Texture, texture, texture

After the workshop with Andy Skinner last SAturday I decided to have another play with some of the ideas and techniques that I learnt.

I decided to work on the cover of a journal.......this didn't turn out quite how I thought it would but that's OK, I am happy to go with the flow when things aren't exactly how I thought they'd be! And I did like the end result eventually!

 I love these metal octopus!



 When working I have a large pad of paper underneath and it often ends up looking quite interesting............that was the case with this and rather than waste it I used it as end papers for the journal.
