What I Really Want - Wanderlust book prompt 2

I have been playing catch up with the second prompt for our Wanderlust book over the last few days and a large part of the inspiration comes from the very talented Chris who is also doing the course and a page she did in a circle journal challenge she's organising...  The prompt was simply "what I really want is..."

 I intended to go with many more layers originally, this is just gesso'd background and stencilling (large prima stencil)
 Created some black lines with Dylusions paint flowing across the pages

doodle and wrote with a large white Pitt  pen
 added some blue pastel ( a new purchase from Saturday, ) blended with finger and brush
this picture is taken with the daylight bulb as I'm too impatient to wait for some proper daylight..
 there is some Prima snowflake paste in the background but I can't get it to show up..
still a couple of challenges behind, but glad to have done this one!

Very striking colorus Helen. And three in the bag for a change, a bit nail biting at times but came right in the end.

Wow I can't believe that you are behind already, it's only just started, what are you going to do for the rest of the year - lol. Mind you, I guess when it gets lighter in an evening it much more relaxing and hopefully you will get time to play. I know what you mean though, as the minute it seems like all work and no play!!

Love the contrast of the bold black lines against the circle backdrop and the white lettering really pops . Tracy x

Oh very cool - I haven't managed anything with this prompt yet... too many things I want, but yes, more time to play is a very good call! Love the blue bubbled background and the black lines flowing across the page are fabulous. I'd've had kittens with something that bold, but I love how the white writing and doodling has made them come to life.
