The Velveteen Rabbit

Here is a double page spread I have just done(well....in the past week or so!).
It started off on the left hand page following a technique shown by Leslie Herger aka Comfortable Shoes, where you use gesso, and coloured "Sharpie" Pens and journal your heart out, turning the page each time you repeat the journaling, so you build up layers. you then cover the final layer with paints. So far so good! The whole thing just took off under its own steam and turned into the "Velveteen Rabbit" a story that I have always loved
So here is the "finished product" .... would appreciate it if you give me your honest opinion.... I'm still learning.

About Butterflies

The page above I did for a swap I joined on a well known swap site Sadly I am not in the swap any longer due to a rule I consider to be Draconian, so this journal which was meant to be made of swapped pages will never be finished. The photo is a little dark.... I might lighten it up and replace this copy.
These are the next 2 pages in my little journal. I am not 100% happy with it and may yet fiddle with it a bit more! I don't have a "style" yet, so am just having fun experimenting
