Blot recovery

My art journal is a place where "there-is-no-such-thing-as-a-mistake"... in theory.  I still cringe when the unexpected happens.  By that I mean a drag mark of ink or paint from my sleeve because I always seem to get my cuff or elbow into paint or glue, even coffee!

In this instance it was wayward ink.  I had just cleaned my fountain pen and had installed a new ink cartridge.  Since the nib and feed were completely dry I was shaking the pen to encourage ink flow.  But I was doing this over my journal and, wow, a big, blue blob of ink magically appeared.  Oy.

My recovery was this:

"Ink Blot Birds"

I am adhering to the art journaling precept of "there is no-such-thing..."  :-)
