What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday #592


Wednesday does comes around quickly!!

Once again I am showing you my desk,
linking this post to the Stamping Ground.

Firstly I must apologise for not getting to many of your desks last week - I am afraid life got in the way - I hope to do better this week...

Here's my desk picture for WOYWW 592!

A different surface showing a piece of water colour paper with a couple of Distress Inks added - waiting to dry and the next step.

You can also see on the right a couple of new purchases - on the top Tim Holtz Hip Haunts thinlits.

I have had one or two purchases arrive - I rather liked the packaging from Craftonline...

What have I been doing?

Well, yesterday I needed a bit of cheering up so I did a bit of pouring - this is a small table top... I used brown black and white paint.

The stuff on my drying surface is all either drying or waiting for the next phase... I have been using lots of paint...

To finish I will just add a Facebook memory from two years ago today and our UK allotment

We will have to buy our pumpkins and squash this year!!

Anyway, that's all for today - Happy WOYWW!


  1. wow, your paint pouring is fabulous! I don't have the space to try it... Love the FB memory - you certainly had a good pumpkin haul that year! Helen #1

  2. Cor Blimey! That is some harvest you had back in the UK. What a haul - are you off to market with them?
    Love the paint pouring, something I have not tried as yet, always intend to but never get a good day when I can.
    keep safe and crafting
    Hugs, Neet 8 xx

  3. Wow, those were big ones!! Were you entering a massive pumpkin growing competition or something? Lol. You must have had a very prolific allotment, I used to love having one as well. I still grow in a couple of raised veggie beds but nowhere the amount that I used to. That paint pouring looks fun, you really have the knack!

  4. Hi Susan. I just love that paint pouring you did! Fantastic. I really must have a go at some point... got so many canvasses around the house - and could be a useful idea for gifts... I just love the pictures from your allotment - that was some harvest! I remember having an allotment, too, and getting loads of yummy produce. Well done.
    Take care. God bless.

  5. What a harvest indeed! I wonder if this year will exceed the last? Paint pouring intrigues me a LOT, but not enough to add ONE MORE CRAFT to all I do already. Yours looks very interesting and with such MOVEMENT in it. Love it.

    Happy WOYWW!

  6. Oh my goodness, those pumpkins were huge! Would you be able to grow them in Australia? I've tried pouring too - it's so addictive! Haven't done any for a while - it's so messy - even for me! Drying it is the biggest challenge - and keeping it away from the cat! I used to lock my drying pieces in a vitrine but of course that made it slower. Good fun though! Enjoy your week, Susan! xx zsuzsa #22

  7. Wow that pour is incredible! will look stunning for the table top. goodness me thats a lot of veg, the pumpkins looks amazing!
    Have a great week

  8. Loving your paint pouring, it's a great technique. I started with it and hope now I've got more space to get back to it. The pumpkins are amazing, they are so much fun to grow. Have a lovely week and a very happy and safe woyww, Angela x16x

  9. Hi Susan, love the pour, I keep thinking I must try it, as I have a drawer full of acrylics. Love the colours in yours.Wow at your pumpkins, what a crop you had! Stay safe, Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #5 X

  10. Wow, the paint pouring is fabulous - I love the effect you've achieved and those are very much the sort of colours I'd go for too. That's a heck of a crop of pumpkins, and I guess a lot of delicious pumpkin soup for the next few months!
    Have a great week,

  11. Love the paint pouring! I have tried it on a very limited level but a bit nervous about the mess potential for something more challenging! Your watercolour surface is so bright cheerful - a bit like those enormous pumpkins!! Stay well, stay safe, Cindy #13

  12. I love your paint pouring piece - a great idea. Those pumpkins look wonderful - we do have a good climate for them don't we. xx Jo

  13. Great pouring piece, I made my mixture too thick last time and I haven’t had another go. I remember your pumpkin photos. Happy WOYWW Angela #25

  14. Susan, can I say WOW on those veg????? What a haul!!! An amazing assortment to be sure. I LOVE what you are doing with those pourings! I have never tried that, but those are fabulous!!! Must try in the future! Blessings for your Wednesday! Felicia #27

  15. Ok, I think you just blew my mind with that table. It looks like a beautiful marble effect. So stunning. I wish I could do something like that.
    Your allotment from last year, was incredible. I love this time of year when all the yummy squashes and pumpkins are front and center. Yummy!

  16. What a great pour Susan. That table is going to look spectacular! Stay safe and happy WOYWW. Sarah #4

  17. Thank you for your visit to my blog,

    Love the paint pouring and a great result, what a great table that's going to make.

  18. That table top will be beautiful! you completed lot's of projects I see ~ Look at all those pumpkins and squash! that's worth a repost for sure ~ Enjoy your new supplies, Love, Karen #33

  19. More fabulous pours it will be a super and unique table top when dry and put back together. Good way of using up dregs of paint too. Those pumpkins are massive, i'm not sure i'd want to take on the task of carving that big boy up. Happy memories Susan..
    Take care & Happy WoywW Tracey x

  20. DO you know, I've tried that blooming pouring technique so many times and have failed miserable every time! Your looks amazing. I don't know what I do wrong, but something is decidedly amiss! One time I had a pot of black paint which I knocked off my work surface to fine indelible splodges both on the carpet and the ceiling... impressive or what!
    I went to both of Kylie's retreats in Swindon and had a whale of a time.
    Thanks for the snoop!

  21. Well that’s an interesting combination Susan, water coloured Distress Inks and Paint pouring for a table top, and pumpkins from a giants garden! 😆😉
    Well done on all counts, was interesting that you’ve a Craftonline as we’ve one in Oz too. Just waiting for order from there and meditating on the next one, a bad sign, as need ink refills my DI are very dry.
    Lovely desky share sorry I’m late... again... 😁
    Thanks for being a blessing, and may God bless you too, especially in these unusual times, a blessing to rest simply in Him! Praying you’re all kept well too!
    Hugs, Shaz in Oz.x 😊

  22. Now you see, I don't have the patience for all the drying, but my word I like what you do - that tabletop is great! Love the autumnal photos and huge number of squashes - what on earth did you do with them all? Could you grow them in Australia, I dont even know that. I do know that the first thing I clocked in your pour photo is that you have bare feet on tiles. Of course, at this time of year here we’re all yelping and running over cold floors with bare feet!

  23. I hope to someday try paint pouring as it's so beautiful! I love yours!! Looks like you've got quite a few drying! Great memories! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

  24. Oh my goodness, Susan, your paint pouring is stunning! I have watched loads of videos about this and find it utterly compelling but have never drummed up enough courage to try it myself! And another oh my goodness - all those squashes!!! It looks as if you had to buy that particular car with the huge boot just to accommodate them all! I adore my latest soup recipe acquisition for roasted butternut squash soup. You could make a whole ocean of soup from that lot!!

    Thank you for your comment, and I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to my blog - complete with toilet seat lol!

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  25. Hi. Sorry I'm so late. That paint pouring looks good fun. The 'harvest from your allotment' looks grand. Where in the UK were you?
