A Place of Peace

I've had a very busy weekend with family and travelling so I'm sorry that my giveaway announcement is a little later than promised!

Thankyou for all your lovely comments telling me which print you'd like to win. I'd love to send you all the print of your choice but there has to be one winner, and the name picked out of the hat is:
Donna Maria Lynn Well done Donna!

As you can see I've been having more fun in my sketchbook with my new Tombow pens and Distress Crayons. The nibs of the crayons are quite thick, like a lipstick but I find they come into their own when used as a background. When they're dry, I like to draw with a black pen on top. The Tombow pens work very well on top of the background too.

We had a long journey to make on Sunday so we decided to stop at Glastonbury for a break on the way home. It's been quite an action packed few days. My youngest son was flying back to Spain, my eldest son got engaged and we accepted an offer on our house. Phew!
I'd never been to the Chalice Well garden before and I had no idea that it would prove to be the most perfect place to feel calm and peaceful after such an emotional time. The winter sun was shining, filling the gardens with magical light and water from an ancient well trickled through the gardens leaving a glow of iron red. I felt at peace there for the first time in ages.

 Thankyou for stopping by today. Have a lovely rest of the week. xx

I LOVE the Chalice Well gardens so much. I've stayed in the house there a few times which is amazing and the best bit ... you get to explore the gardens when they are closed to the public.
