What's on your Workdesk? Wednesday

Making a bit of a mess this week.  Under the deli paper is a prototype of the ACT for the WOYWW 6th anniversary.  I already made 16 ATC's but after completing them felt they may be too simple for the exchange.  Feeling doubtful (and somewhat intimidated by what was created last year) I started playing around with a mixed media one.  The fluff of white is remnants of wedding veil material I bought on a garage sale a while back. I like mixing it in with burlap for texture.  The 2 small glass viles are grunge embossing powder.  The flower I made with the white is sitting on the magazine.
Allistair decided the veil material looked like an excellent place to nap.

What I created this week:

Letter W Rolo: W is for Winter (front)

Traveling Journal p. 1

Traveling Journal p. 2
This journal was rather difficult to work in because of the paper, the size, and the pages were back to back rather than a spread type layout.  

Pocket Letter: About Me (front)

I actually had this done a couple of weeks ago.  This is my first pocket letter.  Am not addicted to these as some swappers are and they do take a while to put together depending on the theme.  Covering the backside is not a requirement but being the left-brained perfectionist that I am I like the finished look.  Also, I have been coloring at night or during the day on Sunday's to combat work stress so this gives me something to do with the completed coloring page. I use Prismacolor markers (here) or watercolor pencils with an H2O brush.  I will be featuring this for May's addition of Stop Pinning & Make Something! link party.  I hope you will comeback Friday and join in.  I will be giving away a pocket letter this month.
