I didn't set out to make a New Year page, it just sort of happened because this is always a reflective look forward/look back period for me. It felt good and right to conclude that in all of the many ups and downs the past year has brought, there was so much that was good, lovely and true.
The page began with a soft blue acrylic paint, which I then dabbed off with a baby wipe. In reflective, nostalgic mood it was possibly inevitable that I went for a soft sepia vintage look in my collage materials. I used to love making collages with this old fashioned, timeworn look, but don't do so very often these days.
I left it like this for a while but in the end the blue was really irritating me, so out with the marker pens and I toned it all down. The result isn't perfect but its better I think?
Once again, I share with you my own hopes for a new year - which are for more light, less pain and a great deal of love, which really is all any of us can ask for or need.God Bless
