How Sweet the Moonlight

How Sweet the Moonlight

Hello friends

I hope you are having a great weekend, it’s sunny Sunday here in my part of the world and tomorrow is a bank holiday – yay!

This spread is from my 6 x 6 journal, I started by covering the pages with scraps of paper and ephemera, then added paint and inks.  The swirly stamp is one I got free with a magazine.  I did some embossing and added the quote which is from the Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare.  Shakespeare is supposed to be England’s finest writer, but unfortunately I was turned off him when I was at school.  We had to study Julius Caesar for an examination and the teacher got us to read some parts of it out loud in class.  I remember her shouting at me “Say it with feeling!”.  The trouble was I had no idea what I was reading, it was like a foreign language to me.  I think maybe a bit of instruction and explanation would have helped, shouting at me certainly didn’t!

I am going to try and keep up with my blog over the next couple of weeks, but Heritage Open Days starts on 6 September and there are still many things to sort out, so I may have to take a bit of time out.  We can get into the venue, an old church, next Saturday morning and then we have 5 days to clean and tidy the place up, transport and set up a huge exhibition ready for the opening at 11am on Thursday 6 September.  It’s going to be great but it is also going to be a lot of hard work.

If I disappear for a while please understand, I will still be trying to do bits and pieces of art when I can.

Big love

AJ 🙂

  1. Love the page, especially the purple and swirlies. I love Shakespeare, but was fortunate to see some live plays, which helped.
