she longed to fly away...


some more of my art journal pages for milliande. The first required us to use watercolours and add stripey stems to flowers..enjoyed doing this as havent really used watercolours before and am happy with the result as I have combined it with some of my fav stamps. The journalling reads "she longed to fly away with the arrival of the birds"....I often "fly away" by doing art & yoga ..how do you "fly away"?



This second page is called "millipede mum" as we were required to draw a whimsical milllipede!! something completely different from zebras but they still use zetti stripey legs. I liked drawing the purple dreadlocks..I would love to have purple dreadlocks. I enjoyed using the paper stumps with the portfolio pastels here to get the blending right.
