Any port in a storm?

This months journal prompt from Dawn is "Numbers", and I am combining it with Inspiration Avenues "Nautical" theme for the week.

I know this isn't a very pretty journal page, but it is full of love all the same :D

The journalling reads:
No matter how stormy the sea or how long the voyage...
I am your Harbour

(process shots, starting with a pre messied page)

added a ripped piece of scrapbooking paper with lovely big numbers on...

tore an ocean liner from a piece of Hunkydory travel themed paper, and overlayed this with a torn piece of scrapbook paper with a tape measure and waves on from K&Co.

used acrylic paint to "stormy" the skies...

added journalling with Sakura soufflé pen and Poska paint pen, and the finishing touch...a superb lighthouse stamp from a pack sent me by my friend Silvia :D

Enough numbers for you there Dawn? :D
Enjoy :D XXX


  1. An amazing journal page Gina and I love the sentiment it means so much. Thank you for joining in with Journal Journey's again this month Dxx

  2. Your pages are fantastic, love the waves... The lighthouse stamp is really a great finishing touch :)

  3. So very cool. Love how you did this with the layers.


  4. Another very interesting page - love the layers, the waves and the big ship. Quote fits perfectly. LOVE. xoDonna

  5. The image and the quotation fit together so well, and give a great feeling of comfort. I would certainly be longing for a safe harbour in weather like that. Wonderful pages, and the way you have represented the sea is marvellous.

  6. Pretty is in the eye of the beholder, m'luv, and I find this page stunning. Full of storm and gusting winds... Nature in one of her dark moods, and man stubbornly sailing her waters. It would be nice to see what happens next ;-D

  7. Fantastic Gina ;o) Lots of movement! Love this piece ;o)

  8. Ooooh that's really awesome and dramatic, thank you for all your build up pictures, always great to see how the art is built up over many layers!

  9. Great page, love watching the process pics, thanX for sharing them. xx

  10. Came over from IA. Great piece for the challenge and I really like the quote.


  11. Well, who said everything has to be "pretty?" I actually see beauty in this-the stormy sea and the the lovely quote. I appreciate the way you showed the layers you created!
