Treasure


Happy Saturday everyone! Finally home for a weekend and I got to play some today…after all, what better thing to do while laundry is washing then to get in a bit of scrappy time right! I created this layout for the current challenge at CSI..and the new palette is just gorgeous! I love CSI, not only does it get my creative juices flowing with the palettes but it gives me that push to get some journaling done on my layouts! I have used the new Prima Romance Novel collection, and the chippys and flowers are Dusty Attic, all available at the Flying Unicorn store. I have done lots of distressing and masking and some white washing with gesso on this one. I have scrapped this photo before of my grand daughter, but the beauty of giving so many of my layouts to my kids is that I get to rescrap my favs.

 The Sceme: use all colors in the palette. Check.

The Evidence: I have used lots of wet mediums…gesso, molding paste and glimmer mists. There is masking done with molding paste and distress inks. I also made my butterflies with stripes on them and added a little bird to the flower cluster. Check.


Testimony: My journal strips are based on the 5 Ws.
Case solved LOL!

Well that is it for today.  Have a great weekend everyone!  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J

Me too! Love your journalling, it's as if you can hear your grand daughter talking here, but that's also because you create so much life around your photos Shona. Well done!
