Hello everyone, happy Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday.
No desk today (or Man Bites Dog cards), sorry but I was on holiday all last week (hence the scheduled post last week) with no internet which meant that I didn't really get round to many desks and this week are long shifts at work so only a quick post!
Part of the reason for being on holiday last week (SO lucky with the weather, the first time in 4 years we have had sunny weather all week on our UK holiday!!) was to attend the Devon Guild of Craftsmen Contemporary Craft fair. 3 days of the most beautiful craft and art. Everything from gold and silver work, stone masonry, paintings, felt etc. Meeting the makers and buying direct is such a lovely way to purchase new art (some pieces were only £1.50....others were THOUSANDS!!).
After the WOYWW crop the other week, Donna kindly gave me a spare lino cutting handle (as mine has broken) and I promised to use it and experiment.
So, true to my word....I enrolled on a one off lino cutting session!
My first piece was a mark making experiment and I decided to cut ploughed fields with a fence. My second piece was a seed head (I am a big Angie Lewin fan!). I must admit I am a bit hooked now!!
Also in the photo is a painting pad head from poundland! At the crop Shaz' top tip was to use it as a stamp cleaner (a little like the considerably more expensive Stampin' Up one!) so I took myself off and bought one! I have not tried it yet (too busy to craft since I got back off holiday) but I will let you know how I get on.
Right....off to finish unpacking from the holiday!!
