Well, it's that time again!  "What's On Your Workspace Wednesday" and my apologies for my absence to all fellow-woywwers.  It's been a busy time with son's exams and leaving prep school ready for the move to senior school!  He's been there 9 years so it's quite momentous and emotional! Added to all sorts of other home stuff,  I'm not even sure I registered June at all!

Anyway, I'm back with my messy desk ... as usual!

Right, let's get the guilty pleasure out of the way first ... I know you spotted them!  A couple of tubs of M&S yummies ... not all for me you understand ... they were left over from a class *cough* !

The panel in the bottom left is one of a few that I'm working on.  I've painted a blended background and shaded some boxes which I'm going to fill with a range of images and 'stuff'' (which really means I don't know yet!).  I'm quite excited about how it's going to turn out though.

There's also an assortment of journals, sketchbooks and pens, pencils, a huge pencil sharpener and the usual variety of paints and mediums.  I've become quite hooked on journalling and doodling courtesy of Joanne Sharpe amongst others, so constantly trying to find time to fit it all in!  Story of our lives eh?

The main thing about this messy 'desk' which is really 2 tables joined together, is that it is where my Thursday morning class do their 'thing' so I now need to get out there and tidy it up!  I tend to spread myself out somewhat : /

Anyway, huge thanks to Julia over at The Stamping Ground for hosting this wonderful event and hope you all have a great week.

Until next time ... happy painting ...

  13. Hi, Liz, thanks for popping over to my blog for a visit. Your panel looks intriguing, with the little frames just waiting to be filled. I've found myself drawn to Zentangle/doodling/sketching lately. I'm not currently skilled at drawing, but I have pens/pencils/sketchbook, so I'm going to try to find time for it when I can. I definitely need more hours in the day! Happy summer and happy WOYWW. ~ Laura #114
