Happy Wednesday!
I have been busy working on putting final touches on some projects. I have created 19 4x4 chunky pages to draw on, and have a few packages that need to be sent off before tomorrow as I will be heading for Artzona for the weekend to meet up with some fellow artists. I can't wait! I'm so excited to be able to spend some time with some great artists from allover the country. We will have some from Oregon, California, Georgia, Texas, and then ME from NV.
I have completely covered my art desk with items galore that really haven't been touched as I had to move to the dinning room table to "spred out" my art pieces for trading with the girls! I have completed all of my ATCs and today will spend numbering them and cataloging them into my filing system to make trading much easier on me! I love my set up I have and it works so fast and simple. I love to have things in order, so you can imagine why I don't want to touch my art studio yet! My brain is overloaded and I don't know where to start! But, I think after this weekend get-away, I will take charge and tackle the re-organization of my art studio! I just have to talk myself into it! Don't be suprised if the next time you see my art studio you will see nothing but desk, because all of it will be on the floor to re-organize, throw out, donate, or thrown back on my desk!!
Oh Awful isn't it?
If you want to participate in Julia Dunnit's What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday just hop on over to her blog at:

Well, thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! I hope that you will stop by again and I hope to have a few more projects to share with you.

Altered Hand for Weare138 who's participating
in the PIF Altered Hand. This hand
will be heading for Scotland today.

A few unfinished 4x4 and 8x10 altered Cavas'.

Three packages that need to be sent out this afternoon.
(Notice I haven't finished my Zombie Hand from last week?)

Here are 19 altered 4X4 chunkies that are just calling my
name to draw on them and then be put up for trade. They will
be going with me to Artzona tomorrow.

Here are two finished 4X4's that are drying. I was just trying
out different mediums to use on them. Both pictures are
hand drawn with Marker and ink and then used different
mediums on them. The Bird has Clear gesso on it, so it
has a roughness to it so I can add more artwork to it.
The mermaid has been finished with Modge Podge and then
gel medium matte on it. I don't know if I will keep the matte
on it and may upgrade to a heavy gel medium to protect
the mermaid after I add a cute little seahorse to the side of her.

You have a wonderful creative and busy desk - I love the altered hand, never seen one of those before (not including my own hand after an inky session - lol)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend meet up - tell us all about it next time.

Thanks for already visiting my desk.
