Each wee, Julia Dunnit of "Stamping Ground" encourages us all to share our workspaces and what we are working on.

Once again, I worked on my dining room table. The pile to the left is a bag of gelli paper scraps. I love using these for backgrounds. But looks like I need to spend some time to create more gelli papers.

ART on Friday


It is time once again to share some of what I have been working on this week. I must admit that the past two weeks have seen me creating very little. My hubby finally had his angiogram this week after having it cancelled last week. It has been a stressful few weeks. The finding was that there were no blockages - not sure where we go from here now.

Colour Me Positive
I did complete this week's challenge from LuLu Art - how what we sow today, may not have effect for some time.



Tag Tuesday
The theme this week at Tag Tuesday is "Birds and Nests"




The Collage Workbook
I only worked on 1 challenge - Maps.



Speak Out Cards
Here are the last few "speak out" cards I created for ABC Wednesday:








Spring Vision Board
With each new season, I create a vision board that helps me focus on what I hope to accomplish for the next three months. With spring arriving last Monday, I created this vision board.(My OLW is at the bottom - cultivate)

Some weeks, just getting to share at all is okay, even if it is a day late.
Here are a few things I have been working on this week:

Colour Me Positive
This week the challenge at LuLu Art was being grateful. I try most days to lest a few things I am grateful for - it really does lift your mood.




Challenges

Sunday Postcard Art
I have started to take part in this challenge and the theme is "Poetry". As I looked through the words I had cut out, it struck me that many focused on what life is - so the poem is "Life is..."
