WOYWW 189

 

Well, I dare say it's THAT time of week in Blogland, YEP! it's time for Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday. So tonight (Tuesday in US) I snapped a picture of Betsy before turning out the lights, turning off the PC and turning in early to watch a little TV.
From right to left there is a tin full of die cuts I mess about making yesterday and still haven't found a good home for them. Some clear heart stamps, a container with misc pen and pencils, a container with all my tangle pens, wire storage for misc. items, a ribbon rosette, water pot, a flower vase with glues turned up side down, two cards, one I posted this morning one to post tomorrow. Cell and house phone in wire basket, an old sketch pad I found while digging around and on top of that are a few templates for tangling and in the center is my art journal I was playing with this evening, not sure if I'm finished with it or not, need to be away from it for awhile then come back and take a look. So where do you join us for this weekly gala?
Here is a close up of the journal, not a lot of planning before starting it.  The background is actually colored Gesso with some thin red acrylic paint brushed across it.  The two main hearts were made with a stencil and modeling paste then painted, lots of little heart stamps.  Guess I'll wait until the morning to decided on it.
Well blogger friends time for a quick shower, some medicine ( yep still taking stuff for the cough that keeps lingering) and my warm jammers.  As my DH would sing: "Turn out the light, the party's over" Ya, I know, but he thinks it's funny............................

  1. Very pretty! It makes me want to go work in my art journal :) I have a hard time knowing when a page is finished too...and I end up overworking them!

  6. Nice desk Krisha I love the bright colors on the journal pages. I love my carousel and only recently added the clip it thing to it cause I used the center for my pencils also. I put the pencils in the deeper outside cups and left the more pricey ones (inktense and metallics) in their tins in a drawer. Thanks for popping by my desk and leaving a comment! It means a lot to me! Have a great week. Vickie #43

  12. Hi Krisha, thanks for your lovely comments about my metal look ATC. I buy rub & buff from art supply stores. In some countries it is called gilding wax. Some people use black cardstock then stamp the image with versamark ink add clear embossing powder and the heat. I then rub lightly with the gilding wax. Try not to be heavy handed if you only want the wax to go on the stamped image otherwise it will cover all the cardstock. Hope this helps.

  14. Hi Krisha, thanks for stopping by. Looks like you've been playing with your texture paste as well - was that a Mr Huey mask you used? It looks very similar to my one! Happy (belated) WOYWW and you get my vote for the snuggly PJs!! Cindy #74

  20. Busy desk, with lots of pretty cards and a beautiful art journal front and center. I also love the love note from Hannah hanging front and center!

    Thank you so much, Krisha, for the anniversary wishes! I'm sorry I'm so late getting back to you. I took some time off the computer to celebrate with Mister and now I'm back to making my way 'round.
