I like to keep a cheap sketch book for mopping up spills of ink, or ink left over on a stencil - a tip I learned from the wonderful Dina Wakley, and you can probably see that this page began life as a spillage of ink! I added extra and colour to the background with Dylusions paints, and then added the very quirky 'Bard'. As he looks like he has his hands outstretched to catch something I added a few balls for him to catch (or drop!), and then added a slightly sinister row of crows, along with my words:
And here's a journal page in progress..... I forced myself to use purple 'cos I don't do purple! Not sure why .... I like it when I see what other people have done with the colour but I find it tricky. Now all I need to do is journal on this ....

Keep an eye on my blog over the next few days ..... I've got a couple of give-aways coming up..... one give-away because there is something exciting happening over at Traplet publications, and one because I can't help but notice that I am nearly, very nearly, at 800 followers. Just saying, that's all..........
Byeee for now.
