My chains fell off

The background of this journal page was created with several layers of acrylic paint. After the first couple of layers I painted on some gesso circles to give the rings. I then stamped on top of it (all Tim Holtz, Stamper Anonymous). The chains are decorated packing tape that I bought at Tate Modern a while a go.

'Twas the night before Christmas!!

Better late than never .... I made this journal page before I was (really) ill! The background was collaged and then coloured with spray inks and stencils. Then I added the doodles.

Stand still ...

Well, I made this piece a few weeks ago and wasn't sure I liked it but it seems very appropriate at the moment! I have been feeling ill for a few weeks and the doctor has now diagnosed me with a quinsy and I am on my second lot of antibiotics. To add to my concern, I am meant to be writing an essay for university but am not getting far with this. Consequently, I am  not posting as frequently on my blog, so apologies to my faithful followers.
