Something Different

Standard

Some time ago …..

I’m always looking for something new to work with in my journal and sometimes¬† the most unexpected things show up. Like when I decided I needed to sharpen most of my inktense pencils.¬† I use them a LOT; I love the brightness of the colours and how easy they are to work with.

Anyway, the trash can was out of reach so I sharpened the pencils directly onto my journal page. Once done, I had an idea. What if I removed all the wood bits, leaving behind just the colours…and then spritzed with water?

I’ve been keeping written journals for a very long time. Rarely did I insert anything artsy – maybe the odd newspaper article, magazine pic, or doodle. Once in awhile I was inspired to draw … as I did here. Just ink on paper, and colored pencils for the flowers. My inspiration here came from a book on Unicorns. I like Unicorns…
