....seek inner calm
I am part of a European circle journal group which is a group of women who originally met on Milliande art community. I have been working on Tinas journal from Sweden. She is a stamp designer and has her own range of stamps which she is going to launch soon..here is the link to her blog where you can see her lovely range of Scandinavian stamps. Tina's journal theme is black n white with a touch of red..so here are my pages. They started off as blank white pages but I covered them with black paint and ink and a bit of gesso. The wording on the above page is "in the midst of chaos seek inner calm". Ihave drawn a face peeking out and the page has lots of layers with stencilled and stamped images and layered hearts and flowers.
I decided to make this page heart shaped with a fabric print of happy children with just a touch of red lace and red sewing around the fabric.
This is the sign in tag with one of my fav lost coast wacky images and I have layered it with paint and hearts too. I have stamped the image onto tissue paper first as the image is a lot clearer then over paint. I am posting this off to Mary on 1st March but wanted to make sure I had done it by then - as half term etc is next week with all my sons off school!
