WOYWW #433

 Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/p/what-is-woyww.html  and all will be revealed!  

Hello all! Today will be short and sweet - I start a new job today! Hopefully I won't have to give up posting on my blog because of it! 

Here is my desk this morning:





This is the result of last week's unfinished page:
 
 I took this photo at a farmers market several years ago, a Mennonite father and son. I've always wanted to use it in something!
 

And here is a digital collage that I did with the same picture:

 
Lastly, you know it's Fall when. . . 

 the squirrels start hiding these things! We have found a few!

So I am off to new adventures, I will try to get to as many as I can when I get home! Inky isn't coming when I call her at the moment (bad girl - she most know I have to leave!), so I will say goodbye alone today! Have a great week!

Whovever sent the lovely sunny weather with no rain - thank you! It's finally warming up again and we are getting gorgeous late summer days!

Here is my desk this morning - I never change anything when I take my pic on Wednesday morning, and usually have forgotten what my desk looks like when I walk in! Here it is, just click on the photos, all explained on the photos:





I have been playing with the mop up paper towel from a few weeks ago. I decided to photocopy it!





This one I added some Oxide Distress ink to
 
My last journal page, using the tissue paper technique:
And if you haven't quite gotten pic overload, here is my September garden~
 
I'm glad I planted these impatiens in the pots, worked very well!

 
 I cut down all my geraniums in August when it was looking ratty, and now look!


This perennial bed is looking a little scruffy, that's because I need to get in there and trim off dead flowers and weed! But otherwise I'm very happy with it - I even have a poppy bloom!
 
 
Here's to a lovely week 3 of September (isn't it going by fast?) 
one of my canvases!

Inky is surveying her territory, so I will say "bye!" and have a wonderful week!

 Here we are in September already! And someone told the weather it was FALL!! NO it's NOT! We should still have summer weather for a whole month yet! Oh well, maybe it will come back. . .hope you all still have your summer!

Here is my desk this morning:



Still unmounting my stamps! But look at the progress!

 I have had to clear the next shelf for more binders! And look at what I still need to do:

 These are the rest of the boxes of mounted stamps.

Here is the pile of stamps I am currently unmounting:
 These filled up one of the large boxes!

I have a journal page to show you, I am working from a book called "The Mixed-Media Artist" by Seth Apter (and Seth actually commented on it when I put it my FB group!!). I used his technique on pages 166-117 for this page:


The background technique is 4 layers, and you can just see layer two peeking through - I used an embossing folder on gesso to make the subtle pattern:


This page pairs up with the page I made for Texas:
 
 I suppose next week I will be making a page for Florida  šŸ˜Ÿ

I've asked Inky if she wants to go outside again - she says "it's too cold!" We both hope you have a lovely week with lots of sunshine (and if you do, send some our way please!)
