I decided to catalog my chalk pastels; I use them both wet and dry. I made 9 tiny marks with each color. Unfortunately the dry colors blended before I fixated them so it doesn't like as crips as the first picture any more.

I don't have any fashion catalogs, but I did have some gardening and interior magazines, so I clipped images from those. The theme Nature emerged and I added chalk pastels in the background. Added some lines and doodles with fineliners.

Since it's winter and cold outside I decide to use some of my old drawings. I made these while my daughters were have their music and art classes.

Large picture of flowers in the center; framed with leftovers. Since I didn't want to write over the flowers I made a tag with my new Penny Black Tagged die and hung it from the frame. The saying is from Notes from The Universe creator Mike Dooley about the magic of the world around us.

I looked at some abstract examples for inspiration; mine turned into a bird and a monster. Water colored with soft chalk pastels.
