Last week I went to visit my Mum in Gibraltar - it was her 87th birthday! It was touch and go as to whether I'd be well enough to go and at one point I thought I would have to postpone my visit. But... I prayed that I would receive strength and lots of people were praying for me too so its not surprising really that I was well enough to go - God does hear and answer prayer :) Thank you so much to all of you who prayed. I had a great time with my Mum and also my brother, my nephew and his lovely wife and kids, my great-niece and great-nephew!!! Teresita, my great-niece, 6 years old, kept wanting to do 'art' with me and of course I was delighted to oblige.
However, it was pretty exhausting and I was really pleased to get home again. When I picked up my art journal again I did a quick, really fun to do backround and it turned into this page:
I've used this Crafters Workshop Mini Cubist stencil before to make a house shaped card (see it here). With texture paste it works very well for a house. The roof, windows and doors are washi tape.
