I thought I’d join in on this funny wednesday workdesk share, what’s on your workdesk wednesday, as I love watching other peoples workdesks. It makes me feel as though I am not the only one with a really messy workdesk and I get to see some workdesks to aspire to achieve, all nice and clean =)
My workdesk, which I share with my daughter, Chelsea, is always rather full, even though I clean up every evening. Well, almost every evening. I’m afraid I didn’t clean up last night and the page I just finished is still on the table. As you can see I tend to confiscate my daughters workspace when she’s off doing her homework.
I sit where the green silicone cookie sheet is and my daughter sits at the long end where all the paper is stacked. She has a pink cookie sheet, but it isn’t even visible anymore…
The journal page I have been working on has been giving me a little headache, because I tried a new technique, one that requires a layer of matt medium in between each layer. I think this is not for me, because I don’t like what happens to the colors of the layers when I do this, but I might have the wrong medium. So I will try this one more time when I get some other fluid matt medium. Who knows.
I also felt it flattened out my layers instead of enhancing them, but yeah, I might be doing it wrong.
On top of all that I incorporated a drawing made by my daughter, specially for me. I really didn’t want to touch that or cover it up, so I had to work around that.
Isn’t it sweet. I love it and I love that she made it for me and it isn’t even mothers day =). I really do love my girl!
The journal I’m working in here is actually one signature (with 5 watercolor folio’s) that will be bound into a bigger book, once I am done with it. There is one other page in it that I finished last monday when my mother and sister were visiting.
The flowers actually started as a blob of to much yellow paint on the page. I decided to just go with the flow. I kinda like how it turned out. Even with this being way out of my comfort zone.
I also started two other pages that are well within my confort zone. They are not yet finished.
I did the red one first and I love how it turned out. Love the birdy. I made it with a stamp I borrowed from my mother. It still needs something, but I don’t know what yet.
