E for Evidence, F for Fool, G for Good Riddance

Oh this was FUN!!!!!!!!

The prompt 'Evidence" was from Blissfully Art Journalling. 

One thing led to another and soon it entered my little Personal Lexicon book and became E for Evidence, F for Fool and G for Good Riddance. One letter just seemed to flow happily into the next and formed a little story.

I never deliberately look at photo's of the ex (well, you wouldn't, would you; look at him...) but as soon as the idea of Fool came to me (as it often does when the ex comes to mind) I dug this up and went for it. The more I altered his photo and the picture of the jester, the more I laughed and lightened up.

Hey presto; it was an epiphany (I can feel another E page coming on). He looks so ridiculous (accurately so, may I add), that I think I can bear to look at it/him. 

I used some blackboard scrapbook paper for the background and gesso'd over it just leaving the words listen, learn and know visible, and then slightly changed them to make them appropriate to my journal entry.

I was not at all keen on the colours initially, but now the black and whiteness of it seems right for the Evidence theme.  

The words around the jester are just a few of my little pet names for him ;o) And some to describe how I believe his life has turned out so far.

How are the Blog Party preparations going for everyone? I have a little collection of things but no idea how to transfer them in a festive manner so will have to do more research.

I do, however, have a FABULOUS prize/giveaway, which I will reveal shortly. (What a little teaser I am!)

Off now, to consider the world, the universe, and the meaning of life............

Love it :> And having my own 'ex' I can empathise with the text and the emotions :)
Also love your other soul journal entries, they are wonderful. Glad I came and 'peeked'!!!

oh this is so hilarious. E,F,G and will you proceed through the alphabet? what a great story and sounds like you were freed even more from the jester.

Woohoo! What a page to introduce us to you!! Get it out and move on girl!! Can't wait to see more of your pages!

How fun to have a Personal Lexicon book to play in. It looks like a good outlet for you too! You ex does have the perfect face for the jester. LOL.

I'm glad that you have many more letters to work through as I'm interested to see how the story unfolds. I predict many adventures that leave the jester in the dust.

hey, another voice on your admirers list! With far too much in common... I am loving your pages. I am playing a little with having more than one journal going. I can't decide if it is freeing, challenging or confusing!!
