Love You To The Sky And Back

Good evening, I know, I have been such a bad blogger, but don't worry I have been working on catching up with posts and I have a real treat for you all over the next 5 days, I am trying to get most of them written up as we speak lol.
Today I want to show you a very special Journal Page that is dedicated to my mum who I love very much, every time I visit or she rings she always says at the end "Love you to the sky and back", it's only been recently that I heard that most people say moon lol, but for me if I feel down or lonely, just looking at the sky makes me smile.
This was the challenge (What makes you smile) set by Our Creative Corner Challenge Blog and this journal page was the first thing that came into my mind.
I also took some step by step pics to show you how I made it, whenever I work in my journal I always try different techniques and this was not different.  I decided that my Derwent Inktense Blocks that I got for Christmas one and a half years ago!!!!
I would like to also enter the following challenges -
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Mist and Stamp (in the background I used LSG, Bloom Spray stamp is script and alphabet)
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
A Sprinkle of Imagination Challenge - Anything Goes (using products they sell in the shop)

Here is the final page, lots of close up pics of the texture and then a step by step :-)

I love how the camera caught the tainted teal on the page :-)

Right I shall be back tomorrow with this large journal page that I did for LifeBook, how about a sneak peak :-)

Ok I think I need to work on my sneak peaks lol, it's all fuzzy, not to worry I shall learn :-).
Hopefully see you tomorrow, thank you for visiting.
Happy Art :-)
Hugs Kezzy xxxxx

Fabulous page, Kezzy - so many amazing textural details and those wonderful words too. Who cares whether it's the moon or the sky? That's a whole lot of love either way.

Wow your journal pages made me smile! I love the birds carrying the hearts, and that background! However a few more comments about how you created the page alongside the photos would really help. Thank you for joining my Challenge at Our Creative Corner,barjan x
