I just finished a layout I started on Thursday. I wanted to use my favourite patterned paper of the July Hip Kit, a exclusive paper designed by Kim Watson. I knew that I wanted to back it behind a pretty background cut file and when I found the beautiful "heart explosion"cut file in the Just Nick store I knew that this was going to work perfectly to show off the pretty paper. Here is my page:
Some close ups:
I used some torn washi for the strips behind this little cluster. The flower was sprayed with Peony Color Bloom Spray to get the perfect pink colour.
As usual the hand sewing takes center stage. I just adore the "finished"look it gives my pages.
Lots of layers of patterned papers and project life cards with a glittery Maggie Holmes frame thrown into the mix.
I first coloured the leaf chippies with green ink and then randomly applied some creamy brown to tone it down a bit.
The photo on this page was taken during my favourite time of the day at my happy place. I found this lovely poem written by Mia Ford on the internet and used some of it's phrases as part of my journaling. It is just so beautiful that one can "see" it.
Day comes to an end
a fire starts to burn on the horizon
Its flames leap across the hills and plains it resides in
The golden light casts a glow of heavenly nature
Shimmering gold floats from heaven to earth
doves sing for one last time
Bunnies bounce for one last time
Kittens purr for one last time
One last time before today dawns again
Drive long into the sunset
Wait until the magic has past
This gift that God gives us is a rare treasure
Rubies and diamonds could never measure
The light and love the Lord leaves in the sunset
The radiance of kings is nothing to how the earth is put to bed
Drink in the rays of pure gold
Live in the light the Lord bestows
Take one more step
Sing one more note
Breathe one more breath
Before the day dawns again
