Wanderlust book prompt 3 - write lots...

Friday saw another prompt in the Wanderlust Book challenge run by Everything Art.. "write lots" ...

Regular readers of my blog will know that my journalling doesn't usually include much writing, it's not my "thing" but in the interests of following the challenge... here goes.

Kasia made some great videos (it's not too late to sign up to this year long on line class - I'm already way behind
working in my large journal I've set aside for this part of the course, I added some black and white gesso to the page, and some torn book pages, pen scribbling.....

 added some stencilling (new Fresco colours - zucchini and white fire) and some texture fibre paste,
 drew some lines to write between
 and started writing...
I decided to limit my colours to black, white and green.



I can't for the life of me get a decent picture of the full page, sorry!

Despite the writing - not my actual writing, that's not too bad - the words mainly, being nothing much - I am pleased with this overall page.

It's always a mystery to me how a square piece of work never looks that way in a photo, I've tried all sorts to achieve that.

Really liking the hues of green and white against the black, very striking.

Hope you are braced for this afternoon, not a happy bunny at all that the blues are now breathing down our necks.

Sorry, it's taken me ages to get here, Helen! I'm so behind with commenting atm. This is great! I really like the colour palette you chose. I've been trying to use more writing on my journal pages too on account of starting the Storyteller's Art course! I think what you created here looks really good. Well done! xx

Love how the black, white and green look together - so fresh and modern - and the whole page looks so full of energy and life.
