WOYWW 586 - What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday?


It's Wednesday and I am showing you my desk again...linking this post to the Stamping Ground.

Thanks again to those of you who visited last week and thanks for your kind comments!
I hope I managed to visit you - and leave a comment, if rather brief...

Here's my desk picture for WOYWW 586!

I am showing a different surface today - what can you spot?

The orange journal hanging at the right hand side is the thing I have spent 5 days making during the last week - all the details were posted on my blog but here are some of the pages: 



This old photo is of my grandmother as a children's nurse; the second old photo is of me with my sister behind...

I have now moved on to an Altenew course all about stencils. I don't have many Altenew stencils but I am substituting! 
One technique I liked was putting texture paste through a stencil and adding alcohol inks or marker re-inkers.

That's all for today - Happy WOYWW!

Oh and just one more thing today - time lapse video of our back yard...


  1. Hi Susan, I found you via last week's link as yours goes back the the WOYWW page this week. Gorgeous journal pages. Like the look of that stencil technique too. Stay safe and happy WOYWW Sarah #4

    1. oh - I wonder if I can change it...

    2. Have added it again as I couldn't find how to edit...

  2. I love the bright orange colour of the journal pages, what a great selection of art you've been doing, you must have really enjoyed crating them! Love the video too, what a lovely place you live in.

  3. I love all your projects this week, Susan! So varied, so beautiful. What talent!! Thank you for your two comments on my blog and for your kind words. I hope your hubby tries the flatbreads - let me know what you think! So glad I raised a laugh with the raspberry. I couldn't resist doing that. Our neighbour loved it!!

    Happy WOYWW,
