Hi everyone. I hope you had a nice weekend. Mine has been busy as my daughter came home again, and we had a fun family day at the lake. Before the rain returned that is.
Some of these burlap pages in my Dina Wakely journal (that I use as my garden journal) are harder to layout, mainly because certain media leaks through and the cloth doesn't have the stiffness of paper, but I still love the texture they give to the background. This time I stuck some wax paper behind this page and smeared on some blue acrylic paint to work with this scrap of paper that was on my desk.
I loved the blue (like the sky) and the touch of green (like the plants) on this paper, so I went for a collage page. I also love this quote (thanks Alison for including it in a set), and those 2 things are what directed me to make my page.
I used a few TH images for a couple of assorted packages, and then I also added some sequins to the paper. Life needs a little sparkle, and gardens certain add sparkle to the my day. Perhaps yours too?
Finally I added the clock button. It could stand for so many things about time, like the vintage images, about children growing up, about the season passing so quickly. The good thing about pages is you can interpret them in your own way.
Hope you have a great start to the new week.
