WOYWW - Warts and All!

WOYWW0604

Well ... you have all heard of Tracey Emin and her unmade bed! I am Linda Elbourne and this is my untidy desk!

We are 9 minutes away from Wednesday (Well I am!) and I am feeling very brave this week ... Everything ... and I mean everything has been left exactly where it was for the world to see.

So WOYWWers ... feast your eyes on this lot. I know there is no hiding place from all your prying eyes so I am even going to include some places of interest ... stuff gone horribly wrong!

Firstly I have made a new friend ... no seriously I made her ... in a moment of insanity ... burning my fingers and WOYWWa0604everything ... I created this ... erm ... thing from a truly beautiful stamp. I have no idea what possessed me to think it was going to be good ... but as I said this week you are getting warts and all. Her first name is Destiny and her surname is Dabin :0) I must admit she is very good at ballet ... but that is where her strengths start and sadly finish!

WOYWWb0604 And for my next trick ... I took a truly beautiful flower stamp ... and decided to paint the Grungepaper a disgusting yellow ... made it up and decided it was disgusting so I edged it with red ... at this point it was even more disgusting than ever. Not one to give up easily ... I threw a pot of copper embossing powder at it ... it did n't smell too good under the heat gun I can tell you and it looks ... well minging!

So there you have it ... my desk and my out takes ... so c'mon ... be a sport and show us yours! We all meet up over at Julia's place every Wednesday ... I will see you there!

Your desk looks quite tidy really and Destiny looks fine wish I could still sit as she is doing.
Wish I had your sense of humour you always make me laugh and Brenda's comment made me laugh too.

Cher~ said...

I actually like the looks of Destiny and think she'll become a new fav on your desk. Your rose doesn't look so bad on web photo and I'm confident you're going to find the perfect spot to use it somewhere and be happy for your experiment.

wooltopcrafts said...

Hi Linda, I think all of our desks get a little messy. It is because we just have so much craft stuff! :)

Love your blog. :)

Paula Gale said...

LOL - what a supple lady destiny looks - she's got more moves in her that i have at the mo LOL...

Thanks for sharing all your minging bits - who'd have thought that LE did minging???

Paula x x x

Angie said...

Firstly I have to say that your desk could not be described as tidy or untidy ....its just ....normal.
You say 'warts and all ....where are the warts lol....Destiny might look better with a hat or hair??? ...do you have a project in mind for her or is she destined to sit on you desk as a companion?
The rose ?? ...well it actually looks sort of grungy and cool.

Sarah said...

I have to say that seeing your outtakes gives me hope

Mummylade said...

that flower might have been disgusting before but it's fantastic now!!

Glen said...

She's got a nerve....showing off like that in that pose. LOL. As for your desk Linda....you think THAT is untidy? No siree...I can't see mine! As for the rose...how about covering it in glue and sprinkling with black glitter - maybe use for a Halloween project! Oh yes, I'm full of ideas! See you on Saturday. TFS. ~Glen~

LadyBug said...

She looks a bit too supple to be my friend!!! look how high she can kick her legs!!!!! and that rose looks quite nice from this side of the 'puter!!!

The Inky Minx said...

I'd share my warts and all but most of my mis-haps end up in the bin, usually the more i faff to make um better the worse thay become, so i just stopped trying lol *air kisses sweetie darling*

I think your rose looks 'interesting'! maybe the photo has flattered it, but it looks great to me!

Angelnorth said...

Nice to see some "nearly but not quite" - I'm guessing we all have plenty of those! Lots of lovely crafting to catch up on with your posts over the last few days too - fab stuff!

craftytrog said...

Whole lotta grunging going there Linda! Like your new flexible friend! I usually tidy up after revealing all, as I feel so ashamed after seeing all those tidy desks!! Lol! xx

At least you have room on your desk for Destiny to sit. Bet she'd give Darcey Bussell a run for her money striking a pose like that! Rose looks great to me xx
