And... Here is what I did with it.
My journalling on the back of the layout says:
I love to take pics of details, like the bicycle and the little chair and tables as well as the window boxes outside of this little restaurant in the streets of Krakow. I love the rich red of the geraniums against the warm yellow of the walls, the earthy terracotta pots and the stripey awnings over the windows, it creates such a welcoming feel that says please come in and stay awhile. It is one of the things that I love about summer in Europe. The sun comes out and the weather gets warmer and everyone dresses the front of their houses and shops with all kinds of little curiosities and it really creates a holiday atmosphere.
People have said to me that taking photos of things like this means nothing as it could be anywhere but I don't care it means something to me and everytime I look at them I know exactly where they are from and how it made me feel and that is important to me. How I felt.
Here are some close ups.
I loved the rich, warm colours of the photos and these Graphic 45 papers were just perfect for it. I thought the chipboard bricks were perfect for this layout too. I water coloured them a rich yellow first and I then added touches of brick embossing powder to them to give added texture. The butterflies were made using a Martha Stewart punch.
I cut out some sayings from the sheets of paper that fit with my colour scheme and my idea. The lamp post chippie and the title JOY was painted black and also randomly embossed and I added a yellow background to the lamp post glass to look like light. Lastly I added the builders mesh and the flowers.
Here you can see one of the journalling cards that I cut out and tucked in. I love the vibrant colour.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look, and for taking the time to leave a comment for me. I really appreciate it.
Have a wonderful weekend and I will be back soon.
