I found the photo on the web and it was just perfect for the colour theme and also for my journalling.
My journalling all around the edge of the layout are quotes that say:
When one door closes ... another door is opened. All you have to do is have the courage to step through. Take chances - a lot of them because honestly no matter where you end up, and with whom it always ends up the way it should. Your mistakes make you who your are. You learn and you grow with each choice that you make. Everything is worth it. Say how you feel always. Be you and be OK with it.
My journalling on the back of the layout says:
I don't believe that anything in life is random. I believe that everything that we do every single minute of every single day is made up of hundreds and thousands of choices and every one of these choices has a knock-on effect and these choices make us who we are. I believe that it is not always the choice we make but how we deal with those choices and the consequences of them that determine our course in life and EVERYTHING from what we choose to drink or eat, to where we go, who we see and what we say impacts on us. We always have a choice and it is what we do with that choice that counts. Apart from the obvious ones I don't think that there are right or wrong choices either. It all depends on what you need to learn. AND I am ok with that.
Here are some close- ups.
I used Bazzill cardstock for the background because I didn't think I was going to do much mixed media and I really hate when the paper buckles. I started off with a brick stencil and some black gesso for the brick work. I used some washi tape a punched border and some torn strips of paper for length and created the mat behind my photos with the same papers.
I added some rub-ons and used the same set to create my title Yellow Door. Then I decided to add some builders tape and some watercolour and then I added a few splatters. So much for not much mixed media huh?
Just to show you the layers. I love how this layout turned out. It just makes me happy. :)
Thanks for stopping by to take a look and for taking the time to leave me a comment. It really makes my day.
Till next time.
