Congratulations to our fabulous hostess, Julia, for looking after us for 300 Wednesdays, giving us such great hospitality. For those who have been in the darkest jungle, WOYWW stands for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. Julia will explain it far better, but it the day when folks from all over the world come together and show each other what we have on our desks. Messy desks are especially welcome as they give us more to look at.
My desk today is uncharacteristically tidy. I was ready to start a completely new project so I just swept the space clear, leaving out just what was needed. The main event is hidden under the paper, but you can see the Floral piece I did for a challenge/
The second shot shows more of what is going on, a brand new set of gouache paints all ready with brushes. This piece is for a challenge to celebrate the life of Jane Crosby, who died last year. The idea is for us to take inspiration from her crafting and to, hopefully, pass that inspiration on to others. With that in mind, I decided that I would face up to my demons which have been with me since I was told at school that I was rubbish at art. This is the first attempt at painting since that day. I have no idea what I am doing, no knowledge of the skills, so I am just trying things out. I will blog this project at a later date.
I had to show you this shot of my littlest dog, Gemma, who is totally disgusted with me today. As she was disgustingly and stinkily sick last night, she is being starved today and, as you can see, is taking a very dim view of it.
Julia does like us to be fairly brief on a Wednesday so I shall leave you with a teaser from my painting project - just one tiny corner. So now I will wish you all a very Happy 300th WOYWW and leave you to visit all the other desks on show at Julia's Stamping Ground. Come along and join in with us, show us your desk and visit as many as you can find time for. We would love you to leave comments as you go.
