What are you up to Wednesday - part 46 (woyww 155)

Even though I have been working at my desk, the view must seem quite similar to last week. That's because I'm still working on the same project, the little journal that I'm putting together. I just finished two more spreads and another one is currently ready to be finished on my table. It just needs a few more details. To not give the exact same picture as last week I thought I'd give you a wider view.

I often get comments on how organized my work tables are, but I can make messes too as you can see. It's true though that I like to know where things are and keep them sorted by kind. You know tape with tape, images with images, paints with paints, that kind of thing. I'm not overly precise and if you were able to see really up close you would also see I'm not a very good cleaner, but I do like my bit of order in the world. ;-)

Then I wanted to share something that happened weeks ago already, but that I keep forgetting to tell you about, namely the fact that I am now officially a photoshop brush! Um...let me rephrase that: some of my freebie labels were turned into photoshop brushes by people who know how to do these things (me not being one of those people obviously). I was contacted by a representative of the site that provides people with free photoshop add-ons and elements and they wanted to use the freebie-labels that I made last year to make some brushes. Since they would offer them for free I agreed. Here they are (if you click on the image it will take you to their site):

I think you have to become a member of their site to use them though. I do know that joining is free too. I think it's pretty cool that somebody thought my labels would make cute brushes. So just in case there are some photoshop lovers amongst you, you might like to check it out or maybe just find out if their site is anything for you to explore.

So that's all for today. If you wish to see more worktables go check out Julia's link up.
I hope you all are having a wonderful Wednesday!

  12. Hi Caatje's,thanks for popping in to visit me. You have a very 'artsy' looking desk, with a fab table cloth. Love all the bottles of paint /ink too. Congratulations on having your labels turned into photoshop brushes, though I must say I wouldn't have a clue how to use them lol. Oh dear !

  13. Thanks for your woyww visit. Isn't that a nice compliment that your labels were chosen by photoshop. That will be fun for you to see them popping up in other artist's work! Barb

  14. How cool is that?!? You've been discovered by a big company! Congrats! And congrats on the lovely mess and the awesome journal pages. I love what I'm seeing on FLICKR.

  15. Before there are any misunderstandings: I was not discovered by a big company and Adobe (the maker of photoshop) has no idea who Caatje is. These are just some guys who host a website where they make photoshop add-ons and give photoshop information. Anybody can do that as far as I can tell. It's not like the big bucks came in (no pay whatsoever came in, it's al free) or I have it made, haha. ;-)

  16. Well I think the photoshop brushes look good so well done!! x Jo

  17. Your desk looks totally perfect and yes I understand the organization that you have to have but the cleaning bit, not so good for me neither. LOL You really did make me giggle. Oh and congrats for the photoshop brush, awesome.
