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…

  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.
