Hi there! It's another month & a very interesting challenge at ARTASTIC:
It's a wood cut print by THEA PROCTOR:
And the CRITERIA this month is THE USE OF BLACK PEN.
Initially, when I saw this, I thought of Alice In Wonderland. Dunno why??
Anyways, when I went to create my LO, I ended up doing this 'brain storming':
Now, this was just my initial 'thoughts'....but most of them I ended up going with:
Slightly more than a touch of blue!!!
You can see my pen work....border......drew stars through the stencil as I wrote down:
And of course, my journaling!
Lots of new and old goodies all mixed up...as usual:
 The sort of 'scribble' die cut in the bg came from Lizzie Crust....It's LOVELY!!!
Almost as lovely as my step Great Grand Girl!!!
Hoping you think this challenge is something YOU can get your teeth into.
I think it's a really broad ranging ARTastic challenge.... I had great fun with it!
Cheers for now ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
