suppose to be done that way
So I have gone back to my way of colour the image how I want and then find what I can to make it work!
May not be the correct way but it works best for me lol

So sorry not to have visited many of you last week
but it was just one of those week that time seemed to have been going at double speed
Thank you all for your lovely encouragement with the inks I will practise some more and hopefully have some good results to show in the future
Will try harder this week but no promises

Happy Hump Day

I didn't even know there is a "correct" way to choose paper and color! Sometimes I do it one way, sometimes the other. It never occured to me that one way might be "incorrect". Hmmm - I say, stay with what you think is right for you.

I've not even picked my inks up again since, s'funny how things go in phases! So long as your method works for you, I think thats the right way to do it (oops nearly slipped into Punch & Judy there!)

okienurse said...

very nice work space. I think everyone has their own style of doing their craft. There is no right or wrong way and it takes a while to figure out how you want to do it. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #69

Hi Nicky! Have you noticed that so many of us totally adore your desk? My heart always lifts when I see it you lucky lady. And, choosing papers first or after colouring is all down to personal preference. Have a super day! Di x

Hi Nicky, nice work and very focussed desk. I rarely plan right papers because the colours don't always happen as I think they will. Cheers, Ros. (70)

There is definitely no right way to make art, cards included. Your desk looks busy but tidy and it is such a nice desk!

I think you should do it the way that suits you best, no right or wrong if the end product is how you want it to be!! Annette #5

Elizabeth said...

Hello Nicky, lovely tidy desk as usual. I usually colour your way, the image first then find the paper to compliment my colouring. That's because I like to have some ready-stamped and coloured images on hand. I didn't know this was the wrong way :) Elizabeth x #97

peggy aplSEEDS said...

Kezzy said...

Nicky, thanks for popping by today to say hello! I try to color most of my image and then pick my paper and then finish a few spots that I can tie into the papers! Works for me!

Thanks for taking the time to visit me. I can never get around to everyones desk and do every fifth from me up and down the list and everyone else who gets to mine. As we are never the same number it works quite well and I get to see lots of new desks as well as ones I have seen before. You have some lovely stuff on your blog and I always like to look at your desk as I love the fact that it has a history and I like that.

Your work area is so nice and neat, it's hard for me to keep this organized when I'm in full play mode.

MaggieC said...

I was quite certain that I had left you a message, Nicky, but it must have been the week before. Time does fly so fast. Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog. I am afraid I have not managed to visit everyone these last two weeks with all that is going on. I will try to do better this week. Love your little digi image, very cute.

Sam said...

Hi Nicky. I have seen your desk before because I just love that desk. Thanks for visiting. Cannot believe it is Wednesday tomorrow already!

Sherry Edwards said...

You look so beautifully organised Nicky - best of luck with getting the wedding cards finished.

Thanks for stopping by my desk and I'm sorry for not visiting yours earlier!

Have a lovely week.
