Its been a while since i did any blogging. First i lost my dad then got depression then have struggled creatively but finally i made a small canvas. Its not brilliant. not even very good but its something and i am pleased to have something creative done at last. I will get there and hopefully be blogging more again too.
Missed my blogging friends so it will be nice to get back to some blogging too.

Some Gel print art

Its been a tough few weeks and if i am honest  ... few years. Still we are struggling to come to terms with Mam going in a home and coping with Dads death but now i do have a little more time for art, although i was finding it hard to get inspired until .... yesterday when after a month's wait my Gelli plate finally arrived. I thought i would get right into it and make a start so I created 3 sheets to begin with (need much more time to play with that beauty) with one of the sheets I decided to create some atc's. So the three you see below are all from just one sheet of gel print i made. Hope you will enjoy them. It feels good to be creating again.

My sad news and a little art

I have been missing a while again as you may or may not have noticed. Sadly we lost my Dad on March 23rd. He died while i was there caring for him and went peacefully (which we feel blessed for) The funeral was Tuesday gone and since then, because of mam being unable to live alone, we have also had the trauma of moving my Mam to a beautiful care home especially for Alzheimers victims. Its been a very sad time for my family. I just wanted to give you that final update and while i am here i will share my one piece of art with you too. This is a brand new Journal I am working on. So far, only the cover is finished. I would like to enter this for the challenge over at Visible Image where I purchased the gorgeous face stamp

Spring Card and Collage Arch

Hi all, my apologies if i have not yet gotten around to your blog. I will, I promise. Things with dad have been pretty bad this week so have been unable to spend much time online. I hope to get some blogging visiting time very soon.
ABOVE ... I created this Mixed Media collage arch while at my parents in between jobs, its a good way to brighten the day when things are getting me down. Dad had the doctor out yesterday so had to put all the bits away quick smart lol.

This is a springtime card using spring colours and also a little pink. I used Crafty individuals image for this one.
I would like to enter it into the Crafty Bloggers network challenge
