These two are from Gelli prints Sarah, Lynne and I did together a few weeks ago, using deli paper and various acrylics.
These come from another avenue I’m currently exploring… a long, ongoing story …
… and these are my latest journal pages, hot off the press…
Thanks so much those of you who commented and welcomed me back – it means a lot at any time but especially at this moment in time.

Hello bloggers! I’ve missed you – sorry I’ve been AWOL again but life has been a little busy lately and shows no sign of letting up.
I have, however, been doing a little creating, so I thought I’d blog a little to catch up.
Here are a few pages from my mixed paper size Faith Journal.
As you can see from the photo below, I went back in with the black pen to outline the stars and add a stitched border to top and bottom.
The side border is a Dylusions stamp which I cut around to create a shaped border.
This one was lots of fun to do. It’s glossy card so I used alcohol inks on it to create a mid blue(ish) sky, then added the rays with a fine paintbrush. I added more lines and texture with Ranger’s original Acrylic paint – they changed its name to Pearly something or other last time I saw it but I haven’t heard of it for a while. I used Butterscotch, and pulled more out with the paintbrush. I was really pleased with the effect and it’s very tactile.
More to come soon…
