gypsy journey. part 2

ok. so both sides of my pages started in the same way... first with a drawing that I copied, then transferred.
next step was to collage with hand coloured paper towel (a la Tracey be Bautista)-
then while wet coloured the image with caran dache neo colour 11 (LOVE this bit)
and when dry adding those shimmery water colour pots
um....then details with white pen and sequins and beads and things.
now i'm finished and i dont know what to do.
what do you do in those quiet inspiration free zones ?

ps. these pages were inspired by cinka panna
18th century gypsy violinist and the gypsy journey from India to Europe.
When i think gypsy - i think music, horses and dancing. and i love those vibrant Indian colours...
