WOYWW - Art Journaling

Fellow WOYWW bloggers and followers, thank you for all the love last week!

Here is my desk (after many piles were moved). 
Living in a 320 square foot apartment means that my desk has multiple uses and for the past couple of weeks it has served as a collecting space for mail, magazines, collected art supplies, and other random "I'm not sure what to do with this" stuff. (Secret, I finished my sketchbook by creating a workspace on my bed.)

So, here is my desk this week:

I recently purchased a journal at a discount and I decided that my first page was going to be a reminder to myself. This journal is going to be a place for me to play with paints, inks, stamping, etc.

Be Brave

I'm not sure what it is about the blank page but sometimes I can stuck on it. 
Does a blank page ever intimidate you?

By the way, if you missed my post on Monday you can find it here. Monday was my 300th post and I'm giving away one of my photographic prints to one of you who comment on that post. So hop over and leave a comment. 

I'm linking up with Julia's WOYWW. I encourage you to visit a few desks for inspiration.


  1. 320 square feet! Wow! I thought my condo was small at 900 square feet! It just shows if you are creative you can do it anywhere!

  2. Definitely agree about the intimidation level of a sheet of blank paper/card! It just sits there, smugly challenging you, lol.Have a great week, Hugs Shaz xx #73

  3. Love the journal and if you have to find other spaces to craft in so be it us crafters can do amazing things in the tiniest of places

  5. Happy WOYWW. Loving that journal page. Blank paper - yes, a bit scary, but it is only paper, so jump right in! Ali x #93

  6. Good luck with your journal and if that blank page intimidates you again turn back to page one and Be Brave!!!
    Happy WOYWW

  7. Good luck with your journal page it's looking good
    Less living space means less cleaning more crafting!!

  8. I love your journal page, but I do have a question. Where are you sleeping, now that everything has been moved to your bed? Just kidding, LOL.
    Have fun with your new journal; you are such a talented girl.
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  9. yes i definately find a blank page a challenge, what to do? where to start? I'm not really a planner either i just have a rough Idea of what i want to do .... then make something completely different he he. lovely colours, good luck with the journal.

  11. Great way to start the journal - and such a true thing to write - If I could give my younger self some advice, this page would be amongst the important words, believe me! Blank page syndrome....oh yes.

  12. we have 1100 sq ft and my desk still ends up covered with all that same stuff. you are a wonder Lori. looking forward to seeing you play in your new journal! xx

  13. Nah, not intimidated by the blank page - just spill something on it and go from there!
