Back to Life!!!

Anyone who knows me will know that I have been having another battle with the big C, just after my last post I became quite ill with back pains and lots of sickness which was eventually diagnosed in late October.  The breast cancer had returned in my spine.  But thankfully after 15 weeks of chemotherapy and Herceptin it is now inactive.  During that time I didn't do any crafting, my mojo had been lost!

In February I decided it was time to get back to it, Linda from Just Scrapbooking was holding an Art Journal day class in Stevenage, as I was feeling well we made a weekend of it and drove up on the Friday, stayed in a Travel Lodge for the bargain price of £19 (no expense spared!!), had a lovely dinner in the local pub with my friend Alexa who was also attending the class.

It was great to be playing with paints and inks again, we made a journal with various types of papers and hard covers, the book was bound with hand stitching.  The front is covered with torn book paper which has been slightly rolled at the edges then covered with beeswax.

Here are a few of the pages.

The Front Cover (not yet finished)


  1. So lovely that you are posting again - Yey!! Hope you do some FAB layouts in June (if not before) so I can see what you were up to! xxx

  2. Will do, I'll put those art journal pages on from the Gelli Plate when they are finished off. I've also been doing a Big Picture Class so will add those too. (Guess you are not coming in June then :-( ) xx

  3. So good to have my inky friend back again, you are such an amazing friend Sue, you have been through so much but still have a smile on your face. Long may it stay there! xxx
