woyww - dark and dim wednesday evening

Wednesday did start with some degree of productivity then I got sidetracked with a postal delivery.  My TH book No.2 open on top of all the other bits and pieces.   But,  before I got distracted I had made a lovely background for a journal page using my favourite glimmermist sprays.  I then moved on to watching YouTube videos on how to paint flowers. My pathetic little result is on the right.  Even the teenager was encouraging "keep going you will get there eventually...!", which was very unlike the teenager.  

The only other thing on my desk is a list of all the class bits and pieces I need to bring to a weekend workshop at Pages 2scrap.  The classes are being run by Donna Downey and I  can't wait.  I have checked and rechecked the list.  I am trying to contain my glee at going away for the weekend to have 3 classes with Donna.   Hopefully I will have lots to show next week.

Off to visit Julia's woyww.....

  14. Your poppies don't look pathetic at all! I once watched Terry Harrison painting poppies at a craft fair, I wonder if he has a tutorial...

  17. I loved the narration of how your day went. I think a lot of us do that, start off on one thing, get distracted and jump to the next, and the next and the next.... It's a wonder we ever finish anything. I like your flowers!!

  22. I personally think your flowers are awesome. Much nicer than anything I can do. And I think your teen isn't giving you enough credit. I think they are already worthy!! Happy WOYWW from #4 this week.

  23. Didn't get round to any desks yesterday as I was out, gallivanting, so catching up a bit this morning.

    Don't run yourself down - those flowers look very good to me and I love poppies. Enjoy your workshop with DD, I think her YouTube vids are great so I'm very jealous.

    Thanks for calling by yesterday - much appreciated.

  25. I love your painted flowers. Have a great weekend, my time has flown by so playing catch up. Thanks for stopping by. Have fun with the Donna Downey event. Anxious to hear about the workshop, she was in Iowa but I had family commitments.
