Finally I got the photos off the SD card.
My 2 desks.
I am in the middle of making travel journals for my up and coming trip to Africa. Also I am finishing off my swap commitments. 
The Wednesday mad dash is still open to those snoopworthy folk so hop over to our red leader Julia and have some fun.

Autumn Postcard swap for my swap partner. Hope she likes it

 Wednesday again. Late posting today as I have started using pain patches and I am trying to get used to them so not much has changed on my desk as I am crafting in the living room. I wish I had  thought of labelling my baskets like Julia. I get a load of stuff out for one project and lately it is not getting put back.
If you have visited for the first time please run    to Julia's blog and join in the Wednesday snoop.

Covered 2 old book covers for my Art Journal. 
Got to add some ink and bellies now. My tissue tape isn't sticking very well:-(

I will keep adding art to the Dress Form. 
I added too many tags. LOL
Maybe tomorrow.
My artsy tags which were an experiment with Glimmer Sprays, Gesso, Distress Inks, Paint and Stamping. A little more blending and
they will be ready for journalling.
Can you tell I like Pink?

New Journal Pages I Love Lucy

I haven't worked on my journal for awhile. So I am sharing what I did today.
I had collected some Lucy ephemera over the years and read her autobiography a few months ago. I used to watch the show after school in the 60's. You can still catch her on Youtube.
 The stamps are from The Stampsmith.

Here we are again for the Wednesday Dash. Today I have been crafting in the kitchen. I cut loads of pages out of a roll of canvas. I set up my spray booth and had a blast. My hands were inky too and I have some lovely colourful paper towels.
The lighting is not too good in the kitchen. The pages are very colourful. They are ready for painting, stamping, inking, collaging and writing. I made some covers but cannot locate the photo at the moment.
Jump right into the fun and head over to our leader's blog for more snooping.
