Rhiannon


I started this painting a few weeks ago before the infliction of my most recent spate of illness and finally, I finished her. It wasn't until last night when I did so that I discovered her name, Rhiannon.

Oracle Card Book

As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, I like to create my own books for my card sets, where I have my own notes about each image and it's symbolism as I become familiar with them. It has taken me a long time to find a suitable notebook for my faery oracle cards, but finally after much searching and waiting (as I didn't want to pay the full price for the book I discovered) I finally brought this one, ready to customise: 



Before and after pics of the cover:


Some handmade paper and a few stamps later and the front was much better having covered that honey loving bear...


Before and after pics of the inside:


Unfortunately Winnie was also a feature of each page inside, though it was nothing some brown paper and stamps couldn't fix. The downside to this is that the book is massive now because of the added paper but I usually add annotated copies of the card pictures anyway so it was bound to happen sooner or later. The card title will go at the top and the number between the two leaves in the bottom left corner.

Where Have I Been?

The short answer to that little question is ill. I've been in a lot of pain with kidney problems, compacted with a gastric virus and three (yes THREE) periods in the space of two weeks. It has, I can easily say, not been fun and the pain has been so bad I've barely been able to sit up to the computer let alone actually concentrate on writing blog posts or anything. Still, this week I have begun feeling much better and I have a lot of stuff and ideas to share as well as some news and new projects I am involved with, all of which (plus the posts I promised a while ago and never got round to writing) on the way.

I hope you have all been well in my absence and I look forward to doing the rounds to see what you have all been up to while I've been AFK.

Blessings to you all x
