 I was cold so I worked in the lounge on the floor. Why am I sharing my workspace today? Well if you are curious go to Mrs Dunnit's blog where you can snoop to your hearts content. About 200 or so join in each week.
If you visit please leave a comment and I will return the favour.
I will try to get round as many as I can over the next few days.
I am journalling my holiday to Rome.I am using Pan Pastels for the background. I used some cheap perfume to seal them.
I have overstamped using my Frescoe Chalk Inkpads. I don't have many Roman  stamps but I am happy with it so far.
I bought a Polaroid Photo printer. Jo of Jozart enabled me. LOL
The small size of the photo is great for journals.

That Jo- she's a great enabler!! Love the idea of using Polaroids in your Rome album, bet you're enjoying re-living the trip. I could o longer work onthe floor than run a marathon Carol, too hard, too low, and abit chilly!!

That is one productive desk you have there! Why use perfume as a sealer? Doesn't it make splotches?

Would love for you to visit mine when you have a moment or 2.

Oh Carol...a holiday in Rome! How amazing would that be!?!

You're the second blog I visited this week that talked about pan pastels, and I must say I'm LOVING the look! I may have to do a little research into these!

Thanks for dropping by my place i'm not doing much crafting I cant justify spending ...those pastels look so much fun but the perfume bit confused me ....I've heard of hair spray for pastels though.xx8

Cheap perfume is useful for sealing the Pan Pastels. makes the pages smell nice too. It does not cause splotches.
It was a tip from a friend.

If I had a pound for everything I've bought because of a WOYWWer.... I'd have a lot more money to spend on crafts!! I couldn't work on the floor, I'd never get up again! It's cold here too, 4C and we had a frost too. Had to have the heating on this morning.
