I made this page in revolt after watching a resolutely gloomy news bulletin which left me wondering why good stuff wasn't being reported? My Beloved adores that "Extreme Makeover" TV programme because its all about good things happening, people helping their friends and neighbours, and lives generally being turned around for the better. There's a lot of it out there but you never hear about it ....
I began by laying down waves of colour using my water soluble crayons, and adding some stamped and coloured images. Don't ask me why these particularly wacky images - no real reason I just like them! Then I added the words "good news" in the middle of the page and began to write around them.
And it sort of just went on from there - I leave spaces where they seem to need to be, or draw things in them if not, it just grows really. Most of the colour apart from the background here is done with my Promarkers.
This will be my last post for a couple of weeks because I'm off on my travels again - to Greece this time. Yes I do know that I've just come back from Florida (and its not ideal to be go away again so soon, honest), but if you're thinking "lucky thing" stop right there! The downside is that I'm going in order to keep my sister company, and she is bossy. Very Bossy. Nuff said .... wish me luck and pray that I keep my temper!
