Hello WOYWWers,
My desk didn’t change that much since last week

However, I did manage to finish my underwater canvas and I am pleased with it.

And I must admit, BJ, the glittery scales were indeed inspired by the rainbow fish J

Here you can see the progress the canvas made

and here is the fish in more detail

Off deskhopping now in the hope I will get inspired to do some crafting, because still on the low side.

Wednesday again, yes, it's WOYWW time and we are back at our regular meeting place over at The Stamping ground of Julia.
Another week has flown by in which I managed to do a little bit of crafting, I started on one of the many lessons I am behind on for Wanderlust 2016, Magda Polakow's hidden memories.
This is my take on it so far, it is an underwater scene, I drew the fish myself of which I'm prety pleased, I also like how the scales have turned out.

You can't see it on the picture of my desk (because it is in the attic and not near the window)  but we are having some fabulous weather this week, today up to 34°C. 

So I'm off, my son is waiting to go for a swim. So I will be later with my visits today but I promise I will come by. Have a nice day.

364,365,366,367,368,369,370… all missed out,
but I'm finally back to join in the fun.
The last 7 or 8 weeks I didn't join in because I didn’t have anything to show,
nothing, nadda, zilt happened at my crafting desk, just didn't have inspiration or the urge to create, a very odd feeling indeed.
And I am still having trouble getting back in my ritm, for that reason I did a good cleaning of my craft room this weekend, in the hope that this might help.
So my desk today actually looks rather pristine.

The only thing that is on my desk is a collage sheet. I just like to glue random pieces of scrap on a sheet of paper and adding elements like some stamping here. 

Thank you Jan for taking over from Julia while she was recovering, job well done.

For almost 2 months now I didn't do any creating.
Not that time was really an issue (not more than usual anyway), but for some reason or another my mojo had left the building , just like that, hopefully now it's back to stay for good this time.
The problem with being out of play for so long is inspiration, usually inspiration floods in while I'm creating but no creating equals to no inspiration.
So today I just looked at the challenges I was following and picked one, the alpa/dictionary challenge with the letter W 

W stands for work in the alphabet of happiness.
I used masking tape to create texture on my page

Added some yellow, pink and purple Dylusions paint.
Stamped flowers on some gelliprints and stencilled sunrays in which I wrote the definition:
Work hard every day to be the best person you can be but never feel guilty if you fall short of your goals. Every sunrise offers a second change.

I hope that the posts will follow each other very quickly now.
