Here's a page that might make you laugh - it did me, I was chuckling all the time I was making it!.
Sometimes my pages are about big, important things, and sometimes
they're not - at least this subject is important to me, but not of
life-changing importance generally, except to me! This may be a complaint that
some of you recognise - known to me as Menopausal Brain Death, but also
called Pregnancy Brain by my younger sisters of the woolly headed
This page began with my box of magazine clippings - I get it out and rummage through and see what tickles my fancy. On this occasion it was the word "thieves" and the wanted poster ... so I began by sticking them down and then the writing around them just flowed from there ...
You can see how I start the lettering with quite basic writing and then go back and embellish it, making each line thicker and giving the letters curly bits. I also began the background by colouring around the lettering with the broad nib end of my Promarkers - I like the effect this gives of leaving a white edge around the letter.
Then I got absorbed in what I was doing and forgot to take any more pictures, so this is the finished result. Like I say I was laughing the whole time I was doing it - at least I think I was, but can't quite remember ...
If you are experiencing the same problems you have my profound sympathy ... perhaps we should start a club? That would work if any of us could remember to turn up, or where to find the website?
