Some Journal Pages

Sometimes you find an image and it just speaks out to you. That is what happened when I saw these two sisters. I love their dresses and they look like they depend on each other. I wish I knew their names and what their story was.

Life brings us many things. I have found if you just stand up and face it, the worst is really not as bad as you thought it was. Little did I know when I did this page how soon I would be tested. Some of the border images are from Nancy at Crow about.

If you follow your heart, generally speaking things work out. Sometimes a little common sense helps, but the heart speaks first. The hearts are from Ceremony.

After I did this journal page I was taught the lesson of true friends. Thank you friends for touching my heart.

Good advice at any time. I don't know if you can see the background on this journal page. I used a couple of different crackle paints out on the market to try them out. I like the Tim Holtz one, although I did have to thin it a bit.

These are journal pages I was working on before I fell and broke my hip. My Art Quote Journal was all but finished. Only two pages to finish. I had scanned these and was going to post them that night or next morning. The best laid plans.... So I am posting them today. My goal this week is to finish the two pages that are still backgrounds. Hope you enjoy these.

Elizabeth, it is wonderful to see you blogging again! I always enjoy reading your blog and seeing your art. You're a great inspiration.

Thank you Nancy! All of the words of encouragement have definitely touched me and have sustained me through my rehab. I am hoping to be able to get back into my studio soon.

Elizabeth all these pages are wonderful. I have been schooled a bit myself this summer in the lesson of not knowing what's comin' around the bend.... I must be a hard-headed woman though. Looks like I may not be done yet :) But I have learned to follow my heart and trust my instincts, especially artistically.
Take care,

Elizabeth - these journal pages are so sweet and loving. The one you completed the day of your accident is beyond compare. Thank you for just by being you. I was telling my husband what a wonderful group we have here - it's warm and caring people like you that make it so.
