WOYWW Aug 31/11

Wow,  I haven't done a WOYWW for awhile now and I sure have missed it!  Especially all the wonderful WOYWWers I was meeting thru this blog hop.  My schedule at work changed and therefore my routine changed a bit and I couldn't seem to post a WOYWW picture in time.  Mind you this is very late as Wednesday is drawing to a end even here in Canada.  And if you don't know what WOYWW is just pop over here to Julia's blog and find out!  And join in too!  You post a picture of What's On Your Workdesk (this) Wednesday and then join the blogroll and visit people desks all over the world!
What is here on my desk is a teeny tiny canvas that is just 2" x 2".  I am making a little painting for a friend's dollhouse.  In this picture I have just put a wash on the canvas so far, so you will have to come back to see what the finished painting will look like!
Thanks for stopping by!

Journal Pages

 I haven't been blogging much lately as I have not really been working on any "projects".  I have been working in my art journal and these are 2 pages that  I have completed.  I have some other pages in varying stages of completion and I might post them as I finish them.  I also have started a couple of online classes and the 2nd page here is from one of them, the True To You 2 class with Samantha Kira.

Brighton Boy

I made a little painting for my DH.  He grew up in Brighton, England so I put him on Brighton Beach as a little boy.  Again, this piece is covered with beeswax which I love applying!

A Boy and His Dog

This is a painting I did for the Suzi Blu Lalala class.  I made it for a friend's birthday.  He has an adorable little dog that he loves dearly and this drawing of her is not too far off the mark!  I have since given him the painting and he said he loves it so I am happy!

What a Lovely Surprise!

 Wow, look what I received in the mail today!  A gorgeous mixed media canvas made by the wonderfully creative and talented Monique!  Go here to see her blog and more of her fabulous creations.
And, as if the painting wasn't enough, she also sent me all sorts of other goodies too!  A great card she made and a fabulous tag both using Stampotique stamps.  Monique is part of the Stampotique Design Team blog and she always comes up with these cool creations!   Also, a beautiful hanging piece of art with stamped tiles and beads, all wired together expertly!   And also all sorts of papers and ephemera that I will try to use on my own mixed media ... although it will be hard to use them as they are so beautiful.
Thank you so much Monique!  You really made my day!
