My Own Thoughts Entirely!

This page is a painted background with Dina Wakley tissue images collaged onto it, with some script and mark-making to add the final touches.

Floral page

Here I just painted my background, glued on some flowers and leaves that I had painted previously (see Here) and then I use oil pastels to draw some more florals in the background.

Comments

Dear Friends,

Thank you for visiting my blog.

So you are aware, I have currently turned off comments for my blog, not because I don't appreciate them but because things are going on in my life right now that mean I may not be able to respond you, and I don't want you to feel I'm ignoring you..

I do appreciate your visits and enjoy visiting your blogs.

I will endeavour to continue putting up posts, so please keep visiting!

Greeting cards

When I first started making cards I bought lots of packs of sticky die cuts. On the whole these have just sat around unused. Having started to make cards again inspired me to get these packs out and use them. These three cards are what I end up with.

Here is another page from my flimsy journal. All the pages in it are deliberately simple. I may come back to this page and add some more, but for the moment it is finished.

Sadness

A digital collage - I may have been feeling a bit down when I created this but, in case you are wondering, I'm not now! I rather like the dark shades in this piece.

Cards

It is a while since I have made any cards, however I was tempted into buying some Anna Griffin kits (I do have a weakness for her stuff!) and here are the first results. The pictures don't show up the depth of the layers terribly well, but each has two riased layers.

Index Card a Day

Here are my next 8 ICADs. Sorry they are all a bit bent - a combination of the paint and the hot weather, I think. I did try to straighten them, but by the time I had unbent one the others curled up again! :-)

Here are my index cards for 15th - 18th July. I am keeping up - I'm just behind in posting them!
