What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday
Yay! I finally joined The Sketchbook Project.
Sketchbooks traveling around the country?
What a fabulous idea! 
I can see them with their little bags, standing in line at the airport,
taking off their shoes, going through the metal detector...
Or maybe they are going by car. I hope they can afford the gas!

I know I am late as usual. Everyone else probably
has their sketchbooks mostly filled by now.
My sketchbook has been shipped, 
and I am anxiously awaiting the mail lady.
Can't wait to get started!! 

Finished the first lesson in Tam's
free art class, Art, Heart and Healing,
a journal spread
Next is an altered board book  ~
I've always wanted to do one, and now that 
I have some motivation I'm going to try it!
Tam is such a great teacher and so inspiring!
Check her out at


Also on my desk this week is my  mermaid
from Suzi Blu's class. I admit I've been neglecting this.
Maybe because there are so many 
directions to go, I am stumped. beads, mica powder, 
stamps, modeling paste,
stencils, sea glass, fibers, 
fabric, tissue paper...
My head is spinning.
"Why don't you finish me?"

I'll work on her this week for sure!

 Finished! And sold!
I like her better with floaty hair.

  9. Oh you are working on such lovely stuff all at once..and I know what you mean about choices and ways to go- sometimes you just get a sort of sensory overload and have to stop awhile. You are the second WOYWWer I've visited today to be partaking of Art HEart and Healng - really looking forward to seeing your work unfold.

  14. I'm in the sketchbook project too. One month to go. I think your mermaid looks finished! She's so cute. Maybe you could add a jewel or two to her crown and call her done. Just popping in from Julia's blog. #121

  15. "Why won't you finish me?" LOL! She should come over to my house and keep my whining Magician company...Sheeesh! This unfinished art is almost as bad as having a newborn...Almost. I hear it crying in my sleep...but I rarely get out of bed for it :)
    I am excited to have you on the SBP...your art inspires me so much...sometimes I have to look away so I won't copy you!

  16. Do you watch Dancing with the Stars? On our UK version we also have Len and Bruno Torlionionioio. You know how Bruno always gushes and pouts when he likes someone. Well, I'm doing that now - Oohhhh Magggieeee - they are like a bowl of ripe fruit ready for plucking! Fab!

  17. Some beautiful artwork here. Thanks for sharing your workspace. Best wishes, Kym xxx (WOYWW No 24)
