I have been MIA, from my blog, for a couple of weeks.....sometimes LIFE just gets out of hand.....and I won't tell you an untruth, there have been days of just LAZINESS!! LOL!
I have been working in some of my journals (during the lazy days.....just too lazy to scan, edit and post) This page was made for a couple of challenges (listed below) It was a fun page to make because I used different techniques and mediums.
The first layer was Gesso with ink added to tin the background. I used a daisy stencil and embossing ink for the background daisies, then pink and white embossing powder. The other flowers were embossed with white EP, then the color was inked in and fussy cut. The butterflies followed the same process. Once everything was glued down I used a couple of leaf stems and added the greenery. Around the edges of the page with some distressed ink for some aging and I was finished.
Pastel colors can sometimes be harder to work with, especially when trying NOT to add any black to the page......no that wasn't part of the "challenges".....just my own challenge.
Now I'm off to link up and take on the challenge of getting ALL my errands finished TODAY!
