WOYWW January 4th 2012

Hey it's the first What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday of 2012!

Have I mentioned how much I enjoy this blog hop hosted by the most fabulous Julia Dunnit over at Stamping Grounds?

Sorry it's a little dark, my desk is black and I stood on my chair to take a picture from above...LOL!
Fun stuff on my desk today!  I just got in a big order of paper.  You wouldn't think I'd need more but I did need lots of white, white, white for my next doggy commission, a delightful all white Westy.   Isn't that white paper with the circles just scrumptious?  Here's a close up:


In the right hand corner you get a sneak peek at the barn owl I created over the last two days from hand torn paper.  He's just sitting on the raw, primed canvas that needs to be painted for him.  I'm quite proud of this fellow.  Here's a close up.

He is comprised of all sorts of different papers.  The main paper I used for his white feathery look was this handmade Thai Paper called Lace Window Panes.


Well that's what's going on in my world and on my studio table today.   I'm so happy you stopped by!

That's beautiful - I haven't seen paper used like that before. And I love the stuff with the circles on, too! I have some handmade paper tucked away somewhere - wonder if I can do something with it now?

I love owls and I really really love this one, I have an artist friend who does torn paper art and her work is very popular, its something I have dabbled in and is very challenging, you are the master at this technique! Wow, lovely papers, I can tell how much you love doing this by the excitement in your words ,, beautiful.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Your owl is fabulous! It is hard to conceive that the lace window pane paper would make sure a great creation. I think it is because of all the squares I don't see it as anything but straight lines. Great work!
