Joey gave us a ribbon and a pinch of Poke Leaf to start with, then invited us to finish her tile. The Pokes are a lot like Mooka to me. I love the way they can look in others hands, but struggle to find one of my own that I like. But I stuck with Mooka, trying it many different ways and I have a couple of variations that I now draw and am happy with. The Pokes took longer - but I think this week I may have found an approach to Pokeleaf that I like - adding a few auras on each side - it seems to give it a bit of bulk which I prefer. The finished tile reminds me of something quite old and elegant - possibly the cover of a Victorian lady's journal, perhaps one where she notes the changes in her cottage garden.

I like the way that although the materials I used differed between my two tiles, the colours were similar which gives a pleasing sense of harmony.
