Happy Wednesday folks!!
Its time for the weekly blog hop hosted by the fabulous Julia over at The Stamping Ground !
Why not pop on over and see what everyone has been up to on their crafty spaces this week?
My desk today is another painty one...
I've been determined to get back into the swing of some challenges, and this is the start of a colour challenge I'll hopefully be posting by the end of the week (if it gets finished as I would like...thats the thing about colour challenges, if it's outside my comfort zone I spend ages just looking to see if I like it, and if I don't it won't get posted!!)
The challenge is tan, neutral and bright pink, as you can see I haven't started on the pink yet!!
I'm thinking pink texture paste through a stencil.......... maybe.......!!!!
The grid stamp is a big favourite of mine from The Artistic Stamper......looks very odd as I only ever seem to use paint with it (which means it gets VERY messy!), and I only stamp a little at a time so its got one filthy corner with the rest clean!
Hope you're all having a good week!
Love Trish xxx


  1. I like that mesh stencil you have there. That could be very useful.

  5. You have such a beautiful desk, Trish. I love how your stamps are stored and the colour of your wall is so fresh. I may need to redecorate!!
    Good Luck with your challenge, pink sounds scary with those colours but I bet it looks stunning.
    Happy WOYWW

  9. Hi Trish thanks for popping in to see me. Do you stand up to craft? I ask because of the considerable stash sot age under your desk!! I too love your grid stamp. Great start to the colour challenge - good luck with it. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 89

  10. Its' good to see how you tackle your projects - will look forward to seeing the finished thing. x Jo

  11. Looks like you are up to creating an interesting result! I love to indulge in an inky painty mess.
    Love joZarty x

  12. Ooh background stamps, one of my current "must-buy-more" things! Intrigued to see how your project comes out. Thanks for visiting my blog today, happy Wednesday! Sarah x (88)

  13. I must say, very intriguing! Have a great week! Darnell #55 (Thanks for coming by my place already!)

  14. happy woyww, good luck with your project, that mesh stamp looks really cool, might just have to get me one.

  15. The grid stamp is very cool. I can see why you'd only use an end of it, it makes for a nice added piece on your work. You wouldn't want it to overwhelm. I'll bet you use it a lot to add a little something. I like the idea of tan, neutral and bright pink, but I can see them being hard to work with. I love how bright your bright pink is. Fun!

  16. I've never had the courage to stamp with paint! Love how the stamp has ended up though! The project looks great so far, but that is an odd colour combination, stick with it!

  18. Mmmm can't wait to see how it turns out. Thought I was the only one who can just look at something for hours!! Happy WOYWW Cindy #14

  19. The color challenge is looking good so far. Love the grid stamp! Some times we have our favorites, and if it does not look pretty, that means that it is well loved! I think your idea for the pink sounds neat! Have a great WOYWW! -Amanda x61

  20. A filthy corner with the rest clean...hmmm...sounds a bit like me!!!
    Hugs, LLJ #3 xx

  21. HI! Little late coming round (as usual). Which means I got to see the post after this one. In a word: Awesome!!!! Love all the texture and color scheme! I too would love to get into stamping with paint but, that would be a whole new addiction, I fear. HA!
    I'm like you in two ways, clean stamps later (in a bunch) and playing with color schemes which is too much fun!! More fun than cleaning, I must say!

  22. the background looks great, and i like that stamp. no wonder it's one of your favorites. happy WOYWW!
