I Have a Sad Story to Tell

You see, today is Wednesday. And that means that it is What's On Your Workspace Wednesday. As my regular readers know...this is the day when I show you my messy desk. Yes, I say messy because it nearly always is piled high with creative findings and such. Well, the thing is, today...it is NOT messy. It is rather tidy, actually.

But that's not the sad part. The sad part is ... well, *sigh* I forgot to upload my photo, so I can't even show it to you!!!! THAT is sad! It is so pretty and straightened and you can't even see it! *DOUBLE SIGH* Now THAT is a sad story. Just say'n. BUT...I will try REALLY hard to remember to add the photo tonight, K? K. Thanks. The NOT sad thing is that I have artwork to share with you today!

Cherub Heart


This sparkly little cherub piece is made from some SUPER FABULOUS goodies from Retro Cafe Art Gallery! I began with the Keyhole Hearts and COVERED them with Martha Stewart glitter! I {heart} glitter! Just say'n. Between the two hearts I layered an image from the Shabby Micro Slides Collage Sheet. You don't have to ONLY use these with slides!!!

A bit more glitter (stickles)adds some color and sparkle to the tiny hearts from the Heart mix set. I used a bit of Tim Hotz Tissue Tape to keep the brightness level in check...it was getting a little blinding all up in there! HA! And then simply added some pretty pearls!

Kiss


To finish the piece I used red wire to attach a tiny Tim Holtz hanger to the top and a Tim Holtz Word Stick, painted with some gold paint and mottled, to the bottom to hang. I kind of like how it all turned out! I haven't had my hands in assemblage and mixed media in awhile and it felt good to do that again! I actually have a couple more projects in the works, so I am looking forward to sharing those with you, too! YAY for fun stuff!!!!

So...while I don't have my desk shot for you YET today...I at least have this fun little goodness! And if you are looking for some GREAT supplies for Valentine's projects you MUST check out Retro Cafe Art! SO MUCH GOODNESS!!!!! OH! And they are having a contest AND a giveaway right now, so don't forget to check out the blog! AWESOMENESS all around, folks. Awesomeness. all. around. Just say'n.

Jingle Out!

ETA: Here you go, folks! And...I believe if you click on the photo you will be taken to my Flickr page where you can see the time stamp! PROOF, BABY, PROOF! LOL!

I love this - it's gorgeous! Jo x

Anne Marie Gross said...

Very pretty and sparkly and fun! But I have to say that your story is NOT sad at all. It's creative karma trying to tell you that your work desk is not meant to be tidy ... she's trying to say that you have an amazing gift of creating beauty from chaos. So don't fight it! ;-)

Princess Judy Palmer said...

OHMIGAWD! Indeed a tidy desk. I know what you mean about you have to share that quick because it never lasts.

Great heart piece and the more of it you showed the better it got--great gobs of glitter everywhere, the cool insert in the keyhole, the tape and pearls and then the tiny hanger!!! So much to love about it.

Electra said...

OK, but what does the floor look like? Huh? I llve the way your little cherub is peeking out of the keyhole. Great piece!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

It's been fun checking out your incredibly clean desk this week. I'm thrilled to be back online and look forward to many more visits. Of course, I about flipped out over that hanger from TH!! Loved it and the heart, too.

Happy WOYWW (#3).
