Ankles and such...

The ankle continues to heal, slowly. Meet my new BFF:

I bought this tensor brace last summer when I had a mild sprain ( I guess that makes this the fourth sprain, not the third.) At the time I didn't really need it but boy am I glad I have it now. I'm finding it's really helping with my mobility.
I'm STILL WAITING for a final diagnosis on my injury, tomorrow I'll be heading down to see my doctor to get some answers.
**Edited to add: Thanks to a fabulous Doctor today who went to bat for me, I finally have results. No fracture! Yay!!**
I have a new page up today. Thank goodness you can scrap with a sprained ankle, it's keeping me sane.

The page's background was made long before I knew what I was going to do with it. I started by using Distress Ink, water and a brayer. Ronda Palazarri has a great tutorial here. Then, I used one of Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's stencils and doodled it inside with Distress Markers. I also used the stencil with Glass Bead Gel.   I added some Italian screen printed paper I bought recently at the Paper Place, some Tim Holtz tissue tape, MME enamel dots, Simple Stories letters and wood veneers and crochet flower from Micheals.

If you are reading this in a reader, pop by and take a look at my new header today, I'd love some feedback.
Thanks for popping by!
