Messenger of Hope

the blue background for my storm pages was a result of mixing too much paint for some journal pages back in October…

then I came across a good sized image of the lady in my art cave (sorry I do not know who to credit for the image)… 

scraps of paper, washi tape, rub ons, paints, white gel pen and some pressed roses that I embedded on the page under a thin layer of tissue with gel medium helped my pages come together…

the words “Messenger of Hope” were last to present themselves… 

“When the world says, ‘Give up’, Hope whispers, ‘Try it one more time.’” ~Anonymous

  15. The extra blue paint , was meant to be there for this beautiful pages, my dear Patty-and looking fantastic with the little accents of rosa colours, which even are real roses- what a great idea to cover with a tissue piece, for them to saty safe. The bird looks like he is the messenger, bringing comfort and a sweet rose- Also the rose in Denmark stands for Jesus Christ, as he is referred to as the rose, in a danish hymn.
    It is truly a message of hope and love.
