Harmonic Convergance

This is my great  <step> nephew Mr. A. My twin brother loves him and thinks of him as a son and I do too. I love him.  There's more to this video and real life than what I can say online, but it doesn't matter. He's such a beautiful boy.  Just the teeniest tinyiest amount of love and attention and adult caring goes so very far.

You aren't alone in this

I've made a third new journal "55" that I'll talk about in the near future. But for tonight, this is the journal spread I'm posting.

Some really wonderful things happened to me in 2014. And some really hard things. Life is so very beautiful and so very hard. 

 Once again I used Sheer Heaven to transfer this image of an angel. Like so many others artists, I construct my journals using Fabriano Artistico Hot Press Watercolor Paper, 140 lb, 22 x 30 inches. 

I used spatters of paint and glitter and added a star embellishment. 

I did the brush lettering I love so much with a Pentel brush pen and stamped the text with some vintage rubber stamps I hoard. More paint and glitter sparkles and another star.  For what it's worth, I always stand when I brush letter so I use my whole arm and you can't be too precious about it.

We all need reassurance we aren't alone. Even when it feels that way. I hope the Angels look after all of us.
