Good old Wednesdays! Another one has rolled around again before we had time to notice, and it’s time to show off “What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday” to a nosey world! Thanks to Julia for organising us all and doing her best to keep us under control. If you want to join the fun, click on the WOYWW link in my sidebar.
Well, my ARTHaven is certainly a lot tidier than it was last week, and you can see the desk again! I haven’t done a lot sitting at it this week as I took a dip health wise after doing all that shifting of stuff last week, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been creative – on the recliner instead.
I have started knitting my unravelled dress, and in the foreground of the picture you can see how far I’ve got. This is the bottom border complete, on the back. I’ve now got quite a lot of straight knitting to do in the tan coloured wool before doing some more pattern at the top. I don’t suppose I shall complete that in the coming week, but hope to make good progress.
The other thing I’ve found myself doing this week is a new craze – Zentangles! I have done a couple of blog posts if anyone is interested, and on my desk you can see my Art Journal that I’ve started, open at the latest page where I’ve done a series of small Zentangle designs in the form of a sampler for easy reference. Some of my finished pieces are on my other blog posts.
I’m trying to restrain myself as this is soooo addictive, and I’m likely to empty my pens before I can get some more!
At the back of the desk you can see my Choc-a-Block mixed media project and the tub of Polyfilla Once (US: Joint compound) – I’ve made absolutely no progress on this at all. Still mulling what to do, and don’t want to rush into it. You can also see one of my small Indian flowers that I cut with Sheba, my Cougar cutter, a few weeks ago.
The other thing I’ve done (starting yesterday) which isn’t on my desk, is that I’ve signed up to Deviant Art – a huge website/worldwide community of artists – anyone can upload their art in any shape or form, of any standard, to be shared with the community, and there is the opportunity to sell prints of your work through the site.
My album (not very full yet, but watch this space!) is here:
I hope you’ve all had a good week, full of creativity and fun, and I look forward to visiting as many desks as I can over the next few days. Happy WOYWW, everybody!
