My Soul Journal, more pages ..

At last I have time to post some more of my Journal pages. There are four pages I want to unveil to the world or, in other words, show my friends, Not sure of the proper names for these pages, but, as with my other pages, they are all my own work and words too, there is my Name Page, whereby I have made the Journal totally mine, there is my Scribble Picture page, sort of Inner Me thing, I scribbled with an old blue cats eye ink pad and saw a face in the resulting scribble.........then there are two pages of My Favourite Things. Now the official version of Soul Journal has these pictures in 9 equal sized squares, but since nothing in my life is tidy or organised or even perfectly shaped, then neither are my picture pages ...

Altered Tin, Saturday Workout challenge.

This was a small tin that was filled, once upon a time, with toffees, and bright yellow with Bart Simpson plastered over it. I changed the image totally (I hope) with Butterscotch, Lettuce and Cranberry Alcohol inks, and a few tiny stamped flowers stamped with Stazon. I embellished with peeloffs, top and sides, but used a clear glue to make sure they stuck down forever, and finished off with tiny clear jewels. The central embellishment was an acrylic flower, but because the tin was quite dark, though not as dark as the scan shows it, the flower didn't show up, so I stamped a tiny flower on top as well.....This is also the challenge for Saturday Workout. Here is the Link.

Getting Older and Wiser ..

Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfections.


There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it.

For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt...
