Spots before my eyes….

I have been trying to knuckle down to things I should be doing but a bit of procrastination never did anyone any harm!!!

The reason of course is that I want to join in at Art Journal Journey - where Gill (Gibby Frogett)has chosen the great Nature's Wonders as her theme! 

I already had a background and I found this fabulous photo in National Geographic - a magazine we buy occasionally!

I added the word and some random dots using black, gold and white pens and a little bit of stamping with some dots!
I outlined that word to make it stand out for this creature is truly unique - I love how animals have such amazing camouflage!
(see what I did there - I think it's a Leopard - but not totally sure!) 

I apologise for my poor blogging - as you may know we spent last week with the two grandsons - for cousins with a few years between them they get on so well! 
This week we will be leaving for the caravan again to spend time with the eldest of those two grandsons along with his Dad and sister.

Hope I can catch up soon!

While I am here I would like to welcome my new followers and also say a special Thank You to all my followers, for encouraging me along my crafty way!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Hey Chris - I love all cats. Big cats and little cats, fat cats and skinny cats. Cats have the most gorgeous faces. I love they way they gaze at you like you are probably the least important thing in the world. I have 3 cats and they bring us so much pleasure!
That is one beautiful cat and I love your page.
Have fun at your get away. You are so busy!!!
