'Bloom', art journal page, mixed media
I started this page off in order to try out a couple of hand-made stamps, made out of craft foam. Then I added these lines of poetry from my book of female poets:
'Clinker-built, the bloom, overlapped its petals
Like clapboards; like a boat I had; like the feathers of a wing;
A chunky, ruddy, beautiful Boeotian thing.'
From a poem by Edna St Vincent Millay: 'The strawberry shrub'
After the lines of poetry, I added doodles of the girl and flower from my doodle book. They seemed to fit the clap-board imagery.
This first art journal of mine is turning out to be mainly about poetry. Maybe I am giving myself a hint to start writing poems again! I haven't written any poems for over a year.
I found a stamping forum called UKstampers. They are at :-
For scrapbookers, card-makers, ATC-ers, etc. I joined.
