What's On My Workdesk Wednesday 222? Multimedia Canvas

Hello fellow Wednesday Desk Hopper.  Welcome to my desk in Cape Town, South Africa.  Today I give you an overview of my work area as Julia posted on Monday about her new storage acquisition and so I promised her that I would show how I have lined all 6 of mine up.
Not a single one has paper in it...I wonder what the inventors of this 4 drawer paper storing unit would think when they see what us crafters use their products for.  I have mostly stamps in mine and one or two have punches or lazer cuts.

Then here is a close up of my desk where I have used the Kaisercraft stencil/template with gesso and texture paste as a sample for a Multimedia class (part 2) that I am teaching tonight.
In the background you can see the cover of my art journal where I have used a local brand of crackle paint.  It is quite the best I have ever used!  Over my many years of crafting, I have tried many brands.  This one allows you to fiddle a bit with the top layer and I am so excited to see it worked with the distress paints too as I tested a bit on the side of my canvas.

Well, that's me for today.  Might be a tad late in desking as I have to be at school for my son at 8:00 today and then teaching tonight, so see you tomorrow!



  1. Hi Bella
    Wishing once again I was there to take you class ! Looks fun ! I have had mixed results trying to crackle too - can be a bit disappointing ! Hope you enjoy your teaching tonight ! Was MIA last week (see blog !!) so just admiring your market stand - it looked great ! Have a good week ! Ali xx
