My workspace today. I haven't got much done as I was at the hospital in the next town having a pre-op. I am having spinal surgery in 2 weeks.
I keep mounting batches of UM's on foam core board. This stuff is very cheap at Art shops. It is easy to cut with a craft knife and metal ruler. I glue the UM's on, then stamp on paper and glue the picture on the other side.
Lots of crafty folk share their workspaces on WOYWW. Hop over for a snoop.

I did this late one night when I could not sleep. It is a large stamp for my journal.

WOYWW 180 a little late

This was my workspace on my friends dining table.
I could not upload the photo yesterday as her computer would not speak to my SD card.
Visit Julia's blog our Wednesday hostess for more snooping.

I made a few cards for a change.

Lino Cutting Workshop

 Went to a lino cutting workshop yesterday with my 
good friend Jo in Castleton, Rochdale.
Lucy our teacher was very helpful and our class was well organised with lots of inspiration. I thoroughly enjoyed my day and made 2 stamps.

Me cutting my quirky house. I learned not to use a soft pencil as your image gets smudged. I had to improvise a little.

 My 2 stamps.
Thanks also to Lynn who went for lunch, provided biscuits, crisps, cups of tea and more.

Silent Screen Journal Pages

I used scraps, findings and die cuts.
I painted and spritzed and I am happy with the way they turned out.
There are a lot of layers and look so much better in the flesh.
The light is not good today as it is dark and raining.
