About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

Armistice Art Journaling

Today is Armistice day and I wanted to channel the emotions from that into some art journaling.  I've not worried too much about the perfectness of this piece.  I've used distress crayons to colour the poppies, hand drawn the birds and written the first verse of John McCrae's poem In Flanders Fields around the edge.

The whole thing about Remembrance is important to me, not only did my relatives fight for our freedom but also a lot of them put aside their feelings about whether or not we should be at war but many did and do pledge their allegiance to God and Country and fight for us today.

The wars of past and present have been fought in many ways, in the air, on land, at sea and by people and animals as well as through inanimate objects. 

I am so grateful that previous and future generations have and always will give their life to protect those of us who hope we never find ourselves at the front line of a war.

  1. Fabulous page Sall :-)
    It's important to me too. This year I was so lucky to get a poppy :-) One of the English ladies here had a hole bag of them - must have been sent from UK - so we can all wear one this year :-D xxxx

  2. I'm pleased you got a poppy. They don't door knock now here, it's too dangerous. I was shocked, who on earth would rob a poppy seller? I have spent three or four hours this morning crying at the Cenotaph and last nights Festival of Remembrance. I seem to get more emotional every year.
