It's been a long time since I posted anything remotely arty or crafty. It's not just my bones that are getting weary and run down. What with the move and then our week in Loch Ness (bliss!) straight after - well, my creative side is resembling Miss Havisham's wedding cake! Cobwebby and neglected, in need of a good dusting and airing.
So - I am running a bit behind on the Sisterhood sketchbooks. I still have July to do and then I'm up to date with the ones that have arrived here so far. This one is my June entry, I completed this before the move but time just slipped away from me and am just now doing my show and tell.
June is the month we lost Mum and it was on the Summer Solstice. So nowadays June is all about reflection, remembering, being sad but also grateful for the time I had with the best Mum in the world. I'm often quite maudlin and I think about the past a lot. And time. I think so much about time, time that's passed and what's to come. How I could have changed things, how I should change things, how I wish things would stay the same as they are now forever... So I hope my pages show this a bit. I tried to give them a Stone Henge-y type of feel.
This one shows the sparkle a bit better - the purple 'stones' are metallic acrylic mixed with normal black acrylic and the background has been liberally sprayed with Glimmer Mist.
It was a good page to do, just sitting playing with the paint and remembering. I wish Mum had seen me rediscover the creative side of myself - she kind of saw the start of it when she got me to go to an art night class with her - I wish she could've seen just what she unleashed.
Best therapy ever this pastime of ours.
Thanks for stopping by as always - am trying to catch up with you all :) Slowly, slowly.
