Art Journal Background


Its been a busy few weeks-very little time to do anything creative at all!

We have been having some work done on the house- things with my daughter, etc. Things seem to be on the up and up for now. Trying to take one day at a time.

I promised myself I would at least work in my art journal a little today, it was nice. I at least made up a background :)

I used inks, gesso and a stencil or two :)
As for an update on my daughter-she seems to be doing pretty well now. Her seizures seem to be under control as per the Video EEG monitoring they did at the hospital a couple weeks ago. It was so hard for me to tell before if some of her behavior was the seizures (which because of the type of seizures she had it was hard to tell anyway) or just flat out behavioral. Now that we know , its easier to handle. Its taking some creative thinking to handle it, but at this point things are working. Her behavior has gotten much better in the past week. I feel like I can breathe again (at least for now).

What a beautiful page you have created Kristy. I am sure journaling will help you get through all that is going on in your life right now.
Your family and Gillian are in my prayers and I think of you so very often.
Hope it is not too long before we can meet up again (shades of free breakfasts spring to mind).

I love this background! Did you start with an old book, or did you paste the text under the color? I love it.
