Page in my calendar journal:
And now I know why I have always had a deep longing for the Irish, Scottish, and English cultures!!! ( hey, I asked for a bagpipe as a young child and have always loved plaid and no one in the family could figure out where that came from) Not long ago thru DNA Ancestry I found out I am 37% Great Britain-1st Scottish, 2nd- English, 3rd Irish in that segment; another 16% Irish; 28% SW France; 10 % Italy, Greece; and 4% Swedish. You could have knocked me over with a feather!!! I was always told I was mostly French with some German and Swedish in the mix. Period. The part that really blew me away- Italy and Greece-wha???? Not a drop of German... But I am 100% European (smile- I always thought that). Unfortunately my French side (all on my mother's and a bit on my dad's) came from small villages where adoptions (in both families) weren't recorded. But hey- I'm Irish!! And hubby and I SO want to see Ireland one day. My mom couldn't believe the results when I told her. And she's willing to do the test now too as is my son:)
Been doing lots of die cutting again- flowers and leaves , and images for my Easter cards,
while enjoying my morning coffee in my Scottish thistle mug. Joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth and gang for T Stands For Tuesday. ( Eileen did you spot the ATC you sent me behind my mug?;)
This week ( on Thursday) I'm also celebrating both my birthday (59) and blogiversary (6)! I expect it to be a very quiet day as it's a workday week for most but will make up for it another time. Thought I'd give you the link to my very first blog post which despite the date at the top was actually published on March 15:)
A journal page (Baby's Breath in a Jar):
I painted this one after watching a few Art Sherpa You Tube videos over the weekend. Going with just the black and white and trying to make a jar look reflective was a bit scary so of course I had to give it a go-and wow- I love how it turned out with just some simple brush strokes!
Joining Moo Mania and More (theme is Colour-Effect); Art Journal Journey (theme is Spring); and Paint Party Friday! Thanks as always for stopping in. Sláinte!
