I have a beautiful wooden desk in my art studio where I work on my computer, doing sketching and more. It’s too nice a piece to go with my paint splattered folding tables and Ikea bookshelves, but it didn’t fit in our New York apartment when we moved so I got to use it in my studio instead.
I wanted to protect the surface from scratches where I slide my computer in and out of the way, so I taped down a large piece of drawing paper in that area. I use it to write down short notes or unconsciously doodle/stamp/stencil on it. When one side gets full, I flip around the sheet and continue filling up the opposite side. I looked down today for a place to add another note and realized it was completely full…no empty space available. Obviously, it’s time for a new blotter sheet! Maybe I’ll save this one to use in some of my collage work. 🙂
