Waiting For The Rain - Karen's CJ

This is my entry for the penultimate Desert Island Discs CJ.
I had Karen's CJ and the song I chose from the two that were left was Waiting For the Rain by Manfred Mann. When I looked the lyrics up online the line "Look at you hiding from the rain" made me think of this stamp from Unity. I really like her and use her at every opportunity so she was the basis of this entry. I stamped her on some MME paper.

I glued down some book pages as the base and then lightly gessod over the top. Next I used some Liqutex paint thinned down. I used the Hero Arts Blue Neon ink with a chevron stamp for more texture. The doily was sprayed with Mr Huey in Sunshine and the other stamps are from a MME set I have. The butterflies rub-ons are Bo Bunny. Finally I wrote out two of the lines from the song that had caught my eye. It's now with Nigel for the final entry and I have Nigel's here to complete. It's been a super CJ and I'll be sad to see it end. 


  1. Love this page, it's says Summer (despite the brolly).

  2. I'll be sad to see it end but still even more sad that Sarah's is still missing. I adore what you've done on the journal - gorgeous stuff!

  3. that is a cute stamp indeed :) love the sequins and the doily
