A life made by hand journal page 3

I will never look at the Sunday supplements as 'rubbish','junk' a 'waste of paper' again.

I have been looking through them with 'different' eyes for supplies and inspiration
for art journalling.   Gluing and sticking is probably a better term for what I am 
doing at the moment.  The 'art' perhaps will come later!

 The background and wording and the backing paper
are all from the Sunday supplement magazines.

The  blue backing paper is in fact a shuttering on a window which I managed to cut enough little strips, and turned them on the side and shaded!
I have inked around the lettering to make it show up - I think that was from a food advert which I cut and took out the words I wanted to turn into a prompt!

This is the journalled page.
I am not being 'picky' about my writing as Kelly Kilmer said not too.
I think that it will improve if I could find a pen that will write better on shiny paper
and also if I practice writing more.  I have been typing for so long on a computer
my writing has suffered as a consequence!

If any of you know of a pen that will definitely work on shiny surfaces I would very much appreciate the name and a link too if possible.

Thank you for looking
