Good morning folks.
A bit of a change to my desk today; it's on my lap! I am working on some pages where the focus is on pens and doodling so I was working in front of the telly last night (CSI) and kinda continued this morning. I'm sure normal chaos will resume next time but this is my desk today!
 All the essentials are here; Journal with prepared backgrounds, my Dylusions ink in fillable brushes and distress markers and an assortment of black and white pens!
 This is the page I am doing at the moment.
Then I drew out these alphabets so when I feel "lazy" I don't have to think I can use them as a jumping board. Though if you compare them to the letters used on the page, they are not exactly the same!

So there's my little mobile desk this morning; I'm sure if you hop on over to Julia's at Stamping Ground you'll find many more exciting places. Have a good week folks.

A lap is as good as a desk, lovely colours on your page, but I like so many are not good a lettering, but again if one would practice one would get better. Love Francesca #99

Loving the colours on your pages Neil and the lettering is super. Saw you over at JoZart's blog, how lovely that you got to meet up, if only for a short time, she is a lovely lady. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #82

Great lettering Neil. Glad you got your daughter off to Uni OK, she will be fine lol. I remember when my daughter went, I kept it together when I was with her and then cried half the way home!!!
Happy WOYWW and have a fun week.

Superb letters and journal work going on there! I'd love to work more on lettering but these days I'm thankful to just be able to hold a pen, with the help of some tubing! Take care Zo xx 109

Happy woyww, Ive not managed to link up again, not sure where the time is going at the moment.
Lettering/writing is the thing that scares me the most (or at least the bit I hate) about journalling. The lettering is looking great and the pages look fab. must catch up soon now life is calming down. mark
