What was on my work desk this past week.

Hi everyone,

It has been almost a month since I last posted something...needless to say, life has been very busy and I haven't had much time to play.

Having said that, I have had a few little projects on the go which need to be completed by...yesterday! Well, at least by the end of the month.

In the paperarts group I belong to, this month's ATC swap theme was "Altered Celebrity" where basically you put one celeb's head on another's body.  My first idea had been Albert Einstein's head on Lady Gaga's head...but as another particpant's contribution was very similar to my idea, I had to change tack.  So in the end I went with "George Monroe".

I may still add a little more bling to finish it off.

Another swap I'm involved in, this time a mixed media one (which is not my usual M.O) is creating a 5" x 5" fat book basically in vanilla and latte (black and white being permissible) with one other colour only allowed.  This month's theme was "Doors/Doorways".  So this is what I've come up with so far....but I'm not quite seems too basic and I feel I really need to add some more to give it some zing!  So if any of you have any suggestions...I'll gladly accept them.

Here is the front

And this is the page once the door is opened...

I decided to use a shade of red...which, those of you how know me or have been following my blog for a while, will know it is my favourite colour.

As it has been extremely hot here in Australia, I have had to move back into the house to work on my latest here is what my work desk is looking like...very crowded and very untidy...but it works.

Well, I guess that is all for is actually Thursday here in is also Australia Day, which is our national holiday...a bit like the 4th of July in the US, so I'm off to try and keep cool (it is a warm 42 degrees Celcius today (107.6 on the Fahrenheit scale) was 39 on Tuesday, 41 yesterday, forcast 42 for Saturday with no rest until it drops to 38 (100.4) on Tuesday and Wednesday... and finish reading the biography on Dave Grohl (my other husband!  lol). We may even finish the evening off with a BBQ and watch the annual fireworks display.

Well, I guess that's summer on the west coast of Australia!!!  HOT!  (Thank the Lord for air conditioners)

Until next time.
