Workdesk Wednesday {we have a WINNER!}

Happy Wednesday! Happy to report that my pain is nearly 100% gone. Such a blessing today. Soooo much to share today so let's get to it!!:)

Today is Wednesday and for the past 5 or so I have been participating in What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday. I LOVE it and hope you enjoy seeing my MESS today...truly it is one big mess...

I haven't been able to create for the last 5 days or so...haven't even had time to clean it up...

All of this is driving me quite crazy and I'm ready to start sorting, binging and purging. Of course this is always so very good for YOU...I usually end up sharing my stash;)

So remember last week when I showed you these....?

And told you I needed to "shabby them up a bit"? I have and it was so wonderful.

Lots of acrylic paint, inks, stamps and Mod Podge. The next step is rub-ons, words, more stamps and more paint. I love texture and layers. My girl will come next, followed by more rub-ons, paint, ink and doodling. The whole process is fabulous.

Here is a finished girl..."Lizzy"....

We go from this...

to this...

to the finished product....

If you happened to stop by last Thursday you may remember I was celebrating my Blog being featured in our local paper with a Give Away...I had 16 this morning I went to Random Generator and the number 5 popped up....

Congrats to JOYCE!!  

I know...I never told you what exactly was up for grabs did I??

It's your very own personalized Brave Art Girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's the background she will be on....

Let me know, Joyce what kind and color of hair you want and if you have any favorite phrases or words or Bible verses!! You can contact me at

Girls, have a wonderful day...and remember if you want to see other work desks or share your own be sure and stop by Julie's Blog.
