Good morning lovely ones, another week gone by and it’s again Wednesday… this day of the week is all about W’s to me: first, there’s What’s On Your Work desk Wednesday (for more info about this fun bloghop, go here) and I added another W to this day – just for me so I won’t forget… it’s also the day I Water my plants. Yup, I need those kind of reminders 😉
My desk shows little activity this morning. I visited my mum and dad yesterday and my atelier stayed untouched… I just put the books I got from my parents on the desk when I got home – to find them there this morning.
Ages ago, I showed you this corner in my atelier: the guest bedrooms. I painted the back of that case lilac, remember? (I published a photo in September.) You had all kinds of ideas on what to do with that lilac back, but I never showed you what I did: I taped some fun prints and art pieces on it ánd a blank sheet of paper and pen-case containing markers – so guests can draw or write something when they feel like it.
Last week, I saw Kathy McCullen published some of her old collages on her Facebook page and I commented that I still have some prints of her work (she send me those back in 2010… wow, time flies!) including this one that is on the back of the case (top left.)
The black-n-white doodle page was made by my brother in 1985. The children’s drawing was made by me and when I look at the way I drew the house and the turtle (I think it’s a turtle but I may have meant to draw a hedgehog or a ladybug) I must have been around four years… And then there’s two more recent collage pieces. Last weekend, my son woke up seeing all this ’cause he came to visit us.
It was so good to have him around for a day – we laughed and talked and after dinner, him and I (or is that ‘me’? Oh, those English ‘rules’…) walked to the store to buy some potato chips which I forgot to buy earlier… Nout has this super-duper phone with a high-tech camera that he used to make a photo of the old town hall that is illuminated at night, and WOW, did that photo come out beautiful!
I found the challenge blog Sketch~N~Scrap that provided this sketch
I used this Sketch N Scrap #173 sketch/challenge to create this layout, using my son’s photo and a photo of the same building that I took in daylight some time ago.
We are in week 12 of this year already, and I am a bit behind in showing you my Chronicles pages… so here’s one spread from a couple of weeks ago
The Chronicles of Marit 2019 – Week 9
I’ll show the other weeks in another post soon, ’cause this blog post is long enough as it is.
Thanks for your visit and see you soon!
