The Case File:
The Scheme: I used all 5 colours
Evidence: Clouds, stitching, things that fly (butterflies); circles, wings.
Testimony: I used the inspiration words "fly" and "dream". The journaling on the front is a quote by Erin Hanson that says; "There is freedom waiting for you, on the breezes of the sky, and you ask "What if I fall?" Oh but my darling, what if you fly?" The story behind this. Those that have followed my blog for a long time know that we are in full time ministry to the homeless and the addicted...that will always be a high calling from God and therefore the priority in my life. Over the years people have asked me whether I will put kits together or teach and my answer is always that "I know what I am and I know what I am not." Last year when Cariena asked me to pray about joining her for a mini event at Silverlakes in Pretoria...I wasn't too sure that it was the right thing. My darling husband urged me to go and do it...as long as whatever I do gives glory to the Lord...so I did it and loved every moment.
Some close ups:
Hand stitching is a bit of an addiction at the moment...and getting these vellum clouds onto the page without glue proved impossible...so ta da....stitch it! I had a larger die cut title in mind...but it just looked too heavy so I settled for the stamped title.
I am inspired to use the load of stamps in my stash. I adore the Finnabair stamps and on this layout I used quite a few of them.
The little row of hearts and the two circles were from the ephemera pack of the Kaisercraft Finders Keepers collection.
I just love the effect of the wings coming out from behind the photograph.....and no, I am no angel.
This quote was just perfect for this page....all in all I love how this page came about.
Thank you for visiting my blog. ♥♥
