Journalling Theme: The following quote
" the best things in life aren't things"
You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. It is for your inspiration and this theme word DOES NOT need to be part of your title or journalling. But please make sure your layout is based on the sketch above and includes journalling (hidden journalling is fine). Acceptable journalling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long. Remember, hidden journalling (under a photo/tag or behind your page) is perfectly fine but please DO let us know in your post where your journalling is!
It is also perfect for the new challenge that is up at Scrap Around the World so I am entering it there too...
Here is their mood board.
I love to travel and the bicycle just reminds me of Amsterdam and I love green and yellow together.
Here is my take on the challenge.
I turned the layout on its side so that I could use it that way.
The quote on the front of the layout says...
The world of reality has it's limits, but the world of imaginations is boundless.
My Journalling on the back of the layout says.
I love to travel and I love to just get on a train or bus and head in a direction and see where it takes me. This is how Willy and I ended up at Zaanse Schans in the Netherlands, and what a day we had. This sweet little village has become a huge draw card for tourists and I loved it. Wooden buildings, quaint streets, little canals, ducks, shops and museums but NO tulips :(. Most of all I love the windmills along the river. We wandered around in and out of everything there was to see, had coffee, shopped for some gifts for back home, had a lovely lunch with a glass of wine, ended off with another coffee and headed home. Days like this leave me feeling so grateful to be alive and so grateful to be able to travel and take in all the beautiful sights this world has to offer. My heart full of love for my family and my life. Now I get to re-live it all again through my photos.
(These photos were taken outside the clog factory - we had spent a while going through the museum, factory/shop inspecting all the different clogs. This was what we looked at while we had our lunch too.)
Here are some close ups.
I added some watercolour into the triangular design of my layout and some splatter in green and back. I cut the chipboard piece so that it would be long enough to use on either side of the photos.
I covered the chipboard heart with some of the paper and added the flowers, and a couple of brads.
I painted the chipboard with Lindy's Magicals and although the bottom one looks very bright here it is not really that bright. then I added some yellow and gold embossing powder and heat set. the quote was also stamped.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look I really appreciate your visits. :D
