new year, new decade, new goals

With a new year, comes new years resolutions.
Maybe one of mine could be giving some TLC to my blog, 
because quite frankly I have been neglecting it lately 
due to other social media, mainly Instagram 
(you can find me under my blogname butterfliecrafter)
there you will see that it is not because I am not creating anymore,
although that has also been on a low fire,
but since I followed Kasia Avery's daybydaycourse the fire has been reignited and I am trying to keep up with a daily routine.
Here are some of my favourite pages that I created during the course:

Right after this challenge I followed along with Kasia's advent calendar,
extending my daily routine,
here are some of my pages

and now I am starting of with creative jumpstart 2020

So I hope to create daily as of now 
because I feel that I need to,
that it helps me relax and destress,
and just because.

Hello fellow WOYWWers,
looks like a lot of you had a seriously blast with the crop,
unfortunaltely I live across the canal,
maybe one day though...

my desk this week looks rather neat

I am currently in full swing of Tammy Garcia aka Daisy Yellow's ICAD2019 challenge,
the set up is to create an indexcard a day (like the name ICAD says 😊)

here are the ones I have completed till now
(they also stil count to finish my 365somethings2018)

what else can be spotted on my desk?
my new aquarelmarkers, 
no fancy brand, 
just from Action (priced only €3.99), 
there are 6 different trays in total, 
I have bought 3 to test them

okay Yulia, you busted me last time,
 my desk was clean despite of the AJ page because it was in fact staged 😉😳
what does my desk look like in all his glory then??
well, something more like this

I've just finished creating this indexcard for my 365somethings

At the left you can spot some more finished indexcards which I still need to put up on the blog

and there are some that are started and need to be finished

Happy 10th anniversary 
and on to many more years of desksharing

Another week has flown by and my desk doesn't look the same,
that is always a good thing 😉

Last week someone wondered what I would do with my Mona Lisa stencil,

Trust is exactly what I needed to have creating this page,
because it first went from bad 
to worse 
to finally something I like.

Van Gogh

2 months ago I went to the Van Gogh immersive experience in Brussels
which was impressive to say the least.
When you entered it was as if you walked into his bedroom.

In the next room you sat down in a beach chair
and enjoyed his paintings brought to life 
and projected on the massive walls,
(below a little flavor video)

In the last room you truly entered his world through virtual reality,
this was truely mindblowing.

These impressions return in below artjournalpage 
using one of my newest stencils.

Today I testdrove the alphabet and numbers stencil

together with my new watersoluble oil pastels

and I love them both💓💓💓

I love the boldness of the letters and numbers 
and the soft vibrant colors of the oilpastels

3 more stencils to test...

196-197/365something2018 - new stencils

Remember these new stencils on my desk on Wednesday?

Of course I needed to give them a test drive:

Now I see the picture I see I a mistake, 
I wrote "sweet home sweet", 
instead of "home sweet home"😂
also true of course 😉

And one te remember from time to time:
a little progress each day adds up to big results."

That is already 2 tested and approved.
Tomorrow on to the next.
