Journal Pages






A very special friend of mine celebrated a very significant birthday recently and I along with some crafty friends got together to put a journal together for her as a surprise. These are my contributions to the journal. Mary is such an inspiration to any who have met her and we were delighted to be able to do something to mark her day. The album was an 8x6. These pages have distressed ink backgrounds with stamping and embossing, my favourite image transferred onto fabric, an etched angel on nickel silver and soluble paper which I inked and stitched into it. (I used glue to stick it to the page and it started to disolve, so a lesson learned for me lol)

Oh, this is so beautiful Carrie! You always make the most fantastic art. The side with the transfer is perfect as always (you know I love them) and the side with the angel looks like it comes straight out of a sweet dream. Forgive me for saying so, but you really are my favourite artist!
