It has been two months since I did a what are you up to post. But this week I'm actually up to stuff again so I thought I might share my desk with you. In fact I'll share it with you twice, since this is a planned post and I took the pictures on Tuesday-evening and things changed during the night.
When I started my studio session things looked like this:
It's the making of my Bronckhorst Journal, you know, the index card journal I mostly made during my vacation. I worked on the covers and I had to perforate the pages to allow for bookrings to bind them. I finished the journal now and I will probably show it to you some time next week.
Because I still had some time left I figured I might as well work on something else to keep the creative juices flowing. Luckily I had a half prepared page in my Studio Book and I decided to do some collage:
The spread is not completely finished here yet. I added some more elements by stamping flowers on pretty paper and cutting them out. I will show you the finished spread in the future when I do another sketchbook post. What's cool about the spread is that it's full of random things that have nothing to do with each other and yet match really well together. There's leftovers from the Bronckhorst Journal, stickers, tape, labels and info that went with unrelated purchases like notebooks and jeans and of course I'm showing off my new tape. ;-)
I want to end this post with another proof of the generosity that exists in the creative blogosphere. Look what came in the mail!
These pieces of fabric art are a calling card and a bookmark that were made by the wonderful Annie Wade, better known by her followers as Bohemiannie! She is absolutely gifted when it comes to fibers and fabric and you really should check out her blog and her flickr to see what amazing stuff she makes. Thank you Annie!
And that's all for today. Go check out other desks at Julia's and have yourself a wonderful and artsy Wednesday!
