What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday? That's the question a bunch of us ask each other every Wednesday. Well, since I did a bit of organizing last weekend, I regained control in the never ending challenge to have a workspace to work on. Ahh, how nice to have some space again! The WOYWW neat team would be proud of me!
I decided to organize my magazine clippings and assorted papers to make it easier for me to find what I need so I put them in two bins under the bed (which is right across my desk). The plan is to pull out the bins when I'm looking for just the right image or paper color for the collage I'm making. We'll see if it works.
On my desk is a work in progress, another Madonna and child ATC (which I owe someone). I made the sketch, covered it in wall putty (something you buy in a construction supply store which you can use as a gesso substitute), used some watercolor and copic markers to color in, and now will add shading with colored pencils...
For my Altered book on "Words to Live by", I finished a page with one of my favorite bible verses,
"Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added to you", Matthew 6:33
I wanted to try a different style so I decided to make a colorful collage with all sorts of layers and swirls and all sorts. I didn't know how it would turn out as I searched for images and pasted and painted, but then, Life is like that too, isn't it? You never know how it will turn out and it's full of layers and swirls and all sorts. Making this collage has reminded me that come what may, I will continue to try to live by these words and even now, I feel that I am living an amazingly blessed life and "all these things have been added to me."
