About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. family:";">

More Mixed Media challenge optional green use a little or a lot

More Mixed Media challenge optional green use a little or a lot

I usually try not to complain as it makes me feel worse but I have had such a bad day today (Friday 2 March).  This post is scheduled for Monday 5 March.  The Fibromyalgia and arthritis pain is worse and my headache is much worse also.   For the past couple weeks I have been hearing this rumbling noise all day and most of the night.  The first day I heard it I thought it was thunder in the distance but it wasn't.  All we can think is it must be the blasting and work they are doing on the tunnel for the road that is going to go under our house.
Also an overseas scammer has been ringing my phone all day.  I don't answer it when I see the Overseas on the phone.  But it is annoying having to keep leaving off and walking to the phone to check.   And now tonight my printer/scanner won't work so I can't scan my page and I have had to take a photo but my camera doesn't take very good photos.  It was working a while ago when I printed out the picture, so I don't know what is wrong now.
So here is my messy journal page.

I coloured the journal page with Ecoline Brush Pens and then spritzed with water and let the colours run down the page.  When dry tried to draw rainbow with distress crayons.
Painted raindrops stencil with moulding paste.  When dry sponged the raindrops with chalk (unfortunately you can't see the raindrops in the photo).
Stamped grass along bottom of page.  Added picture and sentiment a friend sent me on facebook.
Added punched leaves and flowers.

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

Even though this page is not very good I am going to add it to the following:

A Inky Mess 18 - anything mixed media

Altered Eclectics - anything mixed media/altered art

Art Journal Journey - spring

Dragonfly Journeys 112 - going green - a little or a lot

I think it's a beautiful journal page and really speaks of spring to me. If I had all your health issues, I would crawl into bed and not think about anything else. I think your page is worthy of accolades. Thanks for sharing it with us at Art Journal Journey.

What a rotten day! The blasting would drive me crazy but you are also suffering with chronic pain as well. I hope you get some peace and relief. The telephone scams are so annoying and can be frightening as well. Around here you can trace the harassing calls and report them to the police (*57). Your journal page is absolutely beautiful! I've thought about starting an art journal but haven't done it yet. Gorgeous work! Hope things get better for you.... sending hugs.
