Two Unintentionals!... D

Hi everyone, Time for another challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and it is Asha's turn to chose the theme and that is

That will be quite easy to portray summer in a project, don't you think?

I was going through my late mum's photos for the first time since she passed last year and found an empty journal.  I have never before used one and it was like a sign to get on and make one. She was telling me to.

Well anyway I was playing about with my journal using Dylusions, Distress ink and Indigo blu stamps. Now before I started there was a part of the pages that got stuck together previously and I thought, well I will cover that somehow.  

There was no need to cover it.  It looks like a couple of things to me - A pen pointing at the sentiment, perhaps a gnarled finger with long fingernail or a trench/hole in the ground.  Final decision on that made.

While waiting for it all to dry, thinking what to do next, an image popped out of the page to me.  I am unsure as to whether it will appear to you but it has to me and I see it as a sign from my dear lovely Mum.  It is on the left hand page above the grass next to the branches.

If you cannot see it then I will just take it that it is all in my head and just confirms I am mad - not that I didn't already know it!

Now you have my reason for doing nothing else to it.  My Mum is still with me.

Anyway I hope you like my half finished project - well finished to me.

Why not head on over to EE and join in with this weeks challenge.

Hugz and love always to you all

  1. Beautiful colours on this Elaine - I'm pretty sure I can see a face but then I'm pretty imaginative at times :)

  2. Beautiful colours that you have used Elaine. I can deffo see that face as well so no you are not going mad, and if you are then all it means is you have a friend who is going mad with you lol.

  4. I just love your journal pages are not mad,there is an image there.
    On your 3rd photo,it looks like a log going out over a pond, probably for the fairies to sit on while they dip their toes in the water....I know what you are

  5. Hi Elaine, I'm a huge fan of the Dylusion inks and I adore how you have used them. I haven't used a journal book yet but this has inspired me to get one. The first thing I saw when I looked at this was a face looking back at me - or is that just me? I hadn't been drinking, honestly! Thanks for joining us at Craftroom Challenge, and good luck with the draw. Julia x X X
