It's Wednesday! I have missed taking part in WOYWW, school hols bring lovely grandsons to play at Nana's 3 times a week, one of the days being Wednesday. Today they are in a quiet mood, so it gives me a chance to play a long this week!
Haven't done a lot of arting the last few weeks, have to catch up on chores when the boys aren't here!
Desk looks pretty tidy 'til you look at the next photo!

And then you see all the 'stuff' around the little tidy area!
The canvas is something I started yesterday so hopefully I can work on that tomorrow!

This is the first page in my journal, it is much brighter than this in real life! Lots of blue and browns and texture! These are a few of my favourite things!

I really need a few lessons in photo shop!

These pages are spritzed with colorwash, cosmic shimmer and then sprayed with white to make it 'dreamy'.

Lots of orange and yellow sprays on this one I don't usually use these colours so it was a challenge for me! It was then stamped in rusty hinge all over with lots of different stamps!

The 'balloons' are world stamps on tissue, the baskets are hand drawn on tissue, the TH birds were around the wrong way so they are stamped on tissue too!

More spritzed pages, masked and stamped. The images are pieced together using various collage images.

All these pages are gessoed before sprays are added and are in various stages of completion.

If you want to see more desks join in the fun at Julia's place HERE.

Hope to see you next week too!

Love your desk - there is always so much to peer at. Great journal pages. I'm sure you enjoy having your grandchildren over even if you don't get much crafting done. Elizabeth x #70

The trouble with not having time to craft is that our desks end up being used for dumping on and such...still - at least your glasses are safe! I love the journal pages - especially the one misted with white - the dreamy look - works!

I'm having a quick trip round the WOYWWers before I start on my next batch of little African dresses. It's great to see what you're busy with this week.
