WOYWW 367 Messy Desk!!

For once, my WOYWW photo is of a messy desk! I have been keeping it *really* tidy but not this week!

So I am nearly finished a journal page that I started a while ago but couldn’t decide what to do with it. Continuing with what seems to be a quirky phase, I used some lovely Paper Artsy stamps by Darcy for some quirky flowers and bugs, one of JoFY’s stamps for the hanging flowers, and some Stampotique birds.  The background was painted with a baby wipe and some Dylusions paints to start with and then I toned it down slightly with a script stamp and some dots from the ‘unknown’ box. The stamped images are being coloured with polychromos.

Also in the photo is a nearly finished “C” – this is a decoupatched initial that has been on my windowsill for absolutely ages, Lewis painted the 2nd mannequin when he came over recently (ulterior motive – he got to take the paints away with him as I wasn’t fussed on them!) so I thought I’d better do some work on it….nearly finished, it got some pastes put through stencils on it today. Just got to attach the mannequins now and probably some “metal bits” to finish off.

That’s me for this week’s WOYWW – short and sweet – pop over to our stand-in leader Jan who’s doing a great job whilst Julia is convalescing. Hoping Julia is feeling better and is well on the mend. And hugs to Jan at this very sad time for her. XXX

Journal page got finished after I wrote this…….colouring done and addition of the saying from Emma Godfrey’s stamps….

    I really like the whimsical page you’ve created, with those sweet little birds. I smiled when I read what you wrote about Lewis, because it sounded like something my girls would do when they come and visit too. Happy WOYWW!
