WOYWW Time!

I like being among people who aren't afraid to share their messes!  It's what makes Wednesday so much fun....I show you my messy worktable if you show me yours!  It's time to join Julie and company at What's On Your Worktable Wednesday because I know I can sure make one heck of a mess when I'm working/playing in my studio. 

This week has been a productive one for me......I wish they could all be! So here is the mess......................

IMG_0502 And this is the beginning of one project......

IMG_0492IMG_0497 This is the finished journal page and some close-ups..........

IMG_0496 IMG_0495Well, that was fun......and I hope you can read it.  It says "age is just a number so pick one and stick with it"! Certainly not my original message BUT it is my motto, 'cause I'm 49 ya' know....that's a number I like!!  Well, I like 39 better but I don't want to stretch it too far, hehe!

After the journal pages, I moved on to this........

IMG_0500 This was inspired by the journal page I shared HERE last week.  I tried it again, this time on an 8 x 10" canvas with acrylic paints, sprays, stencil and stamps.

And then there is this........what do you think?  Like it this way.........IMG_0505OR with the addition of the word hope, which relates to the words written around the silhouette?

IMG_0507It might be the wings are too hooky!  It's O.K., really, let me know what you think.  I need to add something to the upper right hand corner, too.  OH MY, the self criticism never ends!

I'm in my stencil and spray paint phase and is that ever fun!

Let's go see what others have on the work tables today.

omigod. I totally spraypainted stencils tonight too! - but my surface choice was questionably legal.

oneoff said...

Zingy and gorgeous! I love the way you've used the words around the silhouette, and the depth on the tree image. Those pages make me want to keep going back to look at more of the detail.

great journalling, am with you on the number thing, being the other side of 50 now (how does that happen???!)

Very nice workspace. I love your journal pages and I think with or without it looks good. I don't know about the wings. I am not a wingy...girl. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #78

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh messy and inspiring - totally great space! I prefer the journal page with out the 'hope' word...so it draws the viewer in.... but I know nothing about journals, so don't count on this as a skill, it's just an opinion! Bernie (oneoff)sums up my other opinions beautifully!

Marilyn Rock said...

This is all a true sign of creativity! Love your art!

Wow...love the silhouette....I think I prefer the first one...wonderful work and what a treat to find you!

Angie said...

Wow your pages are inspiring ...love them ...once I have my own space again I must have a dabble. As for age ..... ever since I accepted my real age and grew up ...when I was 50 ...I found I have grown older quicker and am more like 70 than my actual 64 ...Moral ....stay 49 for ever.

Sam said...

Ooo I like! Not brave enough to try this myself and always admire those who do!

Carola Bartz said...

Oh yeah, self criticism, don't we all know that. I think I like the page without the word "hope" better. I absolutely love your journaling page, great colors. The same with the canvas - all shows great creativity.

Greetings from Southern California

I added myself to follow your blog.
I invite you to visit my blog and become a follower if you want too.

God bless you and have a nice day :-)

Carolyn Phillips said...

I think it probably looks better without the word hope in the way you have it there, but I think adding the word would be right in some way...not sure how it would be if you added it directly to the page, maybe in black for good contrast in a similar place? (however that is harder to try cos you can't remove it as easy!)

Love you messy workspace, so inspiring.
