(with altered colour way)
I thought todays spread was going to be a bit tricky to do.
After all, it was about my INTENTION of doing some daily exerscise, and that's not really my idea of major fun.
It is something that I really do NEED to start doing, every day, no excuses.
(especially when one has a dodgy ticker)
I wasn't sure if I was going to draw something, or someone keeping fit or if I was going to do a collagey thing.
I decided to go down the 'vintage' road and make a mixed media type collagey painty spread with motivational quotes.
Here's how it went.
(quite well I think you'll agree)
I used some of my scraps to collage the pages and did this across the whole double spread.
i worked on top with inks, acrylics, gesso and a stencil mendhi pattern.

I added a vintage chick on a uni-cycle, well it IS about keeping fit.
The quote came from a fitness quotes page via google and I think they work really well with the image.
(left hand page)
These quotes came from my own little ideas,
I like how they are almost telling me what to do.
Ooh so bossy.
I used watercolour paints to add a splash of colour to the vintage chick, and I wrote little ideas around the page edges with my marker pen.
here's a couple of shots with the whole spread...
So that's another spread done.
Now, what shall I choose for my next?
