Well, that was weird! It seems that taking a break was a good thing, but now I have some “Splaining to do Lucy!”
Hmmm…where do I start?
First a huge THANK YOU for all the beautiful comments when I said my sad farewell! THANK YOU!!!
Now to explain:
Simply put, things were just a little too crazy when I made that decision, family stuff you know. I had recently gone through some family stuff and tried to keep this all together, and it wasn’t fun. Next time I’ll just take a break.
I do want to apologize though, I hate being wishy washy, but I’m over the stress hump now, and I’ve realized how large a hole was in my life without all this!
I’ve been staying busy in the garden, but have managed to put a little time aside for art journaling. I pulled this one out of the shop because I loves him! So Cute!
I’ve been playing around with some “Back 2 School” ephemera I put together (there are some ephemera packs in my shoppe). So, I thought I would share something I worked on this morning.
A process post, Yay!
Because most people don’t have a Zutter binding machine, and I suck at lining things like this up, I used a regular old hole punch and a pair of scissors to pop this card into my journal. You just punch the holes accordingly, then snip along the edge, and pop it into your journal.
As you can see I prepared it with a few swipes of gesso.
I added a white doily as a background. One thing I like to do is hit the edges with sand paper while it’s still a little damp, it helps seal the edge so that it doesn’t pull up or peal.
Here’s the finished page. I used a #8B pencil to go around the edges of the images.
So, there you have it. That wasn’t too difficult…in other words…next time, just a break!!!
I’m having a few technical difficulties with my blog right now, I’m in the process of working them out. So, I would really appreciate it if I got a few comments letting me know that this actually got to a reader or two.
So PLEASE give me a shout if this makes it to your door!!!
Thank you for the visit,
