WOYWW 104 - The Anniversary

Hello WOYWWers, so this is it! The long awaited and anticipated second anniversary of  WOYWW, What's on your workdesk Wednesday, hosted every week by the lovely Julia over at Stamping Ground. Yes, indeed, this has been going on for two years now and there are quite a lot of creative people who have joined in, and every Wednesday promises a fun journey around the globe.


I'm working on my art journal again. Recently I've been turning to it again and again for a very simple reason - I'm currently taking Christy Tomlinson's "She Had Three Hearts" art journal class, and just like her "The She Art Workshop" did, this class inspires me a lot. Whenever I watch Christy's really good and fun videos I feel my fingers itching, ready to mess around in my art journal. For a pretty long time I was a bit stuck, but now I am full of ideas. It feels darn good.

If you're interested how last Wednesday's art journal page turned out, just click here.

So - my PiF is ready to get mailed to the next participant on the list whose name has a * - I really love this idea and I enjoyed creating my PiF with WOYWW on my mind. Happy special WOYWW everybody!

I keep wanting to do an art journal when I see them on poeples' desks... but something holds me back... maybe I should take a look at the class you are doing!!

I just went to my very first art journalling class recently and loved it! Never thought it'd be my thing but it's great to try something different.

Happy 2nd WOYWW Birthday!

I love it when I suddenly have a good idea or two, or when I find something that inspires me. I too, want to jump straight in and get on with it.

Look forward to seeing some of your pieces of art :)

Gorgeous stuff - I love the way the yellow shades into blues and green on the lower edge... Hope you continue to enjoy it!

JoZart said...

Happy WOYWW 2nd Birthday!
Your journal is so fabulous with such lovely flair and colours but I must admit that I am also attracted to the messy sheet below it.... you've just GOT to use it somewhere. It's a melange of so many bits of your art.

Marcie said...

This is such fun!! So inspiring. I'm going to check out the art journal class...:-)

MaggieC said...

It would have been so nice to to have been able to work on just one browser on our 2nd anniversary. However, I needed to use two just so I could see your photos today. Well worth doing, though. Your journal looks as if it is developing beautifully. Happy anniversary.

Nicks said...

gorgeous journal!
Wishing you a very happy 104th week! Nice to 'meet' you through WOYWW

see you there! said...

Art Journals are so interesting but I seem to start them and never do much in them. Maybe my sketchbook is serving the same purpose although no "journaling" goes on in it.

Elizabeth said...

Hello Carola, I'm struck by the contrast of the bright colours in you journal and the brooding darkness of the photo in your previous post. Your journal looks brilliant. Elizabeth x #81

TheFairyyellowbugQueen said...

That page is wonderful. The surface you paint on is wonderfully inspiring. Looks like a lot of work has been done on that surface. Inspiring and then some! Love the happy colors of the journal page; it makes me want to paint now! *smiles* Norma

Charlene said...

MaggieC said...

I think I am losing it completely this week. I was certain that I had already left you a comment, but I cannot see it - maybe Blogger ate it. Anyway, thank you for your visit and kind comments. I love that picture of the rainbow you used, really perfect for the purpose. Happy 2nd Anniversary of Blogging.

Jackie said...

I love the colours you have used in your journal....yellow has to be my favourite colour! x
