Early Morning Desk for WOYWW
When I can’t get back to sleep, the best thing to do is get up and create. I woke up this morning just after 2:00, mind racing. Teaching younger middle school students is quite the challenge. The 4 groups I inherited have too many students, many of which have inner city issues. Combine that with a small classroom (built for 25 not 40) and it’s a day filled with constant chaos.
On my desk this morning is my Texture journal, new Halloween mug, a bottle of Distress paint in evergreen bough, a roll of drywall tape, deli paper with mop up paint, and that bag of Halloween feathers I still haven’t found a project for. My intent was to add a black feather of two to this page as she is donning a feather hat but the black was too stark of a contrast.
Laying out the elements before gluing them down
This was a project I had been wanting to do for a while. I vaguely remember a desker creating one and sharing it for WOYWW a year or two ago but I have no recollection who (if you can remember, please include her name and blog in the comments).
