inspiration monday


sometimes when you're feeling a little blue,






shut the world out and let inspiration take over.






(and don't forget to add a big dose of pure silliness!  :))



{this was created in my walls notebook using a white charcoal pencil,
derwent watercolor pencils,  dr. martin's bleedproof,  E10 falcon nib,
6B graphite pencil, spectrafix spray}

* i've received many questions about whether i use a spray to fix the charcoal and pan pastel artwork in my journals.  a while back, my bloggy friend donna over at just-a-lucky-dog told me about a product called spectrafix.....it's casein based and doesn't smell obnoxious like most other sprays out on the market and i really like using it!  you can read more about it here!

I like this happy post. Thanks for the SpectraFix fixative link. This sounds so much better than waiting for nice weather to spray outside. Do you find it darkens your work at all?
