WOYWW #460

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!

It is a foggy, miserable day today in southern Ontario! But at least the temperature is above zero! Almost all the snow is gone, I can still see some  in the neighbors yard. I have yet to convince hubby to take down the Christmas display yet, hopefully this weekend!

I have done nothing in my stamping room this week, so my desk looks exactly the same as last week. But I did finish my watercolour:



Not too bad for a first try! Hopefully it will get better!

I got a neat Kodak Mini-Printer for Christmas, kind of an external instant camera, I can print photos right from my phone. I was taking a watercolour journaling class, and the teacher recommended this printer, and said it was great for "extending a photo" by drawing and watercolouring past the restrictions of the photo. So I tried it, extending a photo of Inky that I had on my phone:

 I still have to add the watercolour part, but it's a fun idea!
So that's it for me, no desk today, but at least I did something

Here's Inky with her favourite fishy toy. We have a routine, while I'm getting dressed in the morning, she's on her back on the bed, waiting for me to toss her the fishy! 


Have a great week, and HAPPY EASTER!

I hadn't heard of those photo printers before but what a great idea to use it in that way, extending the picture - it's a good starting point! I like your watercolouring, it's a medium I like the look of but have never had much success.

Interesting photo printer though I'm not sure I can get to grips with anymore new technology just yet. I've yet to work out how to get print photos from my mobile on the Canon Selphy I got two Christmases ago! Your watercolouring picture is lovely. Inky has got you well trained. Hope you have a wonderful week. Elizabeth x #28

I think that printer is a very good idea. My printer is supposed to accept my camera but I think Canon is in a different universe! I just love Inky she a Ms Kitty would have great fun playing together.

I wanted one of those printers for Christmas/Birthday/Anything???? But nobody took me up on it! Mine wasn't the Kodak one but very similar. Just for printing things out and putting them in my journal but that's a great idea for extending photos - like it and now need to either splash out or hint more for .... how many months????
Hugs to you and Inky, Neet 2 xxx

Hya - re the Sprocket (remembered what its name was) yes, I had it on my wish list on Amazon!! They both know of it too. Guess son could not afford it but other half could.

Hi Linda, thanks for your visit and meow to Inky. She looks most content with her fishy. That printer looks a most useful gadget. I like the idea of extending a photo! Happy belated WOYWW Sarah #7

I might have to google that printer. I love your extended illustration. My friend who is in the second year of the course I'm doing did a similar technique with a photo drawing. Instead of extending the photo she cut pieces out from the photo so - cut out the face and maybe the hands or a cup and then drew them in so it was a mixture of photography and illustration that way. I'm not explaining it very well but it was very effective and I can ask her if I can show you if you are interested in experimenting with the technique?

Have a good week,

Carmen x #26

Hi Linda! Just catching up - lovely watercolour portrait - the lady on the left (you?) reminds me of Meryl Streep! Great idea to extend photos into paintings - will keep that in mind. Oreo's got a little toy like that too - it's a banana filled with catnip. He always goes berserk after playing with it, high on catnip LOL! Happy Easter! zsuzsa #11
