Q&L #04 - AGE

OK, so I have been doing Lyrics so far for the Q&L challenge over at the Craft Barn but how could I resist this quote from Victor Hugo?

Forty is the old AGE of youth
Fifty the youth of old AGE

Had a play with paints again which is most unusual for me. I used a purple biro instead of my black pens this time and that seems to have worked better - for the pens anyway.




Caught up with the last 3 Psalms earlier today too. Now I see them together they have remarkably similar colours despite one being paints and the other sprays. Curious, it wasn't intentional but seems to fit in with the Journal 52 prompt this week of  "Colour Inspiration".
