This was one of those times when I just put pretty colours on the page and waited for inspiration to strike - which took some weeks! I'd intended to use the page portrait wise, but it insisted on being landscape, and it was only when I turned it sideways that I was able to write on it. I'd come across this quote some time back and written it down in the notebook of ideas I keep for journal inspiration. I have a wheel stamp by Stampin Up which I was able to wiggle along the lower edge - the music couldn't have straight lines could it?
I deliberately took a picture at the stage above so you could see how I put the words down very simply at first, and then go back and sort of "fill out" the lettering, adding thickness and shaping.
The white parts above were done with my Posca Paint pen, and the finer details added below were done with a Uniball Signo pen. These are the best of all for white coverage - and no they're not paying me to say that! You know how I love doodling about anyway, so lots of it here.
You won't be surprised to know that I'm somewhat distraught at the recent vote going against Women Bishops, and deeply sad about the result. I was angry at first - we've waited SO long, but I can't hold on to that. However, this quotation seems just right for my attempts to understand those who opposed the Measure - they just can't hear the music. We will find a way forward somehow, whether together or apart .... I just wish that the church didn't look like an outdated eccentric dinosaur, totally irrelevant to much of the world. :(
