For anyone who would like to join in with 'What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday', go over to Julia's Stamping Ground for the linky thing etc.
I am showing my messy craft desk this week. It has been like this for a couple of days now - after I excitedly started last week's lesson with Life Book 2017 and then I got too busy to come back to it.
Week 5 was Abstract Art - and so far I have applied 2 layers of Derwent Inktense Blocks and one layer of Liquitex Acrylic Inks. We had to use our 'word for the year' - and mine is Joy, so I chose some lovely bright colours that remind me of summer. Acrylic paints come next, so this is a really interesting exercise in using mixed media layers.
Of course, I have been worrying that I am now behind again (I missed a lot of Week 1 too), and so many people are sharing wonderful images of their Week 6 pieces - but I am trying hard to push those thoughts away. There is no rush.
After getting a cold last week it went to my eyes, and I ended up with Conjunctivitis. This is clearing up now, but I still get sore eyes particularly at night. I am really hoping that I am close to full recovery now. It is our busiest time of year on the farm, with calving started - and hubby is working very long hours. This puts more pressure on me, with additional errands and the challenge of producing plates of food at strange hours of day/night (the warming drawer was the best thing we had put in our kitchen when we renovated!). Thankfully we have just booked a week in Spain in October (our first holiday abroad for a few years), so that gives me something to aim for.
