What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday 4th Anniversary!



Happy WOYWW4 to all you wonderful desk hoppers and I hope you have a fun day today!

It goes without saying that a massive vote of thanks, three cheers, and hats off goes to our wonderful hostess Julia Dunnit over at the Stamping Ground (here) for providing us with this amazing opportunity to play in somebody else's creative space for a few minutes each week. THANK YOU JULIA and here's to the next four happy years.

So the point of all this is to show you lovely visitors what is on my workdesk this week - well it's time to knuckle down and do my AJ homework again - blimey that's come round quickly! This month we were set the challenge of producing a journal page featuring...  a portrait. AAAARGH! That's me straight out of my comfort zone of splashing ink and stamps about! As you will know if you are a regular visitor - I AREN'T AN ARTIST!!!! so I've been dreading this homework and have put it off until now (halfterm) in the hopes that having extra time to play might improve matters a bit. So I've been practicing drawing faces...


I'm afraid my desk is a bit white and boring looking today - but I'm quite chuffed with the results. (Sorry they're a bit difficult to see as they are still only pencil out lines - if you click on the pics you can see them better). 
 

I'm waiting for some Neocolour IIs to arrive so that I can colour the faces (I think I'll photocopy them first as this is bound to go hideously wrong!) I know I've copped out majorly by doing whimsical faces (and especially closed eyes) but hey - I know my weaknesses!

Before I go... I have a few WOYWW4 ATCs available for swapping so if you would like to swap with me please leave me your email address in your comment - or let me know that you're interested and I'll try and get to you via your Profile.

Have a great WOYWW birthday - see you soon.

  3. I think your faces are looking really good... I know what mine would look like and would require the background to be a bit Halloween-ish!! ;)

  4. Hi there I don't think I've visited your desk before - how did that happen? Just been looking at your work it's gorgeous.

  6. Oh we definitely aren't an artist, thank goodness for stamps we say. We're pretty impressed with our face drawings though.

    Waving hi from the bears @#101 this week, we think.

  8. Loving those faces. You have made such a great job of getting the proportions right and whimsical is good/flattering! Love that your craft room looks so feminine too. It wouldn't last here. Oh, forgot to say, the boys dug out some Pokemon card holders for my loose stamps - genius idea! Thanks so much for that. Looking forward to our swapsies. Happy WOYWW, hugs Jenny x

  15. Thanks for your kind visit this morning! I love that you are able to draw and sketch (me, not so much, I stick with stamps so that things would be recognizable!). Next year I will try my hand at an ATC so I can participate in the fun. Happy Anniversary! Winnie #98

  26. Mornin' Maisie,

    From one 'non-artist' to another.... Your faces are great, perhaps I'm just a lonely 'non-artist' now that you've proved your can draw. Your colouring will be fab (going off all your other colouring).

    Enjoy.

  27. I love your faces and I'd say you certainly are an artist :-)
    Happy 4th Birthday celebrations....here's to many more.
    Hugs,

  28. I've been visiting your site for many moons now and love what you create. Your whimsy faces are gorgeous. I draw too, but just little cartoon type people and animals. As long as we love it, why not do what we like! Happy WOYWW! Karen 106 x

  29. I know I’m a day late but I’m trying to make it around everyone this week. It’s going to take some time, but I wanted to say that it’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

    For someone who ‘ain’t an artist’ Maisie, you’ve done an amazing job with those faces. I wish I could draw like that.

    Enjoy your weekly snoop, especially as we’re celebrating WOYWW’s 4th Anniversary.
    Happy Crafting!

  30. I definitely aren't an artist but I'd be over the moon if any faces I drew came out like yours! Happy (belated) 4TH woyww. Pam#33

  31. Hi Maisie, Your faces look great, I am rubbish at drawing and if I drew faces as good as yours I would be well chuffed. Sorry I am so late dropping in, have received your addy and your atc is on its way. Hugs Mo x

  32. Hello there, we have a WOYWW Atc for you, if you'd like to send your details to thehouseofbears@hotmail.com

  33. Maisie, I LOVE your whimsical faces with the eyes closed! I think you are, in point of fact, an artist!! Why oh why are we all so critical of our own work? So sad. It's a journal page which is so wide open for creative interpretation. Relax and enjoy the process and be positive. It will NOT go horribly wrong, okay?! Okay.

    Thank you for your kind words to me about my ATCs! I really appreciate it. I don't have any left to send you one, sorry. Now I wish I'd made more ... next time I will.

    Have a wonderful week! Sorry, I'm so late returning the flavor of your visit! xxoo Darnell

  34. For 4 years now i've been dropping by,
    To view some desks and see what I can spy,

    whatever it is, thanks for sharing it,
    Happy Belated WOYWW 4th Anniversary

  36. Your faces are fabulous! I can't even draw a straight line and would never attempt this. And the closed eyes gives them a demure look not whimsy. I'm in awe! Thanks for the earlier visit. a belated Happy WOYWW4! Nan G #6
