It’s Wednesday and it’s still sunny, so I think we are now enjoying summer, I hope it lasts a few weeks at least. It is so lovely, warm and bright.
You are probably wondering why I have posted my image upside down, but in fact it is the right way up, it’s just the quote that is the wrong way up. I really liked this background. It started off as a page in my journal where I cleaned off rubber stamps and stencils so it had lots of random words, letters and shapes on it. I collaged some vintage foreign ripped book pages, scraps of paper and some papers I had used to protect my work surface when spraying onto another spread. I added some colour with Inktense blocks on it and edged the pages with black watersoluable oil pastels. I really liked seeing all the layers so I thought I would just add a quote. I found this great quote attributed to A A Milne and I liked it because I am a very disorderly person. My OCD husband simply does not understand how I can work in my room surrounded by so much clutter and mess 😉 I used a new set of alphabet stamps I purchased and happily started stamping out the quote, I was pleased when I finished the first page, but I had just started the second page when I noticed the stitch I used to hold the feathers in place on my Follow Your Dreams page, then I realised that all the words were upside down! Well it was too late to do anything about it so I carried on. So should anyone look through my journal they will come to a page that looks like this. I guess that’s a happy accident.
At work we are undergoing yet another restructure in the function I work for so lots of things will change soon. I don’t know what’s going to happen with my job, but I have seen the new structure and my team does not appear on it. I do know that at the end of it I will still have a job but at the moment I just don’t know what it will be. The last time they did this to me I nearly cracked up, they put me in a role that I was totally unsuited for and still expected me to do all the duties in my old role, even though they said that role didn’t exist any more! Tomorrow I have to go to a meeting where I may find out a bit more. I am a bit more chilled out these days so I will just wait and see what they say. Lots of people throughout the whole company are worried for their jobs and I don’t think this is going to much for staff morale, we’ll see.
Anyway I hope you like my ‘upside down’ spread.
See you soon
