What's on YOUR Workdesk this 144th Wednesday?

Unlike last week, when I showed and talked about several of my completed Altered Book covers and monopolized your computer and reading time, this week is just a peek of what is to come in the near future, as well as


one little rocking horse, this one made using stained glass materials. I'm sure Julia, our fearless leader, will be happy I kept it short and sweet (just like me--tee hee) this week.

Create With Joy said...

Happy WOYWW to you! Got to ask: how many rocking horses DO you have? This one is cute!

RosA said...

Book looks interesting! I put one on my "desk" too! Wondering what that white stuff is? (Too curious for my own good!) RosA#16

Terrie said...

The decorative tape is SUPER easy. Using waxed paper or freezer paper, stick on strips of masking tape. Decorate each strip of masking tape with paint/stamps, etc. Pull the tape off the freezer paper and attach to project. It's the "poor girls" version of washi tape which is just too rich for my blood. The decorative tapes are great for journals or holding something lightweight in place but since they've already been stuck once (to the freezer paper), they've lost a touch of their stickiness and won't hold anything substantial....they're strictly for decorative purposes. I'm sure I'll be using it in my AB! The nice thing about making your own is that you control the colors to coordinate with any given project.

Thanks for telling me about the white stuff. I thought it might be something exotic. That book on my desk just arrived from Book Depository UK. It cost $16 (AUST) incl. postage, and it was $45 here!

Such a sweet little rocking horse.

I love the rocking horse. I started collecting Swedish Dalla Horses a couple years ago. Can only afford one a year they are rather pricey! Have you been to Lindsborg KS yet? Swedish out and out! Let me know what you think about Traci's book. I am thinking about buying one. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #44

kay said...

cute rocking horse,am guessing tissue paper for a AB? happy crafting,x

Helen said...

Like the look of the book, as well as today's rocking horse. I've cleared the office out of large bull dog clips for myAB, must track some more down, or the proper clamps, but I wanted to make a start so I don't get left too far behind, lol!!

sandra de said...

Gorgeous rocking horse ...must be lovely when light is shining through the glass pieces.

Kate said...

The stained glass horse looks very special indeed. Any estimate on the number of rocking horses currently within your home? For me it would be rubber stamps, too many to count and some even I don't know I won!!

Julia Dunnit said...

I love the little horse..my sweet gal made me an angel from the same material and she's too good to put away. Is the new book good? The cover is enough to make me swoon!

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

Ooohh, can't wait to see what you're up to with that frothy white cloth and the book/magazine...intriguing! I like the stained glass rocking horse too!

Doone said...

Ah - you knew I would love the face on that cover and you put it there especially for me didn't you (not that I have an ego the size of a planet or anything) after I have finished visiting my keyboard is going into safely stashed mode and the glue is coming out....

the stained glass window off cuts unscaled beautifully into a very attractive rocking horse.

Fiona@staring at the sea said...

Oh wow! I've never seen a stained glass rocking horse before. It must look beautiful on a windowsill catching the light :o)I missed getting here last week, so will definitely be checking out that long post later.

Marilyn Rock said...

I keep seeing Tracy's book in many places; must be a good one. I adore the stained-glass rocking horse. xxoo

MaggieC said...

I love that rocking horse. I bet it looks amazing with the light behind it. Thank you for your visit, Elizabeth and your suggestions on the mica problem. Does that glue work when you want to apply the mica purely to a stamped image for the line art? I am very late visiting this week. I seem to have been playing catch up all week, and not doing very well. Have a good time with your altered books. xx Maggie #8

Such a cut rocking horse! Haven't been able to go book hunting yet. Too busy last Tuesday throught Thursday with granddaughter trying to have her first baby. Finally came on Thursday, much of my time spent at hospital. But all is well and a precious girl added to family.
