I usually use gesso under these but didnt this time. because I am placing them on black pages in my book I think the gesso makes them stand out better and if I dont use too much you can still see the lovely colours left in the tea bag.

Trouble is this one doesnt look very positive. Whatever I did it didnt photograph well and yet in real life it is quite good. I used a spray as a background, then I rubbed over a rubbing tile with crayon and then drew the leaf in pencil. I think I shlould have gone over it again with a pen. Oh well. I will brighten things up next week.

I absolutely loved doing this, Ro Bruhn was our inspiration this week with Alive being the prompt. I love Ro's work and this is my tribute to her. Not nearly as polished, much more primitive but the best my rather shaky arthritic fingers could do. I have always loved doing houses and rolling hills and pastures but this one just seemed to jump off the paint brush at me. I hope she doesnt mind.

Food for thought, this weeks was about Journeys. I have made many journeys in my time and loved them, would love to go back to Paris, even with all the trouble that is going on there, Japan as well, skiing in Austria was fun and we really only passed through Malaya a couple of times. Our sea link ferry to Kangaroo Island is now the most possible journey I think. We were lucky in the places we have managed to get to and the things we have seen.
