Google+ What I Made Today: The Wings of Ugly Forgiveness

The Wings of Ugly Forgiveness

This journal spread was several weeks in the making. Funny how something so ugly can take so long to manifest. And, let me be clear, I choose that word ~ ugly ~ from a place of observance, not of judgement. March has been a rather ugly month, ripe with blind conflict, snow and cold that just won't quit, and Nona E just badgering me with endless challenges.

In fact, the right page of this spread is a message straight from the ol' wench.

All the same, the month flew by ... on the wings of ugly forgiveness. Like a strange angel.

Yeah. And I'm really looking forward to the cleansing baptism of the April showers. Yes I am. And I'm sharing this healing ugliness with my creative friends at Mix It Monthly and Art Journal Journey.

Peace.

March has been a hairy month for sure. Our winter was relatively mild here until March roared it's way in and blasted us with snow and cold and then teased us with warm days to only did into the frigid again. So looking forward to the growth of things in April with it's cleansing rains and warm sunshine. I do find the art rather attractive in it's own unique way ♥

What a very interesting angel - I think she goes well with the words you have used to describe your March.
Hope you have a wonderful April.

Amazing your bird page. May th april become much nicer for you. We have really april weather here in Germany. It rains, few minutes later snow, little later sunshine, really crazy.
But the spring flowers are growing and garden time is beginnig. Wish you a good time in your garden.
Dearest Greetings
