WOYWW - new stuff, teacups and tulips

A few weeks ago I came across a creative meme that is called What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. It is all about showing what is going on on your workdesk and is hosted by Julia from Stamping Ground. I really like participating, because it is an easy way to show you what I have been working on, and it is fun to visit some other participants :)

This week I have some random bits and pieces and I will show you what I made at school last week.

I added some new bits and pieces to my snailmail stash. I went for the owl washi tape, but also ordered some new address labels, stickers and gift bags. They were too cute to pass. I bought these at Vlinders in je buik.

This is a part of a tea cup and pot related swap I made this week. I really liked making these tea related goodies :) I always love how nice mail turns out when it is all in one theme :)

This is the work I made at school last week. It is in the zen theme and made with pastels. There were tables in the middle of the classroom with flowers and other nature pieces on there. The assignment was not about painting the perfect flowers, but to look at the colors and work from there. Look where it is dark, where it is light and work from there. The next step was to bring something abstract into the piece to make it more interesting. I thought it was a very fun assignment :) I love working with pastels, and from all the materials I work with, I am best with these. All though acrylics are also fun, as is working with clay. As you can see my desk is quite messy, but I had to shove my things to the sides to make room for the piece so I could take the picture :)

I am currently working on assignments away from the desk. Because we have to work outside this time, but more on that next week :)
