Trying To Get Back...
I have been MIA lately. Recently one of my younger brothers passed away unexpectedly in his sleep. My mother and surviving two brothers especially have been inconsolable so I have had to put on my hat as therapist/caregiver/listener. My biggest concern is my mother, but her dear friends, family and I are making sure she isn't alone too much and is eating. It's going to be a difficult road to travel for awhile.
In loving memory:
I do have some art to share I did about 2 weeks ago. The trust page at top is in my calendar journal-and includes my word for the year.
This card is meant for the Simon Wednesday challenge (Layer It Up):
and with the matching envie:
I used some of Altenew's layering stamps for the flowers and leaves on the card.
Products: white notecard and envie; white card stock;Winter Roses, Camelia Build a Flower stamps sets (Altenew); sentiment - PTI Think Big Favorites #4; sunflower stamp (Magenta); leaf unknown; Wendy Vecchi Brick Wall stencil; Inks- Distress Mowed Lawn; Staz-On Forest Green; Archival-Leaf Green, Sky Blue; Seashells Ocean Aqua; Clearsnap Fluid Chalk ink- Prussian Blue, Gray Whale; Versafine Onyx Black ink.
Weather remains unpredictable-warm one day, cold the next! This pic was obviously taken on a cold day and is for my peeps at T Stands for Tuesday:
Hubby sure looks to be living the life, eh? Hot tea, home baked treats and a throw to keep warm.
One more journal page from the calendar journal:
Background is a gel plate print. Other products; woman stamp (Dina Wakley); assorted washi tapes; paint markers; Pitt pens-black; watercolors.
Joining Art Journal Journey for the theme of New Year, New Adventures hosted this month by the wonderful Erika N. And last but certainly not least I will join Paint Party Friday!
I am looking forward to catching up in blogland again:)
