What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Altered Book Page


Uh oh, for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, hosted by Julia over at Stamping Ground, I have joined the messy team this week.  I even had to open the drawer to put some papers since there wasn't enough desk!  Just when I thought I could stay on the neat team!

I did another page in my Altered Book and all I need to do to finish it is to put the verse.  I haven't decided how to do that.  Hand letter? Shall I print it out and paste it on?  See, I'm trying out some letters I cut out from a magazine. 

I gave this page a layer of wall putty, and did the drawing with colored pencils.  Then I pasted on some bible verses around the lamp, and covered them with some wall putty (maybe a little too much since you can hardly see them). Here's a close up...


Then I used watercolor, a bit of pen, and my brand new copic markers (love them!) to add more colors.  Ramona, from Create with Joy guessed the verse right for my AB's previous page.  Can you guess what verse I will put on this page?

And, you ask, if those were the materials you used, how come your desk is all a mess and filled with paper?  Well, I want to do more collaging in the next pages, but wow, I realized that I can't be neat when making a collage!  But then, I am so enjoying myself, I am sure you will excuse the mess.

What's on your workdesk?  It's a Wednesday, so come and show us!

Your desk looks so interesting and inspirational! Your journal page is great and I like the magazine lettering you've used, it really stands out as a lovely contrast to the page.

I love your pages. Your drawings are beautiful. I hope you get to grips with the lettering.
I would probably print it on paper I had used distress inks on or water coloured maybe. Hope to see the finished article.

Another late week...more great art! This week I'm guessing Psalm 119:105 - Thy word is a lamp unto thy feet and a light unto thy path.

Have a fabulous week!

You have such a way with painting. You never disappoint. Thanks for your sweet comments about Bleubeard. Sorry I'm so late getting here. You would think since I had most of my obligations out of the way, I would have freed up a bit more computer time. Unfortunately, what happened was, I was so far behind, I became overwhelmed. Will try to do better this week.
