Huntsville


Last month Sarah over at the Paper Mixing Bowl asked me to be a guest designer for November. I was thrilled to play along. I love her approach to layout challenges...so many elements to consider! Here is the "recipe" I had to work with.




And here is what I came up with...




The Echo Park papers made it easy to stick to the white/brown/black colour scheme. I used butterflies as my elements from nature (plus the photo screams "nature"), I used several stencils with Texture Effect on the background. Plus I stamped the words on the journalling card and some yellow twine counts as a fiber. I journalled about the special time we had in Huntsville, despite the fact we were there for a funeral. Exploring beautiful locations like that with someone special really puts life into perspective.

Here are a few detail shots...







PP~ Echo Park
Twine~ American Crafts
Stencils~ Crafters Workshop
Gesso~ Folkart
Texture Effect~ Martha Stewart
Chipboard letters~ Basic Grey

Thanks Sarah for a great challenge! I hope to play along again soon!
