Welcome to the weekly joining in with WOYWW, sharing desks from all around the world, and hosted by Julia at Stamping Ground. The first week of the holidays went quickly and I am starting to relax.Regular visitors will notice the neck fan that has appeared on my desk. The heat has been somewhat unbearable for a few hours around noon and the neck fan helps take the edge off a little.
No Eva today. I have been sorting out the KS2 curriculum and should finish today. She should be popping over tomorrow, as I am rewarding myself with a crafty day before getting stuck into KS3. STay safe and Happy WOYWW. I'll pop and see everyone today or tomorrow morning.

I love the effect of stamping in a light coloured Distress Oxide then watercolouring over the top of the image. I made this thank you card using the June 2021 Clarity New Design Club stamp offering.

I like to have cards for all occasions ready in my stash. I was out of wedding cards, so decided to make one using the May 2021 Clarity New Design Stencil club offering.

Monday was freedom day only in the sense that it is the school holidays. I know that I and many of you are continuing with the mask wearing in shops and on public transport, as well as maintaining social distancing. I know that I felt very uneasy watching the scenes at nightclubs on the news, especially as there are so many under thirties who have chosen not to get vaccinated. Anyway enough of that, you are here to visit my desk as part of the weekly link up with WOYWW, hosted by Julia at Stamping Ground.So here it is in all its glory, getting ready for some daily drawing. I still have some of the items I used on projects yesterday when Eva came over to visit and craft.
I am setting this up to post automatically so I don't have to get up too early. However, as it has been so warm, I may be up and around early anyway. Stay safe and happy WOYWW.

Having passed the half way point of 2021, I am now closer to the end of my new year's resolution challenge than the start. I find that I am finding it easier to come up with ideas for prompts and also more confident in drawing my own ideas rather than using tutorials or copying images that I find online. Here is the fist half of July!An easy one to start the month.HERE).

I love grunge and a selection of rainbow coloured Distress Oxides. Here I combined the colours with one of the linocut distressed backdrop stamps from Clarity to create a colourful but grungy card.

I layered up some of the newest Mixed Impressions Texture stamps from Claritystamp in masculine colours to create this Good Luck card.

Welcome to my weekly desk share via the lovely Julia at Stamping ground as I join in with What's On Your workdesk, Wednesday? on the last Wednesday of the school year. I have no marking this week as I am using online French and German activities relating to Euro 2020 with my classes. Sad that we didn't win but encouraging resilience with the pupils.The only thing that changes on my early morning desk is how far along I am with my daily drawings.
