I have no idea why but I had a disturbed night last night! I woke up at around 1.30a.m. The only thing that was different to my usual routine was going to bed half an hour earlier than usual! I was wide awake and after an hour I still hadn't got back to sleep! Nothing for it but to get up and go to my craft room - this worked once before - I allowed myself 25 minutes - and then went through my bedtime routine again! It worked, although I didn't wake up very early and we seem to have been behind all day. Forgot to mention that hubby started with a cold yesterday so we could both benefit from a lie in anyway.
After breakfast I went to my craft room. During the night I had found an old journal that I started years ago in memory of my Dad. His work and his hobby was gardening. He was a foreman at a large nursery and his own garden was his pride and joy!
I used my new Paper Artsy stamps to create this page. I already had the flowers cut out as I used part of them on yesterdays page,
The page had some mop up gold on it. I stamped some random text over the page and one of the small stamps around the edges, which was coloured in with a combination of watered down Bougainvillea Fresco paint with Are You Cerise Infusions and gold pen. The tape at the bottom is an image transfer from flowery page in a magazine. The words are all from a Paper Artsy Sarah Naumann set (ESNO4)The 'an' was the start of 'anything' picked out with a distress marker.
As I was making this page I did wonder if a dream had woken me up, although if it was that I have no recollection of it!
I would like to enter this in Erika's 'Tell Me A Story' theme at Art Journal Journey.
