WOYWW #124 - Completed Charcoal Page & Video Tutorial

Hi Everyone, workdesk today has on it the finished A3 art journal page I said I'd show in my last post on charcoal sketches and lots of cardboard boxes I'm using for a video tutorial I'm making today on how to turn them into a dos-a-dos journal. I'll post it on here once done.

Here is a close up of the double page spread (sorry it still isn't v. detailed close up it's because the book is so big). 
I didn't do much to it, just added a quotation from my favourite ever playwright George Bernard Shaw (in fact he is a favourite ever man of mine, let alone writer) and added a vintage collectable card of him, same as those that are in my giveaway

Then I added some washi tape and some penwork and gave both the charcoal sketch and G.B.S's quotation a border of turquoise toily-type material.

Happy WOYWW, thanks for visiting Jennibellie x
