I so need a better camera...
This was a fun little layout though I agonized over the placement of the letters for days. This sat with the letters on it and I'd pass by it, move something, then walk away... then come back and move it again. I love, love, LOVE that journal paper from Lily Bee... unfortunately, my budget is all shot to heck from the refrigerator breaking down, so I won't be getting anymore of it any time soon... but I sure do love it. It distresses well with a variety of shades and it has perfect lines for journaling. The crackled brown paper is so old that I don't have a clue who made it, the corrugated green paper is from the Paper Company, the alphabet stickers are Colorbok sticky Stax, but I inked them with Soot Black Distress Ink because they were too bright for this page. Pop dots on the stars and wings are from All Night Media, and no big surprise, all other adhesion with the Tombow Mono. I keep getting inpsired by other people's pages and then revert back to my simple style. On the page, I have a hard time making things as complicated as they were in my head. I've made some serious progress in my scrap space and I can actaully do more than one project at a time right now. The goal will be to see if I can keep it that way, and continue to get things more organized.
By the end of the week, I should have new baby frames and beaded brads on the list over at www.shophandmade.com so please check them out.
