What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Weekend Art


Wednesdays are time to take a peek at workdesks around the world for those who join What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  And over here in this workdesk in Quezon City, Philippines (did you notice that I did some tidying up?), I am busy scanning the Artist Trading Cards and Altered Book pages that I made over the weekend.

Here is a closer view of the page from my Altered book "Words to Live by", which is about some of my favorite bible verses.  This page is a mixed media collage with a magazine picture of a "straight path"...


and turning the page, another collage with magazine cutouts of praying hands, a stairway and a heart that is perfect for the bible verse which tells us not to worry and ends with a promise about the peace of Christ...


More about those pages when they are finished.  Can you guess what bible verses the pages are about?

I got to do more than my usual weekend art because my family spent the weekend at the beach (I know, I know, that may sound weird to those of you who are having cold weather).  The sun can get really hot during the day so I set up a table with the art supplies I bring and spend the day crafting in the cool shade.  I did get to go to the shore early in the morning though.  Here is proof...

My 84 year old Dad's sailboat waiting to be sailed...


This is where I walk, searching for sea glass...


Some flowers along the path to the sea shore...



And you?  What's on your workdesk today?  To visit more desks from around the world, over to the Stamping Ground.  Happy WOYWW!

Your photographs are wonderful - it is hard to believe you have wonderful weather when it's still so cold here in the UK. It looks like a wonderful place where you live.

I love your journal pages, especially the one with the path, I love how you merge everything together.

Theresa said...

Especially love the "straight path" piece and stunning flowers Peggy! Happy WOYWW!

Susan Allan said...

I expect that the straight road is to signify that in life our path is far from straight, though we strive to keep on the straight and narrow. The photos are magnificent...lucky to live near the sea!!
