WOYWW 294 LETS ESCAPE THE WORLD

Image
Today the sun is shining and the view outta my window is gorgeous.  Yesterday, front bridge with 4 teeth had to come out as root canals have signs of decay. The sound of hammering in your head is terrifying. Last week ear doc put me on prednisone as my hearing is deteriorating rapidly.  So I feel like I am in an ancient world were the harbingers of destruction  are closing in and the apocalypse is nigh!  Wow I like that bit of drama. 
 Everyday I sit and stare at an art journal and every day it gets easier to feel inspired.  My discovery of Gesso, thanks to The Documented Journal Project, DJP, has made working much easier as I can wipe out an unsatisfactory idea as a new idea spawns. So between spawn and fizzle new ideas replace the old with a splash of gesso and a quick brush.  This enables me to remember the great idea that spawned after the first idea fizzled.    
So Here is THE Desk
The the theme for the month of January in DLP is ways to cope with a blank page,  and this week the c…

If i spend less time on Pinterest FB and Bloglovin I might have more time to write on my blog and then not feel panicked every Tuesday afternoon around 2.01pm.  Now this is not the fault of MS Julie, the sweet young thing who came up with the idea of this mosey around the desks of like minded persons near and far.  So if you want to know about it and join in head to Stamping-ground

 I am having a really fun time with The Document Life Project(DLP) My original intention was to use it as a way to practice my none existent drawing skills but my love of collage and mix media always wins the dilemma.  One reason when I wrote down my goals for the year they turned out to be the same as those of last year.  Carried away by prompts and Pinterest!!! 

 The tidy desk is gone replace by the true me.  With my new job, Mistress of the Litter Boxes a real lady in waiting(they wait until you clean it)I have days when that is enough cleaning etc.  Truth is I love a studio mess.  

Here is THE WORK SPACE, …

Wishing everyone a happy healthy and successful 2015. Also hoping all those resolutions lead to a fuller life and the effort to resolute is wort while. This year my big thing is the Documented Life Project that this year is a journal not a planner. I say this as it appears that many who did it last year find it hard to make a change from planner to journal. My reason for doing this project is that it is less structured and more arty. After paining the cover and completing the first challenge i find myself back in sentence 2, as the first page is a prompt " to be your own goal keeper". When i completed this and looked at ajournal from last year i found that my goals were just the same as last year and just as awkwardly stated as las year. So goals or resolutions do not seem to be working! Thus 2015 starts on a what the....moment. Phots for this arein Drobox so I will add when i get on PC and find them.
My desktop should have been a goal BECAUSE.......... Surely that …
