WOYWW 386

Happy WOYWW  deskers... I couldn't do it to you a third week... I went shopping!


I found somewhere who had in stock the Seth Apter mini stencils (That's Crafty)  and whilst I was browsing the stencils saw the large one too (not one of his designs)  which joined the others in my basket...  Then at the weekend I was in The Works and picked up some cheap trims, and then in Smith's I bought some pens..... I love the Pitt artist pens, and whilst these aren't especially cheap in Smith's I was itching to add to my collection of them!   the Stabilo pens were marked as being £15 off, well I fell for that, don't know if they are cheaper anywhere else, but hey, what the heck!! they'll be great for journalling,  they are a fine tipped felt pen, and as you can see (actually you can't, sorry!)  there are loads of colours - 20 in all!

Not a lot has happened to the journal page from last week, I stencilled some circles (Donna Downey) with Snowflake Fresco...and doodled round them with a fine line pen.

hopefully it won't take another week for something else to happen to this!
That's it for me, I'll leave you in the head desker Julia's capable hands for the rest of the desks.

Thank goodness for this post! I was having the vapours over your not doing any shopping. Love what you bought - am envious now.
Great start to journal page - now awaiting more.

Happy WOYWW. I am having shopping withdrawal symptoms, as I am currently on a real push to get my credit card debt paid off, so no crafty stash unless it is something like paper or bookmaking supplies. I have promised myself a treat next month if I sell some more Tarot readings. Loving the Seth stencils. Just read his newsletter and so much inspiration. Ali x #7

Anne said...

Love buying new stash to play with. Look forward to seeing what you do next with the circles :-) Anne x 17

Annie said...

It's good to see you've been shopping....think we were all getting a little concerned hehehe. Fab new stash too.
Have a great week.
Hugs,

OMGosh. I'm in stencil heaven. And those pens look like fun, too. Felt tip pens are probably the best, because they can take paint and not quit, like some pens. Don't ask! have a great Wednesday.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Oh, I really do like those stencils - very graphic design. I bet you'll use those loads! Nice to see some new stash on your desk this week, all is right with the world again!
Loved your comments on my blog, all i can say is you must wear some very odd pants!!
Hugs, LLJ 4 xxxx

Love those stencils but I'm limiting my spending for awhile. I have plenty to play with so I'm using what I have for now!

Loving your new stash! Just ordered some lace from eBay too - yours seem good value and very pretty! Have a great week!

Morti said...

I'm still trying hard to ignore the art journal in me calling. I just never have the time for yet another hobby - too many things in the pipeline!

Lovely stash, cute page. I'd have to cover it in Mermaids. Or fish. Probably both, to be honest.

Have a lovely week!

I like your art journal bubbles. They look very shimmery. It's always fun to buy new supplies - I'm 'trying' to resist!

Lindart said...

I do my journal pages just like you - it can take days or weeks sometimes to finish a page, I try to leave it open so when I walk by ideas pop into my head! I also like photographing it in stages,and I will often use a journal page I haven't completed yet as a part of another project (printed out). Thanks for sharing! Lindart #49

okienurse said...

Awesome page. Love the new stencils and shine on that page! Bought some new irridescent acrylic ink from D&R that is suppose to shine like that! Thanks for sharing and stopping by my desk earlier. Have a great week Vickie #11

Sarah Brennan said...

Love the stencils. I love the Pitt Artist pens too - they create great shading as long as you put them over something which has been sealed and is non porous. Happy WOYWW Sarah #31

Those stencils are so lush! Happy WOYWW Elaine no. 18

Julia Dunnit said...

Well girly, you've done more than me....on the shopping front! Ha! At last I can say, I've done something...by going away at the weekend I did some scrapbook pages at last. Now to get into the cards........! Pitt pens seem to be magnets for the likes of us...but I think you have more than me..., but then you do actually use them!! Nice stencil collection, really like the make it count one.

CraftyHope said...

Glad to see I'm not the only one who did some shopping this week. Love that large stencil! It's so fabulous, I may have to hop over to that site and see if I can get it too. Looks like you got some fun stuff. Enjoy it!

Angela Radford said...

Shopping again, does it never stop! Not that I have room to talk as I am going to the NEC next week, can't wait. Lots of interesting goodies here for you to play with. Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x

RosA said...

Hi Helen, love the stencils. Pens are good too!
I'm loving the Wanderlust course but I'm finding it difficult to keep up with all the activities. I make sure I see all the Friday videos though! And I've enjoyed pretty much every one of then!

craftytrog said...

A nice little haul, those stencils look good! I love my Pitt pens too, and buy them in Smith's when they are on offer. Look forward to seeing how your page develops.

Sue said...

Hellen, You will have fun using your new stash.

Looking forward to seeing the journal page as it progresses.

Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Happy WOYWW

Yay Helen, shopping! As you know, I went shopping too, and sometimes it's just refreshing to refresh our supplies and things. I have to tell you that crochet trim is gorgeous. Can't wait to see how you page comes out. Thanks so much for visiting. Sandy Leigh #44

Anne L said...

Hello Helen. Love your journaling page....what did you use to get that shine I am seeing. Looks like a lot of fun stuff you picked up. Thanks for visiting me earlier and have a wonderful week. Hugs ~Anne L #9

Lynne Mizera said...

Oh Those STENCILS! they are wonderful... I am loving the circles... and your journal page is inspiring me to go play with circles too! Thanks for popping in yesterday and taking the time to leave me a comment - Happy belated WOYWW! from Lynne in Canada #51

fairyrocks said...

That looks like a fun shopping trip! Thanks for popping by. Keep smiling and creating

Hi Helen,

You definitely have some nice additions to your supply. I like the Pitt pens also. Your background looks great; love the slight shimmer it has.

Thank you for visiting me already!!

Happy belated WOYWW

BJ said...

Loving the trims, Oh I SO need to get out the house and pop into Sutton but I guess The Works will be all sold out by the time I make it. Although I could go today????? Thanks for the visit and inspiration and prod and poke and just being a good friend. Hugs and thanks for visiting BJ#39

PS room back to normal and extra cleaned in the process, stuff sorted BUT I have hurt my neck - ho hum, perhaps Sutton will have to wait for another day and typically my work week is 3 days next week not the usual one!

Christine said...

Thanks for your visit earlier, life is settling back down now... thank goodness!
Knew you wouldn't be able to last much longer - retail therapy is wonderful!!! Love those small stencils, I'm sure you will be creating again soon.
Take care

Twiglet said...

Hopelessly behind with my WOYWW visits - again! Fab trims - I am a sucker for a bit of lace and ribbon! x Jo

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I know you gave me permission before to add this blog on my left sidebar, but I would also like permission to add your photo blog to it, too. That way I'll know as soon as (or at least soon after) you post and will be able to drop by sooner. Since I never do anything by e-mail, it's my way of keeping up on blogs I love to follow.

butterfly said...

Great to see the new goodies - though it sounds as though the Christmas miracle may not have been the only post recently with no new toys, so I may have spoken too soon - sorry!

Your fab bubble page has reminded me there's another page spread in my little journal which I haven't shared on the blog yet... now I just need to find time to write the post.
