In the Wanderlust programme that I am following there are a number of activities - one of them is a journal and whilst I was ill this page prompt came up. 'What's the bravest thing you've ever done?' - well I thought long and hard about this - I went down the crazy brave route and came up with sky diving and back packing on my own, then I thought deeper and thought about the thing that I really had found hardest to do - sadly there were a few difficult memories to dredge through there - but in the end it came down to telling my girls that their beautiful and wonderful daddy had died. My page represents that day for me - the day the earth cried and the heavens gained an angel too soon.
Here's is the whole page - I used distress stains to quickly colour the page - and stencils from Clarity and Dina Wakely and Sheena to create the scene. I also used a cloud mask from clarity.
A close up - the lady is from Clarity, the fence and lampost sheena.
Representing my little girls....
And this is representing Shaun.....
I found this page very therapeutic - but also very difficult.
Have a great Friday!
Lots of love and hugs
