Whats on my workdesk Wednesday #198

Hello everyone another week passes and its time to share whats on our workdesks today as you can see from mine, its very chaotic as usual I'm still trying to scrub the paint and mediums off my hands...
This week I have been playing with the pocket watch dies I made a mini album cover with the movers and shapers die and at the moment the big one is a work in progress....

There are some great photos of some amazing stuff on your post. Love what you are doing.
Try a Ranger scrubber for inky fingers/hands - they are magic.
Thanks for sharing and thanks for visiting me earlier.
