Here we are again on the weekly round of desks starting with Julia Dunnit's Stamping Ground. Follow the link to see desks and tools, people and their ideas from many parts of the world.
This week I have my new journal on the desk. I went to a workshop with my long-time supplier up in Melbourne, Kathy. She has a few people who run very pleasant and instructive workshops which I enjoy and this Saturday was exceptionally good. Kathy has wanted to run an Artist's Journal class for ages. Roll on the rest of the classes.
I've been making notes about what we did and putting some finishing touches that there was not time to fiddle with. The journal is made with rag paper and was supplied as part of the class. We created four pages in which we explored some materials and techniques. You can see the journal standing in this photo which shows the rough edges of hand-pulled paper. To the left is a greeting card and some other cards illustrating StampScapes sent to me by Shaz in Oz. Thank you most kindly! On the right are a couple of purchases - the Penny Black stamp used in the journal, a Cuttle Hug, and some little cheap'n'cheerful stamps.

All the best for the week until next time.
