Monthly Journal Prompt for July

My friend Roc posts a journal prompt every month, (you can find a link to her blog along my sidebar). For July the prompt was "If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?"

Well, of course all of us have lofty wishes for world peace, happiness for all, no more hunger in the world, those certainly are wishes that I carry in my heart everyday of my life. Journaling however, is also something personal, so I decided to journal about more personal wishes for this particular prompt.

The background was created with the usual, - acrylic paints, gesso, old book pages, stamps, stencils and spray inks,wax creations, charcoal pencils and pens.
the colourful words from Tumblefish Studios at Deviant Scrap
The images came from Altered Artifacts. The border came from a sheet created by Gail Smith from Shabby Cottage Studios

Thanks for visiting and have a great week

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
