Wow we are on the ball this month girls  Laughing   Great page Becky - you look as though you should have been an engineer!

This is mine.  I did it last month as part of a "double spread" as I had inked the page:  Lots of writing which is NOT like me! - but inspiration in life (Winston Churchill), Amateur Dramatics and now Crafting.  Based on my Kate Crane DVD and I tried to put in a piece of totally outrageous colour - again not like me  Laughing

Love your page Jennie. I think Kate Crane and Dylusion sprays have a lot to answer for.

Becky for someone who is stumped by the challenge, that is a fabulous page! As,indeed, is yours Jennie I rather like the splash of outrageous colour.

Have done my page and hope to upload tomorrow.  This was a big theme for a little book.

No Becky, I haven't used my dylusions yet Embarassed  This page was an experiment with ProMarkers on Gesso.  I found the Gesso stopped the ProMarkers bleeding through.  

I was a bit stumped too Margaret and now that I have done my page all sorts of historical figures wander through my mind - isn't that always the way?  Surprised

Looking forward to yours Vonnie, particularly as you, too, have such a small Journal.

I'm afraid I've cheated on this one and done my page on people who have inspired me in yoga.  I've written a little about each person on the other side of the page.  I used pan pastels this time as a trial - I've only got 3 colours which is a bit limiting.  They do blend very easily but I get in a bigger mess with them than with inks!  Margaret

Love your page Margaret love the stamps you used. I keep thinking about Pan pastels but they are messy and not cheap are they.

Thank you Becky.  The stamps are from Chocolate Baroque.  The pan pastels do blend very easily but as you say, are expensive.  I got a set of 3 just to try them.  Margaret

What a wonderful idea Vonny.  Lovely page.

Is that your handwriting too?  It is really neat and beautifully formed.
