Good morning all. Welcome to my desk.

As you can see my art director is making sure that I’m staying on track with my DLP projects. This is the beginning of Gelli Plate “a lot on my plate”.  I plan to work on this on the plane later today.

I also wanted to share the completed items from last week’s Lifebook class. I showed you the backgrounds for the 5/10/15 minute challenge and here are the completed works. The first one has a southwestern flair, the second one is so me, and the third is my dark primitive image. (I understand that some people can see a hedgehog here. Hey Marit)

Welcome to my WOYWW (What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday). Actually it is Tuesday evening, but I’ve been such a busy girl I just couldn’t wait.

State of my desk after working on this week’s Lifebook 2015 lesson today. Wow. I still have some details to finish off, after all It’s all about the little things. Really pleased with my face (mind you she looks rather hard core to me, would definitely be a survivor on TWD) and the floral stem. I had problems spraying through a stencil and it just looked wrong. So I will be putting together a 3D short fascinator to make me happy. I used some of my gelli plate deli sheets. And had such fun while Newton and Socrates cuddled for the entire time I was playing.

I was incredibly productive this weekend finishing off a number of WIP. Hope you enjoy them.

The first 3 are Documented Life Project from the last few weeks. An Arizona night sky inspiration, a collage of things I have made myself, and a salty water under the musical bridge watercolor.

The next one is from Lifebook. So glad this was our second lesson on feathers. I love drawing them.

Hello out there and welcome to April. No jokes, but lots of fun as we EXPLORE WOYWW (what’s on your workdesk wednesday).  To hop along around the globe check out the lovely Julia’s Stamping Ground site for lots of creativity.

A peak at my desk shows I’m definitely busy in a happy way:

  • Top 2 items are WIP one for Lifebook (light blue and green for feathers) and the other for DLP (dark moody Payne’s Gray and deep blue for focus Arizona landscape). Started with the backgrounds and planning on tackling them today or tomorrow
  • OWL: bottom left is the Wise Old Owl that I started last week (Lifebook). Really really happy with this. you might not be able to see all of the glitter, but it is definitely there. (close up below)
  • CREATE: from an art journaling workshop I attended on Saturday. Not my usual palette but that okay. Lots of layers including hemp for the stems. Still needs some doodling and the word timeless needs to be there. Second time using crackle paint, still need practice (close up below).

A gracious good morning to you all.

With Newton, my snoopy assistant at the ready, my desk is set to go.

  1. March is for HOPE with Joanne Sharpe’s Artfully Inspired Life. Melissa and Andrew both have St. Patty’s dayish birthdays. Just need to finish lettering.
  2. Two-two-two weeks in one for DLP. Surviving the elements “It’s raining cats and dogs” is now the focal point for doodles and marking for Borderline. Really pleased with how this is turning out.
  3. Box of stuff.  Okay how do I keep things tidy. I have a box, or two, or three,  where I put things at the end of each day. Partially because everything needs a home otherwise Newton is into it, chewing it, or sitting on it. He ended up with a blue glitter tail yesterday. Looks real innocent today, right?

WOW even though I have  not been participating since the beginning of the global tour of artful workdesks each Wednesday, this is a very impressive milestone. Congratulations to Julia Dunnit and the crowd at Stamping Ground.

So last week we were in Oregon and I really didn’t have too much time to do art. I did however get a chance to play with Golden High Flow Acrylics without Newton’s paws anywhere around. I experimented with different kinds of paper and had a wonderful time.

So today, this is my desk. I am working on the High 5 layers for the Documented Life Project weekly challenge. I have 4 layers, paint, markers, paper bag (with lovely words) and distress spray. Now what to do for the fifth layer. Still waiting for inspiration. What would you add as the next layer?
