A Diaster - That's What's On My Desk


I just couldn't help it. I was so excited to play with this week's Lifebook lesson - it was sprays - lots of beautiful Dylusions, vivid color!! So I just kind of pushed everything to one side and went for it. When I was done, this is what was left.

The lesson was two parts, I only worked on the first part tonight...

We worked on white space, focal points, rule of thirds and did I mention COLOR???

I just love her...wish I could remember where she came from. Graphic 45 maybe?

Another thing I've been occupying my time with is the Documented Life Project. I was doing it in my regular art journal, but decided to jump on the band wagon with the moleskin planner. I spent most of my art time on Sunday tipping in pages.

I have a nice collection of washi tape so it was easy to get a good variety of COLOR.

And for my final photo, I'm still continuing with the Art Everyday Challenge - Inchie style. Here is all of January.

If you are interested in seeing many more desks, all from creative folks, join us with Julia's world wide tour of desks this and every Wednesday. It's a ton of fun. Enjoy!


  1. What a lovely, colourful post. I love your sprayed piece, those greens are stunning. It's certainly a very creative desk!

  2. Now that is a desk to be proud of, so much creativity on there. Love the bright colours on your Life book lesson piece. Wow, so many inchies, I wish I could do just one a month. They are really colourful and bright, just fabulous.
    Have a great week.

  3. Love your post this week, Sara! That GREEN page (sorry about the capitals, but it really does smack you between the eyes!!) is just fab, I really enjoyed looking at it. The steampunky lady is beautiful, whoever made her!
    Clever idea to edge the pages..now the book will be as beautiful side on as it will from the from and inside :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 33 xx

  4. Awesome desk! Loving the page - that green is fantastic. Your planner looks gorgeous, loving those page edges.

  7. Oh tht's just the perfect way to do it - push it aside and get on - how inspiring and how much fun! Your page is amazing..the colour sthing obviously speaks to you big time, am loving the mixed tip ins too. And am in awe at how much you've done in a week. I seem to be procrastinating...again!

  8. Your dresser off to the side looks amazing with the painted flowers :) and the washi tape looks wonderful on the edges :) hugs Nikki 29

  9. I love your "disaster" of a desk, it makes it look like you had great fun playing!
    And that is a really lovely big window--must be nice to look out of when it light.

  10. wow I love seeing a work desk that looks exactly like this. you can tell you get stuck in there and enjoy your art. fabulous. thank you for your comment on mine. Michelle x

  11. Hi Sara, just popping in to check out your workspace...cool creative desk and yes I can understand pushing aside things when you're 'in the mood' - mine spreads to the floor...cheers anyway have fun RobynO#16

  12. What a fabulous Dylusions page - glorious splatter of colour! The January inchies look fantastic all lined up, and I love the washi'd pages.... and the desk looks just like home sweet home to me!!

  13. Fantastic projects Sara, it is so lovely to see so many bright funky colours on such a grey day. Thank you for your visit. Have a great week. MMx #40

  14. Oh I love everything you have you show today. The green and white space page is amazing, the DLP is colourful and the inches are superb. BJ#73

  15. That desk looks very creative and very familiar too! Your page looks fantastic (yes, I'm pretty sure she is from G45) Loving those bright Dylusion colours. The inchies look fab too.

  16. White space is something I need to work on. I'm such a "MORE is more!" Kind of person. Beautiful layout on that page. I'm super jealous of your washi tape collection, too. How do you store and/or make use of your inchies and twinchies? I've always been tempted to make them, because I love tiny things, but I'm afraid the majority of them would just become something that got dropped on the studio floor and stuck to my shoe.


Thanks so much for leaving a few words...it's so much fun to get feedback! Here's wishing you sunny skies (at least proverbially!)
