Welcome to the “What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday” blog hop hosted by the lovely Julia at The Stamping Ground, where we open our craft rooms up to have you peak at our desks.
The last 6 weeks have gone by in a blur, and while I’ve been really busy crafting, I’ve been too busy to get my photos on the computer to post…but because of a snow day yesterday, I was able to do both!
While I’ve been catching up on my card making, my main focus has been on the Wanderlust 2017 art course. This past week’s lesson was on “Intuitive Painting”. Hmmmm, anything that requires that much practice can’t possibly be called intuitive….just sayin’. And while I didn’t like my piece at first, it sorta grew on me yesterday, after I added some text from the poem on the Moody Blues “Day’s of Future Past” album. Probably the only poem I know by memory. So then I decided, and again, for practice, to try another piece. Epic fail. But what you see are the pages you create for the cut-out parts. And those are kinda fun. Distress Paints and Liquitex Inks lend themselves brilliantly to showing motion. So they are sprawled on my journaling desk, awaiting my next foray into the craft studio. The brushes are clean...the mug and water holder--or what ever you call your dirty brush water thingy--did get carried out as I was leaving...and the M & M's...empty...
Oh, and here is the first piece. And while it still looks like one hot mess, it has grown on me!
