I have to say this really threw me out of my comfort zone but I was really happy with the end result.
Here is my layout.
The quote on the front of the layout says:
Live the life you've imagined.
My journalling on the back of the layout says:
I am not living the life I imagined - what I am living surpasses anything I could ever have imagined. I imagined having my own children, but was told by doctors that it would never happen and I have two of my own beautiful children and two perfect grandchildren. I imagined living in a little house with a white picket fence certainly not the magnificent big house that we have. I never imagined driving a car like my sleek, black, Talitha. And I certainly never imagined that I would get to travel as much as I do visiting exotic and far away places. Learning about people and cultures so different to mine. Broadening my horizons and teaching me to be more accepting of ways of life so different to mine. I am so very grateful for the life that I have and I would not change it for anything. Never stop dreaming big.
Here are some close ups.
I mirrored the sketch because it just looked better with my photos. The banners were cut with dark and light grey and also a piece of pattern paper that had the dark, light grey and a bit of white (5%) I added some sewing stamping in a light grey and outlined all of the papers with grey pen.
I painted the title gre and used a lighter grey pen and the stars were added, a silver star, a drawn star and a couple of star blings.. I added the flowers and more bling.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look and you still have a few days left to play along.
