I'm back from Italy and this is what's on my desk today ... inspired by this blog, I've been planning to start an art journal for some time. Something is going on in my life which got me starting work on it, because there was something I really wanted to say. I've used this cover that I made some time ago to hold loose leaf water-colour papers, which is a sewn project of fabric around pelmet stiffener.
I've admired Kate's work for some time, and hope my page is only inspired by and not copied from her ideas. Working on watercolour paper I coloured it with Distress Inks and then added some spray inks, collage items, the heading, and the stamped Madonna. The pages are only 4 1/2 by 6" so its a relatively small space to work in.
This is the finished page - a combination 0f doodling, collage and stamping - all the elements I love. It's very personal, but I guess that's how it should be ... I wouldn't share it if I didn't want to.
If you want to see other (even more interesting) desks, which are boldly displayed every Wednesday, get on over to the WOYWW Queen Julia to find out more ...
