So, I realised there was one digital download I had yet to use and it is the Hero Arts Digital Download Go Wild DK117 which has a groovy leopard and zebra print and so this layout is all about using those and of course, flowers, for the ‘flower power’ theme. They just look so groovy. I coloured them in photoshop and printed them out on gloss photo paper and cut them up into strips to create my photo matt. They were a bit too clean and even though I stamped around the edges, I still wanted to grunge things up a bit and so I grabbed some brown ink and dribbled that around the edges. I was happy then!
After that it is the ever arduous job of digging through my huge supply of ephemera and finding the right pieces to use. I think that is the part I enjoy the least in the creative process, just having to find the pieces I want with regards to ephemera, perhaps I am just lazy, I am not sure, I just find it tedious is all. Anyway, lots of flowering and embossing of chipboard and die cutting and then loads of blingy embellishment to finish it off. It is all pretty groovy and comes together nicely – I think so anyway. Couple of close ups.
Now I have this new family with all these children in my life, I have an abundance of photo’s to use and so I must print some out. Too funny, I went from a really boring life in the city, on the outskirts more so to a busy life in rural New South Wales, Australia and with 4 children now there are always photo opportunities to be taken advantage of. Whereas before, we never did anything and were totally non social and so I never had anything to take photo’s of which is why I started leaving a blank canvas. Funny how life changes, as long as it is always for the better.
Stay well people, remember to smile and take the time to appreciate everything that passes you by. Smiles, Delia
