Monika's entry in Reniet's journal

Reniet's journal has been challenging for me not least because of the (for me) difficult theme of  "Laughter in spite of pain". 

I had an idea for starters which promptly went away as I dove in with wild abandon first by sewing a mask then with collage and then layer upon layer of water soluble crayons, acrylic paint, markers, and gel pen. 

I did not let my lack of direction worry me but rather trusting myself that it would all work out in the end and enjoy myself.

 It was a wild journey with many twists and turns and layers but after several days all the disparate pieces finally fit together yesterday.

I have added some more bling to the already gorgeously colourful spine.

So thank you Reniet for challenging me and helping me grow and think outside the box and trusting the journey rather than a plan. I hope you will like the page.


  1. Oh wow I LOVE it. The mask fits perfectly. Beth will love the extra bling.

  2. Mon your entry is wonderful so much depth and colour and movement - just fabulous :)

  3. Wow...your spread is so good...very inspiring. Lots of detail and very pertinent to the theme.

  4. Love It! Am really looking forward to seeing this! It has so much to explore.
