who deserves a crown?

...this is my very first blog post this year!!!
...had forgotten how time pass with the house full of  children, husband, boyfriends and girlfriends!

...and now we are reorganizing our youngest daughters room - I have the feeling like living in IKEA.
Tomorrow the last trip will be over and everything finished... I hope!

This is my entry to Art Journal Journey, where the theme this month is "crowns". Pls, go and check it out if you like art journaling! Great site!

I went a bit crazy creating the background, with all in all , 7 different masks and stencils. I just couldn't stop myself...(hi, hi...)

The stamps are from Tuscan Rose and Heidi Swapp.

And, PLEASE, don't misunderstand me - I LOVE being a mother, but sometimes it is hard with all those feelings involved. The children grow and they have to find their own ways - it is just hard to let them...(?)

I hope you all had a good start of the new year and that it will continue to be good!

Take care out there!

  5. Your pages are beautiful Lena and I do agree about mother's deserving a crown.
    Giving our children wings is not that easy because no matter how old they get, they are always our children.
    I tip my crown to you :)
    Happy New Year
