I did something I haven't done in a long time, I made a 12 x 24 layout! How long has it been? I think the last one I did was back in 2011. Seriously! So why now? Too many photos, really. That's generally what it comes down to. But it is nice to be working on a larger canvas. I'll have to remember that!
I haven't been crafting much lately because I have gotten back into my forgotten hobby - gardening! There was a point in time about five-six years ago that I was as hot and heavy about gardening as I am with my paper. So I figured it would be a good idea to commemorate my return to playing in the dirt with a scrapbook page. The paper is from DCWV's Delightful Stack which is now available at Michaels. I have used so much of this stack I have mostly just scraps left. It makes me feel to so thoroughly use a stack of paper. I really worked hard at making sure all of my favorite papers ended up on this layout.
There are a lot of little elements here. I added wood veneers by Recollections (available at Michaels), stamped them with ink and added embossing powder. I did the same with the wood veneer thought bubbles (Freckled Fawn) minus the embossing powder. The bling is from Doodlebug Designs, and the metal accents are from Momenta.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
