WOYWW #428

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/p/what-is-woyww.html  and all will be revealed!  

Midway through August - it's been a busy one so far! Last weekend we were at a family reunion at a nearby lake - lots of people, fun, food and wine! So much for my diet, but back on track now - only gained .2 lbs (and I ate everything!!)!

Here is my desk this morning. I always forget what I will find in the morning, so it's always a surprise! Oh, right, I was doing this!



I have been making my index cards into canvases, and this month I've put 3 of them in a local gallery, and I was surprised when one of them sold! See the red dot? SOLD!


So that was exciting! 

Here are two journal pages from last week: 

 This one was "working with black"
The one below was working with gel-medium through a stencil
  
We are still having a lot of rain - yesterday afternoon it was bright and sunny, I got my book and my wine, and went to sit on the front porch to read, and within 5 minutes this happened:



So Inky and I say so long for now! I will now go and peek at your desks!

WOYWW #427

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/p/what-is-woyww.html  and all will be revealed!  

Hi all! I missed last week's post because I was in Niagara Falls (Canada)! I attempted to do post from my i-Pad, but I gave up on that fairly quickly! Anyway, here is my desk this morning:





 It's starting to get messy again!  Also, now I'm working bigger (no more index cards!) so it's taking up more space.

Here was my desk last week! 



Except when it was raining - which was a LOT of the time!

I went to a place called Port Colborne to have lunch at the "Smokin' Buddah" (isn't that a great name?) with friends, and they have one of the FEW stamping/scrapbooking stores left in Ontario, so instead of giving the big internet online companies my money, I gave it to this little shop, and bought a few things to add to the few things I brought with me:



 
 I did a journal page every day (I had a lot of time!), using just the items I brought with me, and the few I bought. I joined a FB group started by Marjie Kemper, to go through an art book a month for 3 months. This month it's Dina Wakley's Art Journal Freedom book.

My journal pages from Niagara Falls:



Lunch at Smokin' Buddah!  


 
The figure is something I cut out of a magazine and painted black!

 

 And this is what I brought with me:


It all fit in this very cool Dollar Store make-up bag! The stencils and another set of stamps are in the blue bag.

So that's it for me! I had a great time, in spite of the rain. . .


And I found a new friend in Patrick, much bigger, and not as soft as Inky, but cuddly just the same!

Have a great week!
