A sudden shift is certainly something that happened while I was working on this page - which is literally hot off the press. There I was happily playing in my journal when unexpected news came which rocked my foundations for a while. So what's a person to do in that situation? Get it down on paper of course!!
I had begun with this turquoise paint background, just because I like the colour, and its nothing fancy as you can see. I rarely bother to do "clever" backgrounds because I know I'm only going to cover them up. I just brushed a slightly darker blue around the outer edges and added the flower.
