116th What's on your Workdesk Wednesday - no gesso, sorry Rachel!


Partway through working on this journal page the postman brought me a parcel -


... some Milton Bradley Flashcards I won on Ebay :)  So the theme for my page became numbers; I added a selection of rub ons by 7 gypsies alongside one of the numbers from a card.  There's also a snippet from the customs label.


I'm LoViNG working in these small journals.    I used my Dylusions paints on a pre-gessoed page in my tiny Gorjuss notebook :)


This page, however, has no gesso in sight!


This is my passport size one by Muji, again pre-gessoed from Kate's class the other day.

More busy workdesks available over at The Stamping Ground hosted by the wonderful Mrs Dunnit :)

Given your pages are so gorgeous, the lack of gesso is forgiven! I love going round seeing what everyone's doing and being inspired. Thank you for inspiring me.

Oh, and given you live in Sale and I live in Withington, maybe we should have a play date sometime. I promise not to force gesso on you!

I really love your pages and must admit I am trying very hard not to get into journalling as I know I'll be obsessed. I'll make do with drooling over other blogger's pages.
So pleased and relieved you received (and like) the matchbox I sent. I'm off to Germany to see the little one in the morning! So excited!
love Jo x

Fabulous pages Sarah. Enjoy your new cards.xx The rub-ons look great. I especially love your butterflies.

Gosh, I don't think I've been to Sale since I was a child..we used to own a narrow boat.. I always remember the water being orange at Worsley!

For some reason I thought this was week 117. I must have gotten confused with all those numbers (grin). Your pages are adorable. I really LOVE the backgrounds and the colors, which I don't seem to have. Happy day after WOYWW.
