I've been a bit slack about posting some of the random pages that I've made so I thought I'd do a little catch up & then I can remove the pictures from the iPad!

This one is pieces of a Japanese newspaper + gesso, acrylic paint circles and some journaling.

This time last year Bill was lying in a hospital bed and my parents came to visit me in the chalet for the weekend - it was the last time I saw my mum alive & I treasure the memory of knowing that she actually knew who I was for part of those few days. It was wonderful to see her laughing & relaxing.

Another one using a stencil for the background, & writing. Just the never is done with stamps.

And then it's Journal 52: silhouettes

I had some fun with acrylics, Tim Holtz dies, Indigo Blu stamps, sharpie & gelly roll white pens.


  1. Fantastic pages Sally. The circle of life page must hold many memories for you.
    Love the Silhouettes pages and the words on Mr Umbrella man.

  2. Fabulous pages Sally and I know sometimes we do some pages which are more personal to us than others but hold wonderful memories

  3. Beautiful Sally - I would love you to link them to my visual journey, the circles one fits perfectly. Time is funny isn't it because it seems to go so quickly and yet it also feels like Bills stay in hospital was an eternity away, lovely that you have some happy memories of your |Mum though.
    Happy Sunday

  4. What wonderful pages, Sally - full of complex thoughts and feelings. The bubbles are beautiful, but ethereal - floating away out of reach - and the blues and greens of the last pages are so vivid and full of life, yet Umbrella Man always feels tinged with sadness to me. Can hardly believe it's a year since Bill was in hospital... and thank you for sharing your happy memories of that time with your parents, in spite of all that was going on.

  5. Thanks for sharing these pages, Sally. Beautiful and bittersweet at the same time.
