rubber and dribbles…

Finally I didn’t just find time, I made time to play in my journal. It was a page of layer as I started and liked, carried on and hated, got out the gesso and palette knife and covered up most of it.  The more layers I added the more I liked what was being created.

When I was happy I whipped out the rubber stamps as this page didn’t scream “write on me” and I had a nagging feeling that if I did I wouldn’t like it so much any more.

Tim’s stamp said what I needed it to say as right now I’m working hard to follow some life long dreams. It’s hard work and I have been told that I beat myself up to much when something doesn’t go to plan.  And the little girl, she represents me, as well as being my favourite stamp.  She’s becoming a fond friend in this journal.

Love the page Vicki and also that you made yourself some me time too.
So good to see that little girl on your page, on some of mine I seem to use a 'favourite' stamp and wondered if I over use it but now I know a real Journaller rather than a learner like me does that then Yay I can keep doing it. :-)
Your work always inspires me and makes me want to go an play.

This is fabulous Vicki - loving your honesty about the layers and the hate it/love it process. I do that too!! The result is very powerful as well as beautiful.
