More Finn Journal pages

My pages today show eldest granddaughter Becca, so I thought I would do a quick catch-up for those who supported Becca and I when she was diagnosed with Crohn's disease and was in hospital for most of the autumn 2012 up until the beginning of December. Thank you to you all who sent cards and good wishes, you know who you are and Becca and I were so pleased to to have that support.  She had two six hour operations and some of her intestines taken out at that time and had to wait a year to see what the next steps would be. Since then she has had another operation and has made a remarkable recovery and we are so pleased with the progress she has made. She is now at 6th form college and doing well with her studies and will hopefully be learning to drive soon. Oh my gosh where do the years go?

So onto the project.
The base of the pages are kraft card, covered with text paper and gesso.
Cut and torn strips of card, canvas and tissue tape etc. were added and then gesso through some masks.
Next I added lace, tapes and trims and glued in the photos.
I added staples, gems and embellishments …..
….. and cut more small pieces and scraps and tucked into places.
I stamped with archival and then splattered with tea …..
… and walnut crystal ink.
I used a soft pencil to add lines around the photos etc. and added chit-chat stickers and some of my own journaling words.

Although this is a scheduled post I will be home today from my holiday, I will let you know what we did and saw sometime soon.

Have a great weekend.
