So it is really Tuesday night, but I had  a major nap this afternoon and have been cat free for hours.  Sooooo I was able to finish up some major pieces and I am happy to share with WOYWW (What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday) lovelies. Again a gracious thank you to the amazing Julia at Stamping Ground who orchestrates this exchange.

LIFEBOOK (from left to right)

  • WEEK 15: You story matters; the ripple effect. Finally figured out what it needed. Heidi Swapp Color Shine. This started out as the shaving cream exercise from a couple of weeks ago.
  • WEEK 10: Praise for the Present. Again this is a detailed adventure with many many many layers. When I started this a couple of weeks ago I was thinking about how wonderful friends are. A real art journal page with hidden messages and oh such lovely drippage.
  • WEEK 13: Layers of love. Once I finally had a chance to sit down with this one it was truly a love fest. I’m not quite finished, and again I lost track of the number of layers. My inspiration was the new acquisition of Florescent Orange High Flow Golden acrylic.

And I am very pleased to share my texture extravaganza based on my neighbor’s backyard. WOW oh WOW. My husband even thinks this should be framed rather than “going on the fridge”. Actually I think you can see the degree of sparkle, glitter and puffy paint I used. So very proud of my clouds. I learned so much from doing this piece.

And last but definitely not least. I finished off a piece for my Journal 52 fully loaded journal. 20160510_231906

It is better to build a longer table than a taller wall.

Happy WOYWW to everyone.

    You have been SO busy – well done. I love the drop of water and the ripples. These are just great.
    Take care. God bless.

    your journal pages are great, but your painting is awesome! I agree with your husband, you should frame it!
    Have a great day.
