Here is my take on the sketch.
I love circles (as long as it is not the photo :))
The quote on the front of the layout says:
It is no who you are that holds you back it's who you think you are not.
The little quote at the bottom says:
Life is a gift. Never forget to enjoy and bask in every moment you are in.
My journalling on the back of the layout says:
In all the years I have been married I have never gotten flowers from Simon for anything - that all changed when we moved into this house and then Si started to bring me flowers, sometimes for no reason at all. I asked him why one day and he said 'I don't know they just looked so pretty and I see how much you love them so I bought them for you' and I do - love them. For me there is nothing that brings me greater joy than the sight of fresh flowers. I used to buy my own for my studio... every week. Now some weeks I don't have to buy my own :) because he buys them for me. These beautiful flowers were for Easter. I know they are dyed to get that beautiful vivid colour but I just love them and the best part about them is that they last for two weeks or more, and I love even more that Si bought them for me. His reasoning for not buying them before was that they are expensive and then they die after a few days. I don't really care what changed I am just happy to get flowers - anytime, anywhere, anyhow and for any reason. THEY MAKE ME HAPPY.
Here are some close ups.
I wanted the flowers to really pop so I kept the rest of the layout neutral. I stitched the circle, something I have been playing with more and more on layouts.
The quote was stamped on and the bracket just painted black and left. I made a few splats of ink.
Another flower cluster at the bottom using the colours of the flowers in the photo. They really are so beautiful. I added some tickets and some round chippies too.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look I really do appreciate your visits and the time that you take to leave a comment. They make my day :D
