I have finished embellishing April's pages now,it is the month of my 11th wedding anniversary, the symbol of which is steel. The colours represent the colour scheme of my Wedding, and I have used metal embellishments to represent steel, hence 11 flowers too! To colour the pages to look like steel, I first applied paynes grey to the gessoed surface. When dry, I painted over in silver, and then again when dry, another coat of paynes grey and silver mixed together. The final coat when dry was black Quink ink. I love getting the inks and paints out to create my pages, but they are very much in the style of a scrapbook. I would love to be able to make them more journally.
I have had a computer problem this morning. When I switched on, I found some returned emails that I knew I hadnt' sent. Checked my sent mail box and it seems someone has hacked into my address book and sent out mail to everyone in it, for a certain sort of medication. I need to get my son Rhodri to help and advise me when he gets home tonight. Sorry to anyone who has got a random email from me.
