Ole’ Salty Dawg (It’s a Postcard!!)

I was watching Natasha (Enastasia) stream this afternoon and I made this as I crafted along with her 🙂

It’s my very first attempt at doing an art journal page (of sorts) cause I don’t have an art journal book (yet)!   This was fun, I dont think I’d use timmy’s distress inks again as they tend to run when I applied some gel medium … guess i’ll need to invest in some archival ink!!  …*** Edited to say that after watching Rachel’s live stream this is in fact a postcard!!) who’d have thought!***…

I have absolutely no idea where the inspiration came for this… I just went with the flow and this is the outcome… in fact, It kinda reminds me of my late dad, he was in the Navy and he used to smoke cigars (bless his wee soul), wonder if he was with me in spirit up in my craft workshop today 😉
