It feels like absolute ages since I have blogged right here – and indeed, since I’ve spent time in my art room. Life has been so crazy, but I’m happy to say that things are beginning to slow down and I can finally spend more time in my room.
TWO shares today – but my piece that I want to share with you right now, is for CSI: Color Stories Inspiration. This is a colour palette that reminded me of macaroons! Gorgeous icy pastels! Em has designed yet another fabulous sketch for this one too; love that I got to use THREE photographs to create this piece.
Here is what I did.
Scheme : all there
Evidence : flowers & leaves, text print, cursive title, triangles, decorative border
Testimony : Weekend Mental Health writing prompt – The Healing Has Begun
Never in my wildest of dreams could I have imagined the journey that we had to take when daddy passed away. I knew it would be hard – and it still is at times. I knew there would be sadness – there still is. I knew that there would be emotional troubles affecting us and our decisions – there still is, but we’re dealing with them as they come. In truth, it is becoming easier as time goes by; as time heals all wounds. I am blogging less and less on my Dear Beary blog. I am crying less; though I have moments of missing him that knocks the breath from my lungs. But I just cannot look past my blessings. I have the most amazing child, who I love endlessly and would do absolutely anything and everything for. I am so very fortunate to have a second great love. A man that supports me, makes me smile, makes me laugh all the time, understands and accepts our situation and all the baggage that comes along with it. A man that adores my daughter to the ends of the Earth and treats her as he would his own. Family that support me wholeheartedly and I know are always, always there for me. With all the troubles I have been through, I have the love and support to match it – and then some. I really, really am so very blessed!
