I think I skipped a few WOYWW‘s, I just haven’t been able to keep up with all that’s going on. Things are just not going to plan, as so often in life, but I think I’m getting it back together again. I just need to take it really slow and let go of the pressure.
So today I thought I would show you what my workdesk looks like when I’m like this…
You wouldn’t believe the mess I make…I’ve got too much on my mind and it shows.
You can see Beate’s Art Journal on my desk there, I’m working on the second spread (you can find the first one here). It’s not going as fast as I would like, but, to my defence, my mother came to visit me yesterday and we chatted the whole day away.
I’m hoping to finish it today and visit some of the other workdesks from around the world. Not all of them, because there are way to many. If you would like to join me you can find all those wonderfull artists at Julia’s blog the Stamping Ground, she’ll explain it all to you.
I’ll leave you with the picture I took today for the facebook group Midori Traveler’s Notebook resources, which was “My TN and a clock”.
This would be my work TN, which is actually a failed leather painting experiment. In which I painted the leather brown with a new kind of leather dye and then didn’t like the color. I sanded it, but that just scratched the leather, then painted it black. Didn’t like that either and tried to scrub off the black with “steel fix”.
Now I like it, it looks old and scruffy, black and brown. It looks like it lived a little. As does the watch. Which was my fathers watch. He died almost 10 years ago and I wear this every single day. I greet him when I put it on in the morning and wish him goodnight as I take it off when I go to bed. My way of keeping him close.
Thank you for visiting and I wish you all a wonderful week.
