So this week has been a little bit stressful with some major work hours... but I did manage some fun too and some crafting.
Firstly met up with a sister from the circle journal group which was lovely and perfect. Felt like she was a real sister to me. Only problem was I couldn't stay for long but know at least it won't be the last meeting and what's more I have another 8 yet to meet!
Tonight I met another lovely friend, who despite having to share some upsetting news about another friend, was nice to catch up with.
And finally a catch up with the postcard challenge over with darcy at http://art-and-sole.blogspot.com
This week we have gone to China... I was very undecided on how to go with this as had too many ideas. So I went on another trip to the library.
First to the travel books, then the history books where I found a book about the Empress Wu...
Apparently she schemed, seduced and murdered her way to become and living god and also reinvested a lot of the writing in the language.
So I chose this symbol... Country/ Nation... Wu kept the symbol of the box and put her name symbol within the centre.
I copied the symbol freehand in pen then added the red wash in Dylusion ink and then Distress inked the edge with the Black Soot ink.
In the end a simple construction but one I love... enjoy!
Now off to tidy up the art stuff and hope for a good journey to China for my postcard friends.
