A quiet month.
Family life has been quite full on, Kezzy working for her GCSE's and Mitch having lost his job has been usettled. Saturday, he got the news that his Step Nanny Marge(his sisters true Nan) had died and then his Grandad was rushed to hospital with a severe stroke, so late Saturday night I was driving up the A12 to take him to Colchester hospital. His Grandad died this morning and he is staying with his Nan to help her for a little while, at least until the two funerals are over.
I made the pages by:-
Coating the paper with a base of gesso. When dry, I used Blonde Moments Sugar Dumpling Lustre paint in Sugar Lilac and Sugar Hot. When dry, I stencilled with white paint through 2 different Crafters Workshop Stencils that I have. I outlined the butterflies with a fine drawing pen. Fabric ironed onto Craft Vilene for the words. Sentiment stamped on with Brilliance Lightning black and 'lace'border cut using a Martha Sewart punch.
