WOYWW #199

Oh Julia have I got a surprise for you this morning. Look - a messy desk:
It's been tidy for so many weeks that I almost forgot what a mess I can make.
I am desperately trying to complete a decent piece following Andy Skinner's online class, Book of Ruination. Pop over to Andy's web for details of this, it really is good fun. I therefore have paints, embellishments, sponge, brushes, paper towel, bits of card, torn book pages, mixing pallets, etc. etc. all over the place. The outside of my book is almost complete but I am now doing battle with my lack of skills to try and make a really nice inside. It will take a couple of days to achieve but I will keep going. It's at points like this when I wish I was an artist rather than a crafter who just has a go because I do get frustrated when I struggle with a technique that looks easy when done by the professionals. Still, it's all in the fun and just having a go. After all, if a pile of old plastic can be classed as art, then just look at the creation in the middle of my desk........
If you want to see more 'creations' then pop over to Julia's where you will find a list of like-minded folk having fun with all sorts of bits and bobs.
Happy and fun WOYWW.

I don't doubt that you'll make it and it will be a work of art - you are your own worst critic after all. And your desk looks amazing, fun and busy..I see no mess!

I know what you mean about the inside...if I had a little complaint it is that there were no ideas provided for finishing the inside! I'm still pondering mine ;)

once you get the time to sit and think you will have no problem doing your book. Being a crafter is also being an artist as you are still creating something that is a one off and not found anywhere else. I look forward to seeing your book come alive
Wishing you a very Happy Easter and a great day today
