Here is my desk with two of the photo blocks I have re-purposed.
Photo blocks are kind of like a wooden canvas. They are a hardboard version. In the 80's it was very popular to glue photos onto these blocks to hang them on the wall in all sizes from small to poster size. Now they print directly onto canvas instead and block that.
I was given these blocks from a student who did not need them in her business any more and so I have ripped off the photo and covered the left one in hessian (burlap) then added texture paste through a Tim stencil and painted the right one with a crackle technique, now I am contemplating the decorations I am going to add.
Yes, those are "industrial" sized jars of gesso, texture paste and acrylic gel medium you see piled on the left!
The new blue clock is one I got yesterday at the Typo sale shop for R42! Down from R179! I am tempted to alter it...it is cheaper to buy this than Tims one which I have been dying to get!
So that's me.
See you at your desk
