WOYWW 229!!

Hello everyone!!  This week has flown AGAIN holy molly it is going to be Christmas tomorrow!!  I have not gotten much of a chance to let loose with art journaling this week but I do have a couple of photos to show you.  I cleaned up my art/craft area and even recycled things from the shed to use as shelves...it may not look pretty but it works :-)!  I even took my computer chair out as it was to big for the area and I just kept running into it....so I put the 2 stools in and I can shove them under the desk.  Seems to work well....at the moment :-).
This is my desk this week and the following photos are the neat and tidy lol!!


It feels good to be working in  a much more workable space and have a place to put things!
This next photo is a page that I finished on Monday and again using journaling as a way of letting out emotions.
I am demonstrating at my local craft store this Saturday as Michelle is having a product day and I am really looking forward to showing people how to use some of the wonderful products that I use...what fun hehehe!
I hope you all are having and will have a wonderful week, and now I am off to Julia's at Stamping Ground to have a look at the wonderful world of art/craft desks from around the world!!

WOW 228!!

Where has the time gone?????  Hi everyone, I have missed a couple of weeks...life it gets in the way! I haven't got a desk photo today, but it looks the same as the others desk photos that I have put up lol!  Nothing changes sometimes...but it is a happy mess :-).  Julia has gone away I see, and has posted early...good on her for getting away.  Pop on over to her site and join in the hop around the world peeking at all the crafty arty desks at Stamping Ground

I have some photos to show....and here they are... tadaaa...

This is what I taught the girls to do at the last art journal class using the Gelli Plate.  I saw a YouTube video on the Gelli Arts channel showing how you can make your own beautiful tape using the Gelli Plate.....so I did and thought wow I have to show the girls...and I did...and they thought it was great!!  So do I hehe.  Such great tips out there in the www!!!

These next 2 photos are pages that I have done over the last couple of weeks and this is what art journaling is all about....letting out the emotions that sometimes get to much for you.  I released a lot of negative and upsetting emotions and was able to handle things a lot better. To say that this form of art has helped me greatly over the last year...then the answer is a resounding YES!
This last photo is the canvas that I did for the kids holiday class, and we all had a great time!!  The kids can come up with some great ideas and colour combinations lol!

I hope you all have a wonderful week and hopefully I will see you again next week.  Now off to visit some desks....yep big cup of tea in hand :-).
