Art Journaling is a way to run away from home...

   Just a personal note before I get to the art journal page:
I am in South Africa at the moment. So I added this text now, as this journal page has been created before I left the Netherlands about 3 weeks ago. The purpose of this journey was to celebrate my mom's 90 th birthday on the 19th of March.
Her Creator chose to take her Home for ever on the 4th of March.
I will still enjoy SA for about 10 days. Have to get home quickly as I will become a grandmother for the very first time at the very beginning of April, God willing of course. 

Start with a black piece of A5 size cardstock. Adere some torn pieces of bookpaper and cover it with some gesso. Apply Structure paste over the stencil and leave to dry. Sprinkle some Nuamce powders over the page and mist with water. Leave to dry. Stamp the butterfy collages in the background. Stamp the wording onto a seperate piece of white cardstock, cut it out and adhere to the page. 

LOVE the intensity of the color ..  

I've added some white accents to the edges of the stencilled structure paste. 

Go play!

Yes, I cut it up, but can still use it as one stamp. 


  1. Hi Ellie, a stunning page and a wonderful sentiment.
    So sorry to read about your Mom, very sad for you.
    Hope everything goes well for the arrival of your new Grandchild.

  2. Oh Ellie, wat vreselijk dat je moeder heengegaan is... maar ze is in "Goede Handen". Ik wens jou en je familie veel sterkte, en binnenkort veel vreugde met je eerste kleinkind ! Wauw, je ziet er echt nog niet uit als een "oma" hoor ! Groetjes, Enny

  3. PS : vergeet ik nog te zeggen, dat je pagina prachtig is !!!! Groetjes, Enny
