2017 has not been the creative and fun time I hoped it to be when I signed up for Lifebook 2017 (link in my sidebar, if you want to join in with a whole year of fabulous mixed media lessons). Flu struck our household as the year ended, and we have both been really ill. Only today (Day 13 for me of symptoms) have I felt able to sit down and do some crafting.
Therefore, my desk shot today shows the Warm Up piece for Week One of Life Book (it will be a while before I catch up). Well, the first 4 layers are on the paper and now I wait for the rather thick gesso to dry (my heat gun helped, but in the end I decided to step away and get some other stuff done whilst it dries completely).
You can also see my Derwent Inktense Blocks, water pot, brushes etc.
It is wonderful to feel that I am achieving something with my day - rather than just the bare minimum of caring for myself/hubby and animals.
Perhaps Wednesday 11th January can be my own personal New Year!!
If anyone else is suffering with one of these horrible viruses, get well soon. I know it will be a while before I am back to 'normal'. Flu is definitely not just a bad cold - and my body has been working hard to fight it.
