I set out to make a layout that I could see so clearly in my head that I knew it would come together really quickly and this layout did come together really quickly (except the title scrabble game with my remaining letters), but it looks nothing like the layout I had envisioned (that will just have to wait for another day).
I love these thickers, I wish I had bought more than one pack, they are such a great size, and I love brown as it’s so usable. This is based on the Pencil Lines sketch 247. Or it might be, I didn’t base it on it, but I made it after seeing the sketch and it’s really similar so I should credit.
It’s not often A. and I get pictures of the pair of us with him looking remotely like himself so this is a really nice picture, you can see from his very red ear that there had been a fair amount of alcohol consumed for this event to happen.

I’m really enjoying just playing around with pattern at the moment, and although the pages might not be the most technically advanced or indeed telling the greatest stories theyare capturing how I’m feeling right now and often little bits of sayings or phrases that mean a lot to me/us.
this was a snippet from an instant messaging conversation with A. just one of those little passing moments that means nothing except to those involved.
