Good morning, good morning Deskers and other beautiful people! It’s Wednesday, and I have another desk-photo for you (and more… keep reading.) You probably think the atelier (and desk) will look organized; clean and decluttered because I told you I was going to do that… but nope, it’s still the same ol’ desk with the same ol’ stuff on it… The weather was just too nice last week to get into the cleaning mood – I rather spent my weekend outside. So, cleaning is postponed until further order. Ha!
Here’s the photo of my desk how it looked this morning
The space that really needs organizing is the window sill… especially those stands that hold all those papers/cards/scraps/notes. It may look pretty organized from a distance but viewed up close the clutter shows… see for yourself on this photo that I made of it the other day.
Before I move on to my latest art journal page I have a call for Christine “Bishopsmate”: Christine, you were the next on the list at the 6th woyww anniversary after me. Please leave a comment at this post so I can email you for your address. I want to send you my woyww-anniversary ATC.
It had been a while, but I made another page for The Documented Life Project with this prompt
May Theme: Touchy Feely (Texture)
Art Challenge: Stitching
Journal Prompt: “All that I’m after is life full of laughter.”
The journaling (in Dutch) free translated: “This phrase was the journaling prompt at DLP and at first I had no idea what to do with it. I’m not a smiley person and take life (much too) serious. But then I thought of this photo, taken a few years ago. I met Peggy, a woman I knew through blogging, and we connected right away. Boy, did we have fun together that afternoon! Seeing this photo again makes me think: I should definitely laugh more!”
(Oh, and Peggy is on the left, with the red glasses and yep, that’s me on the right 😉 )
The background of this page is made with Dylusions spray ink (postbox red, bubblegum pink & pure sunshine) adn a dotted stencil. The lines are stitched with the sewing machine. Handwritten journaling with black and white markers.
Here’s a detail of the stitched lines.
Thanks for visiting my blog, I really appreciate you all for hopping over and leaving comments. Hope you have a great day. Laugh some!
