I decided to do this while England were losing to Iceland! May as well use my time sensibly.
I began by roughly sketching my cockerel onto my large journal page. Then, because I am a "get done yesterday" casualty, I sprayed my background and sprinkled Infusions and mopped with a tissue.
Next, I went for the easier option of monochrome, and cut out pieces from a paper pad called Paris Nights. It is a bit cobbled together in my usual haphazard style, but is rescued with black pen outlines. I used some painting that little Rose, my Granddaughter did recently for the wattle and comb. the legs are just drawn with pen.
The quote is the beginning of a poem by Margrit!
I shall enter him into the PA challenge.
