WOW, what is on my worktable?

Actually, there is a big mixed media mess and I need to reclaim my worktable for sewing.  If some create their projects in a closet or on a kitchen table, surely I can corral the stuff on a counter. :O  Of course the counter is a creative mess as well.  :(


I have some canvasses I bought some time go.  They are still wips but I snagged one, gessoed over the first attempt and I'm wanting to make a pot of flowers.  If Leslie can, well so can I!  It is clouded over and the aqua isn't showing well. Neither can the white lettering be seen. 


This style fits where I am wanting to put it.  Next time I'll be going for funky!  But this is now worse light and I wish I'd followed my first instincts and used the bigger canvas. Well, the flowers would have been too small.  There are alwaus more what if's...  I got a few more flower options at the thrift shop!

Jenn and I are off on a field trip this afternoon.  A scrap booking store!  More options and more to spread all over the worktable!

Check out some other worktables.  It was a long weekend so maybe there will have been some fireworks in the various studios to see!

Love it! Love the style, the collage, the color, ALL! If you wanted a bit more of the aqua accent, add it with a colored aqua marker! (or aqua spray through a screen/stencil!)

Very nice!! I think mixed media collage is sometimes hard to pull together without looking contrived. You have done a great job with this piece! Looks like you are a natural and we should watch for more wonderful pieces with the treasures you find in your most recent shopping trip!

Every piece is either a masterpiece or practice on the way to a masterpiece! Love your collage and the dimensional flowers!
