52 pages 2011

Page 26 Alliance.                                                                                                                          
I used some dimensional paint to create these raised circles and dots, when the paint was dry I was able to lay my page on top and rub over it with a piece of red seal wax.                                                                                                                                     

I then washed over the wax with a purple watercolour.                                                                                

Next I added red and black acrylic.                                                                                                            


Finally on the front I added these stickers that I have had for a few years, they represent an online community that I used to spend a lot of time with.I added red shimmerz paint and some gold wax to the edges. My title is 'IAM' which is the name of the online community.                                                                                      

The back was started in the same way, I then drew graveyard gates onto the page.                                      

I added a sticker of a bat and an owl.                                                                                                        

I wrote my journalling out onto tissue paper and glued it down. It tells of how the community was very supportive of each of its members, how we accepted each other unconditionally when others would not. How many of the people became great friends in real life and not just online. I met them at the lowest point in my life, when I was very ill.they gave me the strength I needed, and made me feel like i could achieve anything.


  1. I'm so grateful for IAM because I wouldn't have met you otherwise. Even when the site went downhill, we remained friends.

    I follow your blog on RSS and love to see what you'll create next!

  2. Love your take on this one Darcy :) It's nice to know there is someone there when you need them most :D XXX

  3. Great page, I love those gates. I've not heard of IAM before and I didn't know you had been ill. I hope you are okay now hun xx
