AJC - Page 39

Here's my page for this word...went with the theme rather than the actual word, as I loved these words so much! They conjured up such a strong picture in my mind!!
Think I must be a bit calmer...DD1 had her first physio since the op today and came straight home and started to weight bear on her leg that has been non-weight bearing for six weeks now...was very brave, as the muscles have weakened a lot, and it collapses quite quickly...she is one determined girl!

AJC - Page 38

I was sitting here creating with the 9/11 service on the TV next to me, and this is what I produced from the feelings that inspired in me.

It's one of my simpler pieces, LOL, but there's more going on than meets the eye! It's an oil paint b/g blended with a paper, and duplicated with different blending modes. Then I blended a stock photo of a face onto an appropriately shaped part of the oil paint design.
Of course my camel is in there too to help me create my 'masterpiece'!

Now I know what this looks like to me, but if you prefer to see an angel that's fine too!! Basically, on this day of all, it seemed fitting to have a piece that encourages us all to go forward in a positive way... TFL!

AJC 2011

Well, DD1 has had her first op and it went as well as it could...we have to wait and see if the badly torn cartilage will knit together again after the repair, as it was such a raggy tear. The surgeon only even attempted a repair as he knew she has to have another operation in a couple of months. otherwise he would just have chopped the torn piece off. He gives it a 25% chance of healing. If not, it will be removed when they next operate on the cruciate ligament. This will of course give her a higher chance of arthritis in her early 20s than if it repairs. Needless to say eveything is crossed, prayers are being offered and candles lit!
Again, everyone in London was SO kind, it really did help the situation.

I'd like to thank everyone on here who has left me such lovely comments, I've been sat here in tears reading them all on my various'll never know how much they have been appreciated.

Anyway, although I feel like making dark, brooding pages, LOL, I really told myself that I needed to make a calmer page, and I think I did it!!!

TFL and thanks so much for all your lovely comments!
