GET MESSY 2018 | PLAY-03

All of my pages this week were either created on my way to or from Glasgow, or back home with various ephemera I had collected from the trip. 

Spending 8x hours over two days on trains gives you a lot of opportunity to play!

I am discovering the love for watercolour pencils and enjoying playing around with them, seeing how they work with all my other favourite mediums (felt tips, pencils, oil pastels...)

Collage and washi, a dream combination! I was inspired to make these pages after seeing Vanessa and Sarah's washi tape collages. I love the old style photography images too, that I picked up from an art museum in Glasgow. They make me feel like I need to go on an American road trip.. 

I filled my train journey with podcasts and pencils. 
This is a quote from Ladies who lunch, one of my favourite shows to listen to.

  1. Gorgeous! Have you tried the Derwent Inktense pencils yet? Like watercolor pencils, but they have some qualities of ink.
