WOYWW 91

Hello WOYWWers, nice to "see" you. I hope that everybody is doing fine and if not, I hope you'll be fine soon. It's March already and this means that spring should be here this month - yay!! Although we really don't have bad winters here, I can't wait for the temperatures to go up, and work in the garden.

On my work table today are actually two projects. I'm working on my second page for my art journal and have just created some kind of background using watercolors. The last time I painted with water colors is ages ago and I feel that I have to learn and practice a lot. I'm so impatient - and this page will be about that, my impatience.


Project #2 is a little piece for an online class about mixed media I'm currently taking. This is so much fun!!! I was so tired today, but when I started working on this canvas I had a really good time. I'm creating the background at the moment, this is just the beginning. I wonder where it will take me. This picture shows the canvas just after I had put another layer of Modpodge on, it's still wet. So far, I like it. Next, I will slash paint on it.


And those of you who wanted to see my finished art journal page from last Wednesday can see it here.

There are many more work tables to visit around the world. For a list, please go to the Queen of snoop, Julia's blog. Thanks for stopping by.

Dear Carola.. love your colour combos and layout not sure what Modpodge is but guess it is coating the layers nicely, thanks for sharing,

Hi Carola,

You have just inspired me! I used to do quite a bit of experimentation with sketch books but somehow I left it behind feeling too tired of an evening - I think it's time to get the paints and glue out!

I loved your recent hand art, this journal page looks great too!

Watch our for some posting!

Love to you,
Sue x

I started one of these some time ago, don't think I'll ever finish it as it doesn't look half as good as your page. Have a great week
Happy WOYWW! #35

I love your art journal page #1 and it is so inviting to see the two backgrounds waiting for you, your inspiration, the creative results. And I do envy you that coastline...

Julia Dunnit said...

Ooh Carola, your work doesn't give away your impatience! Me too - it's why I don't start stuff without having the end in mind...the 'jurney' makes me nuts! I LOVE the colours that you've arrived at in journal and on canvas.

Diana said...

I'm so impatient with art, too. The key is to have 2 projects going at once and to pull yourself away from the first project before you ruin it. :) That part I have to learn. Very pretty colors! Nice to see your having fun.

Christine E-E said...

Minxy said...

Both projects look gorgeous already, can't wait to see them finished. I definitely can't wait until spring, mind you I feel lucky to be in the uk compared to other bloggers weather, I like snow but not sure I could cope with that much cold.
