Another Wednesday - WOYWW

Hello WOYWWers - welcome to my workspace!

First, thank you everyone for your lovely comments you left here at last week's WOYWW. I hope I succeeded in getting back to each of you - if I missed someone I apologize. I also have to admit that I didn't get to everybody on Julia's list, I think I made it to 125... I really love visiting all your places, but it may take some time.


Alright, so what's on my desk today? I have several projects going at the moment, it's a busy time. Right at the centre I'm working on a canvas panel in orange - one of my very favorite colors. I will call it "I am orange" and I got the idea while reading Barbara Sher's book "Wishcraft - How to Get What You Really Want" - more on that in a later post (hopefully).

To the left you see my humble attempt for this week's Creative Color Challenge. The color is sea green, and this week it's combined with Cathy Nichols' Found Art Friday for August, theme "To the sea". I'm planning to include a small piece of driftwood that I found at the beach and one of my favorite stamps. It's still a little bit up in the air, but I think I'm getting there.

You can also see some tags hanging around that I hope to have finished by the end of the week - they're kind of afterthoughts.

Many of you asked me to see the finished piece of last week's project that was on my desk, so here it is:


I've called it "Pensive Mermaids". I am very happy that Louise Gale included it in her wrap-up that she does every Saturday of the different Creative Color Challenges.

That's it for today, now I'm off sneaking over to your blogs and checking out what you're working on. I really like WOYWW although it takes quite some time to visit everybody - it's worth it.

See you again next Wednesday. Oh, and if anybody wants to join in this, hop on over to Julia's Stamping Ground to get all the information.

Love your pensive mermaid canvas - what a contrast to the bright orange one you are working on now.

Not a clue what I am doing on my canvas - changed my mind mid-way through. Ah well.

Wow, that orange piece is gorgeous. Did you create the background? I am also glad you showed your piece from last week.

I seem to get later and later each week, but I had a big tutorial to post on Thursday and had trouble getting back to the WOYWW links. Have a great weekend and a happy belated WOYWW.
