WOYWW

This WOYWW meme is rating right up there in my mind with some great gardening memes.  My regular readers know I love to garden and also try my hand at different art/craft techniques.  On Wednesdays over at Stamping Ground you can join and post What's On Your Work Desk....all desks, kitchen tables, couches, coffee tables, and I have even seen an ironing board, as a work space are welcome.

Random collages using ceramic tile, they are fun to work with...hopefully I'll get better as I plug along.
On the kitchen table, inks, case of mason jars filled with jewelry making tidbits, tools, papers, rhinestones....you get the picture, literally. (wink)

This tile has been inked, and embellished with paper, rub-ons and rhinestones then sealed with mod podge...today it will get a coat of Dimensional Magic.

This is my first collage tile..a gift to one of our daughter's Art teacher.  Same concept as above.  See how shiny it is?  That's the dimensional magic.  Photo below, all tissued up and ready to be delivered.  She loved it by the way....
Note:  I apologize for not visiting very much this week.  (I plan to correct that)  We have had a detour in our life's journey as of late.  My in-laws are adjusting to moving into an assisted living facility and some health issues have come up...I have been trying to help make sure their needs are met.  God willing they will celebrate their 59th wedding anniversary on the 29th, (my husband's birthday too)

I see a artist finding her voice through what she creates.

Beautiful.

Hope all is well with inlaws, we are going through our own family health difficulties lately.

Ooh! The butterfly tile is so wonderful! The other one is too but I find the butterfly tile so soothing. I love that shiny look of the dimensional magic, that really makes a great finish. Love the view of all the bits and bobs lying around too.

Oh, I do like your works of art Darla. These tiles are beautiful, and I love the sentiment you used, the earth without Art. Love it.

Your work desk always looks interesting!
The 29th is our anniversary (19 this year). 59 is awesome. I send them blessings on our shared day. May they get settled and all be well.

Becky said...

It is so sad to watch our parents go downhill. I know it was very hard for me. They are lucky they have you to look after them. Many of our seniors do not have that. Thank you!

Lovely tiles, Darla!

Change can be hard, hugs and prayers for you and your family.

Wow your tile's are beautiful. My favorite one is with the sentiment about God rejection and redirection. You did a beautiful job and thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

Understand that life gets in the way of blogging, how wonderful for your in-laws to have each other still.
Love the tile about 'art'.
