Swimming with Louise
Many, many years ago when I was a young girl my mama found an amazing book in an op shop and bought it home for me. Unfortunately my younger self was less than gracious for this 'second hand book!'
The book was 'Peg's Fairy Book' and went on to be very loved by me still to this day as the magical illustrations really captured my imagination.
When Sharon's gorgeous hand made journal arrived I decided to take my inspiration from Peg.
This is my take on a section of one of her pages. If you ever get the chance to have a look at this book, do take the opportunity.
I used lots of shiny things to create this page. Sprays and paints and inks.
As there are lots of pages left and my first page was really just art and no journaling I did another quick page using one of my hand carved stamps.
Deep, dark and mysterious
Is the sea.
As deep, dark and mysterious
Lucky for us
Art is a key.
To unlock our souls
So we can see.
