What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #385

I'm very late to the party today. Had a class this morning and the rest of the day just disappeared. This was the scene at the kitchen table on Monday morning.

























I taught the baby wipe technique today and everyone had fun creating their own unique ink pad.

























The finished tree in Autumn colours.

Linking up with Julia and the Deskers, before Bake Off. Then an early night for me. Rock and Roll!

Hi Fiona. That tree is just fantastic. I love the way the colours go together. Well done. As to Bake Off - whoever goes to that sort of trouble to make such tiny cakes???!!! I know I like cake making - but that seemed a bit much :-)
Take care. God bless.

Gorgeous colors. almost like the wonderful array of colors we are having with Fall here.
It seems the days just fly by, never enough time to accomplish all the ideas that run thru my head. Have a fun week.

Beautiful colours on that tree. Looks like the real trees I saw up north this past week. There were some wonderful colours abound.

Happy WOYWW

I've not seen that technique used with a baby wipe, only blank inkpad felt, but how much cheaper are babywipes!
poor Selasi, I loved him!! Helen #1

Fabulous Autumnal colours, I love this time of year everyday the tree seem to put on a different show.

As for Bake off I think the writing was on the wall last week for the person who left.

I don't know the baby wipe technique either! I'd sign up in a second if I lived close by.

Very nice - trees are a favourite & the colours to smudge with the B.W.T. is brilliant.

CraftyHope said...

I don't think I know the baby wipe technique, but the results seem to be fairly fabulous! That tree is gorgeous for sure!

I still haven't got round to trying this technique out - the tree is lovely and look forward to you hopefully sharing the cards that were made

Susanne said...

That's really lovely. I might have to give that a go with a Christmas tree.

Heather said...

The baby wipe technique is so lovely... your use of it for the tree is just glorious! Sorry I'm so late! Have a great week! Heather (waywardgypsy) #51?

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Well, that's just clever! I have no idea what you're talking about but the result is really beautiful! IK thought of you in.the past couple of days, we've been back to Burry Port and the weather was glorious, the beach was fantastic. Shame we had to be there for the funeral of our friend who was only 58, but it was good to celebrate his life.
Hugs, LLJ 10 xxxx

That looks amazing!

alexa said...

Your trees are amazing! I've not seen or heard of this technique so would be very interested in knowing how it was done - if you ever have time for a technical post :). So effective. No wonder your ladies liked it ...
