paperDVIZHNIK.......New Challenge

Hello again. I say 'again' because I'm back here with another post; two in one week! I know that's pretty normal for most people but not for my 'sleepy' little blog that just happily plods along at a slow and steady pace. Anyway I'm excited to share the next challenge at paperDVIZHNIK.
This month, it's a sketch. I guiltily have to confess that I'm not usually 'into' sketches; I tend to just do my own thing, BUT, when a sketch is simple and allows a lot of scope for interpretation, it makes the BEST starting point.
I think I must still be in New Year, festive mode because my page is all pearls and sparkle.
Layers of texture paste, gauze, more texture paste, water colour, Inka Gold, Foil Flakes, pearls and sequins.
Of course, I can't do anything without fussy cut flowers and tissue.
If you would like to join our 'sketch' challenge the details are HERE at paperDVIZHNIK.

I would like to say I hope your new year has gotten off to a bright and sparkly beginning: but sadly the events in Paris this past week have thrown a dark and evil veil over the beginning of 2015. 
Sadly Paris, and indeed all of our beautiful world, has again been smeared with extreme hatred and intolerance.
Freedom of speech ? Of course !
The right to offend race or religion ? No !
Nothing positive EVER comes out of insults. 
 Just my view.
