A while 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 :)
My workdesk isn't always at home. Once a month I have a lesson at school. Today I am sharing pictures of my last school day and my workdesk there. We were learning a technique with fine sand (the one use you use in a birdcage.
We had to paint a colorful background at home to work on. I choose spring colors.
Then we had to mix the sand with gesso. Put a thick layer on there and make a pattern in it to bring back some color.
Paint to accent the pattern.
It is an interesting technique but very messy. I don't have pictures of the actual process because I didn't dare to take out my phone ;)
