The magic of secrets

 This morning I saw that the challenge on GINGERSNAP CREATIONS is RAVENS. I have never joined the Gingersnap challenge before but I do love ravens so decided to play along.
Not having full access to my stuff just now (see previous post if interested why) I grabbed a few collage sheets, my PAN PASTELS (available from The Stamp Attic)glue stick and a journal and this is what I came up with!
 You might ask why the quote.........well, no good reason really.....I went through the Radio Times looking for interesting wording and came up with THE MAGIC OF SECRETS.....I kinda like it!!!

 I used Pan Pastels to colour the background and also to colour my pumpkin.......which I drew myself.


Do you think ravens know THE MAGIC OF SECRETS?

P.S. May I ask....do you use a charcoal pencil for your fabulous shadows on things?

Oh my goodness, this is marvelous!!! I love the depth you've achieved with your beautiful shading, the coloring with the pan pastels, the fabulous sentiment, and the scrappy cuts of paper. The sentiment is great (don't you love it when words sort of pop out and make and impression on you?) Love it. Thanks for sharing this with Gingersnap Creations, and welcome to the fun!

I think yours definitely does and it's probably something to do with your fabulous pumpkin! Keep seeing pan pastels being used and I'm thinking Christmas is coming.........! Love this, Chris

This is totally the most unique and happy raven I have ever seen. Love his costume and his dancing paws. What a funny bird. I had to laugh out loud when I saw it.
