Getting back into the habit of sharing my mucky desk/table each week along with all the other WOYWWyers courtesy of Julia over at the Stamping Ground. Not as much to see this week though.
As I'm back in the crafting groove I dug out my art journal and had a play yesterday. I subscribe to Donna Downey's YouTube Inspiration Wednesdays and this week she used acrylic paint and swirled the colours with her finger. Sounded good to me, nothing like getting messy with pain so out came the cheap acrylics for a little practice.
Of course it doesn't look anything like hers but I the swirly bits on the right reminded me of roses so I added a few stems. The left hand page was a complete disaster so I smoothed the paint off and made some patterns by dipping a flat brush in two colours of paint and twirling it round. Just playing but having fun as well and it's good to play with no intention of making anything or going anywhere in particular.
The box on the left of my desk has just had a coat of white gesso while I decide what to do with it- a shadow box that I want to do for my niece's birthday. Whatever I do will involve paint, inks, papers and possibly flowers, that's if I didn't clear them all out in my last big tidy. (How come whenever you decide to tidy and throw out something that has been taking up houseroom for years you suddenly have a 'good idea' and regret throwing it away?)
Anyway, it is good to be back for the second week on the trot. Happy Wednesday blogging buddies.
Just realised this is the second week my desk has hosted a cup of unappetising liquid. Looks like tea this week but it is my brush washing cup - last week looked like yuk (which it was ha ha).
