Safflower Saffy Valentine

From playing too much Sacred 2 Fallen Angel this week and concentrating on home and Accounts, I was very productive last night. I heard from my online pal Billie (very clever, very talented lady) and she has fallen in love with the Flowerpot girl, so we are doing an ATC swap. I decided to draw her again and along came 4 other characters, all vying for attention. I drew each one in my watercolour handmade journal, working from the back towards Blue & the Jesterbird.

This morning I scanned them all into my PC and then I printed Saffy off onto a different art journal page where she became colourful, vibrant and “loved up”!

Anyone can catch your eye...

I haven’t tweaked the colours in Photoshop, all I did was add the words. I’m happy with her!! This is my entry to  the Three Muses “Quotation” challenge and Theme Thursday’s “Words” this week…

I wonder why we have these bursts of creativity? I am not feeling the writing part of journalling at the moment, but I really am enjoying the drawing! So grateful for small mercies! 🙂
