In the end I reverted back to the more conventional size of A4 (my Dylusions Journal).
I find it difficult to work on something that isn't going to result in finished piece but this is supposed to be just practice so even though I am far from satisfied with this page I just left it as it was and when I get over my frustration!! I will do another page.
In contrast to this I spent some of the weekend playing with my coloured pencils again and did end up with a finished piece but I think I will save that for tomorrow..............
THANKS FOR VISITING
