"1 moment"

The first page that I want to share with you is from a sketch that I found on 52 sketches...52 weeks. It is her sketch 16 and it was one of the 'possibilities' for the DT submission.

I am really trying to pop out of my bubble and try more techniques. For instance, the grey paper behind the picture, I did not have the actual paper in this shape, so I had to come up with a way to create it. And if you know my style, I cannot free hand. I have no artistic ability that can magicly draw out shapes and have them turn out looking like anything recognizable... :)) I took my cricut and cut two of the shapes that I needed at 11 inches and then traced the shape by piecing them side by side to get the shape I wanted!

For the journaling, I stamped three separate journal pieces and ripped the edges. This is something that I am really trying to get better with. I have not been very good with journaling in the past, and it is a resolution....so far so good!!!

The journaling reads... This is but one moment when time stands still, and I can reflect on how perfect you are. How much my heart has grown every moment spent loving you. And looking forward to every moment to come. I am Blessed!

This was another possible submission for the DT. It was sketch 12, and in this one, I played with a little paper cutting and colors. Like the blue flower...I would have put on a green, white, or pinkish to go with the colors of the page...but I saw this blue and it just kind of worked...still not sure why, but I like it!! :)

More tomorrow!!!

Happy Scrappin'

#4 ~ I GOT PAGES DONE THIS WEEKEND!!!! The last month has been crazy around our homestead. We took spring pictures of the kiddos...packing for the move, still looking at houses...blah blah blah...but I scrapped!!!! It felt soo great to get some pages done!!

This is one of the few from this weekend. This picture is of all 4 kids piled onto the couch to give Tyler a hug. And if you look really close, you can see all four!! lol

The wings are from Tim Holtz grundge board pack. I used chalk to color the wings and then covered with a clear coating of Glossy Accents topped with a pearl dot.

I did the same for the letters although I did not coat them completely with the chalk...giving it that broken up look that the paper has.
More pages tomorrow!!!
