and bound into 8 individual signatures, the following a particular favourite, has become my journal of the weekend retreat’s thoughts and photos….

Such a colourful display, Samm. It is said that colour is good for the soul…it has healing properties and brings a smile to even the most serious of countenances.

Yay, fabulous colours – always raise the spirit. What a great idea to turn the papers into journals (one I will definitely be copying)..lovely stuff!

I know that every artist’s work is a piece of their soul, but would you ever consider selling some of your art? I stumbled across this page by accident while searching for mixed media art and fell in love instantly. Would you ever consider making a recreation of this piece (the last journal cover pictured) and selling it? I would be extremely interested if you would. Fabulous work. Simply decadent.
