A CHANGE OF TEMPO ...

It's been interesting to me that my first experiments in art journalling have generally been very bold and bright - yet my number one favourite style has always been vintage/shabby chic. What I've never understood is why my efforts in this direction nearly always end up brown (I'm just naturally attracted to Sepia?) and I struggle to use a wider colour palette? I loved making this page but it's taught me two things - 1. when I try to do vintage I should try harder to break out of brown and 2. I have a tendency to write straight across the page, so need to think outside the box more and write in circles or whatever. Never mind, so much art to explore and so little time .....
