FEBRUARY JOURNAL PAGE
Remember my arty journal box, in which I was going to make a panel for each month? (Scroll down and find it and January's page). Well this is February's. The size is 4 x 6" so it isn't large, but big enough I find to do something meaningful with. I've been having a lot more pain in recent months, which has made me a bit spiky and grumpy, and I realised I'd sort of put life on hold until it got better. Well it hasn't, so February was a process of learning to say ... just get on with life anyway, and this new stamp I bought rather celebrates that don't you think?
So anyway, I had a lovely, grungey, distress inky sort of session in my favourite browns and golds (with wings OF COURSE) so am quite pleased that this says what I was trying to capture. As with the January card, there is hand-written journalling on the back to explain the image, but that's a bit private, although the general gist of it is above. I've really been re-discovering Tim Holtz and all his stuff (thanks Linda E!) so treated myself recently to this stamp and the crows on the wire one above. Now to save up for some of those scrumptious (if expensive) embellishments he does .....
