Who killed cock robin?

I said the Sparrow, 
with my bow and arrow,
 I killed cock robin

 I have a liking for myths, legends, old stories, fairy tales and nursery rhymes etc, so when I saw these postcards at the book fair I went to last weekend, I bought them. The colours and the woodcut look also appealed:)
They are by CAROLYN TRANT

 Rather than just add them to my "out and about" journal I decided to use them and work around them echoing the colours and images in them......I worked  in an A4 journal and I'm pleased with the way them came out.
Although it's not "white space" I am happy that I managed to leave some "empty space" (well apart from a little colour) rather than needing to fill every part of the page:)

What fabulous pages. These really capture an essence of themes and feelings that happen to be personal to me at the moment - they reached out and grabbed me.
