WOYWW - Whats on your Workdesk Wednesday

Oh dear, that is a bit of a scary sight, right?  For my very first 'WOYWW' too, should have made an effort, but then that would not really be me would it?  So, here you have it warts and all this is what is on my work desk today - I have made a brand new art journal, its previous life was a 'photoshop' magazine, I did try to find a tutorial for this yesterday, but gave up and just 'went for it'.  I decided yesterday I was putting too much pressure on myself with the faces and needed some playtime to focus better. This coincided with a new venture from my friend Zoe at Top Floor Treasure here http://www.topfloortreasures.com/blog/ who has also taught me now how to do a 'blog hop' so I can join her new venture (read about it on her blog).

I often wondered what a blog hop was, and what WOYWW was all about - I now have over 100 blog entries to read to see if anyone else is as messy as me.  Oh, here is my other desk with the drawing board, an even scarier sight..
You can find out more about WOYWW on this link http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/p/what-is-woyww.html

Before typing up etc, I did finish the front cover of my new art journal - I hope to join in with  Zoe's new venture this week in my new journal, as long as the time scale is good - I dont have enough time for art just now, still got the wayward new rescue dog to train, which is not an easy task and the inlaws are visiting this weekend, which looses me all of Saturday and Friday to clean up for their arrival.

Finishing up with my finished cover of my new journal..
Now I go try join in with a 'blog hop' over at WOYWW http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/p/what-is-woyww.html

  7. Oh my, how lovely of you all to comment and so nice too. Think I will like it at WOYWW, I couldn't possibly comment on all 118 other blogs though, but I have read them all, and many of you are far neater than I.

    My thanks again to Zoe, for teaching me about a blog hot and showing me WOYWW.

  10. Hi Lynda! Thanks for visiting me earlier and a BIG Welcome to WOYWW. This is my 4th or 5th week (I'd have to go back and count, where did my memory go?). I love the upcycled art journal and the bright, fun colors. Zoe's blog hop sounds interesting. I'll have to pop over later to read about that. Oh and I really like the face. Hope you enjoy WOYWW!!!!

  11. Hi Lynda, great to have you visit me and thanks for the comments, I'm loving your art journal and the lovely colours you used and I think your faces are really good. They must be one of the hardest things to draw and get all the proportions correct. Good luck with the training of your rescue dog and enjoy your family get together this weekend.
    Happy art making
    Hugs Lottie #10

  13. Hi Lynda, Happy WOYWW (and welcome to WOYWW and blogland), and thanks for visiting me.

    Yes I had eaten the strawberry before I posted the pictures, and it was very juicy and tasted lovely, could have been a bit sweeter but the ants were eyeing it up too so I picked it. There are about 4 more nearly ready, I am leaving them a little longer to go redder and hope the ants don't beat me to it!

    Great journal, and I think the desk is better "warts and all" to get an idea of what is really going on and sometimes to reassure everyone else that they are normal!

    It would be a really good idea for you to put your WOYWW number so it is easier to find you when visiting so we can find you easier(but not íf you are returning a visit).
