Using whats on my desk

I like challenges!
Yep, you know I do!
Many times I turn to other blogs for my challenge.
Today I relied on myself.
You see, I was getting cluttered on my desk, so I thought I should
Go ahead and clean it off.
Then it dawned on me......
How about I challenge myself to use ONLY what is on my desk to create an art journal page.
Here's the end result, and how I got there!
First some inspiration:
I just love all the fun colors!

This is all the "stuff" on my desk!
Thank god for some paints!
Oh, and is that a box ofgelatos I spy?
I found this page in my journal already,
Out takes from previous pages.
(I can't just waste all that yumminess!)
I layered on gelatos, 
And bits and bobs leftover from a recent Dina Wakley class!
Oh, and I was so excited to find my dylusions stamps on the desk
Cause well, cause they made a fine border! 
Here's a close up of the finished girl with a bit of journaling around her.
And that lovely orange (oh gelatos how I love you!) on the other side! 
I added a bit of white to my stamped border.
I don't know about you all, but I had a LOT of fun creating this page,
And will now be cleaning up my desk! 

I'm entering into these challenges:
Faber castell: art journal with inspiration


  1. LOL! I think there are a few more empty spots on your desk than mine, right now! Your pages look terrific and the inspiration photo is beautiful too!

  2. Just wanted to stop by and say congrats on winning Mou's challenge at the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft blog. Love seeing what's on your desk, especially the Crunch tin full of gelatos. Fun page, love all your bits and bobs. I can see you really enjoy creating in your art journal. Love your page.


Thank you for all your comments! They are the cherry on top of my sundae!
