What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #466

Good morning my crafty WOYWW friends! For those of you that aren’t familiar with WOYWW (What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday),  head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and you will find desks from all around the world for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

This morning I am working on a new coloring book that I bought a few months ago. It is a lovely Korean coloring book called, “Romantic Country: Cocot–The Land of Beautiful Towering Castles by Eriy. I have found a bunch of wonderful international coloring books that I have added to my wish list. This one is so pretty. I found a colorist on YouTube that created a night sky on this page so I am following along trying to re-create her magic in my book. I am using my Prismacolor pencils and working through the stages of layering colors and then I will add stars. I will be sure to share the completed page when I finish. Update on last weeks’ craft project – the watercolored postcard.  I finished it and still haven’t mailed it off to my friend. I am pleased with it and will definitely be using the Inktense to color more of those postcards. You can see the finished postcard below. I like how vibrant the colors became once activated. I am pleased to say there was no warping or bleeding through so the postcard is perfectly useable. Ok, I am off to continue on this night sky and then to peek at your desks. Last week, I saw so many pretty and inspiring art. Thank you for sharing.

Have a crafty day!

What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #454

Hello Everyone and Happy Valentines Day! I haven’t posted a WOYWW post in months. Funny how time blows by and you don’t realize how long it’s been until you really focus. My son actually asked me when was the last time I posted on WOYWW and I was so thrilled that he brought it up, that I told him not for a while but I will this week.  He seemed to be happy about it. I think he likes the idea of peeking on desks around the world. So here I am.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with WOYWW (What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday),  head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and you will find desks from all around the world for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

On my desk is one of my new coloring books. You can also see my new Kum pencil sharpener in the blue bowl which is my new favorite sharpener. It makes beautiful sharp points. You can also see a return address stamp I made on my Silhouette before Christmas to use on my Christmas cards. I loved it so much I ordered more stamping supplies!! You can also see mini envelopes I made (some for Valentine’s Day) with my WeRMemory Keepers Tab Punch Board. If you want to see more you can look here.

Over the last few months, I have been immersing myself in the world of colored pencils and adult coloring books. As some of you may know, I am a Copics girl and really have enjoyed coloring with them for years. But the beauty of the craft world is that there are so many mediums to explore to keep oneself happy for a lifetime and I thought this would be a nice skill to add to develop alongside my Copic skills. I realized that just as with Copics, there are papers and other products that can help to enhance the colored pencil experience. So I consider myself a newbie and have been loving watching videos on YouTube of people coloring and teaching techniques.

I have been learning what tools can help and how to use the pencils to create different effects. Being a crafter, I know the learning will be slow and remain patient with the process. After all, it’s supposed to be relaxing. That said, If you look at the photo, I have one leaf left to color but for the life of me I am not sure what color to use. Any suggestions?

I will take some time today for the rest of this week peeking at desks. I can’t wait to see what you all are working on.

Sincerely,

Belinda
