Mistake

Wow, this must be my fastest Q&L entry and fastest page made ever.
I had/set myself a time limit of about 30 mins on this page, this was  in between packing suitcases.
I had found this fun quote: We don't make mistakes, just happy little accidents.
I grabbed a gelli print out of my stash, one with circles and suddenly the quote made me think of smiley faces, so I drew some.
There was a white strip on the bottom which I masked with some homemade gelliprinted washitape.
I added this fun, quirky, sassy girl  who suits the atmospere just perfectly. I stamped her, scanned the image and enlarged it on the computer.
Used some Derwent colorsoft pencils to color her and  give her a funky look and added the quote in handwriting.


I'm off now for a well deserved hopefully sunny, relaxing holiday.
I will be back (in a couple of weeks).
