Wanderlust - Everything Art - February challenge

This online course I am following is great - I get to watch the videos as they come out but haven't caught up with all the lesson prompts... you can join up here 
However, the February challenge did speak to me.  We were asked to find a pattern in something around us that we liked, and use it as inspiration for a journal page

 I used the new scarf my boss gave me this week..
 and the new Coral Fresco


 with some crackle glaze and then lines of Snowflake and Carribean Sea Frescos
 and vertical lines of White Fire fresco (love this colour)
 and some pen work

and the new Everything Art stamp set
and some scribbly circles in aquamarine archival ink (an Emma Godfrey stamp)

love the coral fresco underneath the crackle layer!

I love that crackle effect, Helen, and lovely colours too. Thank you for your visit, and if you are happy working on the floor, that's good! Wherever you work, you come up with some beautiful stuff! As for me not overdoing things, I'm afraid I've overdone things again today - making samosas which didn't turn out right... oh well, better next time I hope! My hubby was very nice about it but they were hard work to make, and very hard work to eat lol!

Happy WOYWW,
