Mojo found! (WOYWW)

This is my entry to WOYWW this week. However, although my desk is looking remarkably tidy again this week, it has actually seen some action for once.  I had all my paints and stencils out to make the journal page that is shown on the desk.  I haven't really done much 'free form' art journaling and so this was a lot of fun.  I have decided that this little book is going to be a complete experimental book where anything goes and it doesn't matter if I don't like some pages.  As usual I have a trusty mug of tea keeping my company. Propped up at the back of the desk is a playing card, which will be incorporated into my Dad's Father's day card (he is a bridge player) and a wedding invitation we have been sent.
Here is the close up of that journal page...it is the first time I have really played with inks, paints, stencils and masking in this way and was great fun in the making. 
I also received some happy post this week, in the form of this ATC and card from Krisha as part of the 5 year anniversary swap. Aren't they gorgeous!  That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone,
Love
Caro

Hi Caro,

You need to make a mess your desk is screaming at you play with me and create. Enjoy that cup of tea while pondering your next creation.

Happy WOYWW

Hi Caro, I am guessing you know that Julia is ill but I don't think it's anything too bad, LLJan has the info.
I love your journal page. I use my journal to try things out, it's kind of my private place so it doesn't matter how it turns out.
Happy crafting, Angela @Felix the Crafty Cat x

Hello Caro. Thanks for popping by. Lovely to see you. Like your journal page - I am doing a sort of journal. Trying to follow weekly prompts. I'm way behind but enjoying it and not stressing. How's your DH and Gran? Anne x

Your desk is way too tidy this week. I just wish I could find even the regulation 6 square inches in which to work, but that is the job for next week. I am too busy this week, unpacking from one workshop and packing up for the next. thank you for your visit this week and your lovely comments. Have a good week with your mojo. xx Maggie
