Oh my WOYWW 233!

Hi everyone!!  I have been MIA for a couple of weeks, nothing wrong...just life rushing at a 100 miles an hour lol :-).  I hope that all of you are well and have had a great couple of weeks and have had fun Christmas shopping!!  I have only a few things and that is so unlike me as I usually have things well in hand by now....I will get a move on in the next couple of weeks...I hope!
Here is my desk for this week...
I am working on a canvas and using lots of different paints, inks, watercolours, Gelatos etc and loving how it is coming together.  I have to say that I am having a love affair with moulding so good for adding texture :-).
Next are a few pictures of what I have been up to over the last couple of weeks...

The first photo is a mixed media canvas, and the next an art journal page that I decided to be a bit different with and the next is a background that I haven't put any words on yet.  For some reason all I can come up with when I look at this page is...calm calm got to stay calm lol.  The next photo is using some left over acrylic paint that I scraped across the 2 pages and Dylusions Inks and this is what came out of it....interesting!!
Leaving you with a piccy of what I have just bought to feed my addiction hehehe.  Have a wonderful week and now I am off to Julia's blog Stamping Ground to go and visit some of you wonderful crafty artists :-).

  9. Wow! You have been one very busy lady. I love that first picture - I can just imagine the light shining into that window. Thanks for your visit - yes, that landing makes a great space to work - it's over 18feet long - so a lovely space for me to fill to capacity!!

  10. Nice to see you and your works! Feeding your addiction..ah..I get need to do that before Christmas shopping or how will you stay sane!! I'm impressed that you say you're working on that canvas - your desk is so tidy! I see calm in the third piece too...maybe meditation as it has an influence of oriental about it to me. Love the bargello'd page!

  11. Lovely to see so many different pages etc on your desk this week - a real diversity of styles.
    Hugs and thanks for visiting me earlier - Neet 8 xx

  13. I missed a couple of weeks also and missed you on my return last week Janene, not sure if I will get a post up for WoYww this week, but wanted to stop by and say hi. Your art work is all so lovely and it looks like you have been having lots of mixed media fun. Loving all your new stash, like you I was naughty this past week too and spent quite a bit on new stencils and the like to play. Looking forward to see what you get up to with your Gelatos and new stash, Have a great week!! Danie

  14. Goodness but I love that first canvas you showed...gorgeous colours and textures. Yum!!
    Hugs, LLJ 41 xx

  15. Hi Janene thanks for swinging by earlier and for the Thanksgiving wishes. Love the first's gorgeous. I also like using Gelatos too..I like that you managed to do some Christmas shopping for yourself...we are all the same right, let's feed our addiction first :) Cx #25

  16. Lovely pages and art there Janene, looks like you've been really busy. I've seen a number of people using moulding paste for texture, it really looks great. Hope you get caught up with the shopping and stuff, I really need to think about getting my head around Christmas, presents, baking etc!

  17. Hi there, thanks for stopping by earlier.
    What wonderful works of art you have created. I too love modeling paste, easy to get texture and dries pretty fast.

  18. Absolutely gorgeous work on your mixed canvas and art journal! What fun. Thank you for sharing that story about your cuttlebug--it makes all the work you do with it so special. I don't have experience with all the various diecut machines--I just kept seeing the Big Shot on different websites and made up my mind I had to have one! Thanks for your sweet visit. Happy WOYWW!

  19. So much to look at, going to have to do a triple take!

  21. I want to get a better view of that window you are painting! That looks so pretty. And those stencils in the last photo - love them! I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets side tracked by life. LOL And thank you for stopping by my blog earlier. :-) April #17

  22. Janene, side tracked by life........what a statement! I think we all have that from time to time, and sometimes for a long time! Thank goodness we have a craft room/studio to retreat to! Beautiful colors...I love that blue green you are using.

    Hugs, Robin #76

  23. Am loving your work! The colors, the "mixed" of it all. WOYWW is so fun - you just never know what your will find. So glad to find you! Happy week ahead. Sara j #90

  24. Hi Janene, love the canvas, and the journal is interesting. It is amazing what happens when we go with the flow! Your purchases are exciting, I love that large stencil, will have to try find one now!

  25. Hi Janene,

    You've been quite busy! I know what you mean about life going at 100 mph! I feel the same way; haven't been a regular for a while now. Always striving to change that though!

    Thank you for visiting me already. I'm slowly making it around.

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (6)
