Poetry Book Journal Page

Hi I haven't put anything on for a few days as I have been unwell (my ME (chronic fatigue) has been playing up) and i've been stuck in bed unable to function.  'Im starting to feel a bit better but now I have no where to craft as my lovely hubby is trying to create a bit more room for me to do my Art!!!  
So I thought I would post another page out of my Homage to Browning Journal.  This book cost me £1 and has the poems on the right hand page but the left hand page was blank.  It was damaged and the cover was a bit mouldy but the paper is gorgeous to work with!
This page is done over a poem called 'After Death' and its a bit unusual for me.  I keep going back to it thinking I will do more to it, but never end up doing so - I think it my stay like this!

Background done with Dylusions sprays and then used a distress stamp pad to blend through a stencil - then a light spritz of perfect pearl mist.  It loses a bit in the picture from real life!
Weird, I know, but for those of you who dont know - I like Weird!!!

  6. That's a great idea for a journal, I 'll have to keep my eye out for a second hand poetry book like that. Thanks for the inspiration! Alison in Australia

    1. Thank Alison - its is an amazing book to work in - though it took me a while to get over the feeling that i would be destroying it if i worked in it - i love books and hate to see them damaged - but as this one was already a bit on the sorry side i found it easier. I feel like im giving it a new lease of life and I also like the poems as they can give you inspiration if you are feeling creatively blank. Good luck finding one! x


Thanks for leaving a message - I really enjoy reading them! x
