From dingbat to design

This started with a dingbat which I magnified, traced and placed randomly on a page of my journal. I filled the shapes with masking fluid and then painted and splattered with acrylic inks over the top plus a generous sprinkling of bronze powder. I think this may become some sort of a stitched project in the future but haven't quite figured out what. For now I just like looking at the cheerful colours - and we all need cheering up just at the moment, god knows.

Happy Thanksgiving Day to everyone in the US. I really hope you serve bread sauce with your turkey over there, or is it just a British thing? Turkey ain't turkey without bread sauce!
