It's Wednesday and that means a bit of blog-hopping around some fabulously talented artists and a sneaky peak at what they're up to!  Confused?  Just visit Julia at Stamping Ground and see what it's all about.

So, what am I up to today ...

I'm working at a different desk today, so not quite so cluttered!  I'm indoors (rather than out in my studio) waiting for a friend to arrive and doing some doodling/sketching/playing with Inktense pencils and a calligraphy pen.  Great fun and easy to pick up/put down as you don't need lots of stuff!  I'm really into 'faces' at the moment and sooooo looking forward to going to Dina Wakely's workshop at Art from the Heart at the weekend.

Thanks so much for visiting and all your lovely comments.  I will try and get around more blogs today.

Happy Woyww

PS  No Percy Pigs today!  And for those of you not in 'the know', they are a delicious strawberry flavoured sweet, shaped like a pig, from Marks & Spencers.  Very yummy and very addictive!


  1. It is so good to doodle, very relaxing.

  2. Great doodling there. I just got Dina Wakley's Freedon AJ book, I am SO green witht he thought you are going to one of her workshops. Happy WOYWW BJ#42 and thanks for visiting me.

  14. Loving your journal! Thanks for stopping by my desk! Tammmy #142

  15. Beautiful journal Liz, incredibly different styles and techniques on each page too! My mug is a tea mug, never drink coffee from it lol! I bought it at a National trust property years ago, it says Her Ladyship on the side and has a little crown on the inside that appears as you drink down! My husband has one with His Lordship on it too!

  16. love your faces Liz...I was looking all over for those Percy pigs!

  17. I love faces that 'come into the page' (so you see only half of it) and your zentangling page on the right is gorgeous. It is indeed relaxing to do isn't it? Have fun at Dina's class! Happy belated woyww, Marit #79

  18. Those pigs sound yummy!!
    Your pages are awesome. Your tangle/doodle on the right is great and the face is beautiful!! That is the one thing I've never been able to do. They always look odd. Have fun at your class!!

  19. Hi Liz,

    Oh, I'm so glad you told me what those pigs are! tee hee. They do sound yummy!

    Your face and the doodling look great. How fun to have a friend nearby that enjoys the same art. Have fun at the class!!

    Thank you for visiting me already. I'm slowly getting around to desks.

    Happy WOYWW

  20. Hi Liz,
    I'm just about to have coffee and could do with a Percy Pig! Ah well...
    Some simplicity is good isn't it? I like your sketching and sometimes take pencils and a pad and sit in the bush to draw whatever is in from of me.
    Had a quick look at the Woodwork Show post. Good demos. I love wood and tools of any kind. I reckon I have four workshops - the garage, the garden shed, the studio and the kitchen all equipped to the ears with tools. A life-long romance with tools.
    Miles of smiles, and thanks for visiting.
