I have a mobile groomer outside my home working on my Labradoodle Phoebe.  The little guy, Humphrey, is howling up a storm.  I'm having a hard time putting this simple idea together, but "random acts alphabet" came out of the drawers this morning and I'm sticking with it.

I gessoed my journal page and used two shades of pale taupe to color the background.  When dry, I applied Victorian Velvet Distress stain aground the edges.  I spelled out "besties" on copy paper and soaked the surround of each letter with Copics. I used Bic water based paint pens and Pitt pens to accent.  "Little friends"  was stamped with coffee dye ink on tea stained muslin.  The image was stitched to scrap paper.  Graphite pencil scribbles are added to the negative space.  Scraps are added to help anchor the composition. 

Finally, I added a little piece of ruled paper for a journal entry.

I'm going to keep on playing with these letters before I put them away.
