Hi everybody! I changed my blog again. Every so often I feel like it needs something different and my mood changes so voila :) Do you like it?
I did a layout for OUAS' January sketch. The prompt was, Lessons Learnt. Ha, I'm 10 months away from the big 50, so you can bet I have learned TONS of lessons ;) I went with a very cheery paper line and bright bold colors. The paper is a gorgeous line from Webster's Pages, New Year New You. Check it out *HERE*. I really like their papers and extras. Great stuff. On to the layout. Here's the sketch -
Nadia, the blog owner designs the prettiest sketches. She is a fave for sure! Now here's my take on it -
Remember the rules of play here is that there must be journaling somewhere on your lo, mine is behind the pic on the little coral tag. It says -
As a mother of 6 I have learned many lessons. Especially since the first 3 were in my early 20's (#1 @ 16) and the last 3 in my late 30's. You have much more wisdom when you're older that you just lack in youth. While you're calmer and more easy going, you worry about different things when you have little ones and you're 40 that weren't a concern when you're in your 20's.
Isn't that so true though? Things that just never entered my head as a 23 yr old that as a wiser older person with so much more life experience came into play. Never mind knowing that if they didn't walk till they were 3 who cares, I don't have to run after them, lol, but life worries, like what's in store for them. Such a different perspective. Quite the experience, and I've run the gamete :)
I fussy cut some flowers from the paper and put it around part of the pic, some paper flowers sprayed with starburst spray as well. The leaves were a combo of chipboard I cut and a green rose I took apart and colored up more, then hot glued down. I love the chipboard trellisy thing I cut with my cricut and put behind the pic. I gesso'd it then used my silks in Pretty Peridot and Sunburst. It gives it such a pretty sheen! Cut the title and gesso'd, inked and silks too. Some banner words on the right side there with another of the pages. Stickles and pearls for the flower centers, and some stickles on my butterflies. What would a lo be without some butterflies :) The bling was originally white, but I used the silks in sunflower to make em yellow. I love it. The pic is me with my baby when we wemt cherry picking this past summer, who isn't so much a baby anymore, Santino will be 10 in February. He told me I have to cherish him these last few weeks since he's the last of the single digit kids. My baby boy is quite the character. He has been an adventure for me.
