Word Play

There is something so romantic about the life of a gypsy, to be able to pick up and wander on down the lane whenever you feel the urge. I love using a word and creating a page for it or conversely doing a page and seeing what word comes to mind at the end. This one started with the word and the rest followed.

Used a Pilot parallel pen loaded with Walnut ink, then outlined with a gold gel pen and filled in the missing bits with a soft pan pastel. I am quite happy with my lettering in this one. I tried to get a
decent picture but it just wasn't happening. The characters are rubber stamps by Acey Deucy and Non Sequitur. I doodled the map and water coloured the background.

this page is just gorgeous...i too am drawn to the gypsy...her wild carefree caring heart and urge to roam...your lettering is just beautiful and is a perfect centerpiece for your page and the subtle doodling of the map in the background with soft colors is just lovely.

Oooo I love this page, I want to be a gypsy too! I really like how you added Fantasy No. 4817 and the feeling of freedom that a gypsy can go anywhere.
