CB Song Challenge - What a Wonderful World

Once again I've been contemplating this idea for 2 weeks and leaving it to the last minute to execute!
I have been using the felt pen watercolour idea as backgrounds in work I do with kids at school and knew it would be a good basis for this page. I actually sprayed it with fixative before I did anything else on top.

I was happy with the idea of the trees, using the doily as a stencil, but then wasn't too happy with them so pushed them right into the background. I must admit, on the video they didn't look so bad.
I was brave and had my first attempt at writing the title on the page with my Tombow marker - then smudged it when adding another flower while filling the space where the trees were. Not minding my own handwriting so much on my work, except that it seems to be different for every verse!

Please check out my video - still pretty new to recording and posting these so would love you to check them out :)


  1. Fabulous page and your handwriting is just lovely - I'd be writing on everything if mine looked like that!

  2. I love the way you made the background and I've made a note of it to use in the future. A super page and there is nothing wrong with your handwriting.

  3. Thanks for your comments Maggie. Trying to formulate ideas for the next song now. Winter here so having to look back at my Summer holiday - was Christmas camping for me.
