Found this quote this evening after a really unpleasant exchange with people using offensive language on my niece's FB page.
I'm so cross that these 'names' are being used as terms of insult, and nobody else is willing to speak up and say these words are offensive. If nobody speaks up these words will become commonplace and accepted generally, and that would be just plain wrong!
So I was REALLY cross, LOL and frustrated as well...then I found these words and just knew that sleep was going to be late for me tonite, LOL!!!

This week's prompt really sparked my imagination!!
Although I don't really feel fear in regard to what I'm making now, and
showing in this incredibly supportive world, when it comes to showing my pages
to people, even family, IRL, I know that fear, LOL :) It's not that I need
their approval or anything, it's more that they will feel nothing for the
page(s) that I love so much!!!
So that's what I went with! I wanted a more simple page
today, to try and make the 'creativity' more obvious...hhhmmm not sure that one
worked, LOL, by the number of layers I have in this page, but I'm happy with
the effect :)

Had fun trying to get an image in my head in order to
illustrate this word!
Then saw some words something about talking to self being
the soul having a conversation..ugh can't remember it exactly now, sorry!
Anyways, that sent me off down a path looking at illustrating the soul, LOL,
which led to a feeling of using light and dark...the soul enclosed.
Of course with the mind map still in my head as well, I just
loved these words about thinking :)
So there it is! The inner workings (summarised and
considerably shortened, LOL!!) of my mind!!!!

When I saw this word as the prompt, I wondered what on earth
I was going to do with that!! So I decided to try and illustrate the meaning
rather than have the actual word on my page! These words seemed perfect for
this purpose, and off I set!
OMW! How much this page evolved! It started as something
I'm honestly amazed at how what I'm making is changing (I
thought I'd found my 'thing' through last year's Caravan!) and how much I'm
being stretched almost without realising it once I start a page!!
Have had a couple of hours of pure relaxation and joy in my
own little world making this page, so thank you Tangie, from the bottom of my
heart, for inspiring this in me!
Well, LOL! Don't really have a clue where this page came
from...I have fairly recently changed my thinking about a couple of things and
have tried to act accordingly...I just did it, without talking to anybody about
it, and I think that's what this page is trying to say, LOL!
Going off alone (although my experience was in my mind, not
a physical disappearing act, LOL!) and changing something, without anyone
And then, imagine me sitting here with a little wry smile on
my face at the naked lady with wings illustrating clandestine rotfl!!!! x

DD1 is having a hard time getting motivated for her exams this month after having struggled with her injury since August. I wanted to try and inspire her through all the hard work and drudgery of revision and catching up,
to keep her hopes and dreams in sight!
This is one gorgeous kit and was perfect for what I wanted! You can find it HERE at SBG!

Two beautiful new kits out from Creative Victorian Designs! Vale of Darkness is an absolute stunner - I LOVED using it to create this, my first real attempt at 'realistic fantasy'! Nightshade is a lovely mini kit perfect for so many kinds of pages! I loved these words and the kit had the perfect feel to it to illustrate them! You can find Vale of Darkness HERE and Nightshade HERE! TFL! Bernie x
WEll, this is what happens when I let my mind wander randomly among thoughts of brains and what on earth goes on in there for me, rotfl!!!
I wanted to try and illustrate trying to actually find my brain, LOL, as in the 'real' me, amongst all the stress of legal dealings and schools and exams and other life 'stuff' that just gets in the way!
However, this is what evolved when I started playing!!
I think the 'stuff' is in the darkness, and the patch of light over the head is the real, artistic, creative part of me that sometimes gets pushed down by the darkness, but other times shines out brighter because of the darkness...blimey that sounded a bit deep, LOL!!!!
I'm so pleased to have started this journey now!!
