Little Paint Sketches and a New Header

Sometimes I like to make little paint sketches using whatever mediums I'm in the mood for.Sometimes watercolour, and a little bit of coloured pencil,This one is a base of pink acrylic paint, then drawn on top with a gel pen, then I used my Inktense pencils to colour in the hair and flowers.

I've also had a play in Photoshop combining 2 pictures together to make my new header. I used this one,and this one,this one above shows what it was like before and this one is after.
Much better I think! (Or should I make that moon lighter...hmmmmm.......)

Love the new header Jessie! I know what you mean about so much to do, so little time...I've got so many things in my head I want to do, and I know I'll never get to them all. I wonder what happens to the ideas we didn't get around to after we die? Perhaps they're recycled and someone else brings them to fruition?! :)
