More she-art


Hi everybody!
Thanks for all your good wishes, I am slowly feeling better, but still need a bit of time to be 'back to normal'.
One of the great things about Autumn and Winter are the wonderful early morning skies I can see from my balcony, and this photo, taken on Thursday, about an hour before sunrise, makes it worth being awake early. I know I take a lot of sky photos, but it is just so lovely....

At AJJ the theme this month is she-art, and my journal pages give perhaps a rather tongue-in-cheek interpretation of the theme. The background has been painted with acrylics, and I used my new stamps and some of the die-cuts from Donna,  and just had fun. The witchy perfume bottles were sent to me by Diane, and the fashion accessories are from my stash. My black fine-liner was on its last legs, so sorry for the scratchy lettering. I am also linking to Manon's Paper Saturdays.







Thanks for coming by, take care, and have a great day!

  8. Valerie, das ist eine tolle Doppelseite. Absolut she-art-like ist ja die auf dem Besen reitende Hexe mit der übergroßen Handtasche. Ich lach mich hier grade schlapp. Total gut getroffen mit deinem englischen Humor!
    Der Sonnenaufgang ist wirklich atemberaubend schön. Da kann ich verstehen, dass du gerne Himmelbilder "schießt".

  9. So pleased you are feeling a bit better Valerie-hope you are soon 100%.

    The photograph is stunning--you always capture the right moment.

    What fun pages for your journal. I laughs at the lady in black and white check as I had a suit in that material when I was in my late teens and I really thought I looked the bees knees.

    Enjoy the weekend

    Love Chrissie x
