Hello, Carol with you this Wednesday. As the weeks progress and we get deeper into this pandemic I spend more time in my craft room. I am lucky enough to be working from home, so a new working week schedule is forming, and as the nights are now lighter I’m at my craft desk after work to have a chill and clear my mind.

I started the above journal layout for me…didn’t know where it would go, or whether it would be a set of pages just for me, but, as it progressed I decided to share as my weekly DT piece.

I started by laying down some acrylic paint. When my base was dry, I added further paint marks, stencilling and using the edge of an old plastic card, and the tops from polish bottles…

using the stamps from the indio blu mixed media box, I stamped using black ink and added some more texture to the pages…. I then wrote “hope” and painted it. We all need hope at this moment in time don’t we?

Whilst trying to find some plain cardstock to stamp some flowers on, I found the yellow flowers – I close cut these and adhered these to the page.

I added some doodled thoughts around the circles and couldn’t help but add my 4th bee…lol

Lets hope this will all be over soon…

See you next week and don’t forget stay safe. xx
