It's another week of WOYWW!
(What's on Your Workspace Wednesday)
Every Wednesday we get to look into other artist's work areas and get a glimpse of their world.
WOYWW was created by Julia Dunnit over at
For more info go HERE.
WOYWW just celebrated it's 4th year.
This is my 4th week and I am hooked.
So hooked that it's 9pm here in California and I am just now posting. I don't want to miss a week.
What's on my workspace today?
A Beautiful card and ATC from Kay over at 505whimsygirl!
This card has an actual photo of the Black Mesa in New Mexico on the front.
Then this AWESOME, WONDERFUL ATC!!!
Can you see the textured background? Isn't it pretty?
Once the card & ATC were removed, here is my much neater, much more cleaned up and organized work area:
What a change from the past several weeks!
Once the painting and drying are done it's time to gather the pieces, figure out the layout, pin and sew. This is the part where I need room to spread out in a small area and a little more organization, I did say LITTLE, right?
Purple painted tote with pocket and strap pieces.
I found a safe and clean place for my flower-making materials.
It's a book bag one of my best friends made for me years ago.
I hung it on one of the two stand-up lamps behind my table.
The pic of the bag closed turned out yucky and it's too late to take another.
My BIG find this week was a bag of a "25 piece painting set"!
I kept the top of the bag in the jar to keep these brushes separate.
The reason this was so cool is because I am blowing through sponges and paint brushes and I don't want to use my "painting" paint brushes and needed some more less-expensive (aka: cheap) brushes for the color wash on the canvas fabric.
A clear plastic tub from the grocery deli holds all my metal findings & stuff like D-rings, barrettes, clips, pins, magnets, etc......
This wood box has a broken front latch. It works great to hold flower hair clips and headbands. There were a bunch more but I seem to keep giving them away :)
This green one is my favorite.
Well besides getting my area cleaned up and a little more organized, that's about all I have done this past week.
My bowl of painted flowers is over-flowing so I have plenty for the next four totes that are on my table ready to get finished. After that I have ideas for two new purses!!!! Can't wait to try them out. I'm sure I am re-inventing the wheel however I cannot use patterns. I do not even have a pattern for anything I do. I just eyeball it and cut it out. So it is always interesting when I see something or think of something I want to try!
Maybe I will have a new design next week, or a bigger pile of usable scraps. Either way it's a lot of fun and that's what matters.
And Kay, your the best! Thank you SO much!
Have a great WOYWW week!
