WOYWW #192 - An A to Z of Me

February is my chance to do another Art Journal Challenge. I am following the A to Z of Me Challenge run by Bernice - do pop over to have a look, there is a daily prompt and technique. Just doing my next page in the photo, the previous day is on the tag, the left over salt from that technique in the foil bowl.

I'm trying to use up previously diecut letters which are in the little bags in my tidy tray, great for tipping each bag out to hunt for the ones I need. My finished page is here.

And if you are wondering why on earth I am displaying my desk for all to see, then go to Julia's place and you'll see I'm not alone, far from it, but be warned if you decide to join in the frolics it is highly addictive!

Nice desk today! I gave up on a lot of die cuts the other day. I have been shifting them here and there and finally tossed them cause I was tired of messing with them. Luckily I still have the die to cut more so it is just a time and paper waste. Have a great week. Vickie #33

Hi there, just popping by to say hello; I should be working so it's a bit of a mad dash around this week so don't pop the kettle on for me. I too have piles of die cuts waiting, half the time I forget where I've put them and cut another!

Julia Dunnit said...

Ooh Bj this is an interesting journey you're on...am loving the idea..even visited and bookmarked the page...unheard of for me, I'm rubbish at commiting! Meanwhile, love that the little drawers and boxes that you store things in are all decorated, such detail gives the eye great pleasure!

Hi there, BJ, just a quick visit to see what you are up to. Unfortunately, the EM is unwell and needs looking after so time is limited today. Popped over to see your finished page and it's beautiful - like the effect of the Stazon bubble-wrap. Hope your WOYWW has been happy. Elizabeth x #55

Jackie said...

I think keeping all the letters then using them up now is very organised well done you!
