I added yellow to my page with a yellow Distress Crayon - Scattered Straw I think - blended with a dampened finger. I stamped my favourite Crafty Individuals background (CI340)- deliberately upside down and stamped it first in another journal to lighten the ink. I wanted the text on the right- as it is slanted script I don't think it's a problem!
Next I stamped Maria Katano's lovely bird (CI505)and used a Pitt Pen to extend the branch and to transform the berries into flowers.The bird was coloured in using a yellow Inktense water colour pencil.
I masked off the black flowers on CI493 - (Wild flowers and ferns) and stamped down the side of the page. Finally I added a sentiment that has long been separated from it's sheet so I'm afraid I can't tell you where it is from.I wish I could recreate this style of mixed fonts.
The page is of course of Rike's 'The Colour Yellow' theme at Art Journal Journey but I would also like to enter at..

Oh! The reason I haven't posted before is because we have been out during the daytime and this is the light I have been using when on the computer...
...our light above the computer started flickering the other night so hubby went to change the bulb and the metal connector fell out - we have contacted an electrician who will 'fit us in as soon as he can'!!!!
Working by this light was giving me headaches - I have now moved a table lamp and the combined light is much better.
Thanks for looking, Chris
