Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

Tuesday, May 14, 2013


Thanks for dropping by to see what's up on my desk for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!
It's been a LONG day, so I haven't played at my desk today, but here's where I left it yesterday.
These are some ATC's I'm doing for the Self-Portrait swap at ATC's For All. They're supposed to show some of my interests, and hopefully don't have to actually look like me!

My desk...

and a close-up of the ATC's...

On my slant-top desk you'll find a sketchbook in which I'm jotting down some zentangle patterns...

It's late and I'm ex-HAUSTED, so I'll make this short and sweet as per Julia's instructions. You can find a list of more desks to visit at her blog called The Stamping Ground. Take a virtual world tour and have fun peering at desks! ;)



  1. Hi there! Thanks for dropping by :-)
    I love the pen portraits on the ATCs....are you going to colour them in? Because I think they're fab just as they are!
    Hugs, LLJ 29 xx

  2. I've been making some ATC's too for the swap on Willowing. It's fun - I've never worked on that small scale before :)

  13. Hi Lisa!
    I am sooooo sorry I am late! I just "rescued" you from my spam folder! I am one of those people who always checks the spam folder before dumping it. See why?
    Lovely ATC's and I have missed Zentangling!! Perhaps I should pick it back up again? Hopefully!


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
