Shaping up...or not!

Hi everyone, it's all happening here! We have had workmen just outside creating a lot of dust by using a grinder, the mess they created is still to be cleaned up and the rain on the dust turned everything to a white mud. Fortunately the sun has been shining for the last two days, although the temperature hasn't risen so much.

I have had yet more changes to my medication following seeing the nurse - my sugar levels weren't dropping and test results showed a hormone problem which means I am now having weekly injections. As I only had my first one on Friday it is not showing much change in my levels as yet.

However I did get to visit the craft show at Port Sunlight. I got a few sneaky peeks at some new realeases coming up too. Yes, I did have a little spend too. Earlier in the week we had a little bit of sun that allowed us to visit Tatton Gardens before the afternoon deluge hit, huge hailstones too!

I made this page over several days for Valerie's 'Geometric Forms' theme at Art Journal Journey.

  I covered the page with squares and rectangles using scraps of paper.

Next came a coat of white paint and some squared washi tape. I used a stamp I have had for a long time, bought in France, it had some shapes on that too. I added some triangles with a stencil and some text with a stamp.

Thanks for looking, Chris

Oh I like your page a lot Chris. All those paper scraps really pulled together with your images. And I can now relate to you trying to get your sugar adjusted. Miss Maddie has developed diabetes and we've been having a hard time getting her to the right insulin level. Being a dog we've had to do a lot of guessing by her behavior since she can't tell us anything. Happy new week. hugs-Erika

Great layered page Chris all elements used work beautifully with the colour strips and stamp brings them all together... wonderful.
I hope your sugar levels soon balance I know how debilitating it can be and that the workmen soon finish what they have started..
Hugs Tracey xx

Another great page Chris.
Thought about Port Sunlight.... but then decided my bank balance wouldn't be happy!
Hope the jabs kick in soon! x

I love your page Chris, great mix of papers. I hope you get your sugar levels sorted soon too. I'm a bit green with envy that you got to Port Sunlight! I so miss going there and I think that is where we were first introduced to each other.
