Well Julia is this a landmark or is that at 300. Here we go another week of checking workspaces around the world and another week of non cleanup for some of us. I prefer to do something other than clean up and the latter looses out when Time is at a premium. If you want to check out what all the woyww is about head here

My desk after a day at Deanie's studio i just dumped and caught up on calendars.
Working on these projects for 2014;
art calendar challenge.....Kate Crane.....A group on her FB site

Draw Your Awesome Life........... Joanne Sharpe. Monthly prompts now paid class is over  on FB and year long follow up.(sign up on her blog).  I just bought her book, the Art of Whimsical Lettering, when it arrives i will participate in the online FB site.

No Excuses Art Journaling. .....Gina Rossi Armfield, monthly, weekly, daily assignments. Buy book and follow on FB. I bought this book for free postage when I bought Joanne's book. This arrived and I was carried away . Another senior symptom. I love it and decided to catch up on march!

This is a weekly assignment.  not drawn prior to this.

Journal 52........Chellie Stein.........Weekly prompts. Bluebeard and Elizabeth got me interested in this one.  this prompt is draw your character. 

Working on journals is a ploy to get me to do something and learn to draw enough to please me, based on a theory buzzing in my little grey cells that practice makes perfect. My definition of perfect is not quite perfect! The variety of projects allows me to do this and to participate using my acrylics and Gelli plate , some collage and learn to draw and watercolor etc.
I am posting this fro m ipad but will correct later on PC. Any errors may be caught then!!!,

Now on PC and think I got everything.  getting good at using Blogsy on iPad.


  1. You have a LOT of calendars and challenges going on. I'm impressed, as always with your drawing skills. I think it's no secret I can't draw, so that's why I cut and paste (the old fashioned way). I'm really impressed with your calendar you link up at Kate's. I love what you are doing there. Sorry I'm not on FB. I miss so much, I realize. But I get to see it here, at least. Happy WOYWW from #2.

  2. Happy WOYWW Monica. You really have some great journals going. He,he, I got a chuckle out of your J52 page with the wine glasses in the background...you GO GF!!
