I woke up to a grey sky this morning and right now (11 am) it still is a bit dark outside – I expect the rain to come down any minute now. In order to show you what is on my desk today, I had to use the flashlight with my camera. There are several projects on my desk today – as you can see “The Documented Life Project” is still on the desk too. I finished all prompts up till now and I show you the page I made with the 24 January prompt in this post (the pages made with the former prompts can be seen in this post.)
So, without further ado, here’s my workdesk (and I won’t say anything about ‘organised’ and ‘messy’ anymore 😉 )
(What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday or WOYWW is a weekly blogseries/hop hosted by Julia in the United Kingdom. A whole bunch of crafty people share photos of their desks every Wednesday – the list can be found on Julia’s blog.)
And here’s a better photo of the art journal page I made with last week’s prompt for The Documented Life Project
January Theme: The Blank Page and How to Face It!
Art Challenge: Writing
Journal Prompt: Words with Friends
The background is a gelatin-monoprint (I had myself a ‘mono printing-session’ a while ago so that I have a large stack of backgrounds waiting to be used.) I cut out three silhouettes from random magazine pages, glued them on to the background and outlined them with a marker. I used watersoluble crayons to create shadow. I darkened the edges of the paper also as the page looked a bit pale. (I rubbed the crayon with a wet finger to blend.) For the ‘writing’ part of the prompt I wrote my thoughts about friendship around the circles that were in the background.
Thanks for visiting today.
Oh, and if you are curious to read the review of the Art Journaling book that is on my desk: I post it next Friday. See you then.
