It feels like confession time. I haven't posted on my blog for almost 3 months.
I seem to have lost the plot lately and then flu over Christmas knocked me for six!
Anyway, today, I got out my much neglected repurposed old annual and set to!
Gosh, it was hard work at first as I applied layer after layer of writing, fragile papers, paint, and stamping.
It was soothing, but it just didn't feel right!
So, I kept going in the style of the wonderful artist that is Laly Mille. it gradually began to speak to me as I gained confidence!
This picture shows some of the layers including some scratching into the paint.
I chose some pictures from one of my favourite magazines and words that just chose themselves.
There are lots of stamps in my background but to finish off I chose some hearts by Emma Godfrey for PaperArtsy.
So, the whole process felt like soothing balm, or therapy, as in my title!
If I can remember how to link this to a challenge then I would like to enter this months' challenge on
A Vintage Journey. The reason that I am joining in again after ages is that I was really inspired by the beautiful work from the Design team, particularly Astrid, Alison and Brenda!
