WOYWW 385 - still no new stuff

at the risk of setting a bit of a habit, there is no new 'stuff' on my desk today for What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday - week 385.  You can find the link up at Julia's
Not even any new art, either!  Well, not really

 because these atcs were posted off for a swap earlier in the week...






 so the floor looks like this today....
two pages in the journal painted (kind of) ready for "something" to happen to them soon...

the page on the left is a mop up using some Pebeo irredescent paint and dry brushed with gesso to knock it back just a little.  It goes a long way that paint, I obviously poured out way too much to get a full page covered with it!  the pink on the left is Bougainvillea Fresco paint, again left over from something or other....
maybe by next week I'll have done something with them to show you!

so, not much to show here, I'm off to check some more interesting desks at the Stamping Ground!

Ha, those monster atcs made me laugh! I like the colour of that left hand page, the blue is beautiful - maybe you won't pour out quite as much next time!

Hi Helen. Fun ATCs there. Hope the recipients enjoyed them too. Sounded like you all had loads of fun at Port Sunlight a week ago. Glad you all enjoyed it.
Take care. God bless.

Those little creature are very cute - right up my alley! Long time no see :) Happy to be back and anxious to get around the desks. With luck I will manage the crop in November and can see those little fellows IRL.

hugs and Happy WOYWW!

Happy WOYWW and congrats on the No.1 spot (I was proud to get in the top 10 last week!). Loving those ATCs - and perhaps I should use journal pages to mop up spare paint, rather than my increasing pile of scrap paper! Ali x #27

Ha! I had some mop up pages sitting on my desk this morning too (before I moved them across the room to make space for other projects.) Here's hoping you get to playing on them before too long!

Love the colors in your ATCs... :) The blue monster is super cute. Can't wait to see progress on your journal pages! I just love the word bougainvillea... flower names are always so fun to me. Have a great week! Heather (waywardgypsy) #50? #51?

craftytrog said...

Shame on you, no new stuff?!! Love those ATCs!

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

Love those monsters. Great colours on your journal pages. The baby wipes work really well and at 50p for 72 wipes you can't go wrong. I can get about 8-12 good images from one before it starts to fade.

RosA said...

Hi Helen
I also have no problem making journal backgrounds. It's what happens then that can be a challenge :) Hope you have some inspiration soon :) (Me too.)
Have a good week.

CraftygasheadZo said...

Well I'm shocked no new stuff!! Ha ha. I always love the desk shot no matter what's on it. Take care Zo xx 29

Shoshi said...

Great ATCs Helen and some nice journal pages too. Thanks for your visit and your lovely comment - I continue to feel really rough so I've decided to go and see the doctor and see what they say as I'm fed up with this!! So glad you like my digital efforts. Like you, I was always slightly sniffy about digital art but now I realise that there's a lot more to it, and it takes just as much creativity as the "real" variety - you are just using different tools.

LisaDV said...

Wonderful ATCs. I too use leftover paints for bases in my AJ pages. I'm sure you will have them filled in no time. Happy WOYWW week! LisaDV #35

Marit said...

The ATC's are cute, love that little monster! I, too, always pour too much paint on my palette... oh well, it's good for starting a new page/project. I hope you had the time and 'mojo' for that. Have a lovely Sunday, love from Holland, Marit #24

Morti said...

Ooh, Monsters! High time we did a monster ATC swap on here. And an Xmas one for the next WOYWW meet up...

Thanks for stopping by...

Fabulous little monster ATCs, and I love that you always have so much on the go journalling-wise. I'm sure it won't be long before something happens on those pages.
