This was my desk last night while I was midway through Shimelle's Starting Point from the weekend. We have my basket of LSNED bits that I have to sort out due to changing my mind, then a previous layout which needs filing, my iPad for inspiration, my hospital appointment letter for Friday (FINALLY might get my extra ribs sorted!), my cup of tea (I'm going decaff to try and help with sleeping), and then all across the bottom are the bits for the current project.
I did one Starting Point and I didn't like it, I don't know why, but I will post it up in the next few days and maybe you can help me work out why! I much prefer my second version with the My Minds Eye Good Day Sunshine papers. This was the Starting Point (which for those who don't know is the basis that we are given and then we expand things from there so a slightly different take on a sketch).
The photo was taken by L, my newly 5 year old boy took in the early summer. We may have shady faces but we are in focus, smiling, looking at the camera and all the relevent bits are in it (i.e. no heads cut off!) I love this photo because of the joy on our faces and because he wanted to take a picture of us having fun.
I took the photo this morning but I decided it looked too flat so I added the pleated ribbon for more texture. I do have to get myself into some funny positions when the light is bad and its a rainy day like today and I wonder how many crafters have injured themselves in pursuit of a decent photo!
So what's on your workdesk today? Go on share it! You know you want to! Take a look at Julia's blog if you want to know more and to see many other desks from across the world.
Bye for now
