Expect the Unexpected

Some days don’t you get a bug to do something different? Last night as I was working in my Moleskine, I realized I only have a few pages left. It is almost full. So I started to look back through it and as always, some pages I love, some are OK, and some I still don’t think are finished. I sat there looking at a couple of pencil sketches and wanted to do something out of the ordinary for me, so I added a little Frida and Zettiology pizazz. It turned the ordinary sketches into something unexpected. I had so much fun doing something daring, and still keeping my style and even colors. I am going to spend a little while going back through my journal and adding to some of the pages until I am satisfied and they scream ‘no more’! to me. I really love this stage of journaling, adding the final layers. The pages keep evolving, hardly ever finished in one sitting, stages of completion until there is no more.
