....and found it Tuesday.
Yesterday it was a no go for my scrapbooking so I thought I would paint. I wanted to try a different layout for the same phot and do something different. I had art supplies at the ready for this first one and used Plaid Antique finish decoupage.It gives it a slightly weathered,aged look without going to brown.and mixed it in with MM Paint,Marine.The ribbon I have had for years and always loved it,I just didnt have the project to use it.
Then I thought I would try a layout with no colour. This is difficult for me to do because I love colour, ribbon, pattern papers and lots of embellishments.I wanted a layout with just black and white and the emphasis on the subject(who,by the way,is my niece Morgan)I needed it not to be boring so I used texture instead of "fluff". I am very happy with the result of this page. I love the layout,I love the photograph and I love the subject.
here are a few close ups of the details
