I had thought I had uploaded this, but I guess not... Marie has the journal right now.
I had the privilege of having DeeDee's journal here on Earth Day. The sun is the metal casing for a tea light. I used Derwint Inktense blocks and acrylic paints for the spread, and the lettering is done with ink and gel pen.
I thought I'd posted this spread... but it must have only been on Milli's, not here. There is some lovely work in Deedee's journal already, and I really struggled with this one! Isn't it funny sometimes things just come naturally, and others you have to wring out...
I went for some heavily textured collage .. and a few of my favourite animals, funny how a cat theme came through, so swapped a panther for a koala fro a little variation. Wouldn't it be great if we could all fly and be free? I wish...
Hope you enjoy, Deedee.xx
Throughout our lives we take many journeys. Some journeys are exciting and wonderful. Then, there are the journeys that are sad and heart breaking.
I went to Catholic schools for 12 years. In those years we were taught about angels. As I have gotten older, my mind has returned to thinking about angels and how they are with us on our journeys. That is why I dedicated my page to the angels who guide us on our wonderful and heart breaking journeys.
In school, I learnt a prayer dedicated to Guardian Angels. I remember it to this day. The day after I decided to do the page on my Guardian angel and to use the prayer I received a letter in the mail with that same prayer and a coin with an angel on it. Was that a coincidence or an answer?
I placed the coin on my page. The background was made from ripped maps. I tried to use a piece of map of all the different places in the world that we ,15 artists, live.
