Clear space

I couldn't make up my mind if POSITIV>>+>>JOURNAL wanted minimalist or if I should clear my desk!

I went minimal-ish!

Gesso on the kraft paper, some versamark then some Pan Pastels, I won a starter kit of 5 colours a couple of years back & they've rarely seen the sight of paper!  I tried stamping the snowdrops & colouring with the pastels but wasn't very happy with the results so rubbed them out.

I went with stamping in a combination of evergreen bough/iced spruce for the snowdrops, iced spruce for the flourishes & swiped evergreen bough direct to some paper before die-cutting some letters to spell spring.

A little shading with Dark Wash, some tiny dots for the flourishes with a sharpie.
