WOYWW

Hello and Welcome to my workdesk.


This week brings a watercolor in progress. It's an alien I am hoping to use in a Christmas card. Yup, I said Christmas card. Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Card Challenge wants us to use a creature on our card this week. My mind immediately went to aliens. (Hmmm, wonder what that means!?!?!?!) 

I got this calendar for Christmas and haven't started the "lessons" yet. It's just how things work with me. You would think that I would be a good "student" and complete my assignments everyday. Sheesh, I couldn't even type that without busting up laughing. But, nope, I HAVE opened the box. I'll start maybe tonight.

I love having more space now that I have purged some. And am looking forward to MORE space when the purge is complete. (Which should be sometime in the next month or so.)

You can see more workdesks HERE.

Great to see someone else watercolouring - everyone seems to have gone down the Promarker route leaving me behind - and still happy dabbling and mixing colours I should add! Love the alien :) Di x

I think the idea of an alien is great and I so can't wait to see the finished product - will it say - take me to your stocking, earthling or your fruitcake is a crime against the universe?

Doggone it, your workdesk is so clean in comparison to my ridiculously cluttered one, I am in awe of you, chicky.

and I think that the time is obviously right to start your LESSONS. Can't wait to hear about that too!

All that hard work purging paid off, you have a clear and open space to create in, that's wonderful.

Huh? Are you SURE this is your desk? It doesn't LOOK like your desk. Maybe check your ID...

I love watercolours too, they are so delicate and adaptable. Have you tried the Derwent Inktense range, they are really intense in colour.

Hi Brenda, I read the theme for this week on Hazel's challenge and did not even think of an alien for a creature - very inspired :) Will be looking out to see what 'lessons' you learn as a 'good student'. Elizabeth x #61

Oh I love people who can watercolour - I have never mastered it so tend to use pens and pencils - I think lack of patience has something to do with it ~ Nicky no.6

Well it looks quite spacious on your desktop! Good luck with the purge..man, I need to do that. Love the idea of the alien as a creature for a chrissy card!
