Art Journal Exploits Prompt #6

Sorry folks, this week's prompt comes late. I thought I had scheduled this post for last Monday, when I hadn't :P And was happily on vacation.

Here you go...
I am off to sketch NOW and will update this post in a day with my version of this week's prompt, while I look forward to seeing yours!

A happy rest-of-the-week folks!
