WOYWW 399: Big Milestone

Well, only one week to a massive milestone for Julia as host of WOYWW over on The Stamping Ground.  A big milestone came to me this week, when I created my first art journal page without the aid of step by step prompts, merely one word: Portal.  You can see the step by step for this HERE, but I wanted to share my desk at the start of the process.  I was considering using the glasses stamp from Claritystamp or the Gilded Gate Two die from Spellbinders.  As you will see, I completely changed my mind on both counts.
As usual, this is a photo of my desk on a Tuesday, as once again the Wednesday desk is set up for marking and lesson preparation.  I haven't been very well over the last couple of weeks as the cold weather has been playing havoc with my asthma, but having seen the GP twice this week and on a high 7 day course of steroids, I seem to be getting through it.  My Tuesday craft sessions with a friend are my lifeline so once again I am sharing her side of the desk too.  She was working on the background for a set of party invitations for her niece and husband's joint birthday celebration.  Messy crafting as usual, but it's what we enjoy most.
Here's the finished Portal art journal page for Journal52.
