WOYWW #198

Zip, zip, another week is gone...where does time go? And why can't I bottle it? It's Wednesday in some parts of world...time for another tour around the world at our creative spaces, thanks to the lovely Julia and her blog,  the Stamping Ground. This week my desk is about average I would say.

A hot mess of a journal page...but as I remind myself it's a process and I have some learnin' to do. If you look at this in the larger picture view you'll see a BIG note to self at the bottom. If you are going to use watercolor, don't start the drawing with a stabio pencil - it will turn into a big ole' black mess.

I've been working things on the next class for the Stamp Cache which is called 'Working Smaller'. I love these little cut-outs that Helga makes at The ArtChix Studio so we'll be making a few of these in April. The little house is a magnet and the beach scene will be popped up onto a card. We'll see what else I can come up with in the next few days.

If you look hard you can see one of the new Tim Holtz rub-on sentiments at the bottom - sweet life. I love these because they're transparent!

And finally this was the major creative project over the last week. 

As you can see I have a thing for dress forms, so I knew it was a natural to combine that shape with Tim Holtz's floral dies for his Tattered Floral Challenge. For more details on my entry click here. I'm off to link up and head out! Have a great week everyone.
