Broken......

HEARTS HEAL!!!

Without going into details....life as I've know it has taken a twist.

I signed up to be a part of


I've not been real faithful as most of my spare time is taken up with assignment....but today I knew I needed to create this page, in truth the idea surfaced last night so I began ripping up the pages.

I am not typically a "journaler" but I wanted to get out of my box and try something different!!


For this spread, I knew I wanted to start with a the heart and it morphed from there!!!
EVOLUTION as Julie calls it.
I adhered torn dictionary pieces to the page with Multi Medium. I then, created a stencil and painted with Claudine Hellmuth's Studio ~ Dash of Red acrylic paint. The heart was spritzed with a Black Soot Reinker Mixture. To accentuate the heart, edges of the page and the verbage....
I used Claudine's Charcoal Black acrylic paint. 

The flowers are from Prima and colored with watered down Dash of Red paint. The green, which to me signifies LIFE, is from a Lettuce Paint Dabber. The accents are Platinum Stickles.


I wanted to explain the symbolism of the page and this saying came to me........

WE WILL EMERGE AS A FLOWER.....FOREVER CHANGED BUT BEAUTIFUL!!

Today......that is what I hold on to!!



FYI.....do play along this week with the Simon Says Stamp and Show Teamies.......
they've created some FANTABULOUS stuff!!!
