What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday – #531

my desk…

Hello! Sorry I am late. I had class last night, and I had a hard time falling asleep when I got in bed, which resulted in a slow start to the day. But here I am to share my space with you crafty mavens!

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 where we get to snoop on other crafter’s desks.

This is my first real dive into my Dewert Inktense pencils. I have dabbled a little but this the first time I really went all in on the process. Today I am using my new Daydreams coloring book by Hanna Karlzon. It’s hardcover and absolutely lovely. I highly recommend it. The paper quality is suitable for pencils and water color. Then I found a Youtuber that used the Intense pencils on this page in her video. I loved her color schemes so much I just had to lift them!

Unfortunately I have to run out later and take my son to a doctors’ appointment or else I would spend the time to finish this page. I only have a little left. It has taken me several sessions to get this far but I think I can complete the remaining items in one sitting. I have to practice more with the blending but it is very relaxing working with these pencils and this paper. I look forward to coloring more in this book. I love this process of discovery. I know I have a lot to learn but definitely want to improve my skills with this medium.

Well I’m already late to the party so I am going to sign off so I can go snoop.

Happy crafting my friends!!

What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #436

Well hello, my crafty peeps!! I’m back again with my desk that had some creeping clutter so I had to remove a few things so you could focus!!

Today before I begin work,  I am going to have mini colored pencils playtime.  I am finding that little blocks of time making it easier for me to do things I enjoy. Let’s see on my desk you can see my Copic Hexchart that is always there unless I go crafting with my girlfriends. Next to it are some Fall-die cuts I cut out on my Silhouette to use in my planner. Below that is a pretty little 6×6 pad of paper that I picked up for $2 last week when I went I go crafting with my girlfriends. It is called Vintage Wallpaper. The elephant case holds more colored pencils. I love elephants and this case had to be mine when I saw it at my local TJMaxx. I have a bowl of washi tape and on the lower right is my lovely Kindle. I carry it with me pretty much everywhere.I thought I would share a few pages from this amazing coloring book that I bought about a month ago. The pictures are large and has a mixture of detailed and large areas to color so that I won’t go totally insate!!
I still need to get inspiration to color in coloring books so I usually try to find real pictures of the subjects (in this case Egypt) to come up with color combos.
The cover is stunning and when I saw it in Barnes and Noble, I knew it had to be mine. I plan on slowly working my way through this one. I love that each page is only one-sided and the paper is very thick. You could color and then display them.

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.

Well back to work I go. I will visit many over the next few days. Have a blessed day and make time for creating!
