WOYWW 160

Another week, another Wednesday, okay, Tuesday night in my case. Another peek, thanks to our hostess Julia, into the work desks of fellow crafters from around the world.

On my desk this evening is a lot that needs to be picked up. The new October Afternoon that came in a few days ago. My Thickers and easel from my shopping trip on Monday. And a new mixed media art journal and art journaling book. I know with the light it is hard to see, but the first page has been stencil with modeling paste through a heart stencil that I created on my Silhouette. I am hoping to add some color to it today. This will be my first attempt at an art journal and it is part of my trying new things attitude.


And finally, the layout that I finished tonight. I used the starting points from Shimelle's challenge last week.

Thanks for visiting today! Hope you are having a great week!

Dani

Lovely LO you have done - and art journalling will be easy for you - you obviously have the basics in that you do smashing layouts.

I like the sound of trying something new! Good for you...I've noticed that I'm not as adventurous as I used to be (was a real madcap rebel... :D ) but am getting back into the swing now that my kids are older. Come on Dani, we can break the mould together!!!
