Wow!!! hasn't the year just flown? October already sooo close to Christmas and the mayhem that the season brings! Stll I did find the time to create a little something for the WW1 challenge.
The requirements were Black & Paint/mists.
I thought it was outside my comfort zone so gave it a shot with a photo that my Mum found a while ago of my brother and I. It is kind of special as my bro' lives far far away (in USA) I do not get to see him too much. The photo really reminded me of how much fun we had as kids on picnics out in the bush. Enough already!!! on with the LO.
Then added the tissue paper with a glue stick, moulding it into the shape I wanted, really did not know what I was doing at this stage just slapping bits and pieces everywhere!
I found I wanted to say too much for the space I'd set for the journalling so made a small tag with stuff I couldn't fit on (I was getting a little sentimental and Gooey so no one needs to witness that) and tucked it in behind the photo as a pull out.
Made a few flowers, with tissue tape and string. Mum gave me this really cool daisy maker thingy she has had for years ( I remember making these as a kid) you are meant to join the daisies together to make a shawl or baby jacket but just thinking about that sent me a little "Ga Ga"! Can you imagine joining all those petals together ????.... Sorry.... off on a tangent again!
I just grunged up the chipboard with white paint, did not really want it to stand out just wanted a blended look overall. (All the chipboard is from ScrapFX).
And that is the story of the page. See you all next time and thanks for dropping by!
