Anywhoo, what is on my workdesk...... lots of stuff! I'm working on this display box thingy that has sat nekkid and neglected for well over a year - probably nearer two!! I've given it a coat of gesso (sorry Doone, I had to do it!) and now I'm layering up some grungy inkyness (which is why all the distress inks are scattered around). The flash has bleached a lot of it out, but there is some colour going on there. Various shades of grunge (scattered straw, antique linen, brushed corduroy, weathered wood) and a few shimmer mists and various mini-mister concoctions of mica, ink and water. I'm just spraying, dabbing, wiping and splodging different things and building up the layers so it looks suitably old and grungy and lovely. Once I feel it's ready I'll start putting some backgrounds in the different niches and some bits of ephemera and various stuff. There's a pile of stuff I've earmarked for this project just to the right of the desk.
Oh, you can see I've been playing with my Tim Holtz tattered leaves as well :)
Happy Wednesday everyone.
