Goodmorning lovely ones, another Wednesday and time to show you what’s on my working desk – but before I come to that I want to point out this to my ‘foreign’ (non-Dutch) friends:
For the Quirky Dutch Summer blogseries 2019
***I AM LOOKING FOR CREATIVE GUEST ARTISTS/TEACHERS***
who want to write an inspiration-blogpost or tutorial.
There were quite some reactions on my call, but most came from Dutch crafters and since I want to offer a various ‘mix’ of guests, I would love some ‘foreign’ (non-Dutch) artists/crafters to submit. I can think of many of you “deskers” that would be able to offer an inspirational blogpost for this Summer series… come on my friends, don’t let me down!
Are you interested in being one of my guest-artist-teachers this Summer and write a blog post for the series? Send me an email this week! (This call closes on April 1.) Find all the info HERE
My desk saw a lot of activity last week but I cannot show all of it yet… I created something for a friend and it’s only just in the mail on it’s way to the USA so I keep the photo’s of “that” on hold. After I put the package in the mail yesterday, I started creating a Chronicles spread for week 12 and I made a photo while I was working on it,
which made me think…
I always clean up after creating, so the photo I take on Wednesday morning almost always shows a neat desk. I am used to taking a ‘morning photo’ but I might change that and take the photo for What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday on Tuesday-afternoon from now on… a photo taken in the midst of creating shows more interesting things for you to see… agree?
I love these alphabet stamps that you can see in my file but these stamps come with an issue: they’re very sticky and hard to pull of the plastic sheet. I tore a few already! You can see the little pieces laying on my desk (next to the scissors.) Those three small pieces, stuck together on the acrylic block, make an E…
As if I don’t have enough art journals to work in, I bound me another one last week! I blame Marie Mathlener for it – 🙂 Hi sweetie! – ’cause when she visited me a couple of weeks ago, she brought her journal and it had a canvas cover. I loved the look of that so much! I asked her where she got the canvas and her answer was a tip I couldn’t believe that I never thought of myself: “buy a cheap canvas in a dollar-store, cut the canvas from the frame, throw some paint on it ‘et voila’ there’s your cover.”
My first thought was to turn this into a ‘collage journal’ but I’m not sure… once I decide on a theme for this journal I might add a title to the cover.
And that’s it for today folks, but before I sign off I’d like to have big CHEER for my beloved, who deep-cleaned the bathroom while I was playing in my atelier.
Thanks for stopping by my blog, have a lovely week and don’t forget to check out the call for guest-bloggers… see ya!
