Journal 52 : Week 47

Journal 52 is a weekly prompt from Effy Wild (Free HEREthat I'm creating on a deck of jumbo playing cards 3.5'' x 4.75'' (8.5 x 12 cm)Each card will include stitch, a found word, and be inspired by the project I've been working on that week or what's lying leftover on my work table. See the original post HERE
#47 : Love I really enjoy the effect of painted fusible so decided that a heart using this technique would be fun this week. Inspired also by a couple of cards I completed recently which I don't think I've shared with you. 
Refreshing to start with a white background. This was an especially quick one because I have even less time than usual. Very happy that I have still managed to create a card this week including the colours and textures that I love.
I am extremely busy at work and also busy at home on a couple of projects I can't share yet. Hope you are making some time for things you love amongst the busy of end-of-year organising. Take care of you ♥

#46 : Hope. Another prompt that is so on point for my current mood. Inspired by my latest art journal page remembering my Pink Ribbon celebrations and all the roses in my garden are starting to bloom wonderfully. I just love the end of Spring - full of promise and hope ♥ I began with a recent piece of gelli printing and when I went looking for a rosebud serviette I changed to some spring blossom.

Book of Days : Self-portrait

I really wanted to do at least one page from a Book of Days lesson this month, and this one is a graphite transfer self-portrait designed to celebrate all of our proudest moments for the year. 2020 will be remembered by everyone as the year that COVID-19 came to New Zealand. For my family and me, it’s the year that I fought breast cancer and won! Last month some children at my school hosted a Pink Ribbon Fundraising week in support of the Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand. It included a High Tea event where I was invited to speak to share my story and celebrate my positive outcome. I used this photo from that event for my journal page
This doesn't look like me but perhaps she is my inner wiser self. I don't love it and I don't hate it and I've completed a page in my art journal and played with paint today so calling it a win ♥
Effy's just released all the info about her collaborative year-long class Book of Days 2021 HERE. Registration opens 15th November (that's Monday NZ time) US$99 until December 31st, at which point it will go up to $120.
I've done Book of Days for the past 5 years. THIS LINK will take you to all the work I've ever done inspired by those lessons.
