WOYWW #372

Welcome to WOYWW…the “What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday”  blog hop created by Julia at the StampingGround.  And we are back this week, as Julia has recouped from her surgery, and ready to take us back. Welcome back Julia! And a  Huge cheers for LLJ for doing such a great job keeping us together! 

I’ve been on a roll! I even got a chance last night to get in here and play a bit. If this is what it’s like to be retired and have time to play…then I really need to win the lottery!   So I was back in my journal station, and I’ve been bound and determined to get my gelato’s to do that cool drippage thing.  Gessoing the page is truly the key.  But despite being in my happy place, I just couldn’t seem to cozy up to those bright happy gelato colors.  So played around with the more neutral ones…and yay!  Gelatos can do grunge! Now I see why so many people have multiple journals…the drying time can kill you!

Also in the view (and it’s a bit skewed, as I almost forgot to take a picture, so I’m standing at the side of the table) the still unfinished dragonfly canvas…with the new white iridescent winged dragonfly…just needs to get attached.  The green winged one will find a home on something else. To the front left are a pile of new stencils (I so love Stencil Girl!) and some of the currently used ones.  I thought file folders would work for storing…but no…  The little draw is holding all my gelato/supplies.  There are some paints I still have to put away.  Ummm, there is a lot I have to put away…

And here is a close up of the grungy pages.

And continuing from last week, here is the finished journal…my first pages in my attempt to use favorite songs to inspire me.  (and you know; it will drive me crazy that this book has non-music pages…should I just buy a new one now? And I’m not remotely OCD…) Of course my handwriting sucks; even with a lettering template I don’t like it….guess that’s what computer/fonts are for.

So please now head back to Julia's to see whee to portal next.  Have a great week everyone!


  1. Hi Kim, love how vibrant your pages are. Not tried Gelatos yet, but am intrigued by Stencil Girl, I may just have to go have a look at that, Both dragonflies are gorgeous, maybe you have to do a green canvas now, lol. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #3xx

  2. Hello Kim. What a wonderfully busy desk there today - so much to look at. The dragonfly canvas is beautiful. Well done. Love the runs of colour on the first set of pages - and your music journal is SO vibrant. Fantastic. Know what you mean about music being on the page though.... Maybe as you go through the book a few treble clefs and staves could be added? Doesn't need to even be on every page - you know what the theme is, and that's the important part. Your work is lovely. well done.
    Take care. God bless.

  3. Wow! That is an amazing journal page! (the one with the song). Such vibrant colors! And I like the grungy one too. Can't wait to see what you do with that.
    Have a great week,

  4. I love the page with the butterflies on, and the background of the one with the drips is awesome too. I got some blue drips on my journal page this week :) Lea #50

  7. Walking on Sunshine is a great song - I love it too!! In fact, while I know you're happy with your grungy gelatos, I do love those bright pages best :-)

  8. Oh bliss. Your desk looks marvellous to me! the grungy gelato page is great, that dripping effect is lovely. I like that you didn't just stop when you realised the brights weren't working for you....8d have just gone on and made a muddy puddle probably! Love your stencil collection, Ive only got two! Loved seeing all you girls having fun with Darnell over at her blog.

  9. love your grungy page (and of course all your stash) Happy WOYWW from Vicky #34
