Who am I? for Sallyanne.

This month I have the pleasure of working in Sallyanne's art journal, titled 'Who Are You?' Now there's a question that has a million answers.

I really like this AJ.  Not sure if it's hand made or not, but although it is A4 sized it is very light.

And so............  As you all may know, my health took a serious turn for the worse earlier this year.  As a person living with cancer the disease becomes the total focus of all around you.  The appointments with health professionals are all consuming and it is very scary.  I must add here that I am doing very welSo my decision was to describe myself thus.....I am NOT my Disease!!.  Here is what I did.

 For the background I did a lot of writing about how I felt about the entire thing.  Lots of angst, some paint and gesso.

Next I added my flower.  I wanted it to be very definite and a focal image, so I used a little pointer that I learned from Jenny James.  I gessoed it first.

On the other page I used a stencil to print my words. The journalling is still showing through.

I continued to work on my flower, it needed to be very brilliant, plenty of paint and several colours.  Red, orange, black.  Some stamping to list the things I am.

Some details.  Includes stamping and finished the flower petals with some Viva gold to pick up the texture.

The finished spread.  I do hope you are happy with it Sallyanne.
