WOYWW 161 A Mess and July's tag

Hello there fellow Wednesday (and latecomers also welcome...) Stamping Ground Desk Hoppers.

I have been a busy bee this week.  I made another Anna (Finnabair) inspired canvas triptych (faint, she even took the time to come look at it and comment - I am so stoked) and then Tim posted his Tag on the 1st for the month of July which is all abut today being 4 July so Happy Independence day to any American friends popping by.  I changed mine up to make it about our special day here in South Africa in April called Freedom Day so my July tag is a bit confusing cos it says APRIL all over it...go figure.

Above is the panned out view of the chaos on my desk and below is the close up so you can scratch through all the things I have been trying and testing and playing with for this tag...
Now I am off to see what I can see on your desk if you have linked up to Julia's desk over at Stamping Ground where she patiently oversees about 200 odd desks and tries to keep us all in line.

Thanks for the visit



  1. Hi there. Nice to pop in and see your creative world this week. I won't stay long; don't want to give you my cold! Hope you have a good creative week though. Love the tag. I have to say, seeing Table Mountain on the top of your blog makes me rather homesick today; just one of those days.

  7. I'm not sure if we're the ones keeping Julia in line, actually! LOL.

    Lovely tag - but you're right, a July tag saying April is a tad confusing. Or is that a tag confusing? Hehehehehe

    Thanks for stopping by....

  8. Thanks for your lovely comment, Bella - and lol - I do know what you mean, only too well, about so easily ending up spending all day online and not getting any actual creating done!! I'm feeling a lot better now, thanks, and feel a lot better now I've got most of my ATCs set off for the swap.

    From what I can see of it, that tag looks gorgeous! Lovely bright colours. Nice busy, productive looking desk, too!

    Happy WOYWW,

  16. Hello Bella,
    I am not familiar with Anna Finnabair but your art is amazing so she must be a great influence. Love you tag. I looked back at the previous post (the snooper I am) and I liked the tag. I am lovin' that elephant image.

    Thanks for visiting my desk. BTW, Apollo is a boy!!

    Take care and keep rockin' out the beautiful art.
