What's on Your Workspace Wednesday - 150
Wednesday again and maybe this week I will be lower than 50 this week as Julia, our hostess on this weekly magical mystery tour is publishing Mr Linky a little later this week to enable us larks to have a chance of getting in a bit earlier than the owls who should still be fast asleep with their heads tucked under their wings.
Speaking of owls, a favourite subject of mine, the one taking centre stage in the photo is on a journal page for the monthly swap I am in. I did finish both pages but didn't like one of them so that went in the bin and I have started the replacement. Only done the background so far with watercolours and acrylics and a few partial impressions with background stamps.
Bottom right is a simple card made by stitching a dragonfly die-cut on to handmade paper. All new to me this machining, partly because my sister has had my sewing machine on loan for over 5 years so I have to get used to it all over again - must figure out how I can do free-embroidery on it though.
Top left is a WIP of a fish (stamped), intended to be a trout but I got out the pencils before I checked the correct colours so it's a cross-breed at the moment.
Stars of the show in centre stage are two glorious pieces of art I received on Monday as a one-to-one swap with Judy of Judy's Fabrications, not only the fabric doll I was expecting but a beautiful fabric postcard, two of her painted doll faces and patterns to make some of my own, very generous and a lovely surprise.
I was trying to keep photos on this post down to the desktop but I cannot resist sharing this with you.
Gorgeous, aren't they?
Weather forecast is pretty poor for today but I don't care, lots more time for desk-hopping.
Happy Wednesday everyone.
