Shirley's pair journal update.

Sorry it has been a while since I last posted here but I have at long last got around to doing so.
I have added a flower rubon to the corner of the page that Sarah painted this great lady on.
She really sang to me when I opened the page!
On the reflections page I placed a moon using various colours of Treasure Gold. 
I also added in the seahorses and water plant.
Sarah gave this page a lot of texture so I added more by using a texture paste for the word 'Home.'
Collaging on the houses and adding the flowers across the page.
Following on from Sarah's textured page I used a thick gesso and corrugated card stock to give my 'Love' page lots of depth.
Using a weathered wood technique that I learnt at an Andy Skinner class I created an icy looking background and added the baby angel image.
Finally I have produced this background using lovely warm colours.
I did intend to add some stencilling and stamping to it but having my right arm in sling slowed me down. I am sure Sarah will work her magic on the page and hopefully have some fun too.
I will be getting this into the post to you this week Sarah.
I have your journal sat on my desk ready to do but not sure exactly when that will be as the problem that required me to have a sling is still there. I am hoping to see a consultant this week and get things sorted!


  1. These look great. I love the depth of colour in the last page.

  2. Hi Shirley - I love the additions you have made to my pages and your new contributions too - fantastic! Absolutely no rush whatsoever on the other journal, as it will be a while before I can get stuck into this one. You concentrate on getting better x
