My first project are two pages that I created in my oversized 11"W x 16"H art journal which was directly inspired by Donna Downey:
Both pages feature lots of texture using a combination of Sizzix melt art rubber molds as well as a Donna Downey floral stencil:
My next project, a Healing Journal, is near and dear to my heart because I made it for my sweet sister Marlene. While I was in the midst of working on the previous art journal pages, I got word that Marlene, whom is 8 years older than myself, was newly diagnosed with Stage 2 Intraductal Breast Carcinoma as well as positive lymph nodes. She is going for a bone scan, chest x-ray, MRI and ECHO tomorrow which will determine the course of treatment. Please keep my sister Marlene and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
I searched high and low for a hard cover writing journal to make this project. I thought it would be a great way for Marlene to express all of her emotions while on the #^%* cancer roller coaster:
I combined various acrylic paints, Prima products including: stencils, modeling paste, gel medium, stamps and texture paste:
Thanks so much for visiting. PLEASE don't forget to get a MAMMOGRAM!!! and please keep my sister Marlene and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
I'm entering my Healing Journal in the Art It Friday Show Your Face post as well as the Words 2 Scrap By challenge where the theme is "Fight Like A Girl".
I hope you have an amazing weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
