Some posts appear to have disappeared

Here I am about to post my make for A Inky Mess Challenge Blog for this month and I see that a load of posts appear to have disappeared. How did that happen?
Just so that I can keep track I am going to post a few things at a time before my DT work for A Inky Mess goes live.

February I was out of action totally after a nasty fall. Broke my humerus and femur and needed a hip replacement. Anyone that knows me on facebook would have seen some of the photos of my bruises. Not a pretty sight I must say as well as being extremely painful. I still suffer the aftereffects but soldier on we do.

First that I remember was the March post for A Inky Mess.

A little trinket box with modelling paste through a stencil, painted and various embellishments as seen. The "book pages" were covered in gilding flakes.

April's make - I needed more storage for my embossing powders. This 25x20x10 cm box was sitting there waiting for a makeover and just the right size.
Stenciling again with modelling paste. Some cogs and clock face from Tando Creative on the top with a bit of chain from stash. The corner embellishments are also Tando. The stencil round the sides is one of Andy Skinner's and the two stencils on the top are from Andy Skinner and France Papillon.
Acrylic paint (decoart) is my colouring medium of choice in mixed media hence the many layers of it here. Finished off with some patina antiquing cream before sealing with matt varnish.

That's 2 month's briefly caught up with.
