One of my pledges this year (I didn't make resolutions) is to blog regularly - so here I am - did you miss me? Did you? What do you mean no - LOL!
Anyway a very quick Wednesday post before my poor eyes give out completely - they've spent 8 hours looking at one of these flickering VDU screens so have to be quick!
I spent quite some time doing this layout, using some very old basic grey papers I'd got which were technically called Dasher (if my memory serves me) primarily because they were Christmas papers - but I love Christmas papers that turn out to be just that little bit versatile! On this layout I literally sat cutting the larger flowers out which was most fun, glossy accents and journaling along the leaves, some stitching (well you have to don't you) and a hand cut frame - hard work but worth the effort because I'm really pleased with the finished results! Managed to use a few brads up in the layout too so using up old supplies
stamped the title, used glitter pens to colour in and then glossy accents to finish
then the stitching led to some more stamping
and finally the handcut flower highlighted with glossy accents and a brad!
Hope everyone is having a good evening, I've read a few blogs tonight where life is throwing the odd curve ball at people and so just to let you know that you're in my thoughts! If you happen to pop by say hello!
