Calrissian Haiku!

AKA: My first Art Journal Page!

Made for the Nerd Games. GO TEAM OF SHIPS AND MEN!

The Flirt of Bespin

Twirl of cape, winks eye.
Says "Hello, what have we here?".
Smooth Talkin' Lando!

May Wordy: Haiku 55points
Here's the prompt:

Haiku  The Haiku is a very short form of Japanese poetry. Traditional Haiku are composed of 17 syllables in three phases of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively.  To fulfill this challenge you must either:  Create a Haiku and a corresponding craft. OR Craft an item that is inspired by the 5-7-5 phrases of the haiku.

I sneaked a teeny tiny hanging Skywalker....

The book pages I used were from a trashed Hardy Boys.
I couldn't resist having Lando on the "Cool Hand Chet" chapter!

I used a mix of Watercolor, Black fine tipped Sharpie, and Book pages as my materials.

Here's a close up of the haiku.
Major props to Lily for supplying the last line!!!

(Imagine a deep baritone voice)
Lando doesn't do anything without his Colt 45.

I think were in the middle of the Nerd Games and it's been so much fun to 
actually craft for myself!

Right you read this...
is the first time in a VERY long time I don't have any 
crafty deadlines whatsoever.

I don't know if I'm free and breezy about it or a bit lost....
Time will tell.
