Hi lovelies! First I wish to thank everyone for the well wishes regarding my terrible fall the other week. Thankfully I can now say I have very minimal pain only on occasion so I'll be quite ready and healed for -ACH- our son's wedding this Friday!!! Hard to believe it's here and will be over in the blink of an eye. I'll share about it next week. So I thought I'd begin this post about love starting with this journal page which I will share with Art Journal Journey for the theme of "Hold The Line":
Next up is a tag I just made for Tag Tuesday (All Hallow's Eve); Try It On Tuesday (Halloween); and the new Simon Says Monday Blog Challenge (Movie Inspiration):
My movie inspiration? Edgar Allen Poe's 'The Raven'! The painted tag was one gifted to me by Valerie with a lovely packet of goodies . I added some black ink with a sponge. The kitty, spider ribbon and black enamel dot are Recollections. The moon and sentiment is from ARTchix collage sheets. Poe is a found photocopy, and the raven is an old unknown stamp.
And lastly this journal page was inspired by a Willowing Lifebook 2021 Taster Lesson by Alena Hennessy:
I have been wanting to paint a lotus for a long time and am quite happy with how it turned out. She did NOT use a lotus image in her lesson but I wanted to. My affirmation came quite easily after the lotus. A few more pics:
I added little touches of sparkle with a gold glitter gel pen. There were so many wonderful lessons but alas I only got to two of them - the two that resonated with me the most.
Of course I will also join in at Paint Party Friday! I may be a bit late in visiting those of you there but I will get to you . Thanks as always for stopping by. XO
