Luscious, Luscious Color for WOYWW 206

Oh my. I am in love. Again. This time it's serious.

Sunday we celebrated Mother's Day in the USA - a day of appreciate for all that Moms do. It can be pretty funny when your family tries to decide what you would really like to do. That's easy. Spend time in the Fun Room. Well, that kind of happened. I was taken out (along with every other Mom in the region) for breakfast...for blueberry pancakes. Yummo.

But instead of playing in the Fun Room, I ended up with a new storage unit from my daughter's room so I did some reorganizing. Haven't had a chance to get back in there yet. That's way my desk looks like this.

 Kind of empty. But wait. What's that in the middle?

More color for the Fun Room? Sparkly color for the Fun Room?

YES!!  A new little shipment of Silks Acrylic Glazes just waiting to be played with. I  got them today and I have to work tonight so I don't have an extra moment or they would be open and I would be ooooooing and aaaaaahhhhhhing over their lusciousness. They are just heaven to play with -  they are so smooth once you apply them to paper.

This, well let's call it a banana leaf, was the result of simply applying other silk glazes in my art journal. I've got it bad. I am in awe of these paints. They are glorious. 

Are wondering what WOYWW is? It stands for What's On Your Work Desk and this is the 206th edition hosted by our friend, the lovely Julia Dunnit. It's a grand thing. You take a picture. Link at Julia's site and take off for a trip around the world via work desks. 

I'll be traveling next week, so will miss a Wednesday.....I hope I'll be okay!! But I will be back for the big anniversary and exchange of ATC's. 


  1. I've been having a look at your wonderful quirky birds and my Doodly birds say hello

  3. Hi Sara
    thanks for dropping by my blog. Yes i do sell my jewellery...I'm not sure which wing cuff one you liked as both I had on my desk had wings :o). You made me laugh regarding the elevated blood pressure on seeing my steam punk stash. Oh gosh your desk looks so nice and neat and I knew what was in those coloured pots as soon as I saw them...lucky you!!!

  5. Oh my goodness! That's RIGHT! The huge ATC trade is coming up fast!...Guess that gives me the perfect excuse to stock pile some hey?? I got a bit of practice in as you'll see if you stop by my work desk today.

    Oh my..how will you ever concentrate at work knowing those glazes are waiting to be opened? Have fun!!!

  7. How could you resist opening those pots of loveliness! The colours are gorgeous. Hope you had a great Mother's Day, ours was in March in the UK. Happy WOYWW. Pam#14

  8. Hi Sarah...Haven't managed to do a WOYWW for a couple of weeks - hope all well at your end of the world. I'm dead jelous of your lovely Silks acrylic glazes - what a fabulous selection of colours... look forward to seeing what you create with these.
    Happy WOYWW Gill xx #117

  9. I prefer an organized and clean desk, so this one was right up my alley. I've never heard of those glazes, but they are truly lovely.

    Thanks for dropping by while I slept. You have my permission to borrow my idea for the ATC backs. I think I even wrote a tutorial on how I make them, but am too busy to hunt for it at the moment (grin). Happy WOYWW from # 6.

  10. Ooooh, those paints are luscious....so bright and cheerful. I can see why you dived straight in. Are you taking them n holiday with you?? Lol!!
    Hugs, LLJ 29 xxxx

  11. I've never heard of those glazes but then I guess I'm into other things. I do want to see what you do with them, though, since I've seen some lovely stuff on your blog.

  12. Well, you just know I'm going straight off to Google for them on a recommendation like that!! Look forward to seeing more...

  13. Happy looking paints! Enjoy!

  14. Oh these colours, I would like to have them too!! And your journal page looks promising!

  15. Aaack! Bought some of those last fall after using them in a class... they ARE incredible and why in the world haven't I used them since? Thanks for the reminder... and have fun with yours!


Thanks so much for leaving a few words...it's so much fun to get feedback! Here's wishing you sunny skies (at least proverbially!)
