Morning sweeties! Another Wednesday, and time for another round of artist’s desks – the ‘desk-tribe’ got together again on Julia’s blog to leave their links. Lovely Julia is our hostess for the 580th time, you can almost say we watched her growing up (or ‘aging’ *LOL*) If you’re curious to see what she, or the other ‘deskers’, are up to and how their desks look like, hop on over and click the link. Hey, you can also join and leave a link to your own desk photo – we come visit you then and cheer at you, we’re a bunch of sweet people like that you know!
There’s some creativity on my desk but I cannot show much as it’s meant to be sent to a friend who reads this blog… you can see a little ‘peek’ on the far left though…
As a guest designer, I made a scrapbooking layout for the new Dutch Dares Challenge. If you’re a little rusty and need a challenge to start creating, the latest Dutch Dares challenge, a sketch, might get you into the mood.
The sketch inspired me to finally scrap some photos from years ago… I didn’t feel like scrapping them for a long time ’cause they remind me of dark times – but I can now look back on it and smile, it wasn’t all bad back then you know.
Here’s a detail
Journaling says: “Meanderflat 2014-2018. Life in that gray, concrete apartment-block became more bearable when the Penny Waffle House opened its doors. Coffee, a chat and a creative studio made me forget the daily worries. Good work from Marlou Pluymaekers and Anda van Riet.”
Another spread in my Zeeuwse Ziel (‘Soul from Zeeland’) journal. Some of the pages in this hand-bound journal are extra large and can be fold. This is one of those pages… the right side is folded (and will therefor also be part of the next spread/image)
Here’s the complete, unfolded, spread.
I’m in love with this page and plan on doing more ‘diary-like’ writing and creating in my journals. I feel a change in my way of journaling coming… let’s see if it will last.
Thanks for stopping by today, have a lovely day. Stay safe, and when you’re a little down: cheer up, better times lay ahead! I have a scrapbook layout to prove it!
