Upside Down!

When my dad passed away last September I felt like my world had been turned upside down.  I had a really difficult time with his passing.  I found out he was sick in July, discovered it was cancer in August and before my brain could really wrap itself around the inevitable, he left me on 9/11.  Kinda appropriate for a hero to leave on a day honoring and remembering other heros.  So, this page is for my dad and when I can write on it without breaking down in tears, I will.  

Yes, this page IS upside down in my journal, I wouldn't have it any other way!

This was done with Ranger Dylusions and a couple of different Dyan Reaveley stamp sets.  I did use a glimmer spray on the sun to make it sparkly.  The flowers were colored with Dylusions and Pitt Pens from Faber-Castell.  Just something fun I thought I would share with you today.  I've really enjoyed getting into art journaling.  I find it very soothing to the soul.  If you haven't tried it, you should!
Hope you all have a wonderful day!  Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Beautiful page Lea and I think the upside-down is the perfect way to express how you feel.

  2. It's a great page, artistically stunning and heartfelt. And yes, the whole process is soothing. Hope you share more.

  3. Beautifully done page, and a great tribute! I lost my Mother 3 years ago, and I sort of did the same thing, and started a journal. I'm not as artistic as you mine doesn't look as lovely as yours...
