What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday
Starting off this week with a rather tidy desk as I joined the Grow Your Blog Party on Sunday. I invite you to scroll down and peruse my post. It is a fun and relaxing way to explore other creative blogs and get a glimpse of their work. It took me quite a while and MANY edits to get my post the way I wanted it. I was trying to keep it light hearted but I had just come off a week of giving final exams to my biology classes and trying to figure out final grades…stressful to say the least so I was too exhausted to add much humor. Still, many awesome, encouraging comments.
I am trying to get the hang of The Documented Life Project. I did not join last year as I simply was not ready for such a long term commitment. I truly loved the look of the planner and envied the photos I saw posted on Pinterest. This year they went with an art journal format but I had my heart set on the planner. I waited until just before New Years to set it up then discovered I needed to purchase and watch a video to do so. The next hurdle was creating on such thin paper. HUGE learning curve. If you participated last year I could use any tips you may have. I am discouraged with the paper crumpling as I paint on it. Thinking clear gesso might work but I don’t care for the bumpy texture to write on.
