WOYWW - 20,000 Leagues !

So, not masses on my desk this week but to the left is yesterday's weekly lesson from my Life Book 2012 course - this one is about collaging your hopes & aspirations for this year.

In the middle is the Triangular Box I had gesso'd up last week - I kept asking it what it wanted to be - and at last it said "a 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea piece please" !
So outside will be the scene under the sea - it was the Octopus that swung it for me !!! - and the inside a sort of Steampunk of the inside of the ship .. just the paint basecoats done so far but Rich has 2 days of football this weekend - so I have a lovely weekend as a football widow to play at my painty creative stuff !!

On the right is a photo sheet with some shots I took at the museum in Jersey last summer - fabulous steampunk inspiration that I knew would be handy one day !
The box (which had Chocs in it which Rich munched happily !) has a lovely magnetic snap down flap - isn't it just waiting to be altered for something !!

Well off to play in my journal & sketch a few plans for 20,000 Leagues box !!


  1. Hi There, found you via Milliande today, and thought I'd hop on over and take a gander. This 2012 life book sounds like a great adventure. Can't wait to see more results of your playing!

  2. Your Life Book course sounds very interesting. I do like the steampunk inspired photos it will be great inspiration for any future projects.

    I'm seeing how many I can get round this way.then when I have finished I'll come back again, that is if I can STOP reading all the posts first Happy WOYWW
