Journal Updates

It’s been a while since I posted some journal pages….here are a few….

This one (above) I worked on just after the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.  It was a powerful day, but in ways I did not expect.

This one I’m still not sure if it is finished…

This was just playing with watercolor crayons on top of gesso and playing with stamps.

And finally, this was worked and reworked page of frustration.  It very much reflected my feelings so finally I let it be!

TMTA-Transfers

Here are my 2 ATCs made with gel medium transfers:

Here the transfers are the flower in the lower left and the narrow bands stacked were from a magazine photo of books on a shelf.

This one has a transfer of a flower in upper right.  The flower on the bottom is a rub on. The orange flower is made of several layers of punched out shapes and has  Ranger Glossy Accents on it (hence the odd glare).  Then I made another transfer of just print over the entire background.  Thanks for looking.

Again, if anyone is interested, for each $10 donation to my Avon Walk for Breast Cancer I will send a card in thanks.  I still don’t know the easy way of creating this link, but if you cut and paste this you will get to my Avon Walk page.

TMTA-Triangles

Here is my ATC using scissored and torn triangles.  There is a variety of hand painted, hand colored, and magazine papers with additional accents in colored pencil and markers.

I am planning to fund raise for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and I will be creating small format art with envelopes mounted on a flat card that can be framed or used as a note card.  For each $10 (US) donation, I will send out one handmade art card, signed and dated as a thank you.  More details and photos of samples to come, but anyone interested now, please cut and paste this link to my Avon Walk page.  In the form make sure you leave me your address so I can send along your artwork! Thank you for looking!

Where she leads…

This week the Three Muses challenge is to use maps.  It was such a synchronous moment as I was just in the process of working on a journal page with a map.  This map is quite important to me…I just signed up to walk in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and the map shows the start and end points in NYC: Randalls Island and Pier 84.

I am walking this year because my sister asked.  She is a breast cancer survivor.  At 36 years old she was diagnosed and through a series of grueling events, she was extremely lucky.  Lucky because they found not only the first type of cell, but a second type that was a fast growing aggressive cell. Her doctor instructed her that if she still (!) had any living female relatives they should immediately have mammograms.  It was a bad time for all, but again, luck was with her and she is now healthy and no one else has been diagnosed.  I know this is familiar territory for many out there.

Last week my sister contacted me to see if I wanted to join her in the walk…she’s never walked before, nor have I.  She decided that after many have walked for her, it was her turn.  Well, as little girls, she being older by 2 years, I followed her everywhere.  And now it is time for us to walk again.  The journal page is about how important this is for me to do and how overwhelmed I feel at the same time.  It is a big commitment…I must raise $1,800.00 (US).  If there is anyone out there inclined to help me out….please consider a donation…I hate the act of fundraising, but unless I ask, I will not receive and unless I raise the funds I cannot walk.   Thank you for looking and for your support.

I am including a link here to my Avon Walk page. I know there is a more elegant way of doing this, I just don’t know it!
