It has been so long since I have posted anything on my blog. So much happened in the last couple of years, health issues with my husband and I, and the sudden death of our son.

I stopped creating for a while and am now just getting back into it again. I started a couple of art journals and finally some cards.

Have taken some classes to get myself back into the mood and thoroughly enjoyed them.

Here are some of the Journal pages that I have created.:

The background was created with Dylusions paints.  The flowers are Tim Holtz stamps and stencils. The saying is stamped with an Impression Obsession Stamp set.

The background on this was done with several different colours of  distress inks. Added texture with a circle template and stencils, with modeling paste. Stamped various images and words around the page. Finally added the images of children and the words.

This is a page that I had started in a journaling class. I wasn't paying attention when I stencilled the crows on the page, and then realized that I had my page upside down! So I decided to use my Tim Holtz Crazy Bird stamps and stencils and some die cut clouds to the layout.

This page background was done with Tim Holtz Distress paints, Dylusions Stencils, and different modelling pastes. The hearts were done with a Scrapbook template. The butterfly is one of my favourite stamps by Magenta
