What's next?

a little art journaling? 

but of course!

Thank you for everyone's condolences and kind wishes for the funeral on Monday.. goodness, what a learning curve! and not a nice one.. it's been a difficult few months for my family.. I am hoping we can spend some time together before the school holidays come to an end.. just doing normal things!

Art journaling has been a great help over the last few months as well and last night I just felt the urge to get inky.. here's a quickie page I made before bed..

All my lists are gone.. what's a girl to do?

I do love how the girlie is starring into the empty space on my page.. I did think about adding some stars.. like she's looking up to the heavens for guidance.. but I like it like this..

Oh, I did have trouble getting my black pen to write over gel matte medium :-( 

sooooo I'm not totally happy with my hand writing! The gorgeous girl and other elements are from Tumble Fish Studio.. always a wonderful place for a mooch.. I just love her!

Thanks for calling and leaving a comment if you get the chance.. thank you to everyone for your support at this difficult time.. I look forward to catching up with you soon. 

Happy crafting. Gez.xx

    However I can't get my poor little brain to work in this way... Your journalling ideas are fab. Now if you want to see messy writing.... I obviously should have been a Doctor lol

  2. Though i'd commented on this Gez but it appears on your previous post, obviously me being used to the comments at the end of the post. Sorry, delete it if you like.
    Just read your poem with tears in my eyes.
