A very good morning to everyone ..it's that day of the week that we get to have good snoop around crafty workspaces round the world which means it must be Wednesday and time for WOYWW go check out the Stamping Ground to take part;the exceptional host Julia will make you welcome...its quite simple really post a photo of your desk/work area and tell us all about it.
I missed last week but still manage to have a snoop at my favourite sites...I'm nosey so can't stop myself! This was my desk at 10:30 pm last night; I dont usually craft this late and normally stop by 9pm to watch TV with hubby...It's our time to relax and catch up for few hours before bed and work next day...but I couldn't stop myself...next week I'm starting an online water colouring course thanks to a very dear and kind friend who gifted it to me...I am really looking forward to it as you can access site/lessons indefinitely so even if you don't mange each lesson in real time you can go at your own pace...ideal for me.They have posted a few pre course exercises this week one of which is to do a swatch of your paints...hence the reason the abandoned card I was working on has been pushed aside temporarily to make way fro my paints and bits.
watercolour paint swatches
This was my third attempt due to my OCD the first one went well until the last line when for some reason the swatches seem to have grown substantially from the other two lines!...and I realised I had some duplicate paints...so that was no good although... I have kept it. The second I decided to use a ruler and pencil to mark squares the first row was just perfect...too perfect...so on the second line I tried without the marker lines disaster!...it was so different from the line above...it just did not work and I also discovered I couldn't rub out the pencil marks !...so it was third time lucky and it worked...whoopeeee!...as I still had a big blank piece of card left I did a second swatch with the colours watered down...I was determined to finish it hence the time. Despite the rather wonky lines I can live with this one...I cant go on a straight line it s the same when I write on unlined paper it starts off good then goes the wrong way!...but it not a test in perfection and will be good for me as that's one my problems...so hopefully by the end of it I will have developed some skills and relax about imperfection...and most importantly enjoy it.
