WOYWW? 224

Well, am afraid I missed a Wednesday post again, and a whole week of blog posts. Fear not! This is not due to missing creativity, but because I am still playing with learning how to work my new cutting machine. To say I have become obsessed is an understatement!!!

Showing on my desk today is a Papier Mache model which I think resembles a quirky rabbit. The base is constructed with twisted newspaper, this is then covered with three layers of newspaper and finally a layer of decorative paper. I have made him a top hat and plan to knit a waistcoat.

Don't ask me why I am making this...I have no idea!

So I you want to take a look at what all the other creative folk are getting up to take a trip to Stamping Ground where you can view desks from all around the globe.

A bit of Zentangle

Played a little with a Zentangle design. I so admire this kind of art when I see it, but I think I need more practice!

WOYWW? 222

Today there is a picture of my travelling desk as I am away from home this week with my portable art bag. It has been a while since I did any sketchbook play so I just worked today on a simple sketch to wake the creative spirit.

which I then painted......

For those of you interested in the paper cut sampler designs I mentioned last can see them here and here.

Now take the chance to pop over to Stamping Ground and see how many more lovely desks you can find there!
